Celebrate the Small Things
Happy Friday! And with this wonderful hop, it's sure to be one to celebrate. Every week, the lovely Lexa Cain sponsors this hop to help us remember that it's the small things in life that make a difference. So even if the week was a little glum, think back to those small moments that made you smile. (or even the big ones). It's too easy to concentrate on the bad.
And to make Lexa's life easier, L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and me offer a helping hand.
This week, I'm celebrating:
1)Blueberries! The kids, I, my parents and a couple of my brothers and sisters hit the blueberry patch. We sweat up a storm! (And I felt a little guilty because it was my idea) BUT I now have 30+ cups of blueberries in the freezer for all sorts of upcoming treats.
2) A tractor! Last weekend at the auction, there was a small, garden tractor--something perfect for me to putt around on. So I've been putting here, and putting there. Lots of fun.
3) Gyros! In Germany, we loved to go out for Gyros and Donerkebabs, but those aren't very popular around here (and they just aren't the same when they are). My mother-in-law sent a whole can of spices for the meat, so we gave it a try. Yummy!
And that pretty much wraps up this week. What about you? What small things put a smile on your face? Go on an inner tube ride down a creek? Stop for a gigantic ice cream cone somewhere? Discover a new, summer drink that left you licking your lips?
What are you celebrating?
