Little Things: February Float

Posted in Blog, Little Things | 4 comments


Sitting in my living room with the windows wide open this February First I decided that a Root Beer Float would make a mighty fine treat.  Did I wait for the kids to wake up from their naps?


Did I selfishly indulge all by myself?


Sometimes a little thing like an afternoon treat, enjoyed in silence, can change the tone of the rest of your day.


It appears that the idea of posting little things I have accomplished each day has turned into more of a gratitude journal….I think I’m okay with that.  Taking the time to capture the moment in a photo…and then share it…makes its impact on my day more significant.  Besides, taking a picture of a root beer float is much more interesting than the 5 loads of laundry I did….. and if I waited to take a picture of ALL five loads…they probably wouldn’t all get put away, anyway…


  1. This sounds really good. Even though I really don’t even like Root Beer…

  2. You know… I’m not a huge root beer fan myself…. but there is something about the occasional root beer float…mmmm.

  3. oh that looks perfect, I wish I wasnt sick and have one right now!

  4. Yum! I haven’t had a root beer float in ages, but that sounds fantastic! I love that your “little things accomplished” turn into journals of gratitude. I think that’s entirely appropriate. :) I am reading a book right now called One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp in which she dared herself to write down a thousand things she was thankful for. It’s a great read and a good reminder to take into account all of the little moments in a day that come together to equal all of the blessings we really have. These same blessings tend to be the things we (*I*) take for granted.
