Daily 5 - Year 2, Day 285

Today's Daily 5:
  1. the random experiences that come from having a dad who has a unique set of do-it-yourself skills.  Today I accompanied him to an autowrecker/pick your own part place.  And it's not the first time I've been to one.  I would guess not too many girls can say that, or list some of the other random adventures I've had with dad!  I've also been to welding supply shops, metal retailers, and a store inexplicably called "Princess Auto" that sells a whole range of industrial items for everything from farming to welding and electrical work! Unrelated to the DIY tendencies, other adventures with dad include sleeping in the truck, parked in a truckstop in middle of nowhere Montana, hiking places where there definitely are not trails, and camping in places where you dig your own toilet.  (Let me just add that I avoid that last adventure as an adult, but as a kid you don't exactly get asked where you want to go for summer vacation!)
  2. licking icing off the beaters after baking
  3. the wonderful feeling of waking up warm and cozy, buried under blankets after a nap on the couch
  4. bright pink toenails
  5. first nectarine of the season
