Random 5 Friday 01/24/14

Wow, is it Friday already?  Well, at least it's payday Friday!  Here we go, linking up with Nancy at A Rural Journal for another round of fun on R5F.

1.  With last week's patio project, I have sort of gotten off track on my days of the week.  That usually happens when DH takes a day off work, which he did last Friday.  Hopefully by Monday, I will be back on track again.

2.  We are having a bit of a cold snap this week.  Woke up this morning to 16* DFW!  Yikes, that's chilly.  I was getting used to our 50's and 60's last week.  At least they are calling for a warmer weekend.

3.  Tomorrow is our local Pinewood Derby.  My Webelo and his Sibs (aka the Monkeys) are all entered this year.  We didn't have time this year to really spiff up the cars, since they only got finished yesterday just in time for final check-in!  Hopefully they will all have fun tomorrow.

4.  I REALLY need to get active again.  So does DH.  We look at each other, and say, "If it were a bit warmer..." and settle back down, indoors.  Not good.  Since it is supposed to warm up tomorrow I am hoping he will go ride, while I take the kids to the Pinewood Derby.

5.  I am finally used to carrying a small fixed blade knife on my hip daily.  It's just so much handier than a folder at times, and faster too.  Nary a soul has noticed, or said anything if they did notice. 

I hope y'all have a great weekend.  I don't know what all we will be doing other than the Derby, but I hope to have some good posts upcoming.


  1. good luck at the derby. stay warm!

  2. The derby sounds fun! My husband and I have been talking about our need to get more active, too. We are feeling the effects of NOT exercising.

  3. It's been a very long time, but I do remember our Pinewood Derby very well. Hope your weather improves!

  4. Hi, thanks for visiting and commenting!
    Cold here in Virginia too - 16 this morning!
    Hubby and I visited DFW twice - to go to the nearby Nascar track.
    Good luck to your little ones in the Derby!

  5. If I ever carried a knife, I probably would fall on it!...:)JP

  6. Yes, the Monkeys are all excited for the Derby tomorrow. They'll have fun, even if they don't win.

    AQC--that's why the knife has a secure sheath on it. You can't stab yourself by accident that way. ;)

  7. i, 2 need to get to move & a grooving ... ready for spring weather 2 get started. ( :

  8. I have a folder knife in my pocket now...used to carry one at work for about 20 years. I can see why you would want the other, though.

  9. Ah…Pinewood Derby brings back good memories.
