Coming Up This Week….February 17 – 23, 2013

Funny Holidays

Happy Sunday everyone!!  Three envelope pot roast is in the slow cooker, we’re going to have a great Sunday here.

Not only is it amazing that this weekend got here in the blink of an eye, it’s even more amazing that half of the month is half over.  Counting those days down till spring….especially after yesterday, the Michigan State Police said that there were over 200 car accidents due to white out conditions that came and went Saturday afternoon.  A normal 40 minute ride for Walt from his dentist to home took almost 2 hours, every freeway he tried to get on was either closed due to multiple car pile ups OR there were bad accidents along the way that slowed things down.

But today is Sunday and it’s time for “Coming Up This Week…”   and today is Random Acts of Kindness Day.  It doesn’t have to be much, it doesn’t have to be about money, it can be as simple as holding the door for someone at the store, letting a car merge in front of you.  It can be as simple as a smile or a hello, because you never know, you may cross paths with someone who is having a bad day and your smile just might brighten their day just little or take their mind off their problems for a minute or two.  Today is also “Stuffed Cabbage Day” I guess I should have waited and made Walt stuffed cabbage today instead of last week.  Oh well he did enjoy them so it all works out.

This week we have “President’s Day,” and what I think might just be the weirdest day I’ve ever heard of, “Hoodie Hoo Day.”  Hoodie Hoo Day is supposedly a day when people go outside at noon, wave their hands and arms above their heads and chant “Hoodie Hoo” in an effort to drive winter out and welcome spring.  You know, I have to say I might just have to give this one a try.  I doubt that there is anyone who wants spring to arrive more than me, I’m all in for anything that might bring it home a little sooner.

We have “Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day,” “Love Your Pet Day” and “Walking The Dog Day” this week, I’ll have to make sure Joshua knows about those especially since he has two dogs and is now the proud owner of two hamsters (as grandma loving refers to as rodents).  They don’t have names yet, they are that new….oh I love that boy when it comes to animals he has a heart of gold.

My two food favorite days this week will be “Cherry Pie Day” and Banana Bread Day.  I already have recipes picked out to make in honor of those two days.  Of course “Drink Wine Day” will be celebrated here as well!

This is going to be a great week!  As always lots of fun and interesting days….use your imagination, be creative and have fun!
