Celebrate Good Times, Come On! - 12/28

Each Saturday  Ruth Ayres invites us to share and celebrate events from our week. Looking for small celebrations has certainly improved my outlook on my week. For that, I am certainly grateful to Ruth and to all of you who choose to celebrate with us.

I have enjoyed spending Christmas with family.  Ending the Christmas season and anticipating a new year is certainly a celebration.  We have one more family event tonight, and I am looking forward to spending time with my sister and my nephew from Tennessee.  

This week I am celebrating nothing...

Have you ever thought about when you have many things to do, you get many things done?

Have you ever wondered why you get nothing done when you have nothing to do?

That has been my last few days.  I have had no deadlines, no to-do list, no demands.  So I have just done nothing...and it has been deliriously delightful.

Slept in
No alarm clock
Stayed in my pajamas 
until whenever
Took a shower...whenever
One day...did not even take a shower!
Wore sweats
No make-up
Read many books
Read many tweets
Wrote many words
Ate many cookies
Too many cookies
Stayed up late

Today I celebrate nothing!

I hope each of you get a chance to celebrate "nothing" during your break!  For me, my to-do list starts Monday!  Have a great week!


  1. Doing nothing is highly underrated. I have embraced it for the past week and will continue to in the upcoming days.

  2. I have had a few "nothing" days too and love them. They are excellent!

  3. So far, no 'nothing' days, but soon! Love that you are enjoying them, Leigh Anne. I hope for a snowy day and to stay home and to read and 'nothing else'! Thanks for the reminder!

  4. Nothing is something! Many of us have trouble with nothing. Nothing and what it means is something to entertain from time to time. I think it might be good for the soul. I love that you chose this to celebrate.

  5. Ha! GREAT way to put it - I love celebrating "nothing" too! :-)

  6. We all need nothing days! Great thing to celebrate. Happy New Year!

  7. Do nothing days rock Leigh this idea of celebrating nothing. Very sweet indeed. Enjoy a few more days of celebrating nothing-it will end too quickly I fear.

  8. Cheers to the "nothing" that means being the master of your time and choosing to do what you like e.g. reading and eating cookies. I hope that you will get more days like this next year.

  9. Wonderful! I hope I will have at least one or two days of "nothing" after my visitors leave. I have some books in mind, and maybe a show or two to watch on Hulu.

  10. Isn't celebrating nothing the bomb? I've been on the same "nothingness" journey (especially the eating too many cookies part) and it's been heavenly! Enjoy every minute!! Happy New Year.

  11. I love your celebrating nothing post! Your deliriously delightful description of no deadlines, no to-do list, & no demands leaves me envious. Looking forward to some time to celebrate nothing during the upcoming week!

  12. I love your celebration. Who knew doing nothing could be so fabulous!

    I struggle with sitting still and knowing what to do with myself when there is no lesson to plan or assignment to grade. My friends and family remind me to enjoy it while I can.

    I had some similar days- I have to admit I skipped a shower myself :) and I cannot stop eating cookies.

    Hope you have a wonderful New Year.
