Random Five Friday

Happy Friday!  Here are five randoms for the week:

1.) This has been a totally changeable weather week for our area.  A couple of days ago,  we had temps approaching the 70-degree mark, giving us all a good case of spring fever.  Wednesday evening, a cold front blew in (and I do mean blew), dropped the temps and brought pre-dawn thunderstorms yesterday morning. By late afternoon, the skies were clearing, but it was still cold and very windy.

2.) We’ve been keeping an eye on the winter storm in the northeast, especially in the Vermont area where the Friesian farm is that we visited recently. Have you ever visited a place, then been almost homesick for it after you leave? I keep Townshend (VT) as one of the cities in the weather app on my phone, just so I can see how the weather is there at any given time.  Thinking about those beautiful black horses out having fun in all that fresh snow…

3. I’ve heard of a Christmas cactus, Thanksgiving cactus and holiday cactus (cacti). But,evidently mine thinks it’s a Valentine cactus.

4.) What a busy evening it will be tonight….the Full Snow Moon, a lunar eclipse, plus the chance to see a comet in the pre-sunrise hours tomorrow morning.  One day, I will learn about night-time photography, but it probably won’t be today.

5.) Tomorrow…. antiquing and lunch with a friend (possibly friendS).

How about you? Care to share your weekend plans?
