All Over the Map Random 5 Friday

Sweet Friday afternoon and time for Random 5 Friday, one of my favorite times of the week. This week we're really random and I hope you will find it really fun, too.

1) I was walking up the street to the library yesterday and came across these signs...

  The Michael J. Fox Show will be filming here and throughout the neighborhood on Sunday night. The filming starts at 10:00 P.M., and as enthusiastic as I am about filming, I think it's past my bedtime. 

2) After telling myself at least five times that I need to start carrying gloves with me I looked for my gloves. I have four pairs of ski mittens -- I wear ski mittens when it's snowing or really cold -- and six gloves. I don't have three pairs of gloves, but six gloves from assorted pairs. They are all black leather and in various states of wear. I think it may be time for a new pair of gloves. 

3) Since it's glove season I think it's also now dehydrator season. I've waited until it got cooler to use my dehydrator and I think I may inaugurate it next week with kale chips. I've never used one before and would appreciate any hints from experienced dehydrator users. 

4) I've had great apples this week. My favorite is the Macoun, crisp and just a little tart. It's also grown in New York State and that's a big plus for me. 

5) I've done a lot of reading this week. One book I finished I'm saving for a full review as part of a Blog Hop, but I loved it and it's deserving of its own post. Now I'm reading "Mission to Paris," by Alan Furst. His work comes highly recommended, but this is the first novel of his that I'm reading. I'm a fan of all things Paris and very interested in World War II history, so I anticipate I will enjoy this a lot. 

I'm definitely all over the map today, but I've so enjoyed spending the last little while with the fun folks at Random 5 Friday. Thanks for stopping by and take good care of yourself.
