Celebrate the Small Things-November 17, 2017

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

We bought a used car last weekend.  It's an SUV that has enough room to haul the kids and various other things, which is nice.  Since it is used, it needs a few repairs done.  We already got one of those fixes done, and the others will be completed as time and money allow.

We also got a new washer and dryer.  Our old washing machine was completely dead, and our old dryer took about six hours to actually dry anything, so it was past time to get them.  We also got both for the price we'd been expecting to pay for one, so that was great!  I'm definitely happy about that.

Zoe's first birthday is on Wednesday!  I can't believe she's going to be one year old already.  She's been proving her age by walking across our living room for the past week.  She's still wobbly, but she's getting better at it every day.

To all of my fellow American blogging friends, Happy Thanksgiving!  I'm going to be eating entirely too much food over the next week.


  1. LG,

    Our washer and dryer are getting pretty old. At times, I think our washer is going to go ka-poohie but she keeps going! This is our 3rd one over 38 years and the last one we bought was in the early millennium. I think every American will have too much to eat next week. We are indeed a blessed nation with plenty on our tables, even those who have less are still better off than many in other countries. Have a joyful, blessed Thanksgiving!

  2. Glad you found an SUV and washer and dryer. With three kids, you need both.

  3. Hooray for your new car, washer and dryer. Yay for Zoe walking around. I'll bet everyone is cheering for her. Hope we see new pictures of her soon. Happy weekend.

  4. Wishing you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving

  5. Congrats on the 'new' vehicle, and the whitegoods. 6 hours to dry clothes? Here in Darwin clothes air dry on the balcony in a couple of hours. A little longer in the wet season.

  6. Some great things to celebrate! Hope Zoe has an excellent first birthday.
