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.  The 90% off remainders book sale at University Books
I purchased six books for $5.26 (including tax)!

2.  Read Wanda Gag:  The Girl Who Loved to Draw by Deborah Ray
This picture book biography about the creator of Millions of Cats
 is a great mentor text for how to include quotes from
original diaries and correspondence in a biography.  
And it has some delightful cats in the illustrations too!

3.  Discovered this remnant of Christmas cheer in the driveway
It's a poinsettia leaf bedecked with raindrop sparkles!

4.  Walked with a friend on Saturday afternoon
We delighted in the blue sky and puffy clouds
(after a week of mostly rain and gray skies)!


  1. A great deal of fabulous books - you should be celebrating! (I also love the smile the leaf brought to your face and the joy walking with a friend on a beautiful day added to your week.)

  2. Millions of Cats was one of my favorite books. I need to read that biography. Sunny skies and discounted books are a celebration any time.

  3. Knuckleheads! I was just telling a colleague about that book. Such a great read! Made me laugh out loud and have to share it with my husband. Hooray for books and warm weather! Lots to celebrate!
