Random Five Friday

Ready for the holiday weekend? First we have to have Random Five Friday!

1.) Once before, I planted cypress vine (also called hummingbird vine) seeds, but didn’t have a lot of luck with them.  This year, however, has been different. I love the delicate foliage and the tiny red, pink and white blooms.

2.) Motor Man and I made a quick trip to the Outer Banks this week.  Once again, we picked a perfect weather day. My hubby is acquiring quite the eye for photos; he suggested that this would be a pretty shot.

3.) We saw 47 horses on this trip, including this one we named “Surfer Boy”.

4.) We also stopped (coming and going) to see Aggie and give her Granola Bar treats.

 5.) Sundae thinks it’s been awhile since I’ve shared a photo of her, so here she is, relaxing on the guest room bed. Yes, that wrinkle behind her is her tunnel, where she burrows while we’re gone.

Happy, safe Labor Day weekend, everyone.

Black Friday: Our Way

Many several years ago, I accidentally went shopping (for one item) on the day after Thanksgiving. (It wasn’t even called Black Friday then, as I recall.)  I stopped at Sears to buy a Fisher Price train to travel along the rail of Marshall’s crib.

I promised myself then that the day after Thanksgiving would never again be a shopping day for me.

Allow me to share how Motor Man and I spent our Friday morning last week.

Look! No crowds:

Continuing our stress-free day, on the way home, we stopped for a visit with sweet Aggie.

I saw this cartoon on Facebook; my apologies to any readers who may actually enjoy the frenzy of shopping on Black Friday.

The Weekend Included Horses

Our weekend was a busy one. After I met friends Saturday morning for shopping at the Farmers’ Market, followed by lunch, Motor Man and I headed to the Outer Banks.

Along the way, we stopped to visit Aggie, who was looking especially beautiful. I think she’d had her hair done.

The next morning, we were on the beach in time to catch the sunrise over the ocean.

We then drove up to Corolla and out on the beach. We only saw three horses; they were  grazing on one of the dunes in the early morning sun.

On our way home yesterday, Aggie was treated to another apple as we passed by her pasture.

The weather was picture perfect in our area for all the outdoor holiday activities….including horse sightings.
