Random Five Friday

Another week, another Friday, five random thoughts.

1.)  Our weather for the past couple of weeks has been just about perfect.  Sunny with daytime temps in the low 80’s, crisp, cool-ish nights, low humidity and spectacular skies. I took this picture with my cell phone Tuesday evening during golden hour.


2.) I’m not the only one enjoying the nice weather: my company for Wednesday evening’s sunset.

3.) This is one of three “outback” kitties at our shop.  Anyone familiar with ears like that?  The other two kitties won’t get near me, but this one comes when I’m putting out food for them and allows me to get fairly close.

4.) I’m tempted to take a picture each time I see one of my little hummies these days. I know they’ll soon be on their way south for the winter. This one was visiting recently during morning’s golden hour.

5.) Five years ago this week, I registered my blog with WordPress. My first post, This House Has My Heart, was published on September 20, and has a whopping two whole comments.  Five years of blogging: that’s a lotta words and pictures. I’ve made many, many friends, some of whom I’ve been fortunate enough to meet in person. Although I  sometimes struggle for blog topics, I really can’t imagine NOT blogging.  Thanks to  all of you for stopping in to visit.

Happy  weekend!

  1. Congrats on year number 5! I am so glad our paths crossed and YES–one day we are going to meet in real life. You can count on it. My hummies are still hanging at the feeder as well and I love to watch them . I read that some actually do stay around in NC so I am going to experiment and see if any of mine are hardy enough to do that!

  2. Congratulations on five years, Dianna! That’s awesome! I celebrated three years this week. Oh, how I’ll miss the hummers when they migrate. We’ve warmed up the past few days, so the activity is still strong.

  3. So glad we ‘met’ and that i then learned of your inspiring blog.I love these images – looks like a very peaceful week. Also love that hummer feeder. Tell me where I can get one!

  4. CONGRATULATIONS! Your posts always bring a smile to my day. Interesting ears on the kitty – I’m curious too. I’ll be sad to see the hummies leave too. Beautiful pics.

  5. Five years is a long time……hummies, horses, flowers, sunsets and sunrises, and swans…..Mother Nature’s bounty in a blog – that’s you dear girl!


  6. Great post – Congrats on your 5 year anniversary – it’s always a joy to read your blogs:)

    I found this info on the cat -looks to be an American Curl – tame it and maybe you can sell it and retire!! ..lol 😉

    Congratulations my friend, you have done a terrific job over the past 5 years. I enjoy your blog very much. The cat is different but cute.

  15. American Curl in that kitty… They are hugely popular in So Cal where I am from and they originated. Congrats on 5 years, I’m so glad your dear June “introduced ” us.
