Celebrate: Five Star Things About This Week


It’s Saturday. Time to reflect on the week and it’s goodness. Thank Ruth for providing that space at Ruth Ayres Writes.

Recovery from shoulder surgery. This coming Monday marks a month since surgery. Still a long road but so far it’s going well.

Summer Poetry Swap. This week I received a poem in the mail from Linda Baie as part of the summer poetry swap. Her poem reminded me of my childhood. It was as if she had played in the same neighborhood.

Reading. I love to read but I am also very active. My surgery has made it so I have more sitting time(which is difficult). I have tackled my pile of middle grade novels. REVOLUTION by Deborah Wiles is my current read.

Time with my friend of forty plus years. We are like sisters. During the last three years she has spent more time as a snow bird in Arizona. These past few weeks we have had a lot of time together. Today’s her’s daughter’s wedding shower, so the celebration continues.

The new CYBILS website. The season of the CYBILS is upon us. The call for panelists and judges goes out on Monday.
Also the eight annual Kidlit Con is coming up in October in Sacramento, CA. It’s a really great way to meet other bloggers. The theme is diversity and Mitali Perkins is presenting the keynote.

What are you celebrating?

  1. Hard to think it’s been a month since your surgery, Jone. I’m sure you’re happy it’s behind you, & I’m glad it’s better every day. Thanks for sharing about my poem, thrilled that it pleased you. My long-time best friend is in another state, but we can pick up where we left off whenever we see each other. You are fortunate to have yours close, at least most of the time. I’m looking forward to the Cybil’s work-hoping to join in again. Have another good week!

  2. I’m so glad your recovery is going well. Such a nice week to celebrate. Weddings are magical. And so is poetry. Mine is running late. Sorry!

  3. Wishing you good recovery. Not only is your shoulder getting better but you got some reading time too. A poem from Linda is a gift indeed. Your forty something friendship is valuable. Wonderful celebrations.
