Okay it’s been a month since I’ve posted so I feel like Celebrate the Small Things Friday is more like an entire month. My dad turned 80 and we had a lovely surprise party. He also has received a completely unsolicited offer for our childhood home which is a bittersweet blessing because it is time to move on.
This week, I’m celebrating that is National Donut Day as Lori MacLaughlin reminded me. Yay! The first year I found out about this I drove over to the Dunkin Donuts and (seriously) ordered an iced coffee and pretended to be surprised when they said you get a free donut today. After all, I’m not the kind of person who would go out of my way to get a free donut. The cashier was all like – right, you and the other hundred people who “happened” to come by.
Honestly, I really wanted to know if that was a real thing because – seriously?? Yes, yes it is.
Also this week I’ve been buckling down on writing the bad guys for several of my novels and finding they’re the same bad guys I keep trying to deal with – over and over – again and again. I’m sort of proud of myself, sort of frustrated.
How was your week? Anything great, not-so-great, bittersweet?

How great that Dunkin’ gave you (and the 100 others) a free donut. It always surprises me when there’s truth to something good like that. Congrats to your dad and I hope the house sale goes through and lifts some burdens. I try to make sure I don’t repeat villain or MC types, but it’s not easy. Sometimes our subconscious will just do what it wants. Have a lovely weekend!
Happy birthday to your dad! Good luck with your writing–maybe the sugar from the free donut will help spark some new ideas? 😉
So they do give out free donuts – neat. Happy birthday to your father! And villains are tough to write. You’ll get it 🙂
I love the thing of pretending you didn’t know! Ha. Classic. I’ve done the same thing 🙂
Ha, ha, that’s funny about the donuts. I wrote it on my calendar so I wouldn’t miss it. I’m glad your Dad had a great party. Good luck with your bad guys! 🙂
I missed Donut Day but my daughter is going to Krispy Kremes this week with Brownies, so she’ll have fun! Hope your dad had a good birthday.
