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.  Thirteen pounds of paper gone!
Sara joined me on her day off, and we spent part of it decluttering files.  It can be a stressful time.  I courageously gave her entire files to purge and didn't even look through the recycling after she left.  I found the joy this time and chanted, "Goodbye," to each page as I gleefully tossed it into the recycling basket!

2.  Next book?  
I celebrate KCLS, our local library system!  I love that I can request books from my home computer, stop by the holds shelf at the library, and come home with treasures weekly.  No, I won't read all these books, but I do share books with my after-school book club every week.  And we had eighteen students at last week's meeting!

3.  Fall is officially here!
If you haven't checked out the picture book, Ask Me by Bernard Waber and illustrated by Suzy Lee, request it now.  I captured this week's celebration of blue and yellow (with a touch of lingering green) in the Costco parking lot.
 "Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree."
-- Emily Bronte


  1. "Ask Me" is a book I loved, glad you are sharing it here. And, eighteen at the book club-Wow! It is just marvelous that you do this, Ramona. Love that ending quote-the perfect autumn line!

  2. I love all your celebrations this week. It sounds like my life.

  3. Purging can be so freeing...especially when someone else does it. Beautiful picture. I am beginning to see small glimpses of fall, but none as beautiful as your picture!

  4. Oooooh! I want to do that with my filing cabinets at home and at school. It's going on my list of things to do.

  5. Wonderful things to celebrate! Our current move has been making us purge things too - and it really does feel great!
    I keep reading about Ask Me... I think it's time I get a copy! :-)

  6. I am celebrating autumn colors and quotes from Emily Bronte with you today.

  7. Glad to hear it was helpful & way to go not going through the recycling after I left👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  8. The picture is awesome and the quote from Bronte is very thought provoking. Good luck with that purging. Just the idea of it makes me nervous.
