Celebrate This Week - Writing from Home!

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!

Much to celebrate during my time in OK last week:

Morning walks with Kathy
Karl's willingness to chauffeur us wherever we wanted to go
Oldies from KTMC, hometown AM station
Afternoon naps with no scheduled wake-up time
Gratitude for AC since it was in the upper 90's and 100's
Lots of great meals with family and friends
BBQ, Chinese,  Mexican (3 times)
$5 senior prices at the movies for "Ant Man"
A visit from Sue Loch Walton on Sunday
Quick recipe retrievals from Kay and Sara 
Kara's arrival on Sunday afternoon
Playing 10's and 2's, with frequent calls 
to Sara and Will for ongoing "card" support
This cloud pic snapped from the car
on Indian Nation Turnpike as Jan & I headed to Tulsa 
Can you spot the raised fist?
A power strip in Topher's bedroom
A middle of the night thunderstorm
Lunch with Susan and Jan on Tuesday followed by
a visit with Susan's dad, who serenaded us with wonderful songs
Porter peaches

Arriving at DFW on Thursday with plenty of time
to read at the airport & on the flight home
 Finished two books:
Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer
 and Circus Mirandus
Absolutely thrilled to be home - 
enjoying cooler temps, an overcast sky, 
and even a smidgen of rain! 


  1. Although some sadness in your trip, it sounds as if there were also lots of sweet moments. Love the picture. Clouds are just awesome! Hope you enjoyed Circus Mirandus-fun read! Enjoy being home, too. And, must ask, are you near any of the fires? Thinking of you.

  2. Yum! I wish I could grab a peach from that crate!
    What a wonderful list of celebrations! So many memories made!
    ...I love rainy days!

  3. I love lists like these. In just a few words we can tack up all these memories of a time in one place. Then, some other day, take them down again to be relived.

  4. Ha! I am so glad you listed all these things. I tend to forget so many "slices" these days.
