Celebrating 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.

This week, I'm celebrating. . .

1) Haying! Honestly, I'm not sure whether to celebrate this one or not. It's great to have the hay for the year, but the sweat and work that are needed to cut it, rake it, bale it, and bring it in aren't things which feel like celebrating, especially when it's 90+ degrees in 60+ humidity. But for the first time, we've got the machines to do our own hay, and we've been doing exactly that.

2) Pizza night thanks to my son! The oldest suddenly had the urge to bug his sister while she waitresses over at Pizza Hut, so he invited us all out to dinner. And who doesn't like pizza???

3) Release Day for Casting Shadows by Ilana Waters!
     This is the 2nd book in her Seluna series, a YA Fantasy which mix Greek myths with ancient pantheons into a paranormal romance with flair. 

4) Only one week left to the release of The Thing That Turned Me anthology! This one is sure to include the names of several authors you recognize and has stories as varied as the rainbow itself. In other words, there's something in this one for everyone.

Now, that I've rattled away, it's your turn. What put a smile on your face this last week? Did you enjoy the sun? Did you pick up a new book? Roll down a grass hill? What are you celebrating?
