Today is. . .
Celebrate the Small Things!
This is a weekly blog hop sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself. If you'd like to join in and add a little more joy to your week, then go ahead and sign-up on the linky below!
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
1) A visit from my brother! We haven't seen him for about a year, so it was nice to have him pop by.
2) A pig! A farmer asked us to buy his 400 pig for butchering to help him out. Now, we don't really have a great pen for a pig. So we did a quick goat/pig swap with my other brother (who breeds goats and wanted to borrow our billy anyway) and have had a big pig grunting in the goat pen until this morning. Then it was off to the butcher. My biggest problem now is trying to figure out where to put all that meat with a freezer already full of all sorts of things. Pork anyone?
3) Parent-teacher conferences! Why am I happy about these? After all those problems in Germany it is SO nice to hear the teachers say "Your kid is doing very well, and we have no problems with him/her." Seriously, the move back from Germany was worth it just for this phrase.
4) Kids at home! With parent-teacher conferences going on, the kids have a day off today. What are we going to do? I have no idea. But I love having them around.
What about you? What put a smile on your face? Did you get to ride a pirate ship? Take a hot bath with lots of bubbles? Find a new song? Eat a wonderful piece of cake?
What are you celebrating this week?
