Random 5...

...Friday

I'm very excited that Nancy from A Rural Journal is back and hosting the meme R5F again.

Here are my random 5 in no particular order.



 :I managed to capture the city center of old Pompeii with no people!

: Did you know there is such a thing as Post Vacation Blues? I thought it was all in my head but after about a week and half of not wanting to do anything creative I started googling and found my problem-I feel like the fog is lifting.

: My 2 year old grandson just got over a staph infection from a spider bite-that was scary.

: Only 6 more Fridays til summer vacation!

: The gas leak in our little city of Porter Ranch has been capped and I haven't had to use my inhaler...Hmmm-kind of scary to think what we've been breathing for months on end.


Happy (random) snapping!

  1. I'm not surprised to hear of post vacation blues! Especially when it looks like your vacation was wonderful! Hope all is well for your grandson--and your gas leak! Yikes!

    1. Thanks Brandi. It was like a 2nd honeymoon and there was no rest in-between vacation and back to work-My little guy is much better and yeah...that gas leak has been awful not only to us as residents...but it's an environmental disaster.

  2. Neat picture there of Pompeii without anyone around.
    I did not know that about Post Vacation Blues...but then again we rarely take a vacation so I guess I haven't had a chance to experience it.
    Oh I'm so glad your grandson is over the Staph Infection. Not a funny thing at all.
    Kids here get out June 10th, I'm anxiously waiting for that.
    Oh that is scary about the Gas leak.

  4. I always get post vacation blues and it sucks, because I should be excited to write about my travels, but I always need time to process.

  5. Wow! I cannot imagine how you were able to clear everyone out of Pompeii but good job. ;-)

    I'm so happy your little guy is better. That had to have been scary for all of you.

    And, yeah, post vacation blues are a real thing. I always said that's why people need a vacation after their vacation. It's to give you time to adjust to being back in the "real" world.

  8. Great shot...as usual. I always need a vacation, after vacation. Missed out on Random 5 this week. Too much going on! Did you check out the new postcard swap I sent you? I still love your wonderful monarch one from a few years ago. Aloha!

  9. I, too, am glad your sweet grandbaby is better. So young for a spider bite.

  10. Oh my, I am glad the little one is better, that is very scary. I'm not sure about post-vacation blues, but I can attest that it is hard to regain focus with any direction - creative or otherwise. Well done on a non-people photo.
