Celebrating All the Little Things That Make Me Happy


2. Next weekend we will open our lake trailer. Not going to lie. April was a long winter. When I should have been packing lake boxes, planting flowers and enjoying the nice weather, I was, instead, shoveling snow and wrapping in blankets for warmth.

3. Spring Flowers. I finally went this week and bought some. Created a couple of pots to put on the deck. It's not warm enough yet to plant them in the ground. But we're getting there.

4. Chloe and I have been walking again and checking out signs of spring in the neighborhood. Tulips are up. Snow crocuses are blooming. Birds are everywhere looking for food. And I think we've seen the last of the "snirt"

5. Awesome fun finds at the Dollar Tree. You have to love a store where everything is literally a dollar.

6. Subbing has been fun this week. I love making new connections with kids I didn't have in class while I taught. I also love that as soon as I walk in the door kids are asking who I'm there for. And I know they cheer because their regular teacher is gone and any sub is a good day, but I choose to smile and think they are happy I am there.

7. I think I'm finally healthy. This winter was a tough one. Flu, a major cold, sinus infection. Yuck. I am done with antibiotics!

8. Sunshine.

9. Good books and plenty of time to read them.

10. Our library's annual used book sale. I got a bag full of fun books for me and the grandkids. Bring on summer beach reading.


  1. Yes, it is finally spring on Long Island, too, Deb. YEAH! I am glad that you are keeping yourself busy this spring. I went to the Dollar store yesterday and $35 dollars later, I came home with so many great buys that it made me happy. I was wondering if you and Chloe would like to create an image poem or inspirational quote from your walks. I would really love it. The invitation is at http://beyondliteracylink.blogspot.com/2018/04/spring-salutations-with-invitation-to.html and today's #celebratelu post is at http://beyondliteracylink.blogspot.com/2018/04/celebrating-springtime-18.html. Have a great rest of the day.
