Friday Five: Christmas Eve

1) If you had to build a Christmas tree with just items around your house, what would definitely be part of it? Books, of course. I’ve built one of these before, and posted about it earlier this month. But here’s another photo. 2) What’s your favorite holiday to decorate for? Halloween. The decorations are fun,Continue reading “Friday Five: Christmas Eve”

Friday Five: Over the Summer Hill

What sign marks the end of the summer for you? It used to be Labor Day, because my son always started back to school the next day. Now that he’s in college, he’ll start earlier, so I guess it’s the now the third week of August that marks the end of the season in myContinue reading “Friday Five: Over the Summer Hill”

Friday Five: Heights

Apparently the Friday Five this weeks is called Heights because of a film that’s out with that name. I haven’t seen it and have no idea what it’s about. As much as I miss seeing movies in their natural habitat, I have no plans to be in a theater anytime soon with crowds of unmaskedContinue reading “Friday Five: Heights”

Friday Five: A Year Later

1) What are you doing this spring that you weren’t doing 1 year ago?Making travel plans! A year ago, the pandemic lockdown was relatively new, it was hard even to get a covid test, let alone a vaccination, and it seemed that we would be stuck at home forever. Now, with the U.S. vaccination rateContinue reading “Friday Five: A Year Later”

I readContinue reading “Friday Five (One Day Late): Reading List”

Friday Five: Old School

I don’t officially participate in Friday Five, a blog prompt that provides a list each week of five questions on one theme. But every now and then I hear about the questions and find them interesting. This is one of those times! These questions were the prompt for a few weeks ago. The topic: ThingsContinue reading “Friday Five: Old School”

Friday Five: Dreams

Every Friday, a lot of bloggers post answers to five questions on a theme. I don’t usually participate, because I don’t pay enough attention to know what the questions are, but this week’s is interesting. The topic is Dreams. Why do you think we dream? Dreams are hallucinations that occur while we sleep. Our brainsContinue reading “Friday Five: Dreams”

Friday Five: Best Trips Ever

I was going to do the Friday Five (a weekly blog prompt) because I like the questions this week, which are all about travel. But I started writing and realized that my entry would be way too long, partly because one of the questions asks about my favorite trip ever, and I couldn’t narrow itContinue reading “Friday Five: Best Trips Ever”
