5 Random Friday Finds

I am joining Nancy for the first time this week at Random 5 Friday and joining Kim as always for Friday Finds.

Find No. 1


Even an ordinary scene can look like a vintage postcard with the right iPhone apps. This is a view of our Lighthouse "Big Red" taken from the top of a nearby sand dune, Mount Pisgah.

Find No. 2


My new Heart Rate Monitor works great, I guess. I went over my maximum heart rate a few times climbing the stairs at Mount Pisgah. My personal trainer says that is the time to stop and take a photograph, so these necessary breaks are now called Photo Breaks instead of rest breaks.

Find No. 3


I found these Thomas (brand) Pumpkin Spice English Muffins at the grocery store this week. I love everything pumpkin. I only bought one package to see if I liked them. I hope there are still some left next week, I am going to stock up my freezer. They are especially tasty with Pumpkin Butter on them.

Find No. 4


A cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte, enjoyed on the beach on a beautiful Autumn day is the best.

Find No. 5


Discovering some new hiking trails on my Creative Inspiration Friday and then going back there on Sunday with my husband was worth it's weight in gold.


Eating a lettuce wrapped Jimmy John's sandwich on a park bench over looking the channel on a windy day can be a bit challenging, but even Glen will agree it was a great "forced" picnic.

  9. What a great list of finds! That app is marvelous. I'm an English muffin-lover, too, so I must look for those pumpkin muffins.

  10. Pumpkin English muffins - hmmmmm - might have to look for that. I'm not sure the first photo is exactly "ordinary" even if it didn't have the cool app. Latte on the beach - yes please!

  13. Love the heart monitor watch - nice. It seems these days just about everything is injected with pumpkin around this time of year. I have discovered that I like Carnation Pumpkin Spice creamer for my home latte. And this weekend is The Pumpkin Festival in the neighboring town - used to always get some pumpkin ice cream (cost of admission is too high to justify that now - so I'll probably find something comparable at the grocer).

  16. The iPhone photo is beautiful! Which app did you use? The pumpkin bread sounds so good!

  17. Yay pumpkin! Pumpkin anything! And your vintage postcard looks like a wonderful old folk art painting.
