It's time for another edition of. . .
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. Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about those moments. This is the chance for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
1) A cattle chute! Frustrating circumstances lead to a super fast, build-a-cattle-chute action last Sunday. My brother was sweet enough to cut down several cedars for poles, I picked up materials and--with hubs and oldest son too--we built a new catch pen, added a couple of gates, and constructed a solid chute 32 feet long. *manly grrr*
2) Sudden, short vacation! Other frustrating circumstances (and a lot of begging and bribing on my oldest son's part) had me, my son and my two youngest on a road trip to Little Rock, AR for several days. It was nice to get away from the farm, and the kids loved the hotel pool.
3) Ice water! Both of these activities involved a lot of hot, sweating weather. Oh, ice water! It is a true wonder and delight.
What about you? What put a smile on your face this last week?
