Random Five Friday

Last night, I prepared this post for today. And as I double-checked this morning over at A Rural Journal, where Random Five Friday is hosted, I saw that Nancy is taking a little blogging break over the holidays. Oh well, here are my five random thoughts anyway….!

1.) We had a very nice Thanksgiving. Marshall came for breakfast, then later in the day, we joined Motor Man’s family for a mid-day meal.

Sundae, hiding from the camera!

2.) I feel like the old”cow’s tail”, but I just recently discovered Shutterfly. What a user- friendly site! (I’ve been ordering Christmas gifts….shhhhh.)

3.) As I was downloading pictures from my camera chip today, I came across this one. Motor Man and I were crossing the little bridge in nearby Rescue, Va one morning last week and noticed how clear and pretty the water was. So we stopped for a picture. Or two. Or ten.

4.) We’re having a few of my former classmates over tonight after dinner. Light refreshments, catching up, reminiscing. (When we’re all together, I usually laugh until my stomach hurts.) I’m making party meatballs, using a recipe I’ve had for over 30 years. Yummy!

5.) I’m planning to start decorating for Christmas this weekend.  Just a couple of weeks ago, I was dreading the whole process, but now, for some reason, I’m looking forward to it!

Your (random) thoughts today?
