Celebrating some small things

It's been three weeks since I posted a CTST and then it was very hot. Today I went to town in my boots, because it's chucked it down with rain all day and the temperature has dropped accordingly. Mind you, the rain is my first cause for celebration, because my poor allotment is starting to look a bit droopy.

Other things worthy of note today are:

* Having had my creative side prodded by the poetry challenge set by friend Tricia on Monday

* The launch tomorrow of my friend Rachel's bookshop venture 'Not Just Words', which opens with a fundraising day of music in aid of our local hospice

* My sensible mother (she knows why)

Have a good weekend, folks.

Celebrate the Small Things  is a blog hop. Visit Lexa's Blog for the rules, and then post every Friday about something you're grateful  for that week. Originated by VikLit) and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits Blog  


  1. Hope all goes well at the opening of the bookshop - love that idea!

    1. The event raised nearly £500, which was a brilliant effort by all those involved.

  2. The rain sounds very refreshing after so much heat. Yay for poetry challenges, bookshop launch, and a smart mother. :)

    Smashwords' tax pmt is killing me too. I only net 25% from anything I sell because of Smashwords 10% fee, Paypal 33% fee, and the damned US gov't taking 30%.

    1. I'm very pleased with my decision not to go with my friends to a festival at the weekend. They all got soaked.

    1. Yes, but if we could have it a bit warmer...
