8/4/2017: Celebrate the Small Things

Friday, August 4, 2017

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

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

First was taking Cooper to his first doggy day camp visit. He loved it and we got some time to run errands and see a movie. What movie? "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets", which we both enjoyed.

He was POOPED!

Second was spending time with old friends. One was a former co-worker of mine who drove all the way up from Atlanta to have lunch with me. Due to bad weather, she spent the night. We had so much fun chatting and we promised each other to do a real weekend visit this fall.

The other was an old neighbor of mine. She was about 16 the last time I saw her. Since then she graduated high school, enlisted in the Army, got a college degree, got married, had a baby, returned to civilian life and got divorced. She currently lives in NC but is thinking about moving back to TN. I sure hope so - she has the most adorable little boy. We had breakfast and chatted for over two hours and would have stayed longer but had crated Cooper.

Third was the progress I made on Paradise Dead. The last time I wrote anything in it was back in mid-April. So I opted to edit the first ten chapters, getting my head back into the story. I got that done AND I got another six chapters written. Hoping to close it out this weekend and rush it through edits and proofreading before the August 12th deadline for publication. Phew!

Fourth was the birth of our newest great-grandson to my late husband's grandson and his girlfriend. This is the second boy and they are thrilled (so am I)!

Ciao for now!


  1. Congratulations on spending time with your friends, finding time to work on your book, and the birth of your new great-grandson!
    We have two dogs that look similar to your dog. It looks like he had a good time at the doggy day camp. lol
    Valerian looks good. I would like to watch that one when I get the chance.
    Have a good weekend!
