Second Friday Random Friday Five

revkjarla says: "it's the Second Friday five of the month...and you know what that means--yet another edition of a Random Friday Five! So, without further ado, let's get our random on!"

1. If a spaceship landed in your back yard, and three very cute little aliens knocked on your door and asked you to show them around Earth,where would you take them? (Remember, you have superpowers from last month's Second Friday Five, so if you need to use them for transportation, feel free to do so.) 
I think I'd want to give them some different perspectives, so I'd take them to a vast desert, then maybe to the seashore and then I'd bring them home for dinner, right here in good old small town middle America, where we could see trees and the river along with some lovely old houses.

2. What is making you grumpy these days? I miss having a regular church gig, and I'm feeling very sad that right now I cannot see a way that this will change any time soon.  I try to remain hopeful and to believe that God still has a dream for the "rev" part of revdrkate, but yes, grumpy, among other things, would cover it.

3. O.K., so now that you got the grumps out, what is one thing today that will be sheerly joyful for you? R and I both have the day off together! We have been productive, cleaning the garage and taking a load to the Goodwill, and now we are free to play!

4. I am pitifully, once again, trying to grow a garden. Last year I only harvested one cucumber. This year, I have zucchini, cucumbers and tiny tomato plants. Everything is abloom, but the jury is out whether there will be any yield. So, do YOU have a garden? What are you growing? If you don't, what is your favorite fresh summertime vegetable/fruit/flower? We have a three-pot garden for our veggies, the lettuce, sadly fried before we could eat it, but we are trying another crop.  We have eaten one of our three tomatoes and are waiting for the others along with the two peppers to ripen.  We also have six pots of herbs and some flowers.  Not bad for a townhouse, I'd say.

5. If the aforementioned aliens suddenly demanded all the contents of your closet, OR ELSE (as in clothing, shoes, etc.) but kindly said you could keep three items, what would they be? My alb (hope does spring eternal, after all), my wedding dress, even though I won't likely wear it again, still, it has lots of sentimental value, and my favorite pair of capri length yoga pants that I pretty much live in.

Have fun, and as always, let us know if you played by telling us in the comments, and linking us to your page!
