Celebrate this week!

Join us each weekend 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.  Hot Fudge - Thursday night was our annual night of revelry.  We were worried about the high winds that were predicted to arrive during our party.  We were lucky that they held off for a few hours.  As I finished up the fudge, I asked who wanted hot fudge.  I poured it into small Tupperware cups and returned to the task at hand.  I listened to murmurs of approval around the room as each enjoyed a bit of hot fudge.  Never tried it?  It's an essential part of the fudge making process at our house!  

2.  Progress on the Kitchen Project - We have a start date, the first week of February.  We made a decision on the countertops.  Now it's on to backsplash options.  Lots of gratitude for my husband who nudges me along this path (decision-making is never easy for me).  

2.  Christmas Countdown - I'm continuing to enjoy the daily devotionals that focus on the Savior shared by my daughter through the miracle of technology.  I like knowing that mother, daughter, and daughter-in-law are savoring these words together each day.


  1. Any week that includes hot fudge is a winner! :-) You will love your new kitchen, surviving the renovation is the tough part. How special to be able to share daily devotions.

  2. I love to eat the fudge drippings after making the fudge, but never thought to offer it before it sets. Yum! Sounds like the kitchen project will be awesome, Ramona-always fun to see "new". And happen you can connect with your daughter and daughter-in-law in a special way. The internet really is a good thing in many ways. Have a great weekend!

  3. I hear you about the decision making! Remodels are such a commitment. Someday we hope to get to our kitchen, which is ancient and decrepit--though periodically freshened up with more white paint, which is a household miracle worker! Hot fudge sounds delicious!

  4. Ramona, decision making about decorating issues comes slowly for me. I am excited to hear about your upcoming project and hope that you share photos along the way. Lastly, your daily devotional work via technology sounds like a wonderful experience. Perhaps, you would like to share that with our Spiritual Journey Thursday writing group hosted by Holly Mueller. I am providing the link to my blog post so you can get a flavor of our writing:

  5. Oh yum, Ramona, hot fudge. Glad the winds didn't interrupt you. And a new kitchen, that sounds wonderful. Can't imagine all the decisions. Be on the look out for the mail this week:-)

    1. Jone, I love real mail! It arrived yesterday. I love the cards, the poem, the star (already on my tree), and the potholder. Your package will be arriving next week. My first time to participate, and I'm late!
