It's that time of the week again—time to celebrate! (I love celebrations, don't you?)
So, what are we celebrating?
Anything. . .everything! Every week, things happen which put a smile on our faces. Although some are hard to forget, others are more passing moments. But it's these small things in life which can make all the difference.
Thanks to Lexa Cain and her co-host, L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge, we can sit back for a second and remember these happy moments.
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
1) A surprise visit from my daughter! She decided to come home yesterday evening out of the blue. Although she's only 1 1/2 hours away at college, we don't see her very often. So we enjoyed it.
2) Eggs! My chickens have been on a laying pause for several months, but this week, they graced me with 4 eggs. Keep it up, gals!
3) Writing! I had a short out to a beta this week, a synopsis out for extra eyes, and will have a couple things out of the door soon. Out. . .out. . .out. See how long we can keep this momentum going before it slowly runs out of steam. An energy drink for writing would be great. . .and no, I don't mean coffee.
4) Heading off into a new chapter of life! We had some sad but not unexpected news in my hub's job area ... *cough* company bankruptcy... but we're using it as a signal to go ahead and hack another thing off of his life's bucket list. Like many little boys, he's always secretly wanted to drive a big, awesome semi truck around and experience life on the road. So that's what it is! He starts training next week. He's a bit nervous and unsure, although a little excited too. I can't blame him. It's a pretty big jump from a doctor's degree in nuclear engineering and management to trucking. And being an odd German with an 'impossible to miss' accent, he'll definitely stick-out.
He's considering blogging/vlogging his adventures, which knowing my husband, will include quite a different twist on things. . . but isn't that always the case with engineers?
Anyway, that wraps up our week.
What about you? What put a smile on your face this last week? Dip your toes in a lake or stream or puddle? Go ice skating? Take a bite of the most fantastically greasy and unhealthy hamburger ever?
What are you celebrating?
