Good Morning! We survived the night, and as of the time I was writing this we were safe and snug, in spite of the wind that was whipping through the trees outside. I started feeling quite a bit better by the end of the day, and slept well. The wind died down significantly by the time we went to bed last night, so peaceful sleep was possible! Looks like life will actually return to normal today! The sun is out, the sky is blue and I can see that I have a LOT to do to make up for being such a slug on the couch yesterday.
What are we celebrating today?
Do a Grouch a Favor today. If you do it could make the world a better place! Especially for the grouch! We’ve all been a grouch at one time or another, and we all know people who seem to be grouches all of the time. It’s part of their very nature! There are also some who are just grouches occasionally, or are influenced by things going on in their lives, lack of sleep, the weather, or other things. Some are good at covering up being grouchy, but I’m betting they will still need to be cheered up. Take a look around for someone who is grouchy today and do something nice for them to make them feel better. The more grouches who are cheered up today, the better!
This Day In History –
1937 – Nylon is patented. But it won’t become popular for a few more decades.
1948 – NBC TV begins it’s first nightly newscast.
Food Celebration of the Day –
National Almond Day – Good for your heart. Good for your waistline. Good for your skin. What can’t almonds do? With a history that dates back to ancient times, it’s no wonder this miraculous little tree fruit is so widely used and revered. It’s also no wonder that this ultimate super food has its very own day of honor. Almonds’ fruity-woodsy aroma and toasty nuttiness make them a natural fit for the baker’s pantry, but they also give depth (and sometimes a little crunch!) to savory dishes, too.
We were slightly short of celebrations today, but cheering up grouchy people can take up quite a bit of time. There probably wouldn’t have been enough daylight in our schedules to do much more than that, and eating some delicious almonds of course. God Bless You and I’ll see you tomorrow!
