Celebrate the Small Things

Yay, it's Friday...and I SO need this weekend! But before I go lounging off into relaxation (yeah right!), it's time for another Celebrate the Small Things!
This is a weekly hop sponsored by the awesome Lexa Cain. The purpose is simply to remind us that even the smallest things are worth celebrating. If you'd like to join in, head on over to her blog, sign up on the linky and enjoy everyone's celebrations. . .reading them alone will puts a smile on the face.

Thanks also to Lexa's wonderful co-hosts:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
Katie @ TheCyborgMom

This week, I'm celebrating. . .

1) IWSG! I had the honor to co-host this month, and I'm always amazed at the amount of support and enthusiasm of other writers. This group is worth celebrating

2) My parents came by unexpectedly. I mentioned last week that they've finally sold their farm and are currently seeking new property here in our part of the world. The visit was very spontaneous, totally unexpected and had me running around with them for two hard, quick days. Did it do any good??? Stay tuned to find out!

3) I won a Christine Rains dice! There's a nifty story cube game too, which the kids dove on and have been playing most of this morning. Thanks, Christine!

4) I started working on my flower/herb garden. It's in the making, but I've already sat on the patio and enjoyed a cup of ice tea while staring at a couple of flowers. *sigh*

And what about you? What wonderful things happened to you this week? Ready for Easter? See any bunnies hopping around? Feel a fresh breeze or a warm ray of sun?  What are you celebrating???


  1. Glad you had a surprise visit from your folks. Cool you won the dice as well.
    Thanks again for co-hosting the IWSG! I couldn't do it without help.

  2. Yes, IWSG posts are amazingly encouraging! I think it's really nice that your parents may move close to you. I bet they'll love seeing their grandkids more. Yay for winning prizes! Have a lovely weekend, drinking tea and staring at your baby-flowers. :)

  3. The IWSG is truly amazing. And unexpected visits are always nice, especially from family. Happy Easter!

  4. Alex - Here's wishing you the best for next week!

    Lexa - I will :)

    Annalisa - Have a great Easter!

  5. IWSG is definitely a good reason to celebrate.

  6. Story dice!! *reaches* How fun! I have some plot cards that I play around with sometimes. :)

  7. Congratulations on the Christine Rains dice! I've been outside most of this day trying to get my flower beds settled. Have fun, Tonja!

  8. I planted some seeds last week, and some are starting to grow! Hoping my basil comes in, otherwise I'll just have to buy a plant. I thought it would be cool to have some grown by seed all by myself! Enjoy your weekend!

  9. I won too! From the email newsletter. Can't wait to hear if your mom and dad found something.

  10. I've been hearing a lot about ISWG - I'll have to check it out! Sounds like some exciting things are happening. I planted my garden last week and I love looking out at it as I work.

  11. I'm so far behind. My internet service has been getting worse by the day. But, the good news is, I finally got your page to upload. Excellent post. I'm on my way home on Saturday and I see many hours of writing and blogging ahead of me. Much better internet at home.

  12. Here from Celebrate the Small Things! ~~~ It's cool that you're gardening. My garden is starting to bloom, but the weather is so crazy in Chicago that it's still cold and rainy.
