Happy spring! Though we’re still looking for some wintry weather next week, it’s officially spring, and I’m looking forward to seeing new life and colors.
And Happy Friday! I’m joining Nancy of A Rural Journal for Random 5 Friday. To read other bloggers’ randoms, be sure to check out Nancy’s blog.

The Altavista High School boys basketball team won the Group 1A state championship!
I made the trip to Richmond last Saturday to cover the state final game between Altavista and Radford. My co-staff writer took photographs.
As I said in last week’s Random post, I’ve never covered a basketball game or written about basketball.
I had a great time at the game, and it was exciting for Altavista to win. If you’d like to read the game story I wrote, you can find it HERE.

Do you keep up with the NCAA college basketball tournament? I usually have a few teams that I pull for. This year, Virginia has done very well. They won the ACC regular season and the ACC tournament and are ranked number one in the East Division. So my first loyalty goes to Virginia. I also like Duke.
I didn’t fill out a bracket, though. I just don’t know enough about all the teams to make intelligent guesses about who is going to win.
Spring is here, and worst of winter is over. I should be full of energy, right? Only I’m not. I am sleeping way too much and have little energy or motivation to do things beyond what I am responsible for doing.
What gives? I don’t know. I’m going to talk with my doc next week during an appointment because I’m tired of this. Pun intended—I can still laugh.
The other day for lunch, I ate some turkey and rice soup at a local café. It was delicious. However, I fished out every carrot that was in it and placed it on my plate. I didn’t eat them.
I don’t like cooked carrots, and I decided I was old enough to admit that and to stop making myself eat them.
What good-for-you-food do you just not like?
And a strange random fact: Both Chase Bird and me need new brushes. Chase Bird needs a new soft brush, and I need a new vent brush to use when I dry my hair. It broke off in my hand recently. I can still use the brush part, but it’s a little hard to hold in my hand.
Chase Bird and I just can’t look our best without good grooming tools. J
