Celebrate the Small Things-February 15, 2019

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

I'd like to start by celebrating an accomplishment I never imagined I'd be able to pull off. I recently learned to solve a Rubik's Cube! Not only that, but I've since done it several times, and I've been getting faster each time I do it. I've seen lots of people who can solve them in under a minute, and I'm nowhere near that quick. I've pulled off doing it in about five minutes, and I'm not sure how much faster I can get. Either way, I'm pretty happy with myself about that.

I'm also celebrating the fact that we don't have much winter left. My boys had two days of school canceled this week because of snow, which is insane considering how many times that's happened in the last two months. My oldest is worried they're not going to have any summer break left at all if this continues, and I can't blame him. No one wants to go to school when it's really nice outside.

Lastly, I shared post on the IWSG Anthologies blog. In that post I talk a little about how my story "Oddly Suited" came to be. I also share a a small excerpt of it. If you're interested, please check it out!

What would you like to celebrate?


  1. Never could figure out the cube.
    Hurricanes often force the kids here to miss a week or two of summer break.

  2. Congrats! Keep practicing and you will get faster. The best I could ever do was 1 & 1/2 minutes.

  3. That is cool! I remember we had one with I was little and we always cheated to solve it by peeling off the stickers and replacing them. LOL

  4. There seems to be no end to the rain here in California.

  5. That's great!! My small thing is the fact that I won a small contest - it was a small bag of coffee :)
