Coming Up This Week…January 20-26, 2013

Why does it seem that Monday to Wednesday goes by very slowly, Wednesday to Friday night takes forever yet Friday night to Sunday is passes like nothing more than a blink of an eye?  You would think that work days would fly since you have something to do, it doesn’t seem fair that lazy weekends come to an end way to quickly.

But it is Sunday and once again time for “Coming Up This Week….”  My niece Chantell will love that Today is Penguin Awareness Day, she loves everything penguins.  Take some time today to learn about penguins, perhaps a quick trip to the zoo would be in order to visit the penguin exhibit to say hello.  We have the grandparent/grandchildren annual pass so going to the zoo for a quick visit today would be easy except for the fact that it’s so windy here today we’d be blown over.

Everyone knows Martin Luther King Day is on Monday.  It’s a day to honor this American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.   Dr. King is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience.

Yummy days this week are Blonde Brownie Day and Pie Day make something sweet to celebrate.  Not a huge fan of buttercrunch, although every now and then I like to pop one of those fun size Butterfinger’s, does that count?  I was surprised that buttercrunch wasn’t just a candy.  There is ice cream, shortbread, pie and salad…..who knew??  Certainly not me!

Days I think are kind of sweet and cute are National Hugging Day, make sure you hug someone and of course Spouse’s Day.   I just might have to make Walt something special next Saturday for Spouse’s Day.  There is also a Compliment Day, maybe this day would be the perfect opportunity to say something nice to someone, especially someone you might be at odds with, what a great way to break the ice.

Of course there are a few other silly days in the mix so as always be creative this week and have a little fun!!
