Oatmeal Cookie Day
The prayers we weave
into the matching of socks,
the stirring of oatmeal,
the reading of stories,
they survive fire.”
~ Ann Voskamp
If you don’t like oatmeal cookies, you can also chow down on Animal Cookies today. A 2 cookie day, is my kind of day.
Today we say happy birthday to Conan O’Brien (1963). Scheesh, I didn’t realize he was that old. He’s looking pretty darned good.
Over on a Month of Smiley Silliness it’s Eat Outdoors Day with Restaurant Patio Heater Smiley. So here’s a little poem about a picnic:
We brought a rug for sitting on, Our lunch was in a box.
The sun was warm. We didn’t wear, our hats, or shoes, or socks.
~ Dorothy Aldis
It’s also National Golf Day and Wear Your PJs Day. Perhaps today we’ll be seeing lots of people having picnics at the golf course, wearing their jimmies while eating oatmeal cookies and Animal Crackers.
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here.
