Celebrate the Small Things

Every Friday the amazing Lexa Cain sponsors a hop to help us remember that it's the small things in life that really make a difference. . . and we don't even notice them! So stop, take a moment and think back to all those little things (or big) that put a smile on your face.

And since Lexa can't do this alone, she has two awesome helpers:

L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
Katie @ TheCyborgMom

Thanks, ladies!

This week, I'm celebrating. . .

1) Melting snow - Wednesday it hit around 50 degrees! Okay, yesterday we had a high of 30 (And 3 hours of drifting flakes), and today it isn't suppose to be much better, but tomorrow and the next day and the next day, the temperatures are said to remain above freezing. Yippeee!

2) Lasagna! The kids reminded me that it's been forever since we had some, so I baked up a big pan this week. Yum.

3) Tea. Hot in the winter and iced in the summer. Oh, and NO sugar please. Seriously, I don't know where I'd be without my tea.

And what about you? What brought a smile to your face? A kitten? A snowman? A hot bath? What are you celebrating this week???


  1. It's warmed up here too - it's in the 80s today. Ugh. I could use a bit more winter before spring comes a-knocking. But I'm glad your weekend has good weather, a newly made lasagne (yum!), and some nice hot tea!

  2. Melting snow AND lasagne too? I'm celebrating with you!

  3. I love lasagne, I make it quite a lot :)

  4. No sugar in your tea? Good luck finding that here in the South. (Although I'm with you - please don't add a cup of sugar to my tea.)
    Glad it's warming up.
    And let me know the next time you are having lasagne...

  5. Lexa - 80s? Wow! No, it doesn't have to get that warm yet. No reason to start the work in the garden too early :)

    Marilyn - Yay. Too bad the lasagne was gone within 20 mins. Those kids can eat!

    Laura - I'll have to invite you over to our house to cook ;)

    Alex - Yeah, the people look at me like I'm nuts when I say 'tea, not sweet' around here. Warning - to get lasagne at our house, you might want to wear some extra padding.

  6. Sorry, I'd tell you what I'm celebrating, but I'm still trying to get over the fact that you don't take sugar in your tea. O.O

  7. Homemade lasagna!! It's been so long! *cries* I guess I could always learn how to make some.... >.<

    I don't put sugar in my tea either. Even if it's bitter, I'm just drinking it to stay warm.

  8. Yumm . . .lasagna!
    Wonderful celebrations! Have a great weekend!

  9. Lasagna would have made my week perfect. Instead I had chocolate cake to celebrate (smile), and a snowman... and a minion.

  10. My husband likes his tea sans sugar. I like it with a little sweetener and a little creamer. Probably why I am chubbier than he is ;)

  11. My mouse pad has a mind of it's own. Was going to say three cheers for warmer weather!

  12. I don't take sugar in my tea, either. I'm celebrating the fact that my book is going to be published in June, and I'm also celebrating what nifty art students I have.

  13. It's not Friday now. It's Sunday. But I'm celebrating the fact that I may have made a small breakthrough in the planning of a new story. A VERY small breakthrough. But I am moving forward in the planning process again after being blocked for a long time!

  14. Lasagna is one of my favorites! I have an awesome recipe, but I don't make it often because it's a lot of work.

  15. What brought a smile to my face was seeing the sun out long enough to actually melt some of our snow, even if the actual temperature was still in the twenties.


I would love to hear your valuable Tidbits -
