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 chance for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
1) Wood burning! We had two piles of branches, debris and such from fence cleaning, flood cleaning and the such, and now, they're gone! It took my son and myself 15 trailer trips and tons of fire watching, but we got it done. And I didn't even find one snake under the piles...a very happy surprise.
2) My husband is home from Germany! That brings more life into the house, and lots of treats too. He had a great time (his cheeks glow in every picture he's in). And I'm not complaining about the whiskey he bought for me in the duty free shop either. Not one little bit.
3) More writing time! This comes thanks to that time change. I'm not a huge fan of the time change (who is?), but this is one aspect I love. It gets dark early, which means that the farm life slows down. No light. No work. The kids are also more ready to relax and calm down. In other words, life is now quieter and with it, more time in the evening for me to type away.
What about you? What put a smile on your face this last week? Did you see any pretty autumn trees (ours shed within a few days, so not much here)? Did you find a pretty pen or notebook? Did someone give you an unexpected compliment?
What are you celebrating this week?
