Random Five Friday

It seems like a nice day for five random thoughts:

1.) The weather is finally beginning to feel like fall.  Although it will soon be a hassle to bundle up every time we step outside, it’s nice to wear a lightweight sweater right now.

2.) Some of summer’s flowers are still in bloom, including this giant zinnia. It’s MUCH taller than me (which isn’t saying much).

3.) My orchid cactus is brightening this little corner of its world our kitchen. It was a tiny cutting when I bought it from a nearby greenhouse/nursery a few years ago. It thrives on very little attention, which seems to be a good working arrangement for both of us.

4.) I apologize for boring those of my Facebook friends who also follow the blog with repeat photos. This one was taken on a recent trip to the Outer Banks.

5.) And, finally, a tip of the hat (her hat, by the way) to wish my dear friend, Donna, a very Happy Birthday tomorrow.  More about that in a post next week.

Have a great weekend!
