Bags, Lost Bins, Deer, Percy, and 300 Posts!

Join us each Saturday for Celebrate this week with Ruth Ayres.  
 When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!

1.  I broke in my "after-retirement substituting bag" that I bought ten months ago for less than $15.   My first subbing stint was for Patty in our front office.  
It was fun to spend my first Halloween after retirement 
enjoying the costumes and the fun with no teaching duties attached.

2.  I thought I had returned all the poetry books to the library,
and then I discovered another bin in Janet's room.  
I've said it before, but people who don't lose things cut down on the celebrating 
that occurs when something is found (even if you didn't know it was lost).

3.  My good friend and I stopped on a walk to investigate a lot for sale that is perched on a ravine.  
When we walked to the edge, we discovered this deer who soon joined two others 
munching on the tasty leaves brought down during our recent windstorm.

4.  Percy poses with the Poetry Box and flyer for today's party.  
He's perfectly elated with his cameo picture on the flyer, excited for today's party,
and can't wait to spend several days perusing poems before his arrival in Utah.

5.  Shout outs to Two Writing Teachers, Celebrate this Week, Poetry Friday, 
and my blogger friends who nurture my writing life.
Today marks my 300th post!  


  1. Way to go! 300 posts! I love your thought about those who don't lose thing, can't appreciate the celebration when something is found. How true! It is fun to be in a school and not have the responsibility for student learning. You can just enjoy the people and atmosphere.

  2. That pillow is awesome, Ramona. Congratulations and I want to say I'm so happy you started blogging! Here's to more and more. Happy you had a great week!

  3. Happy 300th post celebration! Your number 2 celebration was surprising but so true. I really like your pencil-shaving patterned bag and the colorful cushion. May your new week be colorful and joyful aswell.

  4. WOW 300! That is a milestone. Congratulations. Glad to be a part of the community that benefits from your blogging!

  5. Quite the accomplishment...300 posts full of wonderful Y-O-U and all you have to share with us! Write on!

  6. I love #2! Such a great point :-) Smiling.

  7. I have to share number two with my next door neighbor teacher, she lives and breathes that each day. Perfect! Congrats on 300! WOW!

  8. 300 blog posts is certainly a reason to celebrate!

  9. So many reasons to celebrate including a LOT of readers and a lot of posts!
