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.)

  1. Great random photos…..how fun that you have an osprey next “in your back yard” (practically). I hope you all have a fabulous Easter!

    Hugs, Pam and Sam

  2. Wonderful random 5! Sundae looks so sweet! Sounds like great days this week! You still look wonderful! Have a great Easter.

  3. I love osprey! We have some large birds nesting on our property…they are HUGE and they are definitely some type of water fowl. I’m trying to get a photo, but they are camera shy.
    Love the throwback photo!

  4. I am excited about the ospreys! I had a green Mustang that looked about the same model year. AND a hair style totally similar to yours.. 😀 If you are going to keep doing R5F I may join you!

  5. What fun to have new neighbors at These Days of Mine. I look forward to any updates. You had one cool car back in the day.

  6. I’m glad you posted the throwback pic again. It really brought back memories! Looking forward to watching the osprey family over the months.

  7. I LOVE R5F – always look forward to it. The mustang photo is wonderful – long sleeves and white-bordered shorts – those were the days! I remember your mustang and thought it was ‘nifty’.

  8. Oh, those Mustangs are so darn cool. I remember my bro-in-law’s cousin bought a brand new souped up, fancy Mustang in 1968 and took us cruising in it. We felt so cool that night! Glad you’re continuing your R5F; it’s always fun!

  9. Look at that hot little thing next to the Mustang – what a great photo, Dianna! Beautiful then and now 🙂

    Sundae looks perfectly cozy on her window perch …

    Happy Easter to you !

  10. Precious photo of Sundae. Bless her heart. She must’ve been worn out from worry.
    Awesome about the osprey.I look forward to updates and photos. You all are so lucky to be in an area with so much wildlife within viewing distance.
    Boy you sure were one groovy chick with a cool car. Gotta love the 70’s.lol
    Hope you have a great weekend.
    Happy Easter. 🙂

  13. It’s nice to see new lives on the water. There is a dead deer in the marsh behind my house 😦 The circle of life…

    Sundae had a rough night Wednesday too by the looks of it. I am looking forward to the coming blogs on the Osprey. Hope you and the family have a Happy and Blessed Easter.

  17. Happy Easter back Dianna. I love your Random 5, and especially the one of you and the yellow mustang – both beauties.

  18. I may do R5F sometimes, too, it’s a fun format. I could see you cruisin’ about town in that Pony. Can’t wait to watch the osprey family! Can I use the wind as my excuse to sleep in tomorrow?
