Five on Friday - March 12, 2021

 Hello there!  Thanks for popping in to see what my five for today are.  Let's get right to it ~

1.  Daylight Saving Time
Don't forget to set your clocks up one hour Saturday night / Sunday morning!  Daylight saving time is here!  I'm a little sad about losing an hour this weekend, but the thrill of having more light at the end of the day by far makes up for it.  When daylight saving time begins, it just seems more like spring and I'm definitely here for that!

James Patterson is trying something a little different - his new detective drama, "The Coldest Case", came out Thursday on Audible and marks the prolific storyteller's first audio-only production.  The story is nine chapters long and takes approximately four hours to hear it all.  It's got quite the cast:  Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones) and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Saved by the Bell).  Here's the summary from Amazon ~

In The Coldest Case: A Black Book Audio Drama, homicide detective Billy Harney sends his new partner, Kate, deep undercover in a notorious Chicago drug ring. When several members of the ring soon turn up dead, Billy abruptly pulls Kate out, blowing her cover. Kate’s informant inside the gang quickly disappears. As does the ring’s black book....

When Billy can’t find the informant, he wonders if Kate is secretly harboring her, since the two grew close during Kate's weeks undercover. As Billy and Kate investigate the ring’s murders, they’ll be pulled into a dangerous web of corrupt politicians, vengeful billionaires, drugged pro-athletes, and violent, dark web conspiracies, all in search of the missing black book.

Are you getting ready to do some spring organizing?  These labels are just the thing you need!  The set comes with 157, water-resistant pantry labels ready to stick on your containers.  I have to admit that I'm pretty excited to get these in my hands and start labeling everything in my pantry.  My set is arriving on Saturday!

4.  Margarita Pops
Hey Margarita lovers - there's a new product coming this month that you are going to love!  Cutwater Spirits is introducing their 12-pack frozen margarita pops!  The flavors include mango, strawberry, pineapple, and lime.  Each pop is only 80 calories too.  These are going to be the perfect addition to our summer fun!

5.  Oh no...

We've had quite the week over here.  My mom was in the hospital for a few days.  Thank heavens she is doing okay now!  We also celebrated our son's 30th birthday.  With all the excitement from the week, we are ready for a calm, peaceful weekend!  Pop back in on Monday to see what we end up doing.


  1. I reorganized the pantry last month but I still have sticky notes on my containers, so I desperately need those labels.

  2. So good to hear your mom is doing ok! Thoughts for her continue recovery! That audio book cast is fantastic. So much fun!

  3. I hate losing that hour of sleep but I do love the extra light at the end of the day.

  4. Costco has those pops. They are good!
