Good Morning and Welcome to Monday. Amazing to me how fast it rolls around sometimes. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I actually got some relaxation time, got a few things done around the house and had a lunch date with hubby yesterday. It’s going to be a great week! We just have to make up our minds that it will be . . . and it will!
Babbling Day – Today is the day for those of us who LOVE to talk. Growing up my Dad used to call me Motor Mouth – I guess that was his way of saying I talked too much in as nice a way as he could. There are some people who take talking too much to a new level, they don’t just talk a lot, much of what they say is pure gibberish, and can turn a simple sentence into an endless dissertation. By the way, here is a new word for you – Blatherskite. A Blatherskite is a person who babbles!
Count Your Buttons Day – Aren’t you excited? Today is Count Your Buttons Day! And if you’re like me then you have a great big question mark hanging out over your head while you wonder WHY? Well, I can’t answer that. I’m not even sure anyone can. We have a wacky holiday with absolutely no history at all to define it for what it is. So how would you celebrate this day? Well, I guess you can count your buttons.
Information Overload Day – Mute your phone, don’t check your email every single time the pop-up box appears on your computer screen, and here’s a concept, pick up the phone if you need something done quickly. Today is Information Overload Awareness Day. Technology and Efficiency experts are urging people to take stock of how the always increasing flood of digital data is slowing down their personal and professional lives. Between emails, text messaging, social-networking sites like Facebook and good old fashioned web-surfing, the amount of information at our fingertips each day can be overwhelming. It is both a blessing and a curse, because it is wonderful to be able to communicate to anyone, anywhere in the world in seconds, but it also keeps us plugged in 24/7 and that can be emotionally and mentally overwhelming. A good idea is to unplug when you get home. Turn off the phone and spend at least some time away from the computer and just let your mind relax.
Food Celebration of the Day –
National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day – Today we celebrate a delicious Fall dessert. In October, pumpkins are literally glowing. So, why not put two of your favorites together…..pumpkins and cheesecake!? They make a great dessert. Its easy to enjoy this special day. Go to a cheesecake store or bakery, and buy a pumpkin cheesecake. Or, better yet, make a homemade pumpkin cheesecake.

Well, it’s a good day with good things to celebrate – I admit that I omitted a couple – Reptile Day being one of them. I just don’t like them, so I didn’t want to write about them! Yuck! Pumpkin Cheesecake though? Oh yes, I can definitely write about that! Have a wonderful Monday – God Bless You and I’ll see you tomorrow!
