RandomLand 1: Because… NUMBER5

Hey there Sweeties…

It’s Friday and I’ve decided to embrace some new RANDOM fun by hopping aboard Random 5 Friday over at A Rural Journal.


  • A. the picture above is so darned cute I simply HAD to play and…
  • B.  I’m working towards noticing and celebrating what one of my characters calls the Sacred Random when it shows up in my life and…
  • C. FIVES are also incredibly important to some characters I am playing with … and to me these days – Five elements, Five senses… five five five five five.  This is the year of FIVE.

The idea is to post 5 random facts about… pretty much anything…. and then to share the link over on the Rural Journal site.  Tis fun, n’est pas? Here goes…


1. Gigglefest confession

Jenna and Kenneth celebrate…. The Movie (NBC)

I cannot say “A Rural Journal” without bringing to mind Tina Fey and the hilarious episode of 30 Rock where Jenna is in a movie whose title no one can understand…. Can you name the movie?  anyone? anyone?

2. Look what I won!

Just found out this morning that I am the proud winner of a fabulous pendant featuring one of my all time sHeroines – the rootenest-tootenest sharp-shootenest gal of the west – Annie Oakley! Born Phoebe Ann Moses (or Mosey) in Darke County Ohio, it’s been said that Annie could shoot the head off a running quail when she was twelve years old. My kinda gal!

Much thanks to Tanya for the fabulous give-away and to Vicki over at 2 Bags Full for hosting the 2014 Grow Your Blog party which is how I met Vicki and entered to WIN.

3. Rising Early actually feels pretty good.

sunrise 2.11.14Lately I have been rising at 5am.

My body underwent a crazy shift a few years back from night-owl to strangely wakeful morning woman.

I’m still learning to embrace the change and enjoy the sunrise from THIS side.

It helps with the “getting things done” too.

4. Numbers

Found on a Discover Mag post: Primal Madness… Click the pic to go to the article

I apparently have a deep seated NEED to NUMBER things.  I number the Shake n Bakes, and now I number this post…. in the hopes, no doubt, that by NUMBERING them I will feel a wee push to… keep on doing it weekly.

Ah the games I play with mySelf.

5. Did you know…

FIVE is the holy number of Discordianism, as dictated by the Law of Fives.

Is this a “real” religion?  Dunno, man – but it sure tickles my RANDOMbone.

There you have it – our first official visit to RandomLand.  May there be many adventures to follow.

Have a great weekend ~p
