(Sort of) Random 5 Friday

I'm calling this Random 5 Friday (on Saturday) despite the fact that I can't get a link to A Rural Journal. I'm going to do my usual weekend fun thing, and hope I can figure out how to link it later. And on that note...

1) Does your computer act up, too? I guess I take my technological marvels for granted, but when something isn't as it should I am frustrated.

2) I am so excited. Vermeer's "The Girl with a Pearl Earring" is coming to the Frick Museum, which is just across Central Park. The exhibition starts this week and yes, I will be there soon. So excited!

3) It's a long time until the spring, but the weather has been beautiful, and yes, almost springlike. I've been outside a lot and so enjoying the sunny days. 

4) Meet Abby, the star of the Coffee-Mate Girl Scout Flavors commercial. Abby, a Girl Scout from Wisconsin, was chosen after a national search.  

  
 5) I'm still reading away. I haven't finished anything for a book review this week, but I should have two for next week. I'm between Tudor England and the Netherlands during World War II and both books are really good. 

I hope you had a great week and your weekend is looking sunny. Thanks for visiting and take very good care of yourself.

I had trouble with the link too, but I finally managed after a struggle. Glad you are still able to enjoy spring-like weather. It's been cool here with a little rain. Finished "Where'd You Go Bernadette" funny book, but the ending was a little odd. But I would still recommend it. Have a good week. I am off to the Smoky Mtns. for a week long photography class...goody!!

Glad you are still having some nice weather there. We've turned rainy and colder here. Hope you have a wonderful weekend !

It has been a while Carol. It looks as if you are still busy with many wonderful things. No Fall colors yet there...? We had cool temps this morning and the leaves are changing. Hope your week goes well. Sunday Blessings!

Buttercup, I have seen many famous pieces of art. In Chicago and the Getty museum in L.A. Some in Indy even. I really want to see the Mona Lisa someday. Glad you love art too. xoxo,Susie

I'm sorry you had issues with the link up Carol -- not sure what was happening...

I love that painting... how wonderful to be able to view it in person!

Have a lovely Sunday.
