Random Five Friday

Here are my thoughts on this Good Friday:

1.) The mini-hurricane we had Tuesday night must have kept Sundae awake. This is how she spent most of Wednesday morning.

2.) Yesterday, Motor Man and I had lunch with friends: two couples we hadn’t seen in quite awhile.  It was nice to catch up, but I’m sorry I didn’t ask someone to take a picture of the six of us. The restaurant was busy, and there just didn’t seem to be the opportune moment for a photo.

3.) When we arrived home yesterday afternoon, Motor Man noticed a (recently built)  osprey nest on the breakwater at the marina.  With binoculars, from our kitchen window, we have a good view of it. I’m looking forward to watching the family and sharing photos. This picture was taken from our yard, using a long lens. If you enlarge, you can see Mama (I’m guessing?) on the nest.

4.) I posted this picture on Facebook yesterday for Throwback Thursday, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang. (Sorry, FB friends, for the “rerun”.)  My first car was a (used) pale yellow Mustang that I wish I still owned. I came across this picture, taken by my mom, recently. The date: 9/11/71.

5.) Sunday morning, we’re planning breakfast with Marshall, then, later, lunch with Motor Man’s family.  We have a new great-nephew, just a few weeks old. We’re looking forward to meeting him and spending time with everyone.

Happy Easter, everyone.

(Update: I’ve just learned that Nancy is ending her blog, A Rural Journal. So there is no link-up at this time for Random Five Friday. I will, however, continue to have my own R5F here on These Days.)
