Yep, 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. . .
Ugh. I'm really wracking my brains this time. What even happened this last week???
1) Quiet week! There really wasn't anything big going on, but simply a lot of here and there and everywhere. Not sure what I got done. Not sure what I even did. But the week went by. Wow.
2) Cleaning! That's what I did a lot of. Can I celebrate this? My brother and his family are stopping by this coming weekend. We haven't seen him in over a year, so we're looking forward to it. And since we're getting guests, it's a great drive to finally clean those things I usually wouldn't. Then I can lean back and ignore that stuff again.
3) Baking! The temperatures are slightly cooler this week, so I got the oven going and baked some oatmeal, chocolate chip cookies as well as a 2 ft long braided raisin bread (German style). And after 3 days, it's all gone. *sigh*
4) Breakfast with my son! My oldest is really a hard working guy. He goes to college full time, runs an online resale business, works at the college part time as a computer assistant AND pulls three night shifts as a maintenance guy at Walmart. This last week, he wanted me to meet him in town when he got off at 7am and take him out to breakfast. I'm betting this will become a weekly thing and am enjoying it since it won't last forever.
What about you? What put a smile on your face this last week? Get to ride a broomstick? See a pretty sunset? What are you celebrating?
