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) My husband's birthday! He's not an excited birthday man (hates getting older), but he'll always eat the cake and accept the presents with a smile. We only had a little celebration this week and are planning on doing something fun this coming Monday (Labor Day.)
2) Plums! And I'm talking lots o' lots o' plums. Our 3 wild plum trees are completely weighed down this year. So hubs decided to use them for wine. Well, we had enough juice for that a good 5. . .10 gallons ago. My husband is one who refuses to let anything he touches go to waste, so it's been a plum juice cooking kitchen all week long (even cooking dinner has become a battle since he won't let me near the stove.) I'm afraid we still have a couple gallons left to go. Anyone want some? It is delicious!
3) I got another short story out the door! I have not been a productive writer for some time now, although it isn't for a lack of trying. (Life simply isn't calming down enough for me to concentrate.) Getting this one completed and out by the deadline was a forced accomplishment and hopefully, the beginning of a wave of writing swing.
What about you? What put a smile on your face this last week? Feel a cool breeze? Enjoy a glass of wine? Try something new? What are you celebrating?
