Random Friday

Since it's Friday and I haven't posted anything since last Friday, I think it's time for some Random Fun.

1. My mother celebrated another birthday, but she doesn't look older at all. My sister sent her a red fleece half zip and I sent her red tulips. We did not coordinate this together, so I call it serendipity.

2. If you are reading this blog because of its (purported) photographic subject matter, you need to catch The Secret Life of Walter Mitty while is it's still showing in the theatres. I now want to travel to Greenland, just because of this movie.

3. I signed up with the local marathon training group. I have not signed up for any race, just the training. We'll see how it goes before I commit to a race.
Morning run in Softly falling snow.
From last week's Saturday run - the snow started to fall as I finished up.

4. I read this article that was shared by a friend on Facebook - The Trouble with Bright Girls. It's worth a read but I won't go into my thoughts on it right now. They would be too deep for a Friday!

5. I learned planes are no longer requiring passengers to turn off their electronic devices during take off and landing. I'm looking forward to my next plane ride so I can take photos out the window using the big camera. No more sneaking my iPhone to take photos like this one:
Arrival in Paradise #plane #shadow #travel
Arrival into Nassau, Bahamas
I guess it's too late for me to go with my friends to the Bahamas in February. Dang, I could use a break from the cold and snow....

Your Mom is so lovely - I like the color red as she must,too! I admire you for taking the marathon training. That was on my bucket list, but I'll turn 70 in the spring and have toned down my mileage quite a bit. Love that snowy path shot - it looks cold!

Well the last photo might have been taken on the quiet, but that sure is a beautiful colour of blue that you captured there! xx

Happy Birthday to your mom - she is quite lovely in red (it does appear to be her color). I will probably wait to catch that movie on pay-per-view and I hate to rain on the electronic device finally getting to remain on during take-off and landing optimism - but on all of my flights through DC to California - I had to shut off everything on each leg. They do acknowledge the recent research - but "just to be sure" still have to do it. Good luck with the training and hopefully a marathon.

You mom is lovely -- her face is radiant. xo

Your dad captured such a nice photo of your mom... and she rocks the red!
