September 16th

Hello everyone. I hope that you are finding this Sunday a wonderful day.

The Sun is shining but the breeze is picking up. Fall is in the air.

However, today is a day to have not a care.

The Lord gave me a day to rest,

so my body through the week could do its best.

I shall take his advise today,

I will relax on this beautiful Sunday.

I have nothing that I need to do,

I will be content staying at home with you.

For this is where I want to be,

Letting my spirit to be free.

Everything else can wait till tomorrow,

There is nothing I need to borrow.

I have my family here with me,

God has provided enough you see.

Today is not a day for work,

I don’t have to feel like my duties I shirk.

Today is my day to say Thank you Lord,

I have enough there is no need to horde.

So on this day I will relax with you,

I will enjoy the wonderful view.

16 National Guacamole Day

National Guacamole Day

Today is National Guacamole Day! We all know and love guacamole as a party snack, but there’s more to guacamole than meets the eye. Guacamole is made from avocados, which are packed with more than twenty vitamins, contain “good fats” that reduce cholesterol, can help fight cancer, and can be used as a substitute for butter or shortening in baking.

You can purchase pre-made guacamole at your local supermarket or buy some ripe avocados to make your own. Cinco de Mayo, Fourth of July, Super Bowl Sunday, and Easter each account for approximately five percent of annual avocado sales. Have no fear, avocado trees produce up to 400 fruits a year so there should be plenty to go around. Happy National Guacamole Day!
