Karla presents this random 5 at RevGals:
1. If a spaceship landed in your back yard, and three very cute little aliens knocked on your door and asked you to show them around Earth,where would you take them? (Remember, you have superpowers from last month's Second Friday Five, so if you need to use them for transportation, feel free to do so.) The beach (see below) and also the fun and quirky places in my town.
2. What is making you grumpy these days? Needing to go to the beach.
3. O.K., so now that you got the grumps out, what is one thing today that will be sheerly joyful for you? Jazzercise
4. I am pitifully, once again, trying to grow a garden. Last year I only harvested one cucumber. This year, I have zucchini, cucumbers and tiny tomato plants. Everything is abloom, but the jury is out whether there will be any yield. So, do YOU have a garden? What are you growing? If you don't, what is your favorite fresh summertime vegetable/fruit/flower? My zucchini bloomed like crazy (still is) but never set fruit. Not enough sun. Lesson learned, ok. My tomatoes gave about 5 good size fruit, delicious, but despite lots more flowers, not sure if we are going to have any more of those. My asparagus is in its first year so mostly making ferns...nothing harvestable there, nothing to see for 2 more years. The basil did well enough to make a big batch of Ina Garten/John Mayfield roasted tomato soup, but it seems tired now. I do have ONE banana pepper on that plant. The corn was attacked by ants. The cilantro gave up the ghost. But, Ken's plantings are doing great...elephant ears!!!
5. If the aforementioned aliens suddenly demanded all the contents of your closet, OR ELSE (as in clothing, shoes, etc.) but kindly said you could keep three items, what would they be? Ha. My grandfather's satin smoking jacket (deep red); a crazy quilt vest my grandmother made my mom; and the dress I wore to my wedding, with a bustier type quilted vest bought at the Renaissance Faire where we were married. I think it's time to clean out my closet, what?
