Random Five Friday

Our barn star with a random tire.  

Going to work at 7:30am and getting home at 10:45pm is affecting my sanity.  How much softball and trap shooting can two kids participate in?  

Bees have now reappeared in my empty bee hive.  Is the Queen in there?  I will be checking this weekend.  

Eight days of teaching left in my school year.  

The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow.  My money is on Itsmyluckyday, 15-1, second in the Florida Derby.

It's the girl's turn today as the fillies run at the Kentucky Oaks.

Linking up with....

  3. Michelle, I remember those days! Spring used to pass in a daze of work and baseball when our youngest was playing. His older brothers, thank goodness, were into FFA which did not require us to be away nearly as much.

  14. I love the barn star and tire. And I can so relate to the crazy schedule. I know Diet Coke with Lime is not a substitute for sleep, but I keep testing the theory anyway. Rest up over the weekend if you can!

  19. I hope you've got a queen in there! We'll be opening our hive up soon to check for the queen. I hope we can identify her. My husband is a teacher and has been putting in some long hours lately. He is definitely counting down to summer break!

  21. That is a cool photo, Michelle. I am left wondering about where and why. Hang in there; in a few years you will miss softball and trap shooting.

  27. Maybe this southern gal can help me. Any idea where the stars on barns originated? They are all over the place up here too.

    1. Birdman, I really have no idea. They are very popular here. This star lights up and was made for us by a family friend, this past Christmas.

  29. Love your barn pic. My sister lives near the derby and is always amazed at the traffic jams this weekend creates.

  31. What a beautiful picture of the star at your barn. And those timings are surely tiring!!!
    Have a lovely day Michelle :)

  32. I hate long days like that. I have one coming up for a big education event. I thought of you and your hay bale gardens the other day. I was reading about Hugelkulter gardening. What an interesting concept.
