Random Five Friday

Some randomness to close out May…this year is quickly slipping away…

1.) A few weeks ago, Motor Man and I took a day trip to the South Boston area of Virginia. I found this “gate” made of old tobacco wood at an antique shop and bought it,  not knowing what I’d actually do with it. I think we found a good spot. Thanks, Motor Man, for fixing it in place for me.

2.)  As a lover of bacon (and ham), this recent Bizzaro comic  made me chuckle.

3.) Yesterday’s sunrise.  I hadn’t been up but a few minutes, opened all the curtains, and that big orange ball caught my eye.

4.) Hoping for a pretty day tomorrow, so I can stop in at our local Farmers Market. There are two vendors that I particularly enjoy: one is a couple who sells beautiful cut flower bouquets. The other is operated by twin sisters, a bit older than me, who make and sell handmade jewelry.  My friend, Donna, and I affectionately refer to them as “the Baldwin sisters” (The Waltons tv show), only these sisters sell jewelry, rather than “the recipe”. These are three of the necklaces I’ve purchased from them.

5.) Last Sunday, the weather cooperated, and we were able to have our Memorial Service on the grounds of “the old brick church; such a sacred, special spot for so many of us who live in the area.

And may we all pause to remember the real reason for the holiday.
