It's been very spring like here for a few weeks, with lots of flowers blooming.

March 1

National Pig Day
Peanut Butter Lover's Day

I won't have the opportunity to pet or interact with a pig today, but I'll will be celebrating by eating some peanut butter. I may not have plain peanut butter, but I will eat some Butterfingers eggs that I bought on sale a few days ago.

Pigging out on peanut butter candies sounds like a fun time but I should restrain myself and try to lose a few pounds before I see the doc on Friday.

I'm not sure how much weight you could lose in 2 days, so I say go ahead and have some peanut butter candy.

Old Stuff Day

When asking someone "What's new?" or "What's happening?", how often do you hear "Nothing really, same old stuff".

Well, today, is Old Stuff Day, in recognition of this all too common response. It is suggestive of a boring time period, or a boring life style. ....how sad.

Old Stuff Day is not a day to do the same old stuff. Rather, it's a time to recognize the boring nature of your daily routine, and make some exciting changes. Find new and different activities, projects, and hobbies. Attend an event. Do something, anything, different. You will be glad that you did!

"Old stuff" is what I expect to find at yard sales when the weather gets just a little bit nicer...

"Old Stuff" is just about every item in my house.

National Anthem Day
IMO, anyone who cannot stand for five minutes should not be playing football. Then again, I beleive he has the right to play but why should anyone pay him with U.S. dollars?

None are near me, but I just saw the dentist in January, and as far as I know, I don't need to see one now. Thank goodness.

I saw that one of the clinics is in Easton, PA. That's where the woman was from who runs the Rabbit Sanctuary where I volunteer.

I also saw my dentist in January but it was not free and I do not have dental insurance (free would be something to smile about but I probably would not enjoy the waiting rooms in those clinics).
I didn't accomplish much today (no hugs) but the girl scout cookies that I was looking for last weekend are now in my pantry.
