Random Five Friday

Can you believe that Friday has rolled around again? Here are this week’s R5:

1.) Yesterday, we added one more “wild creature” to those who share our yard with us. It only took three weeks for a hummingbird to discover my feeder. I’m hoping he/she spreads the word to friends. (I read that hanging red ribbons on the feeder may help draw hummers. Since it was taking so long for them to find it, I really decked it out in red.)

2.) A couple of days ago, Motor Man called me to come quickly with the camera. He had spotted a tiny fawn out in our yard. By the time I made it to the window, the fawn had gone into the marsh grass. He seemed to be lost; hope his mama wasn’t too far away.

3.) Marshall recently sent me this picture of his kitty, Snugg, relaxing in the bird bath. Snugg is such a ham.


4.) Yesterday we had storms and over an inch of much needed rain. The sky was beginning to clear later in the evening, and I had a feeling the sunset would be a pretty one. But I tired of waiting for it (8:28), and had changed into my jammies. (Guess I’ve officially attained the status of old lady.) Motor Man was nice enough to get a picture for me us.

5.) Weekend plans include antiquing with a friend, a birthday party for our great niece, Livy, racing and possibly a Sunday adventure with Motor Mum.

Happy Weekend!
