Celebrate the Small Things...

It's time for another edition of. . .


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.

Ho-whoa. I'm late again...and really should write these a few days in advance.

But this week, I'm celebrating:

1) Iced Tea! The temperatures are going up (90's) and the humidity is soaring with it, which means TONS of ice tea for me.

2) Writing buddies! I'm still at the nightly sprints over on twitter - always 9:30pm EST for one hour. We've gotten into such a routine that we don't even say much but just scream out our progress at 10:30 EST. It keeps me writing or editing or whatever even if it's only a little every day. If you want to join in, just let me know.

3) Subways! My son got this sudden idea that he wanted to order a 6ft sub for fun. Honestly, he wanted to buy the 27 ft, which I explained how ridiculous that would be unless he invited our entire town for dinner, but after a little thinking and talking, he realized that even the 6ft is quite the monster to chow down.  Believe it or not, we had that thing gone in two days! That meant two days of no cooking or many dishes for me...which always makes for a happy mommy.

What about you? What put a smile on your face? Sing in the sun? Try something crazy this last week? Get to read a good book? What are you celebrating???
