Celebrate the Small Things: Health and Welfare

As part of my new initiative for my blog posts, I have joined VikLit's Celebrate the Small Things - something to post on Fridays.

I may post something about writing, something personal, something random or even all the above.

Or if I have a REALLY off week, I might just post a photo. ;)
  • I had my first medical appointment in Ecuador, visiting a dermatologist to check out some spots. Everything was fine, you can read more about it (and see some photos) here.

    This actually was a last week thing but wanted to mention it because a good friend was just diagnosed with melanoma. I am a blue eyed brunette that burns easily and got many a sunburn when I was young as well as spent a lot of time without sunscreen while living in Florida for a lot of 1965-1985. Please, take care of your skin and use your sunscreen (or better yet, cover up).
     
  • I find myself sharing a lot of positive quotes on Facebook and have now started to save some of them for Instagram. I find many are using Instagram as much (or more) for that purpose rather than just snapping photos. Because you have to be on the lookout against getting a tablet or smartphone snatched, I don't take time to put things up when I take them. [I am FroggiDonna on Instagram]
     
  • Hubby's youngest is expecting her first next week and he is flying back to the US on Sunday to be there. She has done exceptionally well during her pregnancy and I am on pins and needles to meet baby Waverly on Facetime/Skype. WOOT!
     
  • Oh yeah, and one writing related thing - June I start working on book three in my Klondike Mystery series. Wish me luck, been 18 months since I finished book three, Barely a Spark. Going to take a little bit to get back into the swing of it!

That is a pocket full of celebrations that you've listed, A grandchild due in the family, NOT being diagnosed with Melanoma (warning taken) and starting that third book (the first two sound pretty interesting, and I like what ties them together...
