SOLSC 18/31: Celebrate This Week

Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" 
to the Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Betsy, Beth, Kathleen, Deb, Lisa, Melanie, and Lanny
for hosting this meeting place each day in March
and for nurturing our writing lives.

                            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! 

I love kicking off the weekend by celebrating moments from the past week.  It has truly changed the way I live each week because I'm always cataloging moments I want to share.  If you don't know about our Celebrate This Week group, stop by Ruth's blog to read of the magic delivered Friday night by her son Sam. 

I woke up early this morning thinking about heartwarming moments I wanted to share.  So here are the best heart warmers of this past week!

  Blue sky on Thursday!
And blue sky predicted for Sunday!

This spot of pink blossoms on our driveway (without
the usual raindrops adorning them).

Reading picture books to my six week old grandson - I think he already has a favorite - Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes!

This church sign spotted on the way home from the library!

A Friday night spent reading picture books.  
Welcome by Barroux is a new favorite!

Instagram pics of grandson, Teddy,
and Stefi's words:  
"At least once a day I notice Teddy has gotten really quiet and I inevitably find him in his room, sorting through his books
until he finds his beloved lion book.  He then sits quietly
and "reads" to himself for a few minutes."

Friday afternoon symphony with husband.  
We call it the "gray hair special."

 An Instagram pic from Texas friend, Karen, of a fountain at the National Museum of African American History with this inscription:  "We are determined . . . to work and fight until justice runs down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream."

    So much to celebrate. But that "Handsome" says so much all by itself. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Well, I love each part, about those grand-boys and the books (I have that same gray cart!) and that last quote is needed! Thanks, Ramona, enjoy your blue sky!

  3. Ramona, I love each one of your celebrations, laughed at the gray hair special, wondered at the flowers growing, and swooned over Teddy reading.

  4. Oh, those baby pictures! I love!!! And Teddy and the lion book and reading. Melts my heart. Thanks for sharing in your joys and celebrations this week, Ramona!

  5. I was hoping that pictures of your precious new grandchild would be in this post. Such a wonderful collaboration of writing and photographs. Thanks!

  6. Books + grandchildren = perfect combination :) Love seeing the photos thanks for sharing.

  10. Ahh, love to catch those moments of reading to themselves at such an early age!

  11. Your grand baby is adorable. Today we have blue sky. Yesterday rain and lots of it. I need to get back into the weekly celebrate post.
