I’m joining in with Nancy of A Rural Journal for her Random 5 Friday meme, where, as she says, “you can share 5 random facts about you, your day, your pets, your kids, whatever!”
I’ve always liked jewelry, and through the years I’ve collected quite a bit of—surprise!—cat and other animal-themed jewelry.
Here are some photos of some my cat and paw jewelry. Just about every day, I wear a piece of jewelry showcasing my love of animals, cats in particular.
I also collect bookmarks. Yes, I am a bookworm, and I love all things book.
I keep the bookmarks stored in a basket on one of our bookcases. I enjoy using different ones, depending on the book I’m reading and my mood.
Do you collect anything?
I probably wouldn’t be any good at collecting something that I had to protect in the original box or behind a locked door. I like to use what I collect.
The company that owns the newspaper I work for held its annual editorial conference this week in Danville, a city about 45 minutes south of Altavista. Editors and reporters from about 15 papers gathered for a day of presentations and discussions.
It was fun to have the opportunity to talk with others in the same profession and exchange ideas.
Sam showed more improvement Thursday than she has all week. She walked around more and interacted with us like normal. Talk about happy—that’s what Larry and I were!
