Random Five Friday

Closing out the week with five random thoughts:

1.)  You’re never too old to daydream. Nearly three years ago, friends of ours introduced us to friends of theirs who own a Gypsy horse farm. After we visited, I began following them on Facebook. Yesterday, they posted that they’re offering this 3-year old colt, named Bolt, for sale.  Alas, it’s only a daydream: I’m too old, have nowhere to keep him, no time to take care of him…. but isn’t he one of God’s most beautiful creatures?

And, he has blue eyes. Sigh…….a girl can dream…..

2.) The weather recently has been unbelievably nice. And the sunsets beyond gorgeous. This one was March 9:

And this was Wednesday evening’s.

3.) Next week, I’ll share a post about our most recent day trip. It involved an early morning; we were about an hour from home when we caught the sunrise.

4.) I’m still adjusting to the time change, waking (for some reason) every morning between 3 and 4 am.  Thankfully, most mornings, I do catch another couple of hours of sleep.  I remember when I was a child, and Daylight Savings Time began, my mom and grandmother would often say: “Well, it’s only {for example} five o’clock by the sun.”  Now, when I compare the actual time to what time it is by the sun, I think of them and smile.

5.)  Motor Man is always sharing funny stories from his childhood with me.  This past week, he shared one I hadn’t heard.  When he was a young boy, he lived on a fairly busy street.  He and his buddies partners-in-crime would occasionally crouch down between parked cars and when a car would pass by, they would make the sound of a police siren.  Well, of course, I had to get him to re-enact for me.

Your randoms today?
