Random Five Friday

My thoughts today for Random Five Friday:

1.) Tomorrow, my friend, Donna and I are planning a morning of antiquing, farmers’ “marketing”, greenhouse shopping and lunch.  The antique shop sends out an email with photos of new items, and one in particular has caught my eye. They don’t show prices, so I’ll have to wait and see. Hopefully, I’ll have a new treasure to share photos of next week.

2.) I was contacted by email yesterday and asked for permission to use one of my photos in the creation of a web-site highlighting our county.  I’m very honored. This is the photo that they’re planning to use:

3.) Here’s this week’s “silly Gypsy” photo. I’m  not sure exactly what she was doing with her hind legs here…

4.) In addition to the deer, squirrels, rabbits, ducks, geese and swans that frequent our yard, this week, we saw a wild turkey.  It’s the first one we’ve ever seen here, but I wasn’t quick enough to get a picture.

5.) The first thing I do every morning is open the living room curtains. Wednesday morning, I was just in time.
