Celebrate the Small Things

Wow! It's the first Friday in June already. Zoom-a-zoom-zoom. Time keeps ticking by. And it's another week to celebrate with VikLit, over at, Scribblings of an Aspiring Author .

I'm celebrating sweet potatoes today. There are 5 slips to plant. Pretty soon I'll stick them in my Smart Pot-an aeration pot. The air prunes the roots as they grow. A 120 days from planting, they should be ready for eating.

Last night, I made a stew with the majority of the squash and zucchini from my garden. There's enough in my freezer for several meals. It's a good thing to celebrate food and the One who allows us to have it.

So I'd also like to celebrate God's kindness, His patience, and His friendship. I'm thankful for His Word. It really is life to my body, soul, and spirit.

From sunset Wednesday to sunset Thursday, this week, it was Shavuot. It's the Jewish celebration when God gave Moses the Torah, and the Children of Israel agreed to follow it. It signifies a marriage covenant. 

Why didn't I understand this stuff 30 years ago? Life would've been so much easier. Oy vey! Anyway...

Have a happy weekend. And happy Shabbats if you practice!

Hugs and chocolate!


  1. Amen!
    And nothing beats fresh vegetables.

  2. I can't remember the last time I had zucchini... maybe in a bread.

    Have a good weekend!

  3. Fresh vegetables are one of the best things to celebrate. They are a blessing in so many ways.

  4. You're Jewish, I'm Christian...but we're both celebrating God's gifts to us. That's so cool!

  5. Great celebrations and yay for fresh veggies! Have a great weekend!

  6. I admire your enthusiasm and the love you have for gardening. It must feel really good to have fresh food growing around your house.

  7. I love sweet potatoes! I'm kinda jealous that you have such a green thumb. Currently, I'm keep some herbs alive :)
    Happy Weekend!

    1. I've got some herbs growing in a garden tower. Pretty cool.
