Random 5 Friday


1.  This morning's sunrise over the lake made the early morning school carpool, so worth it!

2.  We got to 17 degrees yesterday, and the weather person called it a warm up.  Yup, it has been that kind of winter.

3.  We booked a short weekend trip with a ski and splash package in a couple of weeks.  A little reward for the kids since we ignored them for their patience during the great basement clean out of '14 the last few weeks.  Everyone is excited and we are looking forward to finally teaching the kids how to snow ski, hopefully it will be slightly warmer.

4.  I am looking for a new book.  The last few that I have read have been fairly entertaining, but not great.  Any suggestions??

5.  This week I was fortunate enough to be able to register for two upcoming events that I am so excited about.  The first is a slow money event discussing how to invest and gain investors in programs revolving around promoting healthy food choices an education in our community.  Secondly, is the TedX Manhattan--"changing the way we eat"  viewing party in our area.  I am enthusiastic that the insight gained from these events will help us in our efforts locally!

participating in Random 5 Friday, won't you play along?

Yep, the weather seems to be the topic this week... but it is January, so the warm weather I'm wishing for is likely not gonna happen. :)

Striking sunrise! I'm not by nature a morning person, much more of a night owl.. but sunrises always make me wish I was.
Your #3 made me chuckle. :)
One of the best books I've read in a VERY LONG time, one of the most beautifully & powerfully written books I've read was The Book Thief.
