Friday's Random 5
Joining in with Nancy's Random 5 Friday:
Today is one of my "take-Mother-for-a-drive" days; I missed last week for some reason. We've covered hundreds of miles in my home county this year, and we've eaten many wonderful chicken taco salads at the little Mexican restaurant 20 miles from Mom's home. I'm sure today's drive will take us on familiar roads, but with Mother's lack of short term memory, she won't be bored. And we'll eat lunch at La Laguna again.
I've actually done some crafting this past week, and the stamping supplies piled on the kitchen table are a testament to that fact. My other blog has the evidence.
Yesterday I went to a cabinet shop and ordered a vanity for the very small "guest" bathroom. The present vanity is only 30 inches tall, and our 6'3" son is coming to spend a month in a few weeks. The bathroom has needed an upgrade for years. I chose a custom order (34 1/2 inches tall) because there were no white ready-mades on the showroom floor. Then I had to walk a block to choose the sink---this is the same business, but the sinks are in a different building than the cabinets! Now I need to shop for a tall toilet.
We had a humdinger of a thunder and lightning storm two nights ago; fortunately, we got 1/2 inch of rain at the same time.
Two serious accidents in our little town recently have been on the minds of residents, and the fund-raising begins to help with medical bills. One of the young men will most likely not walk again. Count your blessings.
