Celebrate This Week 1.10.15
It's always good to end the week on a positive note. Sometimes we concentrate on the negatives. We have a choice. Choose positive. Choose to celebrate. I will be joining Ruth Ayres and her weekly link-up, Celebrate This Week. Check out all the other celebrations HERE
Small Celebration Saturday!
1. I just finished running 11 miles.
We have subzero temperatures and ice on the roads, which means I was inside. Running around and around on a track. For 11 miles. It's not fun. But it's done and I celebrate that!
2. 2015 published books!
My Tuesday book purchases dwindled down in November and December. Not as many books came out. This Tuesday was the first Tuesday of 2015 and with it brought many book birthdays!
3. Cold Days = Reading
We had 2 "cold days" this week. Freezing temperatures meant no school. Since this was the first week off after break, I wasn't really ready for days off yet. But, living in the moment, and not worrying about those extra days tacked on to the end of the school year... I enjoyed it by staying under blankets and reading. My daughter and I read together, played some games and even did some writing!
4. Reading Notebooks
I started my 2015 Reading Notebook. I keep track of my reading for the year in it. I know Goodreads does that too, but there is something satisfying about writing things down. I also keep track of book events throughout the year in it - the ALA awards, my #bookaday lists, writing ideas, mentor texts.
Thank good ness for chapstick this time of year!!! I think I apply it several times every hour. Why is everything so dry?
Hope you found something to celebrate this week!
