"R"andom Thoughts

I am late for Ms. Jenny and the "R" gang this week but I am here and spreading random thoughts. Here is my offering for Think Spring! We are dropping twenty degrees to start our Springtime weather in Colorado. If you have lived here your entire life like I have you would not even flinch. Snow in May!? Why not, we wait and wait and wait to plant. Then we get some fun filled with wonderful color all summer long even in the dreaded 100 plus temps! So now that Spring is officially here enjoy it everywhere you are!
Not very colorful but a favorite running quote. Billy Mills was the only American to ever win the 10,000 meter event in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics! In case you missed it, running is related to the R words and posts we are sharing this week.
Easter will be here before we know it! Although I was raised to celebrate the traditional reason of Christ's resurrection I like some color and fun too! This faux chocolate rabbit is calorie free!
I love Audrey Hepburn! She was a classic, a true celebrity and wonderful actress. They don't make 'em like her anymore and I was going to mention I am incorporating my  Beverly Pink's here today. I know you will see more than just this pink here!
I am stuck on running! The popular song "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen is used in an awesome and hot pink running quote!
Reading the Scriptures daily are very important to me. I like this verse in the pink heart.  It is a sweet crafty heart with words to live by.
A random thought about reading. Plus it is pink! I love reading and I read about 80 to 100 books a year. Recently "Fred the Floater" and I have became good friends. I have one of those annoying floaties in my left eye. Of course, my left eye is the weakest of my eyes and I hate not seeing as clearly as I once did. But age does funny things to you so you have to take care of those peppers and keep reading! I am not a big fan of someone reading to me because my whole life I have read and when I stumble across an unfamiliar word I stop and research it! Not such an easy task when someone reads the words to you.

Now please visit both Ms. Jenny and Beverly and share your R's and pinks today! Enjoy a restful weekend!

What a great post. I had my annual eye check up this week and thankfully, all's well. But I mentioned that I seem to need more light to read and the eye doctor just smiled at me. I am on the search for a new bedside lamp. I love to read before I fall asleep.I'm a complete Audrey Hepburn fan, too, and her movies are among my favorites.

Love this, Anne!
I'm the same way about being read to -- altho' I have to pause and thank my parents for taking time to read aloud when I was very young.
Audio books are a great tool, I suppose -- but I've always been a visual learner. Plus, I just like being able to pause mid-page, or even go back to absorb those lovely words.

Thinking of Ben's family this morning and holding you all in my prayers.

Have a lovely day, my friend!

You are a very busy lady. Do not know where you find the time to read. I enjoy it as well, but do not read that many in a year. Trust all else is well with you. Take care and always good to visit.

You share a lot of goodies in this post; the Audrey Hepburn quotes, the reading child quote and the Scripture about love.

I love, love, love the picture about reading!!! What else would you expect from a person that taught first grade and then Reading Intervention for almost 40 years?!

The snow and wind are here again today out on the plains. Brrr. Stay warm and safe.♥♫

I enjoyed that post! Do you really get snow in May? By then we'll be burning up!

Denise said...

Enjoyed this post.

I read a lot too. What would we do without books? I loved your faux chocolate bunny. The best kind considering he has no calories. lol. You have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Edna B.

I agree 1000% with the "child that reads" quote. We need to get them off the "mindless" videos and games.

Twenty degrees sounds a bit chilly Miss Anne!

Maybe a warm hug will help!

Sending one your way.

I've been really absent from blogging and just planned to visit ten for the day!

How fabulous your link was the 9th one I opened!

Miss you!

Hoping to see a lot more of you soon!

Hugs and A+
