Good Fences #100

Congratulations to TexWisGirl and Good Fences #100!

The last fence in my folder was taken at Mount Trashmore. (Time to get out and find some more!) You may have to look closely to see the erosion-control fence. A brisk wind that day kicked up white caps on the water.

Willy Nilly Friday 5 #70

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.

Random 5 Friday

Random 5 Friday

1. A recycling event takes place at Mount Trashmore Saturday. I should be helping hubby…

2. Today’s been a productive day–paperwork, card-making, a little weeding, feeder scrubbing, birdbath filling–I even vacuumed before going out to play. My back is doing much better!

3. I should have taken pictures–I potted dwarf marigolds and sedum. Will have to post those next week.

4. This week, someone purchased a winning lottery ticket about a block from our house–$3,000,000!

5. Our son-in-law was cleared by his doctor earlier this week to run a 50-mile race tomorrow (Saturday). He’d had a stress fracture in his leg. Go Charlie! 

Have a great weekend! Hubby says there’s a trip to Lowe’s and/or Home Depot in our future. Do you have plans?
