Random Five Friday

It’s hard to believe that it’s time again for R5F.  Here are this week’s thoughts:

1.) Tuesday morning was  a little foggy out on the river….just enough to make for interesting photos.

2.) Tuesday evening, Motor Man and I were coming home from dinner and errands in Newport News.  We were on the James River Bridge at sunset, and I had, uncharacteristically, left my camera at home. I attempted a picture with my cell phone. When I uploaded it to my computer, I was amazed at just how bright the sun is in this picture.

3.) Seven years ago, six years ago and two years ago, we had weddings in our yard.  The first was in August, and the second two in September; in fact, THIS week in September.  Between the dry weather and the damage by the deer, our yard is in sad shape this year.  I’m relieved we aren’t hosting a major event.

4.) Each week, Motor Man and I take Motor Mum out to dinner at a local restaurant that’s just been open a few months.  It’s called Wharf Hill Brewery, and is in a building that dates to 1906 and was once home to a funeral parlor. The food is delicious (fried green tomatoes: yum!), and we love the atmosphere.

5.) Antiquing (and perhaps lunch?) tomorrow with a friend. My trip will take me through my hometown: always a treat.

Happy weekend!
