Random Five Friday

As we head into the Memorial Day weekend, here are a few random thoughts:

1.) I never knew until I was told by a friend recently, that if you plant amaryllis bulbs outside in the spring, they’ll bloom again!

2.) Thank you for all the kind, encouraging comments on yesterday’s post; THAT’S why I blog!

3.) Growing up, I remember hearing my Mom, her siblings and my Grandma say that a storm was “following the river”.  We lived about 8 or 10 miles from the river, and whether or not storms actually follow the river, I don’t know. But that sure looked to be the case at our house last night.

4.) Found this “rain chime” at Tractor Supply this week.  I’m doubtful that it will actually do any chiming, and I certainly won’t be outside in the rain to hear it if it does, but I do think it’s cute hanging from the tree.

5.) My plans for the holiday weekend include a Farmers’ Market, lunch with friends, and possibly a little ride to the Outer Banks: just Motor Man, me and about a hundred thousand of our closest friends….

Have a safe weekend!
