This week we're celebrating---




As you may know, on Fridays we celebrate things that happened during the week. Special thanks to VikLit, who started this blog. Please stop by VikLit.blogspot.com, to find out what others are cheering about.
 Here's what we're happy about this week:

  • I've been chosen to become secretary to Amb. Claire Power Murphy's Free Online School. It will be an exciting venture, although as usual, I get a bit apprehensive about new things. I will do my best.
  • Two of my wonderfully gifted author friends, Sarah Mazor, and Janice Spina, have released children's books. Sarah has published The Purim Story and Janice has released, Jerry the Crabby Crayfish. They are both amazing stories and I hope you check them out on Amazon.com. You'll love them.
  • Warmer weather today! The weather is much warmer today, so that's definitely cause for celebration, although the forecast is for cold again next week. At least we can take a little break from Winter, Yay!
Thank you everyone for stopping by and have a great weekend.

  6. Congratulations! The weather here is a little warmer too, though I'm sure it won't last. We'll be back to gale force winds and flooding in no time.

    1. Thank you, Laura. We don't expect the warmer weather to last a long time either. Rain and flooding aren't too appealing. Happy weekend.

  11. I can understand the feeling - being apprehensive about new things. I try to remind myself that the outcome is never as bad as I imagined it would be. You'll be fine.
