away for the weekend: complete randomness

complete randomness

Happy Friday!
It's time to join Nancy for a little randomness.


1) I was going to post this photo for 52 photos project "light and dark" 
but then, like usual, I was running late -
 and when I saw all the awesome photos of full moons, city lights, shadows and sun...
 - well, there's a teensy possibility that not everyone appreciates my sense of humor.
But hey, light and dark cows - what's not to love - right?

2) I've come to realize that I'm pretty terrible with most social medias -
yeah, whatever...

3) I think I'm going to try to make soap. Since I'm a bit of a skin care fanatic - it amazes me that I haven't thought of this before.

4) I finally got some business cards printed - it only took me about 5 months.
Yeah - I tend to over-think things...

5) I'm listening to an audio book by an author that Chicago-daughter describes as a "guilty pleasure" 
- she was an English lit major, so you can translate that to mean "major fluff"
Yep, it's pretty terrible - and yet - I can't wait to listen for what happens next...

So that's all for me - have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I would choose the cow photo and call it White Milk and Chocolate Milk. I read a "major fluff" book or two every summer. It's also called a beach book. I'm still thinking about printing business cards - working the design out in my head first.

  4. I love your light and dark! Very clever....and what do you mean your terrible at social media? Isn't this classified as a social media? Because if it is, you're in the class with Tony The Tiger....you're grrrrrrreat! And I am very sincere when I say that!

  6. I love the cow photo! The contrast between the dark and the light cows is striking. I enjoy your sense of humor. :-)

    I think we all need to read some major fluff from time to time--we all need a break!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Karen!

    Are you by any chance listening to the sequel to 'The Devil Wears Prada?'. :D

  19. White and black cows make perfect sense! I have this thing about soap. I always want to buy the handmade kinds in little gift stores. They smell so luscious. But I don't use them. I just like them. So, how do you make soap? Let us know!

  23. Love your randomness and those Jersey Cows are my favorite kind. Who has time for everything, right? Seems I am always running late. Soap sounds like a great hobby. I have made the simple kind, melt and pour - kind of fun to do. But I've not made any from scratch. Hope you share. Enjoy your weekend! Hugs xo

  29. I think your take on light and dark is perfect and cows are always a win-win in my book. I buy homemade soap from a neighbor friend- love it and won't buy store brand at all.

    Love the cow picture; you can't improve on nature and I am pretty much in the same boat as you with social media....Not enough hours in the day to do everything...

    I hope your week is off to a great start....
