Drink More Water Day
Rest is not idleness,
and to lie sometimes
on the grass under trees
on a summer’s day,
listening to the murmur
of the water,
or watching the clouds
float across the sky,
is by no means a waste of time.
Today is Single Tasking Day. I am a big believer in uni-tasking! Multi task and you miss out on everything that is happening around you as well as the task you are jumbling together!
It is also Be Humble Day and Walk Your Dog Day. So take that walk and take notes about being humble from your dog.
Today we also say happy birthday to Drew Barrymore (1975). She has a lovely new book out, Find It In Everything, about finding hearts in everyday objects. We need to get her onto the Smiley team! Anyone have her contact info?
The big birthday of today is George Washington‘s. Does anyone even remember it? In recent years we’ve bundle Lincoln and Washington together to net a 3 day Presidents’ weekend (which I always pretend is in honor of my birthday). Read a quote of Washington’s about happiness on our Month of Smiley Silliness.
Other birthdays today include Ted Kennedy (1932) and Steve Irwin (1962),
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 Water Glass Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.
