Continuous small treats!

                                 So excited to join Saturday Celebrations with Ruth Ayres! 
                       It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday.

Discover. Play. Build.
                                    A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!

1.  Woo Hoo!  When I copied and pasted the header for my Saturday Celebration, it came out centered without any extra work.  That's never happened before.  One of the mysteries of my life is the technology issues I face.  But any day when technology works for me is a day to celebrate.

2.  Linda's quote inspired me to share this favorite quote by Iris Murdoch:  
"One of the secrets to a happy life is continuous small treats." 

3.  This was our midwinter break, and I savored many small treats:
  • baking oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for hubby to take to friends in TX, 
  • spending the day in PJs while I graded a mountain of papers into a small hill,
  • reading People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks for a google chat book club with two dear friends, walking with a friend, dining out with friends, sipping hot chocolate with a friend, and watching an afternoon matinee of "Monuments Men" with a friend!


4.  I visited my favorite spot this week at sunrise after dropping hubby at the airport for an early flight to TX.  The twinkling lights are from Seattle.  


5.  And I stopped by the park one evening to share the predominant color of our mid-winter break.  However, I celebrated each sun break during the week with a happy dance.  

Have a wonderful weekend filled with small treats!


  1. How wonderful to have mid-winter breaks! We don't have them around here. I love your cloud picture! Sounds like it's been a great week and you will be renewed and ready to get back to school.

  2. Love your small treats, so our idea together is to s.l.o.w down and have small treats, right? Sounds great to me, Ramona! I too caught a moon pic after delivering my family to the airport on their way to Texas-too funny, & it was very early! Love the pics, I could look and look! Glad you had a break too-much fun to be off doing different things! Have a good week back too!

  3. What could be better than PJ's all day and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies...assuming you kept a few for yourself! Once again, the pics are beautiful! Sounds like you enjoyed your break and will be ready to go next week.

  4. I love the Iris Murdoch Quote. And it sounds like you managed to fill your week with a lot of small treats! Your photographs are beautiful!

  5. Another great photograph, Ramona - love that sliver of sunlight. You had a well deserved and relaxing mid winter break - and you sound refreshed and ready. Woo hoo!
