Random 5 Friday
1. Snow, and more snow. In case I haven’t shared,  here’s my take on winter- as an adult,  I’ve often wished that I could stay inside for the entire season! However, I do like photographing winter scenes!   What to do with that conundrum?

2. I love getting snail mail,  (letters, cards, not flyers and such  wanting my limited funds) 3. I very much want to see the movie “Saving Mr. Banks,”  but I dislike going by myself. 4. Although my birthday is coming soon,  I do NOT want a party.  (Heed this, sweet granddaughters, please.) 5. I’m almost finished reading Circle of Bones  by Christine Kling on my Kindle. 

If she has Riley, the main female character, die,  I’m going to be mighty unhappy.

Small Stones: Friends and Kitties

Temperature at 20 Almost balmy My kitties’ food supply low Head out to Walmart Cat food- check Need bananas- check Peanut butter jar nearly empty- check Oh, yes, almond milk- check No longer can drink coffee, So brighten my attitude toward change  with orange and spice tea- check In check-out line...  A friend in front of me, She notices me first We chat till she’s paid Now I’ve paid, On the way to the exit Another friend sighted Stop and chat Shopping task done.
In my daily in-box comes  a Minute Meditation from the Franciscan Media.   Here is today’s which I found quite apt  for my visit to Walmart: “Eye contact is more than a polite gesture -  it is a simple yet meaningful acknowledgement of Christ in the other.”
