Random Five Friday

Today’s R5F won’t be entirely snow-related, but since we’re still dealing with the 6-8 inches that fell Monday evening, it seems to be dominating most of my thoughts.  The snow hasn’t gone anywhere, schools are still closed, it’s three (3) degrees right now with a wind chill of minus-zero (-0), and I haven’t driven in four (4) days.  Who’s ready for spring?

1.) Speaking of spring, this isn’t the best quality photo (it was taken through a window), but we had a huge flock of FAT robins in our yard yesterday morning. Do they know something we don’t?

2.) I shared this on my Facebook page earlier this week, but I thought the rest of you might also enjoy a chuckle. We soften our ice cream in the microwave for a few seconds to make scooping it easier. Sunday evening, after dishing up our nightly treat, I mistakenly/absentmindedly put the container (almost an entire half gallon, by the way) back in the microwave, rather than the freezer.  I discovered it the next morning. Note all that delicious cream nearly filling the glass tray…. sigh. And thanks to  Motor Man for helping clean up THAT.

3.) Our front yard yesterday during morning’s golden hour.

“Just remember, in the winter,
far beneath the bitter snow, lies the seed,
that with the sun’s love, in the spring, becomes the rose.”

4.) It’s waiting for spring, too, and some pretty plants in that “bucket basket”.

5.) And, in closing, yesterday’s sunset over our icy river.

 Does your randomness this week include snow? Or melted ice cream?
