Random 5 Friday

It's Random 5 Friday, where you share 5 random facts about you, your day, your pets, your kids, whatever! 

1.This view. 'Nuff said.

2. I'm taking an Essentrics class. Some days it kicks my butt.

3. I participated in another tea cup/mug exchange. This time I chose to give and receive a mug. You can read about it here.

4. My husband and I took a drive down to the Great Dismal Swamp last Sunday afternoon. It isn't dismal at all! Such a gorgeous place to visit. We want to go back when we have plenty of bug repellent though. The black flies are massive in size!!!

5.  I'm seriously going to pray for the rain to hold off until Monday. The Air Show over Hampton Roads celebrating 100 years of Langley is tomorrow and I want to see those fabulous planes up close and personal. Yesterday, the Thunderbirds were practicing and they flew RIGHT OVER OUR CAR!!! They were so low, and it was so COOL, and I started crying because I am SO STINKIN' PROUD to be an AMERICAN and a USAF MOM!!! 
(I did NOT take this picture.)

Yep. I'm a little enthusiastic.  

It's a gorgeous day here and I'm off to get my butt kicked, then on to lunch with some friends. 

I hope each one of you has a blessed day!

  1. Hello, I have to look up what is an Essentrics class. I enjoyed my visit to the Great Dismal Swamp, it is an awesome place. Love your images. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

    1. Hey Eileen, I'm looking forward to going back and hiking the swamp, of course on designated paths! :-)
      Enjoy your week!

  2. Yeppers! No, "Dismal" for you. Tea Cups? How wonderful.

    Peace . . .

    Happy Day to YOU!!

  3. Fun teacup/mug exchange. Gorgeous view. Great Dismal Swamp sounds interesting. Hope you had fun at lunch! Happy Friday!

    1. The exchange is always fun! You're welcome to join in next time. Lunch was a blessing! I enjoyed a couple of hours of good food and precious fellowship. :-)

  4. Hi Anne! Well, I hope you had fun at your butt-kicking class! What a name, "Great Dismal Swamp". Yikes, it sounds horrid, doesn't it? I'm glad it's not what it sounds like.
    Happy mug! You've had some fun with blogging lately!
    It's been a fun weekend for me, two of my three sisters were/are in town, so lots of family time. I love that.
    Have a good afternoon :)

    1. Hey Ceil, Oh man, I was exhausted after the last class! But it's been good for me. More weight is slowly coming off and I am feeling more energized.
      Family time is great! So glad you've been able to see two of your sisters. Mine is coming to visit me in May and I can't wait!
      Have a blessed week ~

  5. Beautiful verse! I hope the air show went well; that would have been so neat to see!

    1. Thanks! The air show was AMAZING!!! I took so many photos and video, I've yet to have time to go through them to even make a blog post. But I will. I will. :)

  6. I really enjoyed your random 5 post, it seems very fun to do! I need to remember to do that on a Friday soon :) I'm glad your still enjoying your mug, love that picture next to the beach... also, love your beach picture too, the light and vibrancy of the colors - amazing! Will look forward to your air show post, it must be very exciting to have a son who can pilot one of those amazing machines! Hope you are having a lovely week :)


I am so delighted that you've taken time to come by and comment. Blessings for a joy-filled day!
