Friday Memes

Friday–time for Willy Nilly Friday 5 #71 and Friday’s Hunt!

This week’s hunt includes: The Letter G, Week’s Favorite, and In My Kitchen

1. Hubby wasn’t feeling well Thursday, and came home from work early (gasp!) Friday. If you know him, you know that’s a rare occurrence. 

2. On top of that, we got snow this afternoon. White flakes and black birds fell from the sky, covering the yard.

Four-and-Twenty Blackbirds…

3. In My KitchenOur daughter said with all those blackbirds, I should make a pie. I made cobbler instead. Oh, and I used blackberries, instead of blackbirds.

…baked in a pie…

4. I removed the 6″  extension piece from my Canyon Hoops hula hoop today, making it 38″  and decreasing the weight to 1.5 lbs. It was like starting all over again, but I finally got the hang of it. I’m really enjoying it. I managed two 10-minute aerobic workouts.

5. For the Letter GThe Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) started today. It runs through Monday, February 15. Click the link to find out how to participate. They have a photo contest, too. The minimum requirement for birdwatching/counting is 15 minutes. Then you log your findings onto the bird list on the website. Changes in bird migration patterns, the number of birds, etc., are detected this way. 

Who’s counting? This is my Week’s Favorite shot.

Willy Nilly Friday 5

1. I was determined (obviously, not nearly enough) to post early this morning. Late again. Romans 7:15 comes to mind, where Paul, the apostle, can’t understand what he’s doing, why he can’t seem to do what he wants to do, but keeps doing the same thing! 

2. I did manage to straighten up a few things around the house and sort through the endless paper that finds its way in–the notes I wrote to myself, the recipes I printed out, the catalogs that came in the mail…I’m sure you’re quite familiar with it.

3. I added a new (fun) piece of exercise equipment to my repertoire–a weighted hula hoop! Take that, flabby abs! (Talking to myself.) It really is fun, but it seemed like it was easier when I was a kid! I don’t think the ones we had then were weighted, though.

4. I climbed the steps to the top of Mount Trashmore last week. I hadn’t been up there in a long time. It was windy and cold! That is our Town Center in the distance. 

5. And yes, I obeyed the sign and went back down via the stairs.
