Dark Chocolate Day
All you need is love.
But a little chocolate
now and then doesn’t hurt.
~ Charles Schultz
That’s Chocolate Stained Hand Towel Smiley.
Over on a month full of Smiley Silliness it’s International Tongue Twister Day. I was never any good at these, yet felt they were good fun. You don’t have to be good at something to have fun. So for instance no more saying, “I can’t dance.” Go on. Get up and awkwardly move your body to the beat (or not). Dancing is fun! And you guessed it, it’s Dance Day.
Today is also Magazine Day. I for one am sad that the magazine seems to be dying. There’s something so nice about anticipating the monthly delivery, persuing things that peak your interest and even tearing out things you want to save. I suppose you can still do all those same sorts of things with an online version, but it just isn’t the same.
It is also Love the Last Leaves to Leave Day. So get out there and enjoy all of the spectacular fall colors before they are gone! There’s beauty out there. Don’t choose to miss it by putting aesthetic enjoyment low on your priority list! I have always loved this quote: “Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the tremble of a leaf.” ~ Albert Schweitzer
A big happy birthday goes out to Joni Mitchell, born this day 1943. In high school I played her albums incessantly. Also celebrating getting a year older today are Christopher Knight (1957 aka Peter Brady) and Morgan Spurlock (1970).
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
Plus, as is often the case, the Chocolate Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.
