Friday Let's Celebrate

Oh dear, meant to write and schedule the post ahead and only managed to get the linky and the badge posted ahead and it posted anyway.  Sipping my first cup...so let the celebrating begin.

  • I'm celebrating because it's Friday and I don't have work next week, so am planning on getting lots of steps in (anyone reader use fitbit?)  Hoping to finish an afghan I've been working on and donate it to Bridge and Beyond.
  • I'm celebrating because this is my first Friday joining this linky/meme Celebrate the small things, and am looking forward to it.  I think we hear and read so many negative things it will be good to read positive nice things.
  • I'm celebrating that it's a long week-end and hubby will have some extra time off work, even though I know that's not purpose of the week-end, it's real purpose is to honor those who've served and paid the full price for our country.
  • I'm celebrating because I opened 2 nice boxes of donations yesterday for Bridge and Beyond, and it always makes me feel good to know people care.   It re-affirms my belief that there is more good in the world than our nightly news conveys.
  • I had a nice phone conversation a few days ago with my DD, since we don't get to see each other often, living close to 500 miles apart, having a nice phone call from her is worth celebrating.

Here's the afghan I'm hoping to celebrate being done soon due to extra time.

  3. Sandy, I returned! I believe there is more good than bad in the world, the news just doesn't report much of the good!!

    Also, a little side note, my new book has absolutely nothing to do about sexual slavery. It's a book about coming of age in a time of war, protests, drugs, and a music revolution.

  6. The afghan is great - and for such a good cause. Yay for speaking with DD and for the long weekend! Thanks so much for joining the hop and for visiting my blog and commenting. Yes, some people get busy and skip a few weeks, but the majority usually try to post something by Fri night. Have a great weekend! :)

  7. That's a lovely afghan, and you have wonderful celebrations. I agree it would be nice if more people focused on the positives and not the negatives. Welcome to Friday Celebrations!

  9. Thanks for getting over to my blog, Sandy and leaving a comment. I think the afghan looks so warm and inviting but also very masculine - I can see this wrapped around my husband - so many afghans seem to be on the feminine side and can look a bit out of place around a man's shoulders. I've been visiting your Bridge & Beyond site too and just want to congratulate you on all your hard work there! Amazing and so worthwhile! Makes me realise just how much we all have to Celebrate having a roof over our heads :) Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

    1. I agree with you on the male female thing with afghans, people tend to like the "pretty" colors which generally means a good number of afghans looking feminine. Thank you for the visit and thoughtful comment, nice to know you've been to The Bridge and Beyond also, appreciate the support.

    1. Kate I love my fitbit and find it truly helpful, highly recommend one. Let me know if you want any additional information. I've had the Zip, The One, and now the Flex and hubby has the Charge, so I can tell you about them.

  13. Such a nice linky, Sandy. I've been away for so long, just now catching up. Just got back from Beautiful Ohio, and thought of you. We were there with our beautiful DDs , our son, and our grands. That's why I'm just now getting around to catching up on my favorite blogs. Have a terrific weekend, Girl.

    1. Waving hello, one day when you get to Ohio, would be nice to meet up, though if your travels are like ours you always run short of time.

    1. Thank you for the visit, I didn't get my afghan done, but am on the last section, so hopefully soon. I don't know how long I'll stay with the linky, it seems lots of folks listed don't really participate. Generally these linkys require you to write your post then link that post to the linky so that way everything is current, will try it a couple of weeks and then decide.

    2. I can't click on your avatar and get to your blog? No live link?

  15. Hi Sandy, thanks for visiting my blog on the Road Trip - returning your call! I haven't participated in this celebration myself, but another blogger I follow does and I sometimes offer my own small things in the comments. It's a great idea.
