Celebrate the Small Things

Vikki at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author has started a meme where every Friday we post what we are celebrating for the week. Thanks Vikki. It's not too late to sign up if you're interested.

This was an interesting week. Started off well, had some turbulence, but then had a flawless landing.

Anybody who's ever watched the fantastic show Charmed would remember them always saying "Our powers are tied to our emotions." That was my theme for the week. My emotions were bleak for a couple of days for no apparent reason bringing my writing to a standstill. But I'm back.

Four main things to celebrate
1. Being happy (again)
2. Meeting up with a long time friend after over a year
3. I won a $50 Amazon gift card from a blog tour for Compromising Miss Tisdale by Jessica Jefferson  and I bought the book - double bonus for me - I do love buying book.

4. Meat. Damn I love eating meat.

What are you celebrating?

  9. Congrats on that Amazon gift card. I once won a $75 Amazon gift card. I had a blast shopping online. After that, my reading pile shot through the ceiling.
    And it IS wonderful to re-connect with old friends... such memories...

    1. When I went to the Upper East I was in meat heaven. They do not play with their beef, chicken or guinea fowl. Yum.
