Celebrate The Small Things

This weekly blog hop is sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself. 

What exactly are we celebrating?

Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about these moments as if they never existed at all. This is the chanc
e for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.

This week, I'm celebrating. . .

Busy, busy, busy. . .that's why I'm late this week. But here it goes!

1) Spending time with my brother and his family during their visit. We only get to see them once a year, so this is always a real treat.

2) Hay is done! We have So. Much. Hay. I think we hauled in around 2000 bales, and I am so glad it's all in the barn. I'll put up pictures next time. But. . .wow. I need to rest for at least a week. 

3) A day in the city! We drove to the city yesterday, went shopping, ate ice cream, picked up a few supplies, ate more ice cream. . . gosh, I love ice cream. It was a nice change of pace and a cooling break.

There was more to celebrate this week....I know it....but I can't think of it at the moment. That's what too much sun, heat and humidity does when working in those fields. As if my memory wasn't bad enough as it was. Lol!

So, what are you celebrating this week?
Eat ice cream?
Find a nice, cool shade tree?
See a beautiful star?
Run into someone you haven't seen in a long time?

What are you celebrating this week?


  1. That's a lot of hay. No wonder you needed a double helping of ice cream.

  2. Much deserved ice cream treat! ^_^
    Speaking of heat, I'm celebrating the batteries getting replaced in one of the thermostats at work. Lol!

  3. Ooooh, I need some ice cream! We were keeping Moose Tracks in the freezer but it was too addictive. Now I'm craving....LOL!

  4. Ice cream stands out to this reader as the definite highlight. Glad you've enjoyed spending time with your brother and his family.

  5. Tonja,

    I love seeing those big bails of hay laying in fields out in the country. We got out for a drive yesterday and spotted a large field filled with dozens of rolled hay bails. It makes me think of fall. :) I had too much ice cream last week. I don't need a reason to celebrate, I'm ready to dive into a bowl of ice cream any time someone screams "ICE CREAM". A nice cool shade tree sounds nice. While I didn't find one of those, part of our drive along rural country roads was very much shaded by trees and hills. It was really nice, too. I'm trying to remain positive about summer despite the heat and humidity, instead of wishing the season away like I'm normally guilty of doing. I'm trying to slow down to enjoy the moment because that's all we have. Once it's gone, it's gone and boy, are my days moving faster than I want! Have a good week and thanks for stopping by for a visit!

    1. PS: Have you heard any news on Lexa? I'm concerned about her since her last post of being under the weather. It sounded rather serious to me.

    2. Nope. Unfortunately not. I've been wondering as well.

  6. That's a lot of hay. I see many happy horses in the future. Congratulations on all those bundles and the ice cream, of course.
