Go to the Park Day
When was the last time
you spent a quiet moment
just doing nothing
– just sitting and looking at the sea,
or watching the wind
blowing the tree limbs,
or waves rippling on a pond,
a flickering candle or children
playing in the park?
~ Ralph Marston
Today is also Butterscotch Pudding Day and Slimey’s birthday (from Sesame Street). Not to gross you out, but do you think there’s connection?
Other birthdays for today include Twiggy (1946) and Jimmy Fallon (1974). Pudding, anyone? perhaps in a park.
Happy Spouse Appreciation Day. A “toast” to the smiley couple! Just days ago it was Wife Appreciation Day. I guess that means I’ve had my turn, so today I’ll be pamperer not the pamper-ee.
Here is a favorite quote about marriage (to keep in mind as you appreciate your spouse): The real act of marriage takes place in the heart. It’s a choice you make – not just on your wedding day, but over and over again – and that choice is reflected in the way you treat each other.~ Barbara de Angelis This quote applies to all aspects of life. We make choices a thousand times a day–life doesn’t just happen. We create our life by the choices we make.
It’s Masonry Day over on our September calendar of a month full of Smiley Silliness where all the Smileys different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
