Random Five Friday

Friday again!

Here’s my randomness for this week:

1.) I think I’m finally nearing the end of what is (so far) a ten-day long cold/sinus issue. That red nose you see glowing in the distance may not be Rudolph’s….

2.) Yesterday morning. “A sunrise is God’s way of saying: ‘Let’s start again’.” ~Todd Stocker

morning 12-18-2013 6-49-32 PM

3.) Shopping trip planned today with my friend, Bev.  Her 4-year old great niece, Stella, will be with us, so it will be fun.

4.) Motor Man took this picture yesterday of a sound-asleep Gypsy. Yes, that’s a spark plug on the counter beside her bed. Why she hasn’t knocked that on the floor yet, we can’t imagine. (I think Santa needs to bring someone a larger bed….)


5.) Am I ready for Christmas?  Almost. How about you?

  1. Thank goodness your cold is getting out of town, have to be able to taste Christmas dinner. Beautiful sunrise snap, I needed to start all over today.. 🙂 Thank you for trying to help with my blog issue yesterday! Sweet Gypsy. You know how they love to squeeze in tight places. We are ready for Christmas.. 😀

  2. So glad you are feeling better. Your Rudolph line was cute. Gypsy is certainly growing and I love, love the ice skate on the sled. I wonder…can you skate on the river in January?

  3. Glad you are feeling better. Colds are no fun during the holiday season.

  4. Oh, there’s hope at the end of the cold/flu thing. I’m going on my 9th day with it, and I sure hope it’s nearing the end! Anyway, Gypsy looked adorable in her bed (maybe catnip dancing in her head instead of sugar plums?). Your sled/ice skate decoration is just beautiful. I love it! ♥

  5. So glad you are feeling better. Love the sled.

  6. Love all your random photos. I sure hope that cold moves on….you’ve had it way too long!

  7. Darn! I wish you could dump that nasty cold BEFORE Christmas! You need all the energy you can get with that busy life of yours…have fun with Bev today and yes I’m thinking “new bed” should be on Gypsy’s Wish List!!


  8. sweet gypsy. good luck shopping!

  9. Another good Random5 ! I’d say Gypsy’s got the right idea; but her bed is looking a little smaller 😉 Hope your cold goes soon ….

  10. Oh! Wes LOVES #2!

  12. Oh, so this is the home of Sammy Kimmell’s girlfriend Sundae. So nice to meet you.

  13. Love the sled and ice skate/greenery/bow. Are these antique finds? Your photos always make me smile.

  14. Helped my mother finish her shopping last night. Just discovered some of my backordered items from online shopping aren’t going to be available until after Christmas. Guess we know what I’m doing tomorrow.

  15. I’m sending you lots of good Christmas wishes your way. And, I am looking forward to getting together with you soon. Merry Christmas

  18. I love your sled! Gypsy is quickly outgrowing her bed. Beautiful sunrise. Have fun shopping. I think we’re finished, but I said that yesterday, too. Now to wrap…

  19. Two of my indoor cats have identical beds and I do think they like the small size… 🙂 Love the proverb about starting over… that’s what I’m doing today with my sweet tooth cravings. No mas! Merry Christmas Dianna.

    I love your sled Christmas decoration. Gypsy does need Santa to bring her a new bed. How she is growing!
