Celebrate the Small Things-August 18, 2017

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

Zoe has more teeth coming in!  Only a couple of weeks after her bottom front teeth broke through, she now has the top front teeth visible just below the surface.  This has made her a tad irritable, but I can't blame her for that.

The novel I've started work on is taking some interesting turns.  The plot is growing and I may have a series on my hands now.  It's too soon to say what lies ahead, but I'm having a great time with it!  Even if the scope of this project is a little bit frightening.

The eclipse is on Monday!  Eek!  I'm looking forward to this so much.  I have a telescope, solar filter, and video camera so I can hopefully record the event.  Well, the crucial bits anyway. My laptop battery isn't good enough to capture the entire thing from start to finish, but as long as I get part of the lead up and totality, I'll be happy.  I just need the clouds to stay away.  If I do get good video of it like I'm hoping to, I'll share it with all of you.

What would you like to celebrate?


  1. Congrats on your daughter's new teeth coming in. Not so much on the irritability. :o)

    I'm glad you're having fun writing your novel. That's a good sign!

    Oh, I just heard about the solar eclipse yesterday! I need to look it up to see if I can view it in my area. How exciting!

  2. A positive week for sure! We bought tickets to watch the eclipse at a small town country club, an event sponsored by our favorite microbrewery. We get a commemorative pint glass and 2 glasses of a stout beer brewed just for the event. We're excited!

  3. Great news about your novel, and with Zoe's teeth coming in. Good luck with the eclipse!

  4. It was quite a few years ago now, but I well remember my children teething. The novel sounds exciting. It's great when an idea takes shape and then develops into new things. It's on my 'to do' list as a writer: to pt together a series. Good luck with it.

  5. Watch out, soon she's going to start gnawing on you with those new teeth. ;)
