Random Five Friday

It’s Friday, again, after a fairly quiet week around here. Let’s see if I can come up with five randoms…

1.) Motor Man and I spent a lot of time Wednesday out on “the point” in our yard. We got up at 5:30 and watched the Blood Moon eclipse (I didn’t get a good picture.).  That evening, we watched as the International Space Station whizzed by. Did you know you can sign up for email notifications as to when the ISS will be visible in your area? My friend, Donna, clued me in about it quite awhile ago, and we’ve seen it several times, including the past three nights. It’s really amazing to watch it soar across the sky.

2.) Later Wednesday evening, I did manage to get this picture of the moon rise. As I noted on my Facebook page, I’m always reminded of the CCR song Bad Moon Rising. They sure don’t write ’em like they used to.

3.) My friend, Bev, and I went beachcombing earlier this week.  She found a sweet shard of frosted cobalt blue. Was I jealous? Nah. Well, maybe a little.  We’re really going to miss our “therapy” when winter arrives. A work boat rumbled just offshore this week during our visit.

4.) Would you be brave enough to plan an outdoor wedding on the beach in October? Saturday, when we were on the Outer Banks, we happened upon a wedding. It appears that the ceremony had just ended.  They had a picture perfect weather day. “Happy is the bride the sun shines on.”

5.) Finally, regarding the “hidden something” in the picture I posted Monday of me at the Sea Glass Festival: I was referring to the name of the booth in the picture: “Just Beachy Keen”. It seemed appropriate to stand there, since our last name is Keen, a fact some of you may not know.  A few of you picked up on that, and several of you mentioned the butterfly pin on my scarf. It isn’t sea glass; just a little scarf clip I picked up quite some time ago, and it just happened to perfectly match the scarf Pam gave me.
