Celebrate the Small Things


This weekly blog hop is 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) My youngest's birthday! She's ten now. My, they grow up quick.

2) Wild flowers! Little ones are popping up all across the lawn. Purples, whites, yellows. . .I'm enjoying the view.

3) A four day weekend for the kids! I love not having to wake up to get them on that bus (it picks them up at 6:30 am). If the weather holds, we'll be heading over to my brother's for some sheep shearing and maybe get a little wool and see what we can do with that.


What about you? What put a smile on your face this week? See a good movie? Hear some lovely  Find a missing sock? What are you celebrating?

  3. Yes, our children grow up way too fast. Happy Birthday to your youngest!! I remember waiting for the school bus in the dark of morning. Ugh!
    Sheep shearing sounds like fun. Enjoy!

    1. Luckily, the bus picks them up at the end of our drive-way and living on the end of a dirt road, we don't have any traffic. So I can watch from the kitchen window.

  4. Wool! ^_^
    Lucky about the flowers! I've seen some that sprouted up almost overnight. Weeds probably. Nothing colorful.

    Ten is a good age. :)

    1. Weeds are only flowers someone doesn't want. So count them as flowers ;)

  5. It is nice not to have to deal with the morning rush of school days, isn't it? Happy Birthday to your daughter! Reaching that milestone is so much fun at that age. Not sure if reaching any other new decade brings quite the same joy.

    1. My oldest is turning twenty in a couple of weeks, and he was already complaining how he feels so old. *huge eye roll*

  6. Happy birthday to your daughter. And enjoy the flowers. There is something about the flowers in spring that just lift the heart, don't you think?

    1. I was hoping for a longer winter, but when I see the flowers, I can't help but wonder if Spring is perfect too.

  7. Tonja, I love the spring blooms! Yesterday along the interstate I noticed hundreds of them. Some were open and others waiting to bloom but when I see daffodils I always think spring. It's funny how they pop out of the ground before it's official in our part of the country. :) I'm not complaining, though. I love seeing them! Happy birthday to your youngest! They do grow up so fast, don't they? There's a number of years between your oldest and baby. That's like my sister and me. I'm 9-years older than her and when I left home she was only 9. We got married on her birthday, too. :)

    1. Yes, we have a break of several years between the oldest two and youngest two. Celebrating her birthday and your anniversary must be a treat!

  8. Flowers popping up that you didn't plant? Cool! Happy Birthday to your little girl! Have a great 4-day weekend and good luck with the shearing. Pics, please. I'm the least farm-person you can imagine, so I like to see what it is that you do. :)

    1. I'm such a horrible picture person...mostly because my camera bit the dust recently. But I'll give my best!

  9. Wow, 6.30, that's when I get up! All the flowers and blossoms have started coming up over here, too - it's such a beautiful sight.

  10. It makes me laugh a little to hear people talk about 6:30 as early, as I usually get to work around 6:15. :P But I've always been a morning person and wake up between 4 and 4:30 whether I want to or not. And happy birthday to your youngest!
