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 or, better yet, head over to Lexa's!
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
1) Kids back in school! This is more of a bitter-sweet celebration. I'm sad to see them go, but I'd be lying if I'd say I get any writing done when they're around. And I desperately need to get some work completed.
2) Funny farm animals! Our neighbor is building his dream home and asked my husband to lend a hand. The man in the picture has several very friendly turkeys which love to go everywhere. This one is on the roof.
3) A brush hog! For those of you who don't know, this is a type of weed mower which is pulled around behind the tractor...a ferocious beast. And I really, really needed one. To be truthful, this is another half-hearted celebration. Part of me is thrilled that I can finally clean up some fields. The other part of me is groaning at the thought of more work. I'm still working on taking care of the wood from a gigantic tree we cut down and the Christmas storms left us with a flooded field--lots of debris to pull out of there before the grass starts growing again. If only there'd be some ice and snow, I'd have an excuse to stay in and write. . . which I'm doing anyway due to a deadline, but it's playing havoc with my conscious. So much work to get done *sigh*
Those are my celebrations for this week! And what about you? How is your year starting off? Bright lights on the horizon? Snowflakes on the tongue? Rays of sunshine warming your face? Or maybe a piece of super yummy pizza?
What are you celebrating this week?
