Random Five Friday

Happy Friday from (still) wintery southeast Virginia, where our high today is expected to be 29.  My randomness for this week:

1.) Although winter returned yesterday, on Wednesday, we had a little sunshine and temps in the 70’s. My friend, Bev and I managed to get in a shelling trip. Although our found treasures weren’t all that great,  we enjoyed walking along the shore. We call it our therapy.

2.) Motor Man and I make our bed every morning….as a general rule. Wednesday, I had an early appointment, and, before we had a chance to make the bed, Sundae decided that she wanted to be under her (blue) blankie. So that’s how we left her. When we returned a couple of hours later, not only had she emerged from her blanket, but she’d also retrieved her toy octopus and brought it up on the bed with her. She must have gotten lonely.

3.) I’m sure I’ll be hearing from Gypsy’s “fan club” if I don’t share a photo of her, too. So here she is in her favorite spot: Motor Man’s shoulder.

4.) I took this picture of the sunrise last Friday morning, It’s one of my favorite pictures I’ve taken recently. Thankfully, most of that snow is gone. Sorry, Facebrook friends, for the rerun.

5.) Motor Man and I have a “breakfast date” in the morning with friends. I’m looking forward to it!

What are you looking forward to this weekend? (Hope it includes sunshine and warm(er) temps!)

  3. Sundae looks right at home on/in your bed – with Mr. Octopus, too!
    That sunset photo is gorgeous — like a painting — you ought to blow that one up and frame it 🙂 and Gypsy – what a sweetie.

    Enjoy your breakfast date – that’s my favorite meal to go out for 🙂


  4. Mom’s birthday is next week, #89, so we’re taking her out on Sunday. Can’t wait to see everyone + it’s the start of our spring break. Yay!
    Have a wonderful breakfast and weekend.

  5. Love the fur baby.pictures!! Easy to tell who rules the Keen house and shop! Glad you got in your therapy session on Wed. It’s hard to believe it was 70 degrees on Wednesday with the blast of cold today!

  6. You need to enter the sunrise photo into a contest, Dianna. It is spectacular! If you ever think about making it into greeting cards, let me know.

  7. We are looking forward to warming temps and SUN! Hoping that trend hits your bit of country! Lovely sunrise!!!

  8. Oh, Dianna!! That is one of the most beautiful of your photos I’ve seen yet. Absolutely gorgeous.

  9. Hopefully, being able to get to church!

  10. cute looking cats you have there! I am hoping for warmer drier weather and sunshine this weekend here in DFW also. (Just visiting from R5F)

  11. Enjoy your breakfast date with your man! Walking along the shore is the best therapy. Sundae and Gypsy are adorable. Thank you for the rerun. It is a stunning shot. Happy Friday!

  12. I agree with everyone else – that sunrise photo is one of my new favorites – should be committed to canvas. We’re looking forward to breakfast too!

  13. Yep, that sunrise photo is off the charts!

  14. Love the octopus! Jack would be jealous if I showed her the photo. Lol. Thanks for joining in Dianna!~ xo

  15. yup, we finally have sunshine again, and although we had a hard freeze overnight (mid-20s) we’re expecting a warm-up for which i’m grateful. spring is very late this year in texas.

  16. I really think the snowy sunset is your best pic from our recent brush with Winter ….. Glad to see the cats have been dealing with it as best as possible..
    I’m looking forward to (hopefully) some activity downtown this weekend … we’ll see !

  18. Your kitties look like they run the show! I love that sunrise photo – a perfect winter scene. I’m looking forward to my Grands visiting this weekend.

  19. Whops, forgot my webpage – have a good weekend.

  20. Wow temps in the 70’s that is nice. Good to be out and about on the beach (I’d love that). Here we are in the 60’s and enjoying that.
    So nice to see both Sundae and Gypsy, they are so cute. I love that Sundae has toy octopus.
    That was a gorgeous sun rise. Enjoy your breakfast date.

  21. We had a whopper of a snow yesterday – at least 9 inches or so – here at my daughter’s and my older daughter & her hubby are socked in with a foot of snow. Those temps you had in the 70’s….even I’m ready for a good dose of those!

  22. the sky’s colors are gorgeous! I’d at least frame this one. your kitties are cute. I shared mine earlier this week.

  23. Your plans sound more appetizing than mine. Taxes. Yuck!

  24. Gorgeous sunrise and I love breakfast dates too!

  25. Love that pic with #4!! Plus, I always love pics of cats. 🙂

  26. Your sunrise photo is so beautiful. When surrounded by ice for months, it’s even more amazing to see water!

  27. That is a gorgeous sunrise, I don’t mind seeing it twice. 🙂 Good for you getting out to do some shelling on that lovely day! I had a breakfast date with my sweetie this morning (since he made me get up EARLY to help out a neighbor).

  28. Love the photos dear Dianna!
    Sunrise photo is incredible as well, love the brilliant colors❤️❤️❤️
