February 17th

Hello everyone. It’s been a busy week and a busy day. I’ve been out of my house more in the last three days then I have in the last six months. 🙂

Went to the accountant today and took tax papers in to be prepared.

Visited the local book store to find out they have a new manager and are starting a section for local authors. Showed her my books and left my information. Yippee…..

Then visited the local library and left my book information with them… another yippee………..

Made it to pay bills.

Got tired and decided I’d better go home before I dropped. LOL 🙂

It’s a beautiful day today. The sun is shining and the weather is wonderful but I’m afraid it isn’t going to last.

However, it’s a wonderful day for  Random Acts of Kindness Day

Random Acts of Kindness Day is the name of an unofficial holiday increasingly celebrated around the world by localities or organizations, or nationwide, in order to encourage acts of kindness. The original founder of Random Acts of Kindness Day is unknown.[citation needed].

The holiday is celebrated annually in the United States on February 17 and in New Zealand on September 1.[1] In New Zealand, RAK day began at a national level in 2005[2] by Josh de Jong, Marshall Gray, Megan Singleton and Reuben Gwyn. It is not a holiday, rather a national day where the entire country is challenged to do something kind to a friend or stranger for no reason at all.

We have discussed this some before but let’s make a list today.

1. Help a neighbor

2. Rake leaves for an elderly person or help them take garbage out

3. Send a card to a friend

4. Buy a cup of coffee for a stranger or a fresh drink

5. Give a good book that you’ve read to another person

6. Give a utility worker or delivery man bottled water or fruit

7. Make a meal for someone

8. Carry someones groceries for them

14. Donate food to your local food center

With our economy as difficult as it is we are in a time where simple acts of kindness are greatly appreciated. It is a time when we should pass forward any kindness that we have received in our own lives.

I am very thankful for everything and everyone that is involved in my life.

I am going to  pass it forward when ever I can.

National Cabbage Day

I could not find why today is celebrated as National Cabbage Day but numerous sites seem to be in agreement on that fact.

There are many recipes on how to cook Cabbage. However, I choose to post an unusual site that not only tells you how to cook cabbage but why and the medical benefits from Cabbage.

For other information on cabbage and recipes just type National Cabbage Day and do a search and it will take you where you want to go be it recipes or more information.

Well I am going to enjoy the rest of my day and I hope everyone else will do the same.

Have a wonderful weekend. Watch the weather reports as snow is expected in some areas over the weekend. Until next time 🙂
