Flecks #22

As in flecks of reflection from the week: what I'm learning and celebrating.

It's been a bit crazy this week. On one hand, I got through a lot of errands and appointments. On the other, I got very little work done, hardly any writing, and few photographs. Trade-offs, I suppose.

Things I learned this week:



  • It's important to properly lock up the ducks at night. On Wednesday night, I left a circular fence around the opening of their pen. When I went to bed they were still in the kiddie pool. In the morning they were gone presumably where the fence had moved away from their pen. I drove through the neighborhood looking for them and by the farm behind our house, but couldn't find them. Thankfully they came back that evening all on their own. I fed them and locked them up properly to keep them safe from predators.

  • Making eye contact with a three-year-old while they excitedly tell you something is a surefire way to make you smile.

  • Time together is good (and necessary).

  • Time alone is also good (and necessary).


Things I'm celebrating this week:



  • The ducks came back!

  • Time with my family.

  • Getting stuff done. It was spring break here, and I had scheduled the doctor, dentist, and orthodontist all for this week. Check, check, and check. I still managed all the regular errands, too. Phew!

  • Success.

  • Learning more about myself (it's an ongoing process, I think).

  • Plenty of outside time.


Your turn:


What did you learn this week? What are you celebrating? Leave a comment and I'll share a "Woohoo!"
