Celebrating the Small Things


Time really got away from me this week and I couldn't believe it when I realized it was Friday and time for another Celebrate the Small Things hop. This fun weekly hop is hosted by my buddy Lexa Cain and co-hosted by L.G Keltner at Writing Off the Edge, Tonja Drecker at Kidbits, and Katie at The Cyborg Mom. Visit Lexa's blog here to find out how join in the hop yourself and to see the list of participants.

I think the main reason the week flew by was because I was busy writing, which is always good. So today I am celebrating that I finished the first and second drafts of the children's story I am writing. I'm so excited!

Once I started writing this little book I couldn't stop. I had such fun writing the animal characters and I found myself smiling almost the whole time I was writing. It's hard to beat that feeling!

I hope you all had a good week as well and also have a good weekend coming up. Happy Friday and Happy Valentine's Day!

  8. I love the picture of the kitten and its 'pillow.' My cat Mariska says that's what dogs are good for, nice warm bed for cats.
    Glad to hear about your book going well. I must work more on my own.

  10. Well done you for finishing your draft. I'm still plodding my way through a story I've been working on forever. The end still seems a long ways away. Sigh.

    Have a great weekend!

  27. I get quite inspired by animals too. All it takes is a moment of observation to see what they are all about. :-)
