Random 5 Friday

1.   Erik is home this week so he did a big project in the family room/office, which of course leads to thoughts of another big project, namely painting the room and deciding on new flooring.   We're not ready to go forward with it, but hopefully soon.

2.   We decided to get out and enjoy the day and get some exercise, so we drove to the coast yesterday. It's past the main tourist season so it's a wonderful time of year to enjoy the beauty and the fresh ocean air.   And take photos.   Of course.   Erik wants to go back again today.


3.    The Moonstone Grill in Cambria has big quilts hanging on a couple of their walls.   This one would be so cute in the bedroom of a beach house...if I had a beach house.   Anyone out there have a beach house?   You can have this quilt for $300.



4.    Technical troubleshooting is exhausting.   This week, Dish Network and AT&T.   All is well again.

5.    I haven't been fishing in many many years.   Growing up, we went fishing in Iowa and Minnesota. We caught a lot of bullheads, a type of catfish.   Those little fish, on the grill, were very tasty.   If you like fish, there's nothing better than a fresh catch.   Can I get an Amen?



It's Friday!   Have a good day and a great weekend.

Love the ocean, love the quilt (wish I had a beach house. Not only for the quilt but because I love the ocean), love eating fresh fresh but not doing the catching. LOL!
I am sooo jealous of all that water so near to you. Such an amazing place to live and spend time with Erik and your photography. XOX

the quilt definitely is cute. love the blues in that shore photo.
Well when you get around to working on the room I think the first photo of the waves crashing on the rocks should be enlarged, framed and hung up to enjoy every day. Your photos make me miss living 20 minutes from the ocean.

I grew up surrounded by lakes and fisherman, and you are right there is nothing better than a fish from water to grill-that quilt is pretty amazing I like its happy colours.

Amen . . . from a gal who grew up in Iowa and loved fishing at the cabin in Minnesota . . . fresh caught, fried on top of the gas stove relic . . . OMG . . .
