Celebrate the Small Things-August 31, 2018

It's Friday! Let's Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain! I am her co-host.

Last Saturday we decided to surprise our kids with a trip to Adventureland, which is a local amusement park. We actually kept our destination a secret until we were pulling into the parking lot. The look on their faces made the whole thing well worth it. We all had a great day, but I was so exhausted and sore by the end of the day that I could hardly move.

I've decided to take on a creative endeavor of another kind. I just made my first batch of homemade bath bombs, and I'm currently waiting for them to dry. Fingers crossed that they come out of the molds intact. I definitely enjoyed making them. This batch is citrus scented using both red and orange dye. I'm already trying to come up with other color schemes and scents I might be able to use. If this first batch turns out well, that is. If not, I might have to experiment with the recipe a little bit.

And of course I'm still working on my writing whenever I can. It's been a busy week, but I'm happy with what I've managed to do.

What would you like to celebrate?


  1. You are a sneaky parent.
    Hope the bath bombs come out all right.

  2. That's an awesome surprise.

    I thought about trying to make bath bombs, but opted to try a foot soak. That turned out really well.

  3. Awesome surprise!

    All the best with your writing!

  4. I made it through another summer. Yay!

    The kids (teens) are finally in school. I plan to blog and write as much as I can.

    Long time, no see, L.G.

  5. Best of luck to your bath balls! And I'm sure your children were so happy.
