HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!  Today is the birthday of the best mother in the world!  And it’s the first time we won’t be spending it together because she and Dad are heading off for a weekend together.  I don’t begrudge them the time alone, but I sure am envious!  I’m sure they’ll have a lovely time and come home rested and happy.    

National Bike to Work Day – I really love living away from town, but times like today it would be nice to live a little closer to work.  Today is National Bike to Work Day and is a great opportunity to get some exercise, and to save gas. And of course saving gas these days is pretty important!  With these prices we could really save by biking!  Unfortunately I live 21 miles from work and there just isn’t the time to get there without leaving for work hours early, even if I could ride that far without keeling over.  It would be wonderful though.  If you have the opportunity to save some fuel, consider this option!   

Today is Pack Rat Day. Hi.  My name is Karina and I am a pack rat.  I admit it.  Your turn . . . are you a pack rat too?  You might as well fess up that you have a lot of “stuff” that you just can’t bear to part with and celebrate today!  It’s really easy to let things pile up.  Everything we acquire along the road of life has some value to use, or perhaps some sentimental attachment.  Making the decision to discard something can be really difficult!  You may need it some day!  Thing is though, that there is a fine line between collecting and being a pack rat and being a hoarder.  You don’t want to cross that line or you’ll find yourself on one of those crazy shows where we all feel true horror at what we are seeing!  Getting organized can help with that of course, and really deciding to keep just the stuff that is truly good, and toss the miscellaneous we really know we’ll never, ever need.  If it saves you from being the star of that show, it’s worth it!    

Food Celebrations of the Day

National Cherry Cobbler Day – The U.S. grows about 370 million pounds of sweet cherries each year — of that annual harvest, 175 million pounds are packaged into frozen, canned or maraschino cherries. That’s a LOT of cherries!  Sounds like a delicious way to end the work week, doesn’t it?

It’s Friday! We made it through another week, and here we are again at the weekend, celebrating little things that make us smile.  Have a wonderful day, God Bless You and I’ll see you tomorrow!
