Celebrate the Small Things

  This week for Celebrate the Small Things I am celebrating: Getting lots of writing done. 2. Getting a free Cinco de Mayo t-shirt from Moe’s (one of my favorite chain eateries ever!) I got there at opening time and there was literally a line around the store. Someone had even brought lawn chairs to […]

IWSG: May the 4th Be With You!

AND Happy IWSG Day AND Happy Star Wars Day! Today is also Jane Jacobs and my mother’s birthday. (I only knew the first one because of Google.) Today is also a day for me to celebrate those who made it through the A-Z Challenge and all the inspiration I got personally from that great communal […]

Celebrate the Small Things

I’ve had a super-productive week writing-wise. I decided mid-month to enter CampNaNoWriMo to give me that extra shove to finish off a novel draft, which I just did. I managed to do posts for the A-Z Challenge (though I didn’t spend as much time I wanted to.) And now that I’m feeling all creative I’m […]

Celebrate the Small Things

I’m in a big rush as I write this one for Celebrate the Small Things, hosted by Lexa Cain. This week I have a lot to celebrate. Lots of writing and other work done, including housework and  yardwork and daily exercise. Have to run now due to going to visit my dad’s girlfriend then my […]

Celebrate the Small Things

It’s Friday again and that means time to post those things we’re celebrating this week, as part of a blog hop led by Lexa Cain. This week, I have several things to celebrate. Made it to the gym/outdoor cardio every day this week. Yesterday I got to go for a fun walk at Wildwood Park. […]


What do people often say is a waste of time, not real, an escape from reality? What creates vast castles in the clouds, lone watches on gorgeous beaches, with only three things you were allowed to bring? What can frighten us in the dark of night and inspire us in the darkest of days, lead […]

Celebrate the Small Things

It’s Friday and I told Lexa Cain, the upbeat blog hop’s fearless leader, I was definitely going to post something today. Also I can always use the pick-me-up, especially on days like today when I’m feeling a smidge overwhelmed. Here’s a few of the things I’m celebrating. Getting every post done so far on the […]

Being Still

I cannot lie. Sometimes it is hard to simply sit and relax, especially when Bob (we will call him Bob) starts drumming his fingers on the desk while I’m trying to work on the computer. Sometimes, I think he does it on purpose. He must, because I’ll be there working and suddenly. Drum drum drum. […]

IWSG: Find Your Voice

Well, here is February. Like many people in my local area, I’m a bit cabin-feverish. I’ve managed to dig out my driveway, cutting a path through the snow drifts, but the roads are scary,  reduced to 1 1/2 lanes at unexpected, brake-hitting moments. I find myself only going out when absolutely necessary. I have had […]

Celebrate the Small Things

Here’s my post for Celebrate the Small Things, where every Friday we celebrate our accomplishments for the week, and I have to be honest, it has been a while – and I’m kind of wiped this week. My dad just got out of the hospital again and is in rehab, which is something to celebrate […]
