Celebrate the Small Things




It is the last Friday in May to Celebrate the Small Things with VikLit, at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author .

So this week I celebrate:

1. The Sweetman is home. Yay! But he must forge ahead to learn a new way of eating to prevent kidney stones and now to keep his blood sugar level.

I believe he can do it! I'm here to help him.

And thank you everyone for your prayers, positive thoughts, and well wishes. God is good and very real. 

2. Two Sundays ago, I spent a couple of hours at a water park with my grandson. He's getting so big.




3. My garden is doing great even though I've had to hand pollinate my squash and zucchini. I've even lost some.


We ate these for dinner the other night. The Swiss Chard has been mega plenty everyday. I've been using it in my daily smoothie.

One tomato plant died from some black fungus. But my other one survived and is lush and green. It's sprouting flowers.

My green pepper plant is doing outstanding. And I have jalapeños coming out the wazoo.

4. My crit partner got her computer back. Yay!

5. This week, I actually got 3 whole hours of writing time in on Killer Stilettos. Slowly but surely. Right?

6. I will also be participating in The Write Club. Click on the link to find out more.


I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Happy Shabbats if you practice!

Hugs and chocolate, all!
Shelly

  2. I'm glad to hear your hubby is on the mend. Your little grandson is really getting big. I will probably only do tomatoes this year. I'm getting a little worried because of all the rain we've had here. Congrats on your entry to The Write Club. I'm too chicken to enter it. :)

  4. I planted some greens - I think the ants ate them all. Nothing came up. I think I'm going to skip it this year.

  7. Good news about your husband!

    Your grandson is adorable.

    Three whole hours of writing is awesome when life is a hectic as yours seems to be.

    I just put out my tomato plants. It's been too cold still to put them out before now. Here's hoping they survive!

  11. Good to see it's going your way.
    Now, cue embarrassment: what are those yellow vegetables in the photo? We rarely see anything more exotic than potatoes over here.

    1. Florida is notorious for plant fungus. I mix things up with milk, coffee, Epsom salts and neem oil.

      The grandbaby loves the water park.

  15. Glad hubby home and on the mend. The celebration of your garden sounds wonderful. We've certainly done our fair share of hand pollinating when were doing aquaponics....

  16. Your squash look great! I haven't even planted anything. May was ridiculous weather. Now it's better. Hope your husband will remain stone-free! And what a cutie!

  19. Slowly but surely has been my writing motto lately. My author visits and day work has been keeping me busy but I'm hoping to get back to my blog and novel this week and over the summer. The Swiss Chard sounds scrumptious for a smoothie. I made one with kale, spinach, lemon, pineapple and cucumber over the weekend. I like to juice everything first and then throw the juice in the blender with ice for 10-15 seconds. Sometimes, I add a banana or protein...so good!
    I hope your muse continues to stay with you and you get even more time to write! And I believe in the power of prayer so I will keep your family in my thoughts, Shelly.
