Random 5 Friday 02/21/14

Linking up with Nancy over at A Rural Journal for this week's installment of Random 5 Friday.

1.  The weather here this week has been divine!  Warm, sunny and decidedly unwinterly.  DH has been riding in to the garage for work much of this week, which has been great for him.  I am so happy he is riding again.

2.  We have had so much fun with the borrowed Catrike, that we will be getting our own later this weekend.  (see the previous post if you don't know what I 'm talking about.)

3.  We have a busy weekend planned, with lots of heavy work, all of it much needed, and designed to help out some friends of ours.  I was even kind to DH, and did NOT ask our friends to have the adorable and utterly adoptable puppy brought over to prod DH some more.  He knows I want another dog.  And I will grudgingly admit that our old dog Cody might not appreciate a new intruder.

4.  Monkey1 has caught the writing bug.  She has the desire to be a published author one day.  Until recently, her writing was clearly not ready for prime time...but suddenly it seems a switch was flipped in her brain, and interesting text began to pour out.  I'm not sure how or why, but I am pleased, especially for her.

5.  Wow....what a difference hormones can make, when they are the ones you have been missing!  Ladies, look into Smoky Mountain Naturals, for quality OTC easy-to-use creams to help regulate your body.  The difference they make it truly noticeable.


  1. Oh I am excited for Monkey1 there is nothing in my life that has not been made better than my desire to begin writing as a child, it clears your mind and is wonderful. I wish her luck I cannot wait to see her book someday.
    Happy biking looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. Oh a new puppy don't get me started:):( Hug B

  2. if you get a new dog i would love to live through you. i would love a dog ...but i wonder if i am up for it. never had a cat or dog. only fish & a guinea pig. ha. ha!! enjoy your day. ( :

    have you seen "Button" (one of my the lady friends) she commented above, i see. she got a new doggie this week ... go check it out. she is a real cutie.

  3. Oh yes Beth, I am a regular over at Button's place...

  4. A new puppy would be fun.

    How exciting that she's clicking with writing :-)

  5. Between your happiness about hubby and a puppy, no wonder your on cloud nine! Writing? Good for you!!!...:)JP

  6. A little puppy would be cute.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  7. I get the "new puppy" bug every now and then, but know it would not be the right thing for our household. Willpower! :)
