Random 5 Friday – Elvis, Frankie, and Fall

It’s Friday, and time for some randoms … ready?  Let’s do this!

1  )   Elvis my Elvis – 42 years ago TODAY the world lost a legend with the passing of Elvis Presley.   I was at horse camp when I heard the news and still remember the sorrow and disbelief felt.  There’s never been a time when I wasn’t a fan but if you asked me to pick my favorites from his music, I’d pick this:

2 )   Seasons – School hasn’t started yet but Halloween displays are going up.  Slow down already, wouldja?

3 )  Home shopping – I love a good deal — some “finds” have been duds, but others have been bang-on.  This is one of my top finds, ever – a luggage set by Samantha Brown (of HGTV fame).   Well made, well organized, well structured, well … everything.   I’ve never been complimented on luggage before owning this ( bought in burgundy). Really really well done.

4 )  Fall – We’re starting to see signs of Fall here ~  after a wet spring, it’s been dry of late so certain trees are turning color already.  Mornings are a smidge darker, nights a bit shorter. There’s been a nip in the air some mornings.  I know we’re in for more heat waves but, in the meantime, I’m leaning in…. because I LOVE FALL!

5 )  Golf – Hubbs and I were talking golf strategy last night, with me asking questions about certain clubs ~ He assumed I “didn’t like” a certain club which I hardly use until I explained I hadn’t yet been taught how to use it – for me, golf lessons have been great but a bit like being parceled out individual chapters to a story you’ve not yet read.  I want to jump ahead and know how the story ends!  (Patience!)    In the midst of our conversation I asked, “Did you ever think we’d spend an hour talking Golf?” and he laughingly responded “No, did you ever think you’d get me to talk this much?”  HA!

We are enjoying this new adventure together!  😀

How about you?   Are you an Elvis fan?  Seeing signs of Fall? Take up any new past-times lately?

Happy Friday!

Random 5 Friday .. the pm version

Here we are again, peeps.  Random 5 Friday is back and I give you the Friday night edition!

1) Normally on Friday nights, I’d be out doing something with Hubbs. Dinner. Meeting up with friends. Something.  OR we might be stay in and sit near the fire. Not tonight. After his disastrous travel schedule a few weeks back, he had back to back meetings and ended up sick with the flu this week. He did like I did .. he worked through – as in worked his job — and I think that when you do that, you end up with “it” longer.  So, tonight’s not date night at my house, it’s Alka-Seltzer-Plus and Puffs, Vicks-Vapo-Rub and extra blankies night.   Poor guy.

2) On the way home, in the driving sleet, I thought, “Hey, maybe I should take this opportunity to reorganize some closets and do some deep cleaning!”  And then good sense got the better of me and I stopped for a pizza, ginger ale for hubbs, a couple of Lime Beers for me, turned on the tunes and settled in to listen to the wind howl away the night.

3) #2 reminds me that I don’t really like a routine without him in it.   Probably should tell him that.  But not tonight. He’s under 2 blankets and moaning.  At this point, he needs space ….. without me in it, unless I’m bringing him ginger ale or soup.  Poor guy!

4)  A week from Monday, I fly off to our nation’s capital.  Like I mentioned last year in Milestones, not that long ago I wasn’t even a citizen of this great country.  I could pay taxes, but I couldn’t vote.  I felt like a bystander. But soon I’m off to the highest Governmental offices in the land to represent my company and our business.  Pretty. Sweet.  Pretty. Surreal.  Pretty… Awesome!

5) I saw this today and it not only made me laugh, now the song is stuck in my head:

Do you remember that song? What’s your Random 5, this chilly Friday night?
