Celebrate Monday

Happy Monday everybody. It’s time once again to celebrate ourselves. Tell us about something good that happened to you. Something that made you happy. Something that you did that made you feel good.

It doesn’t have to be big news or anything earth shattering. Small is good, too.

I’ll go first. This weekend I read not one, but two novels a friend of mine had given me to read months ago. Granted, they were novels about WWII Poland and Poland during the Napoleonic era, but they were novels all the same. I don’t read nearly enough. I mean, I read all kinds of student work and professional stuff, but I rarely get to spend time just reading for pleasure. I’ve decided I’m going to do that a lot this summer. Starting with hush, hush, the signed copy I won from the lovely Shannon in her contest so long ago.

Anyway, what about you? What’s making you happy and/or going well in your life? Share it with us and celebrate yourselves.

  1. Both my kids slept last night and are still sleeping. I feel like a new woman.
    Have a great day!

  2. I slept in Saturday and Sunday with no worry of homework I had to get done since the spring semester is over! (But I'm taking a summer class that starts June 1). I'm also almost done reading a biography on Edward VI and then I can start reading another of the books I borrowed from the library...I think I have 4-ish left to go and they are due this Saturday! Thank goodness for renewal! :)

  8. Congratulations, Piedmont Writer! I haven't been following but I'm guessing a request for more story?

    Well, I'm celebrating my birthday today, #48. I read some history over the weekend. Like sarahjane, I don't read nearly enough. I also started a book I have to finish by Friday for a book club gathering.

    Also I heard about a new site called BookPatch.com, if I recall correctly. Saw it on the news this morning and it's supposed to be a good writing resource.

  11. I got to the office this morning and realized I left my computer at home. Work is a half hour away, so I grumbled and headed back home. I may have started the day off on the wrong foot, but I have the windows open, the birds are singing and it's a magnificent Maine day! Working from home definitely has its advantages.

  16. My family and I are going away this week. We rarely take big trips, so this is exciting. And I'm going to meet four blogger friends in Ireland, which is awesome!

    Have a great week.

  17. I took a walk today and noticed how vivid the colors of nature were against the backdrop of a cloud covered sky. Beautiful day with the sun shining despite the newly fallen snow.
