Never Forget to 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. . .
1) Last week being over! As they say, the sun will come out tomorrow. And although I can't say that all problems have been solved, at least there aren't any new ones joining in. So that brightens things up tremendously! My husband made it through his surgery with less bone and knuckle removed than expected. Unfortunately, the lab results didn't pin point exactly which bacteria he's being attacked by. So we're off to another specialist for that (don't want any more of his bone to be eaten away). But he's got a lovely hot pink splint with a pea green wrapping. My kids love it.
2) Halloween! The kids had fun trunk'or'treating, and it was cute watching them run around in their costumes. My sweet tooth had a blast too.
3) The opportunity to take an online book review vlogging course! Next week, I'll be exploring the world of vlogging through an online class (one I received a scholarship for-yippee!). I'm not sure it's the thing for me, but might as well see what it's about and learn a few things.
4) The wonderful author Paula Berinstein agreed to join me here on Kidbits for a series on producing audio books as an indie author!!! I'm really excited about this one. Among other books, she has a lovely mystery series for upper middle graders which revolves around a detective school, and the main characters are descendants of Sherlock Holmes and Co. It's one of my favorite MG series this year, so I was all smiles when she said yes. It will be next week, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. So feel free to spread the word and drop by!
And what about you? What put a smile on your face this last week? Did you go all out for Halloween? See a ghost lurking in the shadows? Maybe grab a mug of warm apple cider? Or spend the day at the beach? What are you celebrating this week?
