Really Random, 8/2/12

To those of you who linked up last week, thank you VERY much!

July was a good month and I kept up every day with my photo a day.
I forgot to add this a couple of weeks ago--the water tower in the town where we had the quilting retreat. I think every town should have a smiley face water tower.
And everyone should have this sign on a wall somewhere close.

It IS going to be hot for the next couple of days. How did our State Farm agent know that?
My parents just finished a month-long celebration of their 64th wedding anniversary. 64 years! I'm so proud of them.

The tree in our backyard continues to grooooow.

I often find random pictures on both my iPhone and iPad, usually after someone has been playing Toca Boca hair salon, an app I highly recommend.
I love pictures like this, Levi playing with his great grandfather.
Last week, I noticed that the pianist for our church worship team had all his music loaded on his iPad. Having at one time been a pianist for the church choir, and sometimes had music spread out all across the music holder, this bit of technology looks like a winner.
I can't tell you how many times I have watched this video. Let's just say it is a LOT! Even you Pepsi lovers should enjoy it.

Charlotte wore this dress to church the other day. It originally belonged to her mommy. I just love everything about it--the puffy sleeves, the smocking, the color. It looks adorable on her.

A very good philosophy (you can get these labels here).
And because I try to adhere to that philosophy, I try to make sure the toys that our grandchildren play with here are color-coordinated with their outfit...
What kind of randomness did you encounter in the last week? Do tell!

Colour co-ordinating toys with clothes, and admirable philosophy to live by... ;o)

Great randomness. I think every town should just have a water tower. I love seeing them on our travels and you always know where you are!!!!!

Congratulations to your folks! The little ones are so darling too.

Great Coke video. I wonder what that would look like in my house. Hmm.

Great random post! Congrats to your parents for their anniversary. I have been keeping busy this week with freelance projects, so I haven't ventured out too much to encounter much randomness. Always fun to see yours!

Does "randomly" choosing fabrics for a quilt count? LOL!!! It's the best I could do. Not a lot of random around here. I need to work on that I suppose :*)
