Some randomness....

1.  Someone had a birthday recently...can you tell by this photo that she was happy with flowers her aunt sent her?


2.  Remember this post about the recumbent bicycle?  Well, we took the plunge about 3 weeks ago and got it.  We are pleased with it.  I guess.  Does riding it do any good if you have to take a nap afterwards???  No joke.  I get up and ride it before I do anything else.  And I am so worn out when I am done, I could go back to bed.  And I am not riding it very long at all....

3.  We were through the strip pit area the other day...there were a few hundred White-fronted geese and several swans.
4.  For some light reading material, specially if you have young kids, you might get a few chuckles from Junie B. Jones books...I had gotten Lorelei one...I don't remember the name of the first one.  But that led to Sarah getting her some, and I got her more.  And Sarah and I both enjoy them as much as Lorelei.
5.  And Nothing To Tell by Donna Gray is what I am reading just for me...the author interviewed women that grew up in Montana, women with no claim to fame.  This book is basically their words describing their life.  I am really enjoying it. 

I am linking to Tanya's Willy Nilly Friday Five...

What a cutie! My daughter loved Junie B Jones books - we read them together even when she was a teenager. The Donna Gray book looks good. I like reading true stories about women. Have you read Maude by Donna Mabrey, I think it is? It's a simple but riveting story.

A great birthday photo. What a happy smile and a big bunch of bright and colourful flowers for the birthday girl.

I have a picture book called "BIRDS" by Henkes - there is a double page that look like your photo - suggesting all the birds could fly out of a tree at once and it would be like they yelled "Surprise!"

There's that little sunshine again! Those big beautiful flowers just suit her. The bird pictures are amazing!

Sweet birthday photo of Lorelei! Oh, I so understand that need for a nap after the bicycle! :-)I generally take my naps in the afternoon when I can, though.

I wanted to tell you, it's so awesome that you are also familiar with Mrs. Mike! I've read it about six times and own three copies! :-) I have Tisha on my "To Read" list on Goodreads. Do you use the Goodreads site? I will also check out the other book you mentioned.

I love books that are enjoyable at any age. The birthday girl looks quite pleased, and that is one gorgeous bouquet! Lots of birds!

Well Happy belated Birthday to the Number one girl.
I like reading some children's books they can be just what one needs at the time. Good stories. I just read Gumshoe Girls stories by women that left home and went up north to the wilds of the Canadian coast and lived off the grid in the early 70s. My wish and I didn't do it.
Glad you got the bike---good exercise.
