NONNIE'S PHOTO A DAY: My Random 5 Friday and Willy Nilly Friday 5

Two things happened in Blog-land to make my spirits brighter- First, Nancy Claeys returned and brought back her Random 5 Friday. Second, Tanya Breese created Willy Nilly Friday 5.
So here I go with my Random & Willy Nilly 5!  (I’m using just 5 to share with the two blogs.)

1. Here are both Jax and Ting Ting  trying to get inside the grocery bag.

2. The word 'JOY' is my word for this year,  meaning that I am working to build up enough joy    to support me during troubling times.

3. Here is my “sunshine”- great-granddaughter Myah. After a dental appointment,  her momma told her that she was taking her back to school  because she had lots of errands to run.   She asked if she could go to Mimi's.   Color me ecstatic- for I'm Mimi!

4. One of the big bubbles lasted long enough  for me to get this shot. Can you tell that I love bubbles too?

5. I call this kind of shot a "two-fer".   I captured both a shadow and a reflection.
If you like random shots or Willy Nilly shots, visit Nancy&…

If you are like me when you hear the word 'gnome',  the image above is what comes into your mind. But when I went to Phronistery, I learned a new meaning. Chinese gnome or proverb:  A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. 
On another site, I came across this quote that I found interesting- “I realized that If I had to choose, I would rather have birds than planes.” ~Charles Lindbergh (interview shortly before his death- 1974)

joining other for the fun at ABC Wednesday created by Mrs. Nesbitt and hosted this week by Roger

Hoosier Quote: “Robins are the most indulgent parents of all birds.   I’ve seen a mother robin lead a youngster right up to a worm  and point it out, but in spite of all she can do, she finally had to pick it up for the youngster and hand it to him.  Young robins will not work till they just have to.” ~Frank McKinney Hubbard~

NONNIE'S CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: My Impression of "Svetlana's Expectation

The sky colors In the most bright blue A new day rises
A new day rises Above the Venice channels Fading carnival sounds
Fading carnival sounds Even the sun and clouds Are crying ~Kristjaan Panneman~
