Kicking off the 2017 Friday Celebrations!


It's the first Celebrate the Small Things hop of 2017! Happy Friday, everyone!

Even though this was a short work week because of the New Year's holiday, it somehow felt like the longest week in history. It's so hard to get back to normal after the holidays.

So I'm celebrating that it's the weekend, plus a few other things.

1. I finished writing my sequel to Baby Moo's Great Escape. I still have tons of revising and editing to do but at least I got the story down. I'm excited to be moving closer to getting Baby Moo and his friends back out into the world again for another adventure.

2. I also got my new All In For Animals site up and running and I'm really excited about it! Huge thanks to everyone who stopped by there after reading about it on this blog.

3. We got a little snow yesterday for the first time this winter. It wasn't enough to cause any problems, but it was more than enough to make my dog very happy. Clancy LOVES snow and he is ecstatic every year when the first snow comes around. He gets so excited when we go outside it's adorable. Seeing my dog so happy makes me happy, so I'm celebrating a happy pup!

The only time he wasn't happy was when I pestered him for a picture. :D 







The Celebrate the Small Things hop is hosted by Lexa Cain and co-hosted by L.G Keltner at Writing Off the Edge and Tonja Drecker at Kidbits. Visit Lexa's blog here to find out how join in the hop yourself and to see the list of participants.










I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend ahead. :)

  2. Julie, congrats on getting the sequel and site done! Amazing accomplishments!! It looks like y'all got more snow than us. Last night, we got a light dusting. We may get more before the system ends tomorrow morning but I'm sure it won't stay around too long. BTW, you'll now find my CTST contributions now on Thursdays, here, and of course, if you want to some more laughs you can check out Friday Sillies. Have a blessed, happy new year, my friend!

  5. Good job on the sequel. I'm not sure Artoo's ever seen snow, at least, not enough of it to notice. Poor Clancy having to pose for a photo when he wants to play!

  10. I'm so jealous. Where's our snow? It's January and I'm seeing green grass everywhere. For being so far north (Rochester, NY) this is just wrong.

  14. I could use some snow about now. I've had it with rain! Love that you're starting a new blog about animal welfare. I wish you all the best with your efforts.

  15. Congrats on finishing that sequel! I'm in revisionland right now and while we do have snow I am NOT enjoying it. I am counting down the days til spring: 72 days.

  16. Hey Julie,

    Hearty congrats on the completion of your sequel, my kind friend. Dogs make wonderful snow ploughs, or snow "plows". Penny says hi to Clancy! :)

    We are expecting some snow for the first time this winter, later on this week.

    All the best.

  17. Congrats on finishing the draft of your new book! That's awesome! Congrats again for your new animal site. New blogs take a while to take off, so be patient. My blog took over a year to gain followers. Clancy's adorable!

  24. I love that picture of your dog. They're like children when it comes to the snow. :)

  25. Woot on getting your sequel done! One of my dogs loves prancing through the snow. My older female dog, on the other hand, looks out the door, woofs once, then walks back inside. :)

  26. Hahaha, the panda picture made me giggle off the bat. =-)

    Congrats on your big accomplishments. I hope 2017 brings great things.

  29. That's awesome about the sequel to Baby Moo! We discovered our dog Clementine loves the snow. She's a silly puppy. :)

  30. This week feels even longer than the week of the 6th. Maybe it has something to do with calling the senators and representative every day. Congrats on your animal site.
