Today is Celebrate the small things blogfest with Tara Tyler over at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author. The rules are simple; think of something that happened to you this week that made you smile, laugh or jump for joy and celebrate with a Friday post on your blog. Go here for full info but in short: sign up on the linky list, celebrate small things of awesomeness with a Friday post, hop around and congratulate others on their celebrations. That's IT!
This week I'm celebrating a small treasure I found at a re-store store. A small leather journal. It was unused and is the perfect size to carry in my purse. During the week, as I taxied my kids to sports, music, orthodontics and the plethora of places they need to be every week, I've used my *new* journal to capture characters in real life. The elderly lady at archery whose hair was so full of hair spray not even the canyon winds could shift it from it's shellacked position. The nervous teen getting braces for the first time. The mom obsessed with her iPhone. Real people living real life. I'm not sure how or if I'll ever use any of these characters in a story, but I have them just in case.
How about you? What small thing are you celebrating this week?
