Random 5 Friday – On the Road
On October 25, 2013 | 16 Comments | Uncategorized | Tags: , , , ,

Good morning and happy Friday! Once again, I am connecting with Nancy over at A Rural Journal for her weekly Random 5. It’s been a great way to connect with other bloggers, so come join the fun!

Here’s my Random 5:

  1. I finished knitting my first hat this week. I won’t show it yet, because I want to do the blocking and finish work, but I’m pleased with myself.
  2. My tip for the week: always get the right tools for the job. When I was making said hat, I tried to use my double-pointed needles instead of a circular one, because that’s what I had in the house. It didn’t work out, though, so a quick trip to my local yarn shop, and I was good to go! With the right needles, it went faster and easier.
  3. We arrived in NYC last night. It was our first flight into JFK, and we waited in line for 45 minutes for a cab. It took less time to get from JFK to Chinatown than it did to wait for the cab.
  4. I’d love to tell you about my Neighbor from Hell, but since we’re in a legal battle with them, I’ll keep mum for now. The good news is, he’s a lot older than we are, so odds are that we’ll outlive him. We figure he’s going to be a thorn in our sides until the day he dies. He’s just that kind of guy.
  5. When one decides to live gluten-free, then more planning needs to go into travel. We ate a hearty breakfast, and then ate lunch at the airport rather than getting food on the plane (I read Delta’s menu, and the only gluten-free option was cheese and dried fruit). For the flight, I took some homemade gluten-free granola and some apples. We needed something before bed, and the nearest open restaurant was Italian, which is a bit like a recovering alcoholic going into a bar…but I found a nice shrimp salad on the menu. We’ll see how the rest of the trip goes, but so far, so good.

Have a great weekend!
