It's Friday, a day I've been waiting for all week. And I'm betting some of you have been too. So what are we going to do on this fine day?
Well, celebrate the small things, of course!
Remember all those things this last week which put a smile on your face. The big ones, but mostly the small ones. Everyday there's a moment (however tiny) when something nice happens. And now, we remember that!
This is a weekly blog hop sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself. If you'd like to join in and add a little more joy to your week, then go ahead and sign-up on the linky below!
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
1) Rest time! I did something to my foot last week (probably twisted a bit when my brothers made me march all over a hillside in search of a cave opening which wasn't there). The only way it's going to heal is to get off of it for awhile. Isn't it great that it just happens to be NaNoWriMonth? Now, I have the perfect excuse to sit in front of the computer all day and write.
2) Going fishing with the kids! First, let's make something clear--I am not a good fisherman. Patience is a virtue I'm still working at. But the kids had fun. They didn't catch a thing but enjoyed chasing frogs and collecting dried flowers.
3) My youngest wrote her first song/poem thingy! It was cute, but there was a line which really knocked my socks off. "There's a storm building inside of my heart, and it's making me sad." She's only eight, so I was shocked that she thought this far. When I asked where she'd gotten it, she said that it was simply how she felt. I wish I could have thought that way at eight. It would making writing so much easier now.
And what about you?
See a last flower? Sit under the stars? Grab some hot apple cider? Find a pen in your drawer?
