Random 5 Friday

Random 5 Friday

I am so happy to announce: Nancy and Random 5 Friday have returned to the world of blogging! Check out the blue link for the rules to join the fun, and maybe even make some new friends. 

1. It’s a bit above freezing today, and the sun came out and melted some of our 5-inches of snow. I sneaked a peek at the week ahead on The Weather Channel app and saw temperatures in the 60s on Wednesday. That put a spring in my step! I don’t care if it rains, I’m going to be outside somewhere!

2. I haven’t accomplished as much as I would have liked during this Ice Age.

3. I was gifted a Fitbit wristband and like the motivation factor of it. I know what I need to do, now I just need to DO IT.


4. This is how my day started: Unloading the dishwasher, I dropped the latte mug on the cereal bowl. Thankfully, the mug remained intact–I can do without cereal!

5. The Mancuso Quilt Show is in town this weekend. 

Welcome back, Nancy. We missed you!
Have a great weekend, everyone!

Thankful Thursday: Snow Day

Thankful Thursday:  Snow Day

A snow day is not something I look forward to, but today, I’m thankful to have one. For a little while at least, it seems like the world slows down. There are fewer cars traveling the road in front of the house, and they’re driving a slower pace. The snow muffles some of the sounds. With 5-inches of snow, a lot of birds show up at the feeders. Well, it was quiet for awhile!

Weekly Photo Challenge–Rule of Thirds

Weekly Photo Challenge

The challenge this week is to compose subject off-center, obeying the Rule of Thirds. Hop into the Time Machine with me, and we’ll go to a warmer place in time. This is necessary because–SURPRISE!–we are the recipients of MORE SNOW. Grab your sandals and let’s go! Last one in the car is the rotten egg. Yikes! I transported myself all the way to childhood. 

Clicking on any photo will enlarge and bring up a slide show, which might be a necessity to see the dragonfly.
