Celebrate the Small Things - It's Halloween!


This fun blog hop is hosted by VikLit's Writing Blog and the following patron of celebrations!

Diana Wilder

CaffeMaggieato @ mscoffeehouse

In a brief, but celebratory way, let me make my list:
  1. I love Halloween - it is my favorite hallo-day, and there's a great Fall Festival tonight.
  2. In the last two weeks, a big part of my Fall maintenance and fixin' up has been completed. What a load off my mind! Very happy with my painting, wall color, etc.
  3. Had a great visit with my sister and her husband. Love them tons.
  4. My Mom visited, we had a great time and she is safely home. (Okay, the visit was great, but the fact that she hemmed all the new curtains was just pure gravy on top - I hate to hem. It's a necessary, but totally fulfilling task.  Mom, on the other hand, loves that stuff. Score for us both - eight panels of thermal curtains hemmed!).
  5. The Fall colors are peaking! It's inspiring for those who love artsy pursuits.

So, what are you celebrating? Join the gang and post your celebrations weekly!

  1. Yay to Halloween. This is my favorite time of year. I would have participated in the blog hop, but I had my scary pictures post all made up and didn't want to give it up. :-)

    1. I had the same thought, and then it occurred to me: I can post twice! I might even post a picture later...I can't be controlled by the laws of blogdom.

  3. All are celebrat-able, but hemming curtains is up over the top. You need to gold-star your post. (Does your mother take commissions? Please?) ...and will we see reflections of the fall colors in your future posts?

  4. I need to take a week or so and get my rooms repainted and freshened up. A week...or maybe a month.
