Celebrate the Small Things-February 3, 2017

It's Friday!  Let's Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain!  Tonja Drecker and I are her co-hosts.

I spent a portion of this week sick.  I've had a cold for more than a week, but on Tuesday, I suddenly started feeling much worse.  By the time I went to bed, I was running a fever of 102. Yikes!  Needless to say, I felt awful.  I went to the doctor, and I seems some opportunistic bacteria decided to attack my ears and sinuses.  Taking care of three kids while ill is one heck of a challenge.  Now I know how my mom must have felt when I was little and she had to still take care of me even when she didn't feel well.  The good news is that I'm starting to feel better.  For that I am grateful.

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I'd ordered something, and that something just came in.  It's technically a Valentine's Day gift from my husband, but he wanted me to take part in picking it out so I'd have what I wanted.

I'm very happy with how it turned out.

What would you like to celebrate?
