2013.08.30 Five random facts about me

Linking up with A Rural Journal for Random Five Friday (five facts about me) ...

I LOVE coffee.

I love having polished nails.

I should NEVER attempt to polish my nails in the morning after two mugs of coffee.

My husband, Vince, and I went camping last weekend for the first time this year.
Seems like something always came up to keep us home.
Glad it finally happened; we had a great time.
We especially loved our best-ever iced cappuccinos (made with coffee ice cubes, too). 
Link here:  The Smelly Gourmet in Metamora, Indiana.

While on our camping trip, Vince found a great used bookstore in Rising Sun, Indiana.
You can check it out on FaceBook by searching for "Paradox City Books and Games"
(use the full name when searching).
There is a photo of Vince and me on their FB page with the books
we bought last Friday (August 23).

the camera, lighting, and ... photoshop.

Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.
~ Confucius

Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best
by filling your minds and meditating on things
true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious –
the best, not the worst;
the beautiful, not the ugly;
things to praise, not things to curse.
~ Philippians 4:8
