Random 5 Friday . . .

have you ever noticed
that sometimes you hit every stop light just right
and then others, you're at the intersection and it changes to yellow
and others it is red, and the next light, red and the next . . . red
no big deal, I just noticed today I hit every light perfectly

needles, yarn and pattern are in hand
 thoughts of teeny, tiny fingers and toes
 soft pink colors
this great granny is planning on having
busy knitting fingers in the next weeks

my body that is
impossible to walk outdoors near our home
so off to the mall I went on Wednesday
to click off some steps indoors

I wasn't swept off my feet
by episode one of Downton Abbey
but episode two put me back on track

my friend babs is
celebrating a birthday today
stop in and visit her
and maybe she will tell you how many candles on her cake
it always feels great to receive birthday greetings
~ ~ ~
I did mine, how about you.
Random 5 with Nancy

Random 5 Friday

I notice that with signals. I think we notice it only when we are in a hurry.

I have not seen episode 2 yet- maybe I will watch it tonight.

Musings from Kim K. said...

Your knitting project looks very sweet. A talent I never learned. Episode 2 was rather shocking. I think mall walking is a good idea with all our crusty icy walkways right now. We've been busy getting some exercise on the ice rink. Enjoy the weekend. It's finally Friday!

Sarah Huizenga said...

Love the yellow tulips. Yes the second episode was quite the shocker.

Nancy Claeys said...

I haven't watched any episodes of D.A. -- the better half hogs the remote. ;)

Knitting for a wee great grand?!

Maggid said...

my foster father used to tell me about traffic lights being timed "just right." When he was a young man, if you drove 32 miles an hour, he could travel the length of Denver, Colorado - without ever waiting for a red light.


TexWisGirl said...

great granny with soft, soft pink. :) sweet...

glad you could walk at the mall.

Michelle said...

Walking at the mall sounds like a great idea to me. No cold!

Anne Payne said...

Yes, I notice when I get all the green lights! It's a great feeling :) Congrats on your new baby girl coming along. I have a new granddaughter coming in May. Your tulips are lovely and uplifting.

I'm a new follower through Bloglovin'. Enjoying looking around here!

Tanya Breese said...

oh i love when i have perfect timing at stop lights but then when i do need to hit a red light, like to read something or whatever, i continually hit green...murphys law i guess!

Missy George said...

exciting that you will soon have a little one to spoil..I have to go "on demand" this weekend to see episode 2..What nights is Downton on?? I forget..

Missy George said...

Somehow, I lost your comment after I published it this AM..Link back to me?? Never knew how to do that, but thanks..I'm honored..

Pamela Gordon said...

I hit green lights 3 different times in town this week but they all ended with red ones. I love that timing though. I have yellow tulips in front of me too! Cheerful on this dark day. Have a great weekend.

Erin~Just*Grand said...

Nice post.... I'm with you on Downton Abbey. Hope it stays good. I really miss Google Reader... Bloglovin is not the same and I miss so many posts and it doesn't load correctly and whaaaaa! Stay warm! Xoxo

Dotti said...

Fun facts and beautiful tulips! I'm working on white ones right now. Aren't they great in winter? Sure helps keep winter blues away.

Olive said...

I missed episode two as we do not have TV nor internet at the old house. I must watch it now that I have returned to civilization. I ail visit Babs. Have a terrific weekend my friend, Olive

Ida said...

I hate it when I hit the lights all on "red" but love it when I hit them just right.
Great idea to walk "indoors" at the mall when it's nasty outside. We use to be able to do that but then they tore our mall down. Long story...
Such pretty yellow tulips. I will pop in an wish your friend a happy birthday.

Barb said...

Your yellow tulips are just right to bring color to a winter day! I like that delicate little knitting project you have -and congratulations on a new baby in the family.

Bonnie said...

Life is all about timing isn't it? Winter is a wonderful time to knit. Enjoy your weekend! Hugs Bonnie

Kerin said...

Love your random things.
I should stop and think about 5 random things myself.

Love that you are going to be making something for your great-grand. Very cool!! Very special too.

Downton Abbey.... don't get me started . Episode 2 of this season had me talking at the t.v!
"Tell Bates!" "Tell Bates!"

Guess we'll see what happens.

Have a great weekend, and enjoy Downton on Sunday.


Sugar Cookies to Peterbilts said...

Jealous that you got an indoor walk in! We walked a bit the other night, but it's so icy I won't walk when I am home alone. Have fun with your knitting projects!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Downton Abby. Yep, I felt exactly like you. First episode..blah..but right back on track like you with the second episode. Getting interesting. If Anna gets pregnant from that beast, I will be heartsick. She is such a really nice person. Bates would kill the man! NO doubt about it. Soft spoken but no pushover! Yep, someones going to die!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Good heavens! I sound just like those women that used to go on and on about soap opera's! I used to laugh at listen to me! :)

Pondside said...

What a pretty, soft colour yarn you've chosen!
I like your five random facts and am in complete agreement re Downton Abbey.

eileeninmd said...

Hello Lynne, I have noticed the traffic lights being in sync..But, I am not always lucky to catch them all green. Congrats on being a Great-Granny! Happy Birthday to Babs! Have a great weekend!

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Lynne, first, of course you are...

Haven't watched DA second ep falling behind, but hey, I needed to blog.


Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Oh, PS...

I left you a comment on my post, but in case you don't check back there, [I mean who does normally?] the answer is Pic Monkey.

I use a lot of their overlays...and the foggy days we have been having have helped.


Nancy said...

Knitting in winter must be so relaxing and rewarding, Lynne. Especially a baby project. Congratulations. Going to a mall to walk -- good for you! The yellow tulips are so cheery. Oh, I recall driving to work, back in the old days, and hitting every red light along the way. A memory I'd just as soon not have. ;) Hope you had a great weekend, my friend. xx
