Celebrate the Small things...

Friday snuck up on me this week, but here it is. As you probably know, we celebrate big and little things every Friday thanks to Lexa Cain. Be sure to stop by to check out what everyone has to say.
Here's what we're celebrating this week:

  • I finished a little project for my husband. He compared some British car terms with American ones. For example, did you know the English say something is "past it" when it's worn out.  Or "crackin' " is the same as awesome?
  • My little picture book in progress is doing well. We have exciting plans for it.
  • My sister and brother in-law are home safely.
  • A new book promotion by Ravyne Hawke for my book, Tails of Sweetbrier. If you'd like to check it out, here's the link:

  • The Olympics: We're really enjoying the gymnastics and swimming especially. I missed the equestrian coverage, so disappointed about that.
What are you celebrating this week?

  1. Good for you! So many great reasons to celebrate, Deanie.

  2. Thank you Murees. Hope you have a great weekend.

  3. Glad your picture book is progressing well! Lovely book promotion post over at Lori Carlson's. The book has such a great message. I enjoy watching the gymnastics, swimming/diving, and equestrian events, too. Usually you can find video of missed events online. Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Thank you Lori, I"ll see if I can find the videos of the Olympic stuff I missed. I love all the same events you do.
    Hope you have a great weekend too and thanks for the compliments on my books.

  5. I'm glad to hear your family's home safe, and that your husband's finding interesting things to keep him busy. Congrats on the new promotion for Tails of Sweetbrier, and good luck with the new picture book!

    1. Thanks Lexa. My husband loves cars and is amused by some of the terms the learned.Hope you're having a great weekend.

  6. Glad to hear the picture book is progressing. It's funny and interesting to learn how language evolves around the world isn't it? Crackin post!

    1. Thanks Susanne. So happy to hear from you. Some of the terms are so funny. We liked learning about them.
