Last week Nancy (A Rural Journal) made the sad announcement that she was closing her blog up. It was a hard thing to hear and I know she will be missed in the blogging world. She gave so much joy with her wonderful photos and writings and hosted some awesome Memes. One of which was Random 5 Friday. Like others I've heard we are carrying on the tradition even though there is no "linky" thing for people to join in on the fun.

Here are my Random thoughts and photos for this week.
1.Today is hubby and my Wedding Anniversary. Hubby & I met for coffee at Starbucks this morning & later we'll go out for dinner. It's been a wonderful 22 years so far. Times have been hard and times have been good and through it all our love has remained steady and solid.
Sharing a couple more photos from the "Egg Tree" that I shared earlier here:
2. This week I've had some "klutzy" moments. While setting a ladder up by our shed I managed to knock one of Greta's hanging basket planters off and spilled the plant and dirt everywhere. The next day while trying to get Eric the cat off the back fence I hit the wheelbarrow and knocked it into the flower bed spilling the squirrels peanuts all over the ground. Needless to say cleaning up these messes was not fun.

3. I bought more flowers this week to plant. They are still waiting to be planted because it rained the day after we bought them. Perhaps next week I'll get them in the ground.
4. I've been thinking about becoming a "Vegetarian". Well not really but it seems it would be much cheaper since the cost of meat these days is outrageous. Even hamburger is over $3.00 a pound now and chicken isn't much cheaper.
5. Went shopping (in the rain) yesterday for Easter gifts & candy. Every year I say I'm not going to buy a big bunch of candy but in the end that's exactly what I do. See anything you like?
