Fences and a Morning Prayer

I am linking to Tanya's Willy-Nilly Friday and to Theresa's Good Fences in this post.

On a recent trip to Williamsburg....
             I know, I can hear you now, 'what!! She's posting about Williamsburg AGAIN!!'...
but I do have some more pics to share. This one is the fence that surrounds the Bowden-Armistead  house. I do love iron fences and gates.  But,  then I love picket fences and rail fences. Well, you get the idea! I just love fences.


 
Here is some of the intricate work on the fence. I just love the flowers.



Now, for my Random Five Things for Friday.

1. How sweet is it to have a 3 1/2 year old great-grandson say 'I love you, too' as you get ready to leave him? Pretty doggone sweet. Just melted my heart.

2. I sometimes get up early but wouldn't you know it... the morning of the blood moon,  I was sound asleep. Missed the darn thing. But, that's okay. I was snoozing up a storm about the time that eclipse happened.

3. We started a book club here at The Commons. How exciting is that! Our first book to read will be 'The Pilot's Wife'. It will be interesting to sit in on the discussion next month. Have you read it? I have already but I am anxious to read it again. I remember that it was a really good book.

4. I'm busy getting everything ready to leave Saturday for Duck, N. C. (on the beach!!!!) for a week of scrapbooking with a bunch of gal pals. I am so excited.

5. I just wanted to share this prayer I found on the internet. I got a kick out of it 'cause it reminded me of me.

  10. I had to laugh about the morning prayer - yep, that would be me! I read "The Pilot's Wife" and it's the only book by Anita Shreve that I really like - the others not so much.
    The iron fence is so beautiful! I would love to have something like that around here; I'd probably take pictures of it all the time.

  11. Just visiting today for Good Fences, I'll be back tomorrow for WNF5 - That is a cool looking fence. Sort of reminds me of an accordian and I like the flowers too. Very fancy.

  17. That's a fence with a lot of detail, I'd hate to have to paint it.
    And the prayer is pretty much how i feel some mornings, lol.
    We stayed up until midnight to see the blood moon, it was almost fully eclipsed by then and quite red. We had pretty much the best view in the country down here in the south, it was quite cloudy everywhere else.

  20. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy....that trip to the beach!! Sounds like a perfect way to spend a week with friends and good times.

    Wishing we had a book club here. At least I don't know of any. I've not read the book you mentioned but I've heard good things about it.

    And I too love wrought iron fences. There is just something 'regal' about them.

  22. Yes, I have read the Pilot's Wife. Anita Shreve is a good writer and there are some surprises in the story.

  23. Again I loved your fence.
    Oh how sweet grandchildren are.
    Don't feel bad I slept through the Blood Moon too.
    The book club sounds fun. I have not read that book. I'm currently reading a book about an Amish couple and their courtship.
    That's a great prayer.
    Have fun at the beach, take lots of pictures.
