Celebrate the Small Things

It's Friday!  Which means it's time, once again, to Celebrate the Small Things with our host Viklit.

This week I'm celebrating:

Awesome Authors  On Monday I featured two amazing authors as part of Writers 4 writers and announced Yolanda's book giveaway winner.  On Tuesday I featured Alex Cavanaugh for the release of the final book in his best selling trilogy (release week is still going on today, BTW.  If you haven't commented on Alex's blog yet go there and comment for a chance to win CassaStorm swag!)  And on Wednesday I posted the review of Elizabeth Gilbert's first collection of short stories, Pilgrims, which I absolutely loved.  It's been an awesome week!

Cooler Weather  It's been dropping down into the fifties most nights and I've actually needed my jacket!  Granted, it climbs back up into the high seventies during the day- but still.  The crisp air holds the promise of fall and I'm scenting it like a hound.  My favorite season approaches...

At long, long last: Vacation  Today is my last day of work until the following Monday (the 30th).  That's 9 full days away from work!  And no, unfortunately, I won't be relaxing the entire time- I'm helping to do team tournament stuff on Saturday and Sunday is reserved for seriously unpleasant but very necessary household chores.  But after that I'm free for an entire week!  It's the first week off of work I've had in over a year and I so, SO need it!  I will be blogging about all the fun activities we do next week, so if you're interested stop by.

And now it is time for you lovely folks to hop along!  Happy Friday!



  1. Enjoy your time off! Don't spend too much time on housework - it's only going to get dirty again anyway. :)

    And I hear you about the weather. It's been so nice. A little warmer where I am, but still perfectly comfortable. I love fall. :)


Thank you for your comment! I will love it and hug it and pet it and call it George. Or, you know, just read and reply to it. But still- you rock!
