Random 5 Friday. Ready? Set — Go!
1 ) This picture, taken at night in my home province of Saskatchewan, Canada, brings me peace. I cannot look at those stars and not believe.
2 ) There was risk of a rat sighting today. While I am thankful for the heads-up, my skin prickled at the mention and, thankfully, I dodged the interaction. 🙂 See once you’ve lived/worked/endured rat behavior – years can pass and your tail will still twitch at the memories a bad experience left on your soul.
3 ) Yesterday was National Book Day (should be a holiday, I’m just saying…. ). Saw this and just had to share:
4 ) Autumn is sneaking in. Know how I know? Mornings are just slightly darker. On weekdays I am always up by 6:00 or sooner — now, it’s like August arrived and the sun decided to sleep in. Seriously, there’s been a turn and I feel it most in the mornings. Coffee up!
5 ) The August Primary took place earlier this week. Whenever I get to vote, I think of Mom & Dad … they were both so passionate about voting and never missed an opportunity to take part. One time, because of bad weather & greasy roads, their only way out was to drive the tractor a mile & a half to the highway where they were met by Dad’s brother & sister-in-law – all four rode together into town to vote. Open-air tractor or not, Mom grabbed her red patent leather purse and hopped on. I can just see it, the two of them heading off up the hill. Man, I miss them. ❤
Did you celebrate National Book Day, too?
Ran into any rats lately?
Seeing signs of Autumn where you are?
