CELEBRATE THE SMALL THINGS!!!
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. Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about those moments. This is the chance for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.
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) Christmas Vacation! This is the last day of school for the kids. . .well, if you could call today school. They were already watching Christmas movies yesterday. So I doubt they'll have much learning to do today either. But then it's home for the holidays!
2) My tractor has a cute trailer! I wanted to show you a picture, but I can't find my hub's camera....so, I'll have to post this next week. But I found a little trailer to pull behind my tractor, and it makes hauling hay to the cows and firewood to the house SO much easier. Believe it or not, I was doing it with a wheel barrow before (up and down a hill). It burnt those calories, I guess, but pushing that thing around got old fast.
3) Scented Wax! I've been burning this more the last couple days and am enjoying the lovely odors.
4) Love notes from my daughter! My little eight-year-old has been writing mini-letters every night and placing them on the bed--always with hearts and how much she loves me. *sigh* If only these wonderful thoughts would hold all the way through those up-coming teenage years.
And since I didn't get a picture of our Christmas tree yet, here's one.
It's nothing special, a collection of whatever ornaments have survived the last twenty years...a mish-mash. But it's ten feet tall (now, that we have elevated ceilings I insisted on one that goes to the tippy top). So my husband tried for a panorama shot, which explains why the picture is so long.
And what about you? What wonderful things are you celebrating this week? Sit on Santa's lap? Eat a candy cane? Build up your secret spy cameras to get a shot of that sneaky sleigh when Christmas comes??? (Hmmm...now, I'm wondering why my kids haven't thought of this yet.)
What put a smile on your face this last week?
