Celebrate the Small Things


Two years ago, Vikki at VikLit Blog started a weekly hop called Celebrate the Small Things. It's been a wonderful oasis of celebrations and now the baton has passed to Lexa Cain and her co-hosts:

L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
Katie @ TheCyborgMom


Thank you, Lexa Cain!

This week, my celebrations are simple:
  • Beautiful fluffy snow is gently gliding to earth and blanketing our yard.  
  • It's cold outside. I, however, am inside. In fact, I really don't have any reason to go outside.
  • There's a roast in the crockpot. Roasts are God's gift to omnivore humans. If makes me want to be a full on carnivore (at least for a day).
  • Juggernaut is happy and excited about his training and new job.
  • Magoo is over the hump of being sick.
  • Gonzo is off to a weekend of friends, fun and Christian music.
  • Hubzam and I can do whatever I want to this weekend! And I still have a slew of gift cards left over from Christmas.
  • I'm glad my Hubzam edits my blog posts (usually after they are posted). At least I can go back and fix it, ha ha.
Everybody have a great weekend, stay warm and safe.

  1. Oh, my... Gift cards are well worth celebrating (I mis-typed 'worth' as 'wroth' and nearly didn't correct it, it was so funny). Have fun - and don't forget to go crunching through the snow and making the first footprints. Before the dogs, cats, kids and squirrels get to it!

  2. Good morning, dear Cherdo!

    I like how that's worded. That's exactly the way Mrs. Shady thinks. She always gives me the choice of doing any or all of the things she wants to do. :) (That's me smiling... to keep from crying.)

    I still have an unused gift card left over from Christmas. It's for Frederick's of Hollywood and entitles me to $10 off their famous "Hollywood Dream" corset in my choice of colors. Problem is I already own one in every color of the rainbow along with a scrumptious selection of feather boas. This raises the age-old question. What do you get the man who has everything?

    That was the week that was, dear friend Cherdo. Thanks for the entertainment and food for thought and have a great weekend!

    1. You need to take that gift card and start your back up stash of corsets. What will you do if you get in a bind (pun) and ruin one of your favorite colors? Dream big.

      I just noticed how I worded it. Ha ha ha. Actually, it originally said "I can do what ever I want to do" and then I realized that I really meant Hub and I, so I added "Hubzam and" but didn't change the rest of it.

      As you pointed it...it actually was correct (smirk).

      Go and subdue! Carpe Diem! Carpe Weekend. Just carpe, for crying out loud. Have a great weekend.

    2. ...or CARP if you happen to go pishing.

  3. Your reference to your hubzam always makes me chuckle.

    1. LOL...I think that is a good thing. Baby-talking adults always amuse me, too. We have a whole vocabulary of nicknames. He calls me "The Queen of America." It's not as catchy.

  5. Hi Cherdo!

  6. Snow is wonderful - especially if you're on the inside looking out! Your family is really busy, huh? I'm glad it means a peaceful and roast-filled weekend for you. :)

    (There were a few incorrect blog addresses on the hop's Linky. I visited every site, edited broken links, and it's all fixed now!)

    1. Thanks, Lexa - you are a powerhouse, ha ha. Appreciate you assuming the "Celebrate..." duties. I can't always fit it in, but I think it is a great one. I'm making a concentrated effort to remember to do it.

  7. A friend told me we had a few snowflakes one morning last week. Whadyaknow. I can't remember the new job for Juggernaut. Is the problem with my memory, or did I miss a post? Do you think it's my memory, or did I not see one of your posts? Juggernaut . . . Juggernaut . . .

    Love,
    Juggernaut

    1. Juggernaut is in his early thirties and if I can't ask if it's okay to post something, I give very few details. That's why you see more about Gonzo...he is readily available to ask permission, ha ha.

      In a nutshell, Big J left his music biz career to train and transition to something more lucrative. He was feeling the need for solitude and increased pay; and he found it!

  8. Cooking food in the crockpot is the best - especially on cold days.

  9. I totally dropped the ball on the small things hop. I was blog brain dead yesterday, barely eeked out the lame post I did. Next week I'll do better (that's the story of my life!)

    Love pot roast. I think I need to make one this weekend. Freezing cold here too.

    1. "There's always tomorrow" is the story of my life, too.

  10. There's no snow here--just cold. Although it's supposed to be 60 degrees tomorrow, which is weird for Nashville. I'd love to see some snow for a day or two. Snow closes our city down because they don't know how to clean the streets, so heavy snow is bad!

    1. Our snow was fleeting here in my little valley. It looked lovely and acted like it might hang around...then, a few hours later, it was gone.

  11. I love parking myself in front of the heater in the dead of winter.

  15. What wonderful things to be thankful for. I love when it snows big fluffy flakes and I don't have to go anywhere. :)

    Happy weekend!
