Random 5 Friday

Welcome to Random 5 Friday where we share five random things about us, our family, whatever comes to mind, basically. Then we link to Nancy’s blog, A Rural Journal, and see what randomness others have shared. Join in the fun! There are a lot of great folks over there.

1. The rain from this nor’easter effectively rid our yard of snow–and the wind took care of everything else that wasn’t nailed down.

2. I enjoy feeding and watching birds in my backyard.

Birds? What birds?

3. I found a way to enjoy those snowy house-bound days–I fixed lunch and invited a few friends over.

4. Wishing my daughter a Happy Birthday! She’ll be celebrating at home this year, after she placed her family under quarantine. They’ve been sharing colds, stomach virus,  and strep for nearly a month. In a family of nine, that’s a lot of cleaning.  She says she’s giving up carpet for Lent.

5. Not sure if I’ve shared this mermaid. She didn’t show up in a photo search.

I hope you have a great weekend!
