Special delivery plus GRAND Social No. 86 link party for grandparents

It's often the little things that make you smile. Yesterday, for me, it was the delivery of my newspaper.

Like much of the country, it's been cold and snowy in Colorado (though admittedly not as snowy as many spots farther east). My newspaper is usually thrown from the delivery person's vehicle into my driveway, meaning I must walk a ways to get it. Yesterday, though, it arrived right at my doorstep — in spectacular style:

Such a perfect toss and spin, sending it down the sidewalk to settle at my porch step. The serendipitous slide kept me from heading out too far into the cold and, more importantly, started my Sunday with a smile.

Similarly, I hope this week's GRAND Social No. 86 starts your week with a smile. Thank you for joining me. I look forward to your links.

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:

  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
