Celebrating Good Things
I'm celebrating each Saturday or Sunday with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build. Come join in to share your own special celebrations.
It was a week that held a snow day, a great lesson observed, my book group meeting, time with the granddaughters, a phone call from my grandson, and I'm excited to share that I was asked to be the volunteer coordinator at the bookstore. I think it will be a new kind of challenge, fun to meet some new people.
Laura Shovan, a friend and writer online offers a challenge during February, her birthday month, to write a poem a day, this year to pictures sent in by some of us of "found objects". It's added writing pressure, but fun, no expectation but a rough draft as good as one can make it. I've written every day, six poems thus far. And this is the fourth year! I celebrate writers who have a good time seeing what can be done fast. If you'd like to join in, you can see all about it here. You don't have to do every day, but can join in whenever you feel inspired.
And, remember several weeks ago when I shared about my heat problems. I continued to "limp" along, sometimes I had good heat, sometimes not. Finally I called my furnace man again, and he came Friday and put in a new thermostat. This time, no doubt about it, I have steady heat. Whew, I really celebrate that. It's amazing how much energy it takes to try to "feel" warm. And so it has made me think of those with less heat, or no heat, and wish I could do more to help.
Pictures celebrating SNOW, SKY AND SHADOWS. I love to capture what pleases me that I see.
Have a good next week with the little things, wherever you are, whatever you do!
