April 4th

HELLO WORLD!!! Been sitting here waiting for the Doctor’s office to call and got tired of waiting so I called them. Report came back NO CANCER!!!! I guess I’m just weird. Still don’t know what it is but I’ll take the NO CANCER REPORT and run.

It’s surprising how fast things happen in my life. One minute I have a normal routine and in a five-minute period everything changes. That happened with the doctors visit.

It also happened yesterday when I got up to bring the mail in. I normally let my son do it and ignore the mail as much as I possibly can because I know there are more bills than income.

However, yesterday was different. I took a few minutes to sit down and read the weekly mailer. It’s a small newspaper but homey. All of a sudden I saw in the ads Craft Fair on Saturday need vendors. Oh my, what short notice. I don’t have the booth money it’s before payday. But I called anyway. They were willing to wait until my payday for the booth money. That’s an advantage of living in a small hometown atmosphere even though I’m not from here.

Now I am doing a book signing on Saturday from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm at the Rupert Civic Gym in Rupert, Idaho.

So I will be spending all day tomorrow getting everything ready to set up.

The hardest thing will be getting out of the house that early in the morning. I am not a morning person as it is. Oh well I can come home and take a nap before dinner.

So if you are in the Rupert area please come and see me. I would love to see as many people as possible.

Well the sun was out this morning but guess what. The horrible winds are whipping through here now so I’d better get a crackin’.

National Days

 

April 4th is National Start Walking day. The idea is to get everyone out and get a little exercise.

Thoughts on National Walking Day

 Exercising for 30 minutes every day helps reduce the risk of heart disease, and that’s the principle behind the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day on April 4th. On the website to promote the day, the organization lists many of walking’s physical and mental benefits. We read there that walking can help improve blood pressure, reduce the risk of some cancers, lower the risk of stroke, maintain a healthy body weight, and enhance mental outlook. The association encourages people who are adverse to walking alone to seek out a friend, join a walking club, or invite along a “furry friend.” Many walkers know the furry friend to be the most grateful of companions.http://www.walkingoffthebigapple.com/

April 4th, 2012, is Walk Around Things Day, Tell a Lie Day, Hug a Newsman Day, World Rat Day, Bonza Bottler Day, International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action, Victims of Violence Wholly Day, School Librarian Day, Paraprofessional Appreciation Day, National Day of Hope, Independence Day (Senegal), National Chicken Cordon Bleu Day, and Chocolate Milk Powder Day.   

Walk Around Things Day is a good time to avoid tricky situations, unwelcome conversations, and holes in the floor. Walk tall, walk proud!

If there’s a difficult person you can’t walk around today, keep in mind it’s Tell a Lie Day. Take advantage of this “permission” to be less than forthcoming.

On Hug a Newsman Day, don’t violate your favorite journalist’s space! A simple letter of admiration or a kind word will suffice!

Show some appreciation for the professional who helps you find the coolest books in school on School Librarian Day.

Bonza Bottler Day comes once a month, when the month and date are represented by the same number. Celebrate on 4/4!

National Cordon Bleu Day

It’s National Cordon Bleu Day! Did you know that “cordon bleu” means “blue ribbon” in French? In the 1500s, the Order of the Knights of the Holy Spirit became known as “Les Cordon Bleus.” The knights used a blue ribbon to hang their talisman, and eventually the term became associated with distinction and honor. Today, we still award blue ribbons for excellence!

In the culinary world, cordon bleu is a savory roulade dish made with chicken (or veal), ham, and Swiss cheese. Contrary to popular belief, chicken cordon bleu did not originate at Le Cordon Bleu culinary arts school. As with most dishes, it evolved over time and first appeared in America during the 1960s.

To celebrate National Cordon Bleu Day, cook up some delicious chicken cordon bleu for your family to enjoy tonight! Bon appétit!

So whether you go and take a walk, walk around people, Tell a little lie to make someone feel better, pick out a book at the library and make your Librarian feel special you can have a wonderful day and there is nothing better at the end of a day than a great meal like Cordon Belu. I wish you all a happy day and until next time 🙂
