Friday 5

A change of pace for me today.  I thought I would do the Finished Object Friday Meme, though I don't ever week, can't get large items finished often enough for that.  When I came across this fun,  meme for Friday.  Getting in late as the day's half gone...but getting in.
  1. Had an enjoyable time today meeting 2 Whetstone High School Seniors as they accompanied me to Homeless Families Shelter.  They are doing a service project with global implications.  They are to write about the problem, present how or why it happened and what might be done to make it better.  One taught the other to knit and they're both slowing working at making a scarf to donate to my charity, Bridge and Beyond.  I'm always impressed when young people want to do for others.  Good luck with your projections Anna and Emily, it was pleasure to have you with me today and answer your questions.
  2. The sun is out and though it started well below freezing at 25% degrees this morning, I was able to take my outer coat off and open the car window a bit for some fresh air...sooooo nice, come on Spring catch up with the calendar, please.
  3. Thank you NOT to our neighbors that seem to think it's ok to let their dogs out before daylight to bark and bark.  Not everyone gets up as early as you.
  4. I enjoy Vodka in my Martinis, and hubby prefers Gin.  
  5. I don't drink decaf...if it's not real coffee, what's the point.  I need it to wake up


  1. Hats off to the 2 young students who went along to the shelter and are knitting.
    I just finished a cup of regular coffee - it was delicious!
    Have a good weekend.

  2. It is so wonderful to hear stories of people trying to make a difference. I'm glad to hear it is beginning to warm up where you are, hopefully spring will be here soon. I don't blame you for not being able to have a project ready every week, I certainly don't and you always make huge items too!

  3. i'm not a bartender so i don't know but don't must martinis have vodka not gin? i wonder??! ha. ha!!

    i totally agree with you on the barking dog. we have similar neighbors. ( :

  4. Thanks so much Maple, Pumpkin and Beth for your visits and comments. They are appreciated. I think Gin used to be more preferred in a Martini and Vodka with all the new flavors has probably taken over. Men, though usually prefer Gin...or at least from what I've seen.

  5. Hey Sandy! Yup why drink coffee withOUT caffeine! I found a nice vodka -Ketel One it's Dutch and you can get it in the US but really hard to find here. And if you lived in Switzerland, you could call the police and they will send a bill to your neighbors for their dogs making noise at an early hour. No joke!

  6. Barking dogs are not a problem for us as our nearest neighbor is over 1/2 mile away. Love living in the country!

    Thank you for sharing at R5F this week dear. xo

  7. So true. If the only choice is decaf, I'd rather just stay groggy and grumpy as I yell at the barking dog next door. Maybe it would enjoy a vodka martini.

    Su-sieee! Mac

  8. Thanks for visiting today. I see your Flat Stanley and it reminded me of a visit I had by Flat Stacy when I worked at the the donkey rescue here. The donkeys went wild over her, I hope I remember this, I really want to post about it once the A to Z Challenge is over. I just found the pictures and they are sooo funny.

  9. Thanks for visiting! I understand on the cold weather; it's supposed to snow again today....ugh.

  10. Sounds like a great charity! Definitely one worth checking out.
