Celebrate the Small Things


Celebrate the Small Things

It’s Friday and time once again to Celebrate the Small Things

Today is my second Friday as a participant in this blog hop.  What a fun way to stop for a moment or two and be mindful, and to nudge me back into the writing habit.  Here we go!

  • Today I am deliriously celebrating the weather of this week.  After a warm, icky and rainy start to the week, we experienced two days with highs in the mid 50s and a gloriously sunny day today with an expected high of lower to mid 70s.  Although you would think I’d be acclimatized to heat and humidity as a native Texan, I really suffer on those days and tend to stay indoors.  Days like this week are indeed a relief.
  • Keeping in mind the above, today I am celebrating we are in a setting where I can do some “digging in the dirt,” with flower beds.

  • Today I am giddy with celebratory technological happiness that I found an iPhone calendar app that meets my needs!  The calendar app that is native on the iPhone was driving me bonkers.  Found Pocket Informant, which I do believe is what I was using on my Blackberry before I switched to the iPhone a couple of years ago.  Finally!  An app that works well and has the features I need.  Not that my personal life is all that busy (far from it), but I do need a calendar with task, event, reminder and note features for work.  Yay!  Love it, love it, love it!
  •  Today I am celebrating (and grateful) that it is a day I feel pretty darn good.  Can’t say that every day, but today I can!


What are you celebrating today?


  1. I still gave to write mine, love yours!

  2. I love to dig in the dirt and grow things myself.

  3. I can understand the distaste of the TX heat and humidity. Intolerable here today. I went in to town to do laundry. The one little laundromat for miles and miles around is a hole in the wall. Most machines broken. Dryers that don't dry. AND no a/c on a 90 degree day. Walking outside was worse. That's okay - today was my last time there. I'll stop whining now.

  4. It's great hearing your enthusiasm! Yay for pretty plants and apps that make life easier! :)
