Hey, Hey, Hey! Let's Celebrate The Small Things
Welcome to this weekly blog hop sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself.
What exactly are we celebrating?
Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about these moments as if they never existed at all. 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. . .
This week actually started out rough. We had a stray cat taking over our barn and not allowing any of our cats near the food or shelter. So my husband decided to catch it...and we're talking ultra mean, super fighter cat. My hubs got her, but not without battle wounds that left his right hand swollen for a few days. Then, our dog was bitten by a snake (thank heavens not poisonous) and has been limping along most of the week. (Not to mention a stupid cold I've picked up which has really made my head fuzzy) So I'm all about turning to the sunny side of life and celebrating now.
1) Winning a GC and an ebook! That always puts a smile on my face.
2) Pizzas! Tons o' tons of pizza! My son decided to help out his fiance with a fundraiser and bought 30 pepperoni pizza kits. (Yeah, he let his love really shine) Alas, he forgot to tell me about this great deed until a couple of hours before said pizzas and fitting ingredient packages were delivered and needed to be stuffed into a freezer immediately. It was a super-duper make space and re-stuff freezer until it's bursting to the gills sort of thing. But now, we've got tons of pizza to eat!
3) Winning a baby package from Walmart! First--no, I nor anyone in my family is expecting a baby. . I was just grocery shopping, when the kids saw the 'guess how many cotton balls are in the jar' contest and wanted to give it a go. As luck would have it, we know someone who can definitely use the baby things. So she'll get a smile on her face too. Double celebrating is especially fun!
4) Cooler temperatures! Yes, I am REALLY excited about this. The last few nights have gotten down to the mid/lower 50's. And the days have stayed in the lower 70's. Goodbye 90 degrees and hello comfortable!
Now, it's your turn. What put a smile on your face this last week? Get a lot of writing done? Find time for an extra coffee or maybe even a glass of wine? Get a glance at a huge pumpkin? What are you celebrating this week?
