7/28/2017: Celebrate the Small Things

Friday, July 28, 2017

It's Friday and time to post my Celebrate the Small Things on this blog.

If you'd like to join in the fun or check out some other participating blogs, click the image to the right or the link at the bottom of the page.

My small things for this past week, some not so small, but all great!

First is a successful baking of blueberry banana nut bread. I took two recipes and adapted...a little moist but oh my, DELICIOUS!

Second is the addition of a puppy to our household...yes, I am seriously nuts. But what a joy he has been. What work he has been! Housebreaking is going okay - as long as we are paying attention. He has his own Instagram account and his own Facebook page, Mighty Mini-Cooper!

He had his first vet visit on Wednesday and all was generally good. He could stand to gain weight so we increased his food. A little irritation in his ears, very common on the Doodles (Poodles, Golden Retrievers, Labs, etc) so we have some natural stuff to hopefully clear that up. He got shots updated and goes back in three weeks for the rest and to recheck his ears.

He has made himself right at home...ya think? LOL!

Third is finally getting back to working on Paradise Dead, the second in my trilogy of novellas in the Lei Crime Kindle World. I hope to make my August 1st deadline to get it out to my beta readers and typo hunters. Phew!

I hope you've had a spectacular week and have some small things to celebrate!

Ciao for now!


  1. Congratulations to the new family member! He looks like he'll keep you on your toes. The bread looks amazing...and now, I'm hungry :)

    1. He has been great...and growing LONG legs. LOL! Thanks for stopping by...reminds me I'm late visiting other blogs!

  2. Your culinary masterpiece sent me straight to the kitchen for afternoon tea which consisted of dry biscuits and envy. Glad to hear you got back to work on your WIP. I've been sidetracked with another project so my WIP has been neglected for a few weeks as well. I'd be happy to beta read your ms when it's ready, if you need another pair of eyes.
    As for getting another dog...yeah, you're probably bit mad, but that's cool. Pets can be such a joy.

    1. ...and it made me hungry, seeing the photo again. I need to make some more. LOL!

      I'd be more than happy to have you as a beta reader/typo checker. Thank you!


Love to hear from you - drop a few words and we'll reply!
