Random Five Friday

It's Good Friday and temps are supposed to be in the 50's!  It's been a good week too.  I am joining Nancy at A Rural Journal  for Random Five Friday.

1.  The Ingalls family, Pa, Ma, Mary, and Laura  came last Saturday and helped clean out mom's apartment.  Here's a photo of them after we were done. ;0)


2.  I am opening a spot at Ade's Attic, here in town, to sell mom's furniture and lots of stuff I have in my basement and garage.  Probably creating more work for myself, but it will be fun.  I've been wanting to do that for a long time.

3.  Temps have been in the 40s and 50's the last few days and the snow is melting.  It's finally beginning to feel like spring!

4.  I've had my Bi-Pap for 3 weeks now and am feeling more rested and more ambitious.

5.  You can teach an old dog new tricks...it just takes longer.  I've figured out the newer version of Picasa.  Well at least how to get my photos uploaded!

To see other randomnous stop  over at A Rual Journal

Wishing you all a Good Friday and a Happy Easter.

Thanks for stopping!

Barb

Thank you Barb for coming by and always leaving such a nice comment. I love your photo here ... it's so cute. What an awesome job it is when you have to go back clean out our parents homes but it sounds like you've really got everything sorted out...it's a real emotional chore at least for me it was. Hope you have a Happy Easter.

Gotta love those Ingalls. LOL It is nice to learn more about blogging friends.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Mary is looking a little suspicious to me... I'm really happy that you're feeling better - and that you figured out Picasa. Isn't it frustrating when these things are updated and you have to figure it all out again? Have a very happy Easter!

Maggid said...

I was asked tonight if I wanted to update it, and when I said yes, nothing happened. Glad you got it figured out!

Carole M. said...

good luck with your market. You'll be glad when it's done Barb and it's all behind you ....

Marie said...

I'm so glad the Bi-Pap machine is working for you! Loved the cute picture of Ma, Pa & the kids! :-)

Nancy Claeys said...

Great idea about selling some of your treasures... maybe pick up a new lens or two after you are done? :)

Michelle said...

Happy Easter! LOVE that photo!

Pondside said...

The booth is a great idea - best of luck with it.
I used Picassa this morning and saw that Picnik had disappeared and the newer editing thingy didn't work. I'll have to give it another try.

Karen Frost said...

Rose said...

Really enjoyed these...I need to think and participate in it some time. But do well to remember Friday's fences and Barn Charm.

Vee said...

Hope that you'll keep us informed about the booth you're doing to sell some things. I've often thought of doing that as well since my garage is filled to the rafters with my grandmother's and my mother's things. Always good to have lots of help with such tasks!
