Random 5 & SkyWatch Friday - Beach Houses

(click on photo to enlarge)

More beach houses at the Salt Ponds in Hampton. I'll take the yellow one :)



Randoms:

1) 9 days of school left, counting today. These last couple of weeks of school just drag.

2) Last Saturday, while we were in Hampton, Ashlyn called. She hit a deer with my little mini van. She was ok but called me in hysterics because she felt awful for the damage on the van. Her car was still in the shop getting its a/c fixed so I let her use mine while we were gone. She had me terrified till I could figure out that she was fine. My van ended up with $2200 in damage. I get to pick it back up today. Betsy should be happy with her new bumper/grill and headlight!

3) The boys have a baseball tournament tonight. Yay. Haven't had any baseball in a week. This has been a weird season as far as getting games in.

4) When we were headed home from Hampton last Sunday, Ashlyn was on her way to Myrtle Beach with her friend. Haven't seen her in a week. Much too long. I miss her! She'll be home on Sunday.

5) The last couple of days my hands have been itching. I don't know what I got into but they are driving me crazy.

Have a super weekend!

  4. That's a gorgeous blue sky and the houses are so pretty. Loved listening to the video also. I only ever remember Pete Seeger singing that song, and it was nice listening to Malvina Reynolds. Now I have it in my head as I am pottering around doing the laundry :) A real fun song.

  8. My mother used to say that if your palms etched it meant that you were going to get some money. I don't know about the whole hand ;-) Love Malvina!

  9. I'd take any of those beach houses. Well, for awhile. I have a feeling that in the coming years it would be best not to own anything near a beach. So glad your daughter was not injured. That's so scary. Don't know about your itchy hands. They probably just need more money.

  15. Such a vivid blue, especially contrasted with the bright yellow beach house!

    How far from Roanoke is the beach? My mother-in-law lived in Roanoke before she married. I've never been myself, but I hear it's beautiful.

  19. I hit a moose a few years back. Saw her eyes at the edge of the road, braked hard, and she just slid across my front bumper. Damage? Just a grill and hood covered with moose hair. Knocked her down. She troitted off into the night.

  20. I like the yellow one too. Sorry to hear about the accident, but the most important thing is nobody was hurt. Hope you are having a great weekend!

  21. Flip you for the yellow one? I haven't heard that song in years. Nice. I'm glad your daughter is okay. My daughter had car trouble on the Freeway when we still lived in Dallas. She called me from a pay phone. All I could hear when I answered was crying. Took 10 years off my life.

  22. Oh yes! The yellow one for me too! :-) The song is perfect to go with it. I remember this song but didn't know anything about it's writer/singer. That was interesting.

  23. Most of your viewers would probably be happy with any of those beach houses. Hit a deer? Hasn't happened to me, but I am sure it would shake a person up. The $2200 put a dent in the wallet, but wallet dents are OK if the kids are OK.
