Random Five Friday


A random farm sign on a random piece of farm equipment for this Random Five Friday. 

Glad that the Little League World Series finally came to a close.  My daughter watched and worried over each game. 

Mildred sent me a jar of Fig Preserves, holy cow were they good.  I had never experienced them before and now they will be a staple in my kitchen.    Then Pat kindly sent me her copy of Time Magazine, with an article about the declining bee population, just because she thought I might want to read it.  I am a fortunate blogger.  

Who thought a scheduling a football game on Labor Day was a good idea?  

If you are looking to buy some real estate, I am suggesting this piece of property.  I could totally live there.

Linking up with Nancy today!

Be well, my friends!

  8. My grandmother used to make fig preserves and my granddaddy loved them so much he didn't want her to give any away but she always slipped a few jars to my daddy..I don't like football on Labor Day but I do enjoy seeing my 8 year old grandson play.....

  9. I don't think people realize how good figs really are when prepared properly.

  11. I live about 20 minutes from the stadium where they play the Little League World Series. Although the series is an exciting time around here each year, due to the nearly impassable traffic that week we are all somewhat relieved when it is over and the fans all go home.

  15. I don't know - that farm seems a little tough to take ;-)
    Fig preserves - I really need to try them! Have a great weekend!

  16. Oh my goodness, I could live there, too. Why don't we all pitch in?!! Four homes and room for campers...It would only take $1,000 from 20,000 of us to make the purchase. We could run it like a time-share. (Snort, hope you know I'm kidding!!).

    Blogging friends are wonderful friends!! I agree!! Have a great weekend!

  18. I like that farm sign! And fig preserves sound so good!

  19. Fig preserves sound delicious. And the sign looks familiar since I grew up in Iowa and remember that name. If we'd all saved the old signs from our hometowns, we could probably sell them and retire on a beautiful farm.

  20. Oh, I'm a big fan of fig preserves. I used to make them but now I get them from the store.

  21. I could totally live in that "little" log cabin! Because of the state fair, I tried pickled asparagus and pickled garlic for the first times. Going to have to toss in the fig preserves now too. Cool!

  22. Great sign..... the "Pickers" guy would pay big prices for a sign like that.
    Fig preserves....a staple at this house.. Love em! Hope your family enjoys a
    super delightful Holiday weekend..

  23. I'll split the property with you?????

  24. A Connecticut team made it to the finals of the US part of the LL World Series, so there was a lot of coverage around here, too. That house and property are beautiful, but if I were spending $20 million, it would not be first on my list.

  25. Hmmm ... checked out that property. Unfortunately with the kiddos out of the house we've been looking at downsizing, not upsizing ! On the other hand, 700 acres does sound appealing. Let me check my pockets ... $19,999,980 to go !

    Have fun at the football game.

    [liked your fall/autumn shot !]

  29. No figs for me and I'm sorry (but not too much) for the bees. By the way I am quite ashamed to say that I am a (reviled here!) fan of Tim McGraw, but I guess his estate is a bit too much for me!

  30. Mmmm the figs sound yummy. - That property is gorgeous but I long for a home all on one level (I hate climbing stairs). Enjoy the football game. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  31. I am intrigued at the idea of fig preserves. Going to look into that one. That property left me speechless!

  32. Just checked out that house. I could live there too. :)

  33. I have a backyard fig tree and fig preserves is the way to go!

    Happy Labor Day weekend to you.
