Celebrate the Small Things - A Blog Hop Post


Celebrate the Small Things


Here it is Friday again and time to Celebrate the Small Things!

  • Today I am celebrating the fact that the weekly laundry task is done, so I have the weekend cleared of that chore.  Well, it does say we can celebrate small things, right?  Of course, every week I am grateful we have a washer/dryer set here and I don’t have to go a laundromat.  As a full-time RVer, that is a big thing!


  • We had a totally awesome storm one night recently.  There wasn’t much in the way of rainfall or wind, but that was the second fiercest display of thunder and lightning I have ever witnessed, vying in intensity with one I experienced in 2005, in Washington, DC.  It was dark out, but every few seconds was bright as daylight with lightning.  The thunder would boom and roll across the countryside for several seconds.  I am celebrating the fact that we didn’t incur a direct strike here and only lost power off and on.

July 13 Maggie morning


  • Never distressed by thunder or lightning (or fireworks), the above storm was the first time our Maggie showed signs of unease and restlessness.  We were all a bit on edge, I think.  Even after getting into bed, I got up and dressed again after a while just because it was so crazy out.  She was sick the next morning, and I am celebrating and grateful that this was a one-off occurrence and not a repeat of her illness back in May. 

So there you have it – my celebrations this week!

What are you celebrating today?


  1. Glad to hear you were safe from the storm and Maggie is now doing well. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Wonderful things to celebrate!

  3. Here in Buffalo we had quite the thunder & lightning storm too! Killed my phone.

  4. oh, I am with you on Thunderstorms and fireworks, they do not bother me, actually like them. But one of my dogs is incredibly terrified by them, poor thing! Great blog, hugs!
