Hats, Hats, Hats . . .

Sep 15th
This morning sure didn’t turn out the way I’d thought it would.  I felt just fine when I went to bed, but woke up around 1 a.m. very sick.  I don’t know if it is the flu or food poisoning, but either way it’s awful.  I can’t keep even ginger ale and soda crackers down, go from hot to cold and hot again, and I feel as weak as a young kitten.  I’m covered in peppermint essential oils to try to combat the nausea, and getting ready to go back to sleep.  I just wanted to check in with everyone and get you started on the celebrations.

Make a Hat Day – What a wonderful and fun celebration!  Today is a day set up to design, make and wear a fun hat!  It’s always fun to make a hat so maybe we should get started!   This is a popular one with pre-school, kindergarten and grade school teachers AND students.  Early in the new school year, teachers look for fun and interesting projects to break up the classroom routine, and let the kids use their creativity in making a hat that suits their mood.  Once you make your hat, take a picture of yourself in it!  It’ll be fun! 

Felt Hat Day –  Well, this one fall on a good day – since it’s Make a Hat Day too, but this isn’t about making your own hats as much as it is wearing Felt Hats.  On this day men traditionally wear a felt hat.  Back in the early to mid 1900s, hats were very popular and worn by both men and women.  It was stylish.  At that time, felt was a common material for men’s hats.  With cooler fall weather coming the men went to the closet and dusted off their felt hats and began to wear them once more.  Celebrating this one is easy – just wear a felt hat.  Doesn’t matter what the style is, as long as it is made of felt! 

8-Track Tape Day – Eight Track Tape Day is a day to bring back memories of the sixties and seventies.  Does anyone still have 8-track tapes and players? If you do, I’d love to hear from you!  Years ago I remember my ex-father-in-law still had an 8-track player in his truck, and he played OLD western tapes.  Honestly, I think he’s the only person I have ever known who actually used one of them! How many kids today would even KNOW what one of those is?   I know kids who don’t even know what cassette players are! 

Food Celebration of the Day

National Linguine Day  –  Translated as “little tongues,” these flat noodles pair well with seafood and sauce, but dessert?  I’ve never had a pasta dessert! May be something worth looking into! 

Ooooh, last night when I started this, the linguine looked delicious.  Today it makes me want to lose what little I have actually managed to keep down. I keep telling myself that soda crackers and ginger ale are my friends.  I may not be having an awesome Monday, but you certainly can!  Celebrate today for me by wearing a felt hat, or making a hat of your own!  God Bless You and I’ll see you tomorrow!
