Celebrate the Small Things!

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly celebration created by VikLit and now hosted by Lexa Cain to celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large. You can learn all about it and sign up for it here.

This week hasn’t been the greatest, what with my son being sick with a bad cold for most of the week, with the issues I had with piracy, and with the fact that it’s snowing again as I’m writing this. Still, there are some good things to celebrate:

  1. It’s Friday! Enough said.
  2. Spring will eventually get here. I just have to have a little more patience.
  3. Now that my edits are done, I’m starting to get caught up with some other things that were piling up.
  4. Next Tuesday, April 12th, is free cone day at Ben & Jerry’s! Free ice cream! And not just any ice cream — Ben & Jerry’s. Yum!!

What other celebrations are going on out there?

Some great things to celebrate this week, not the least of which is sunshine!! June was such a rainy month here that it hasn’t felt at all like summer.

My first book event last Sunday, The Craft of Small Publishing in Vermont at the River Arts Center, went well. It was a small venue, which was great for me for a first event. I wasn’t half as nervous as I thought I’d be, and I sold a book! Yay! I know one book doesn’t sound like much, but for me it was a success. I like to set small goals, so I’m less likely to be disappointed.

I visited Bear Pond Books in Stowe, VT, yesterday and dropped off two copies of my book for their shelves. Hooray for independent book stores!

We stopped at the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream factory on the way home from Stowe and got ice cream cones to celebrate. I can personally attest to the fact that B & J’s salted caramel blondie ice cream is delicious!

Looking forward to the Fourth of July parade tomorrow and good times with friends at the fireworks. Happy Birthday, America!!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
