Random Five Friday

The first RFF of the New Year!

1.) When I was a a little girl, my sister, June, would occasionally knit a sweater for me. Then she’d use the leftover yarn to knit a coat for my Barbie doll. (Sadly, when I was about 13, I gave away all my Barbies and clothes.) This year, for Christmas,  June gave me a pair of hand-knit socks.  Mmmmm…toasty!

2.) A few days ago, the morning sky was beautifully amazing with contrail X’s.

3.) Do you think Gypsy has officially outgrown her bed?  She continues to ignore the brand new, larger one that Santa brought her.

4.) Update on the tablet that Motor Man and I got for Christmas: the Verizon store didn’t have the protective case for it the day we bought it, so they ordered it and had it sent to us.  After two days of trying to figure out how to put it on the tablet, we gave up and went back to Verizon to watch them have them do it.  Motor Man said they all probably had a good laugh when we left the store.

5.) Ever since we went sleigh riding in Townshend, Vermont last year around this time, I’ve kept the town as a favorite in my weather app.  This morning, it’s four degrees there. Yesterday, they had 3.5 inches of snow, and another inch is forecast for today. Is it possible to be homesick for a place you’ve only been once (for two days) in your life?
