Celebrate the small things, 20 January

This is a politics free post!

Today I'm celebrating what has been a pretty good week. I've done lots of editorial work and writing, enjoyed a fair bit of music-based activity and gone for a little walk every day. More specifically,  though, I'm celebrating the extraordinary courage of a couple of my yoga students who are facing difficult times with grace.

On a more mundane level, while I failed again to get a decent photo of the red kite that was circling tantalisingly close to my garden yesterday, I did get of shot of this fine fellow, who obliged by landing on next door's extension roof.

Best of all, I have nothing planned for this weekend: bliss!

Join the celebration: share your news on the bloghop Celebrate the Small Things  hosted by  Lexa's Blog.

  2. Yes we get red kites here but I don't think I'll ever get a good photo of one - love your heron - they do look funny when perched on a roof, don't they? Have a restful weekend - Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

    1. Herons are just ungainly, whether on the ground or in the air. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Congrats on the editing and writing progress, all your activities and the great pic of the heron (is it a heron?). I hope your yoga students find respite from the bad things in their lives. Have a lovely and quiet weekend!

    1. I enjoy the discipline of this bloghop, Rosemary, because sometimes I don't think anything good has happened all week and then I realise it has. :-)
