Celebrate Little Victories - the Oscars, Shrove Tuesday, and Lady Jane's Salon/Silver Spring

Aloha!   It's been some time since we celebrated little victories ... so let's get to it!

Last Saturday, I enjoyed several laps around Fort Meade's Burba Lake (link) with my buddy.   We watched the Canadian geese swim through the melting ice and lily pads.       

On Sunday, I watched the Oscars while I chatted with another buddy in California ... she knows more about movies, celebrities, and dresses.   I thought the winners' speeches were heartfelt.

My son's scout troop hosted a Pancake Dinner on Shrove Tuesday for their sponsoring church.   Yum, yum!


I registered for Lori Foster's Reader Author Get Together (link) - I am sharing a room with Rue Allyn (link).   I also connected with Elizabeth Langston - we'll be roomies at the RWA Annual Conference (link).   

Saturday night, I am attending Lady Jane's Salon/Silver Spring (link) with Anne Barton, Robin Covington, Carlene Flores, Kimberly Kincaid, and Tracey Livesay.    

Do you have any little victories to celebrate?

  1. I've been having headaches, and I've been in search of a good pillow. I'm on my 5th one, though the down pillows I tried last night were pretty good. Good news is that I didn't have a headache today. Yay! I'm celebrating that!

  2. I am getting ready for Winter, so today I started to stock up the pantry. It's a good start.

  3. It was in the 50's yesterday and we went for a lovely bike ride!!

  4. It sounds like you had a great week.
    I have made a conscious effort to cook healthier meals for my family. :)

  5. I love attending my Lady Jane's Salon! Have a good weekend.

  6. Nothing here except a 5 foot snow pile on my boulevard.

  7. I'm so excited that we're going to room at Nationals. And tell Anne Barton that I said hi... she is one of my "Ruby Sisters."

  8. I celebrated my birthday yesterday and my daughter sent me 5 boxes of my favorite Girl Scout cookie (Thin Mints) - what a treat! I put 4 boxes in the freezer and plan to totally enjoy one box at work today. :)

  9. I bowled a 205 game in bowling :)

  10. Pancake dinner sounds really good, I love pancakes.

    I am really happy, I just found out my dad doesn't have a tumor on his retina. It was something that we don't have to worry about because he was born with the abnormality and it's never bothered him. Good news for us this week.

  11. Sounds like you had fun
    not really

  12. We went to Texas and discovered we had no plane reservation, but we made it home. Quite a bit poorer I might add.
