Random 5 Friday

1. I reuse photos to create more graphics, especially when I have one that I really like. I love this one of the Black-eyed Susan. They've shown up in quite a few photo ops this summer. 

2. I've discovered a love of Earl Grey Tea with a squirt of lime and small packet of Stevia.

3. We raised our children right. They were introduced to Star Wars by age 5. The original, mind you, on VHS tape.

4. I'm looking for a pretty green Betta fish to go with my pretty red one. 
Then I will have Thor & Loki :)

5. I dislike automatic virus renewal.

* I used nc 0031 texture on the photo twice and brushed it lightly.


  1. Nice Random 5! I love the graphics that you created. Very nice edit of the photo, and the verse and quote go so nicely. It was nice to be reminded of Anne of Green Gables--one of my favorites!

    I'm glad you raised your children right. You started them off very nicely at a young age. :-)

    I've never tried lime in tea. May have to give that a try.

    Have a nice weekend!

  2. het past wel heel mooi bij elkaar.

  3. Your black-eyed Susan is lovely and I can see why you use it often. I'm like that, too. I love tea, but for some reason Earl Grey and I don't hit it off. I may try it your way! Go Star Wars (the Original)!!!!! Wonderful 5. Have a great weekend.

  4. Water has become my drink of choice lately -- not really for health reasons, but it just tastes good right now.

    Lovely image, quote and edit Anne. A nice way to start my day. :)

  5. Love getting to know you a bit better, Anne!

  6. Beautiful photos, edits and quotes. Have a great weekend, Anne!

  7. Your graphic photos are beautiful! I love the soft quality to them. Lately I have been running into verses from Psalms everywhere; I feel it is a sign that I read them, since I never have.

    That tea sounds amazing - I never think to do anything creative with my beverages like that!

    Have a wonderful week!

  8. This is the second time I've read this verse and the other day I shared it with a friend :) Thank you for using Psalm 30:5b - it has been a great comfort and sweet promise to me. I love your photos and the blessed encouragement you offer, thank you Anne!

    Have a great weekend. Hugs!

  9. i love your graphic with the quote, very nice!

  10. The graphics are really nice. I wish I could do that!

  11. these are lovely graphics, and I do remember that particular Anne of Green Gables quote, perfect with your photo. I love E.G. tea black the best...and I am probably one of maybe 5 people on earth who has never seen Star Wars in any kind of media form, shame on me, maybe one day!

  12. Love the photos you've made. Really lovely. I also love Earl Gray tea. Especially now when I'm in England and it just seems so natural to drink it all the time. :)

  13. Your go-to flower photo is lovely. I think the tree trunk in the background set against the delicate flower really makes it. Nice texture edit, too! Would you believe that your verse at the beginning is exactly what I needed to read this hour (husband in ER -- again!). Thank you for sharing yourself and for the inspiration!

  14. I love Earl Grey tea! Must try it this way. :)

  15. Lovely images. Anne, try Lady Earl Grey with lemon, delicious. I love lime in ice tea instead of lemon. I've only seen the original Star Wars and the second one I think. I like the first one.

  16. This is beautiful Anne, and the scripture and quote fits perfectly with it. Thank you. ~ Abby

  17. I'm so behind on blogging since I was gone for the weekend to a grief writing workshop. Extensive flooding took place in our area while I was gone but thankfully our home is OK!!!

    Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments about my photos. I really appreciate the boost! I hope you're having a wonderful start to the week and possibly enjoying these cooler temps in July :)


I am so delighted that you've taken time to come by and comment. Blessings for a joy-filled day!
