Celebrate the Small Things
This has been a lousy week for me and I can't deny I'm glad to see the end of it. My mom has been ill and that has been a stressful situation, but fortunately she is doing better now and we seemed to have turned a corner there. But it was simply one of those weeks where nothing seems to go right. The first full week of work after the holidays was not a good one and thanks to the crazy Polar Vortex we had temperatures that were far below what we are used to in Cincinnati.
The lousy week made me appreciate this Friday fest, because it was fun to get into the spirit of the hop and think of the things that did make me smile this week. So thanks as always to Vikki at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author for hosting this lovely way to end each week.
I'm celebrating a few things:
I love warm, snuggly socks and this week I got what may be my favorite pair of socks ever. I'm actually sad that I will have to take them off this weekend to wash them. :D
2. One of my favorite shows returned for a new season. I love FX's Justified and the season premiere had everything I enjoy about the show.
3. Speaking of tv, it's no secret that I'm a total Game of Thrones geek. I am also in love with the FUNKO Game of Thrones figurines and have my very own little Jon Snow. So I was thrilled to learn that FUNKO is releasing a new set that will include Jon's wolf Ghost. Isn't he adorable? My new writing buddy.
4. Last but definitely not least, I got a huge thrill when I discovered that three of the libraries on Martha's Vineyard have The Ghosts of Aquinnah in their collections. I was even more thrilled to see that the copies are checked out. I hope word of mouth about the book will spread on the island. :)
So even though this was a week I'm glad to see end it turns out there were still some little things to celebrate. What are you celebrating this week?
Hope everyone has a great weekend ahead. :)
