Random 5 Friday

So, I am trying something new on the blog today. 
For some time now, I have been reading Random 5 Friday where some of my blogger friends link up. 
I've decided to give this a try, and see how I like it.
Rules are:  Share 5 random facts about you, your day, your pets, your kids, whatever!



Random 5 Friday

The new snow plow driver in our township is awesome, he is making winter a lot easier to handle.

I received several new cookbooks for Christmas, I am so excited to start reading them.

I wish our snow plow driver was our mail carrier. A PO Box may be in order if we want to get our mail.

Trying a new recipe for cabbage and ham soup tomorrow. It was recommended by a friend.

Our Christmas tree will be up for a few more days. My parents make a point of visiting every year to see our tree, and the way the roads have been, they haven't been here yet.

  5. So happy to meet you here at Random 5! What a wonderful dog you have. Our Christmas decor will start coming down bit by bit, beginning with the lesser used rooms and finally the tree is last. Happy New Years and I hope to see you again at Random 5!

  6. I am just a reader at Random 5 and really enjoy everyone's photos and thoughts. I cannot imagine living in a place where that much snow would shut everything down! If we get 2 or 3 inches here, everyone panics! ;)

  7. Welcome to Random 5 Friday! Love the dog shot! My dog loves the snow! Our tree stays up until the darn thing is practically bare, because nobody wants to deal with it! Taking it all down is no fun at all! Anyway, welcome and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Aloha

  11. Hello new R5F girl! Love the photo of your pup! I just ordered a British Good Housekeeping cookbook from the 1950s. Robert and I have one here in England and I wanted a copy to take to our other home in Vancouver. I love cookbooks too; have since I went to Cordon Bleu in my 20s. Looks like you had a white Christmas. Ours has been a mixed bag of everything but snow. :( Oh well. I shouldn't complain. One year there was so much snow that England ground down to a complete halt for several days...just before Christmas.
