Celebrate the Small Things-December 20, 2013

It's Friday!  That means it's also time to Celebrate the Small Things with VikLit!

As I head into the weekend, I have a cold, but I'm definitely grateful that it's nothing more than that.  A cold is something I can cope with.  The fact that a cold is the worst health concern I have right now is something worth celebrating, because so many people aren't that fortunate.

Earlier this week, I successfully made biscuits without either shortening or baking powder.  I used butter in place of the shortening, and a combination of baking soda and vinegar replaced the baking powder.  The end result was actually really good.

I also got some good writing done this week.  My fellow writers can surely appreciate how celebration worthy that is!

What would you like to celebrate?


  1. I'm planning on doing some baking this weekend; hopefully it goes as well as your biscuits! I haven't done any writing lately, but I'm hoping to work on some short stories over the next few days. Have a great Christmas!

  2. LOL - I have always bake with butter when it says shortening. I agree, finding writing time this season is worth celebrating.

  3. Glad you got some writing done.
    Better the cold now than on Christmas Day, right? (Mom can't be sick on Christmas.)
    Have a wonderful Christmas, LG!

  4. I'm jealous of your writing time! Hope your cold goes away soon! Merry Christmas!

  5. Yay for getting in that writing time. Merry Christmas!

  6. I need to start using butter again. It really got a bum rap in the low fat era. Hope the cold goes away. I finished mailing packages yesterday, so feel pretty good. Merry Christmas!

  7. Be well!

    Merry Christmas! Family is everything - enjoy yours!
