Weird National Holidays

A week's worth of weird National Holidays you might want to celebrate!-2
Everyone talks about the disappointment of January. For three months we’ve been surrounded with the glitz and glamor of the holidays then comes January. A month full of cold weather with not much else to look forward to.

But rejoice! There is some good, and some reasons to celebrate in January, and I’m going to share them with you now. Granted, these “holidays” are for the United States, but if you are reading from another country, have no fear! We won’t mind sharing our special “holidays” with you as well!

So, without further ado, here is a reason to celebrate everyday this week!

Monday, January 23– National Pie Day. That’s right. Cut yourself a piece, it’s a holiday after all and a Monday. You deserve it!

Tuesday, January 24– National Compliment Day. You look fabulous, sitting there, reading this blog. You should do it more often!

Wednesday, January 25– National Opposite Day. I’m not really sure what you would do on this day. Maybe wear your socks on your hands? I don’t know!

Thursday, January 26– National Spouse’s Day. Spend a little extra time with your honey today; they deserve it.

Friday, January 27– National Punch the Clock Day. That should really be on a Monday, so how about we celebrate National Chocolate Cake Day instead! Yeah, I think that’s a better idea. Besides, it’s Friday. Relax a little. You’ve had a hard week. You deserve a piece of cake.

Saturday, January 28– National Data Privacy Day. You think Google and Amazon got the memo?

Sunday, January 29– National Puzzle Day AND National Corn Chip Day. How about celebrating by working a puzzle while eating corn chips. Best of both worlds right there!

So, see! There are some good things to January besides cold weather and crazy political rants on television. Go out, have a great week, and eat some cake! You deserve it.

Enjoying the Rain.

Enjoy the rain y'all!

Man, oh man, can you believe half of January is already gone? I know, time flies doesn’t it? Well, it does when you have a whole lot of things to do in that time, it seems. But, as I sit here, typing this blog post there is rain steadily falling outside my office window, the house is dark and quiet because my boys are napping, and I have a warm cup of coffee at my side. Really, time’s like these I savor. Just a moment, a moment of peace, of silence, and a moment of thankful praises that I am not outside getting drenched in that rain. Or in some of y’alls cases January snow, but we don’t get much of that in Texas.

What I should be doing is using the last twenty minutes of my time before my daughter gets home and spending it on my next novel. I know I should, but my heart isn’t in it today. Today, my heart is telling me to slow down, take it easy, and enjoy your surroundings.  I’m thankful the hustle and bustle of Christmas is over, and I’m joyful I can surround myself in things I love: my children, my coffee, and my kindle. Because there is nothing better than a warm cup of coffee and a good book on a rainy afternoon. If you need something to warm you up on a cold January day, I’ve got a couple of good-looking cowboys waiting to sweep you off your feet!

Enjoy the rain, y’all!
