Random 5 Friday





1. My husband and I celebrate 31 crazy years next week. That's a windchime we bought on our 20th anniversary, and it hangs on our front porch. I love the way it sounds and it always reminds me of our time together. The other day I posted this quote about my husband - “I love the ground under his feet, and the air over his head, and everything he touches and every word he says. I love all his looks, and all his actions and him entirely and all together.” 
― Emily Brontë

2. I have some serious vertigo happening and it is taking all I have in me to get this post made.

3. We've had so much rain, along with cooler temps, that things are starting to mold. Ew! So we turned the a/c back on today to pull out some of the moisture.

4. I have 12 books in my review stack. This vertigo better ease up so I can get back to reading!

5. Saturday marks 12 years my mom has been gone. I miss her terribly.


**Bonus trivia - 14 years ago today we moved into our home. It was 104* outside and the house had no a/c. Today it is going to be 84* and the a/c is ON! What does that say about me?! :-)

  3. Windchimes is such a neat way to remember an anniversary. My 20th is in 3 years - maybe we can do that!

    Happy 31st! :-)

    I had an attack of vertigo back in February that knocked me out for almost 3 weeks. Awful stuff. I hope you feel better soon. Seabands helped me a little - you can get them in CVS near the Dramamine.

    1. Hey Lisa, We have not regretted spending the money on the chimes! It was a little different way to remember but they are awesome :) Feeling a little woozy in the head but not near as dizzy so hoping it is on the way out. Have a fun weekend with your sweet boys :)

  4. I like your wind chime . . . and the wonderful things you said about your husband. I like hearing about happy lives and love.

    I hope your vertigo gets resolved . . . and soon. Try the SeaBands, I use them each time I ride in the car, air, boat. I also use one Bonine . . . it might help.

  5. Happy Anniversary! Vertigo is no fun. When I get vertigo is usually means my allergies are acting up and my ears are the first to go ... then the sinuses. I've always been a bit backwards! ;) I'll take your rain.

  6. Anne,
    What a memorable week!

    Happy Anniversary to you and the Hubby.

    I hope your vertigo eases up. That does not sound fun.

    We have enjoyed cooler than normal July temps too. It's raining this morning and the outlook is for more cool temps.

    Yesterday, I started reading Gone with the Wind.

    Keep the good memories of your Mom. I moved 8 hours away from home and miss my Mom like crazy. I love that we can keep in contact with texting.

  8. Congratulations! We celebrated 31 years in July. I celebrated by giving Hubs a handmade card that said Happy 32nd Anniversary. He obviously didn't marry me for my math skills.

  15. My husband & I will be married just 16 years this month.. My mom gave us a windchime for our 15th anniversary last summer. I love the engraving on yours!
    Hope that vertigo clears up for you, or is gone already!
    My book stack has been ridiculous this summer.. feels good to be knocking it down during the past few weeks.
