Random Five Friday

It was another quiet week around here…but I think I can “round up” a little randomness.

1.) This planter on Main Street in our little town has been beautiful all summer. I’m amazed that the petunias are still so pretty this late into the fall.

2.) Last weekend, I spotted this boat with the bright blue sail, and went up to the balcony to take pictures of it.  Note the Canada Geese; thankfully they’re in the water and not in our yard. As much as I dislike them, whenever I see a group of them, I find myself counting to be sure there’s an even number. Since they mate for life, I’m always sad to see an odd number. (32 in this group.)

3.) The swans haven’t been here for a couple of weeks. How do you miss an “uncuddly” animal this much?

4.) Update to the “squirrel and biddy” story: Yesterday morning, around daybreak, I went out into our garage to get something from my car. As I was about to walk back in the house, I heard something that sounded just like someone knocking on the exterior door. Frightened, I hurried in the house, but then turned around, and, through the window of the door, saw THE squirrel up in the little planter. He was busy burying another walnut, or perhaps the same one…who knows? The sound I heard was him causing the planter to bump against the door.  At least, this time, he just moved the biddy over a little and didn’t remove it from the planter. Okay, squirrel wins, I’ll leave the walnut there.

5.) A friend posted this little video clip on her Facebook page,  so I shared it on mine. But I thought I’d also share it with my blogging friends. It’s really cute, but I have a feeling this little fella was “put up” to this by someone… Whether that was the case, or this was his idea, his parents have their hands full with him.

Happy Weekend!
