Easy to do if it wasn’t for COVID restrictions, celebrate National Hug Day. Oh well, you’ll have to hug your roommate if your lucky enough to have one. I think strangers would frown on it today. 😉

One-liners Day is one of my favorite days to celebrate. If a parsley farmer gets sued, can they garnish his wages?

Get healthy eat a granola bar on National Granola Bar Day.

We’re getting ready for a Florida vacation. I’ve set up times to meet with all of our boys and their families before we go. I’d have had them all at the same time, but we’re limited to 5 per visit. What a crazy restriction, we’ll just see each separately. I’m looking forward to some sunshine and swimming. Wearing a mask is recommended there but not required. Vaccine passports are illegal. That’s why so many Ontarians have headed south. I’m ready. We sold our summer trailer and are downsizing at home. So renting a trailer in Florida sounds really good. Click here for the CTV article.

Time to get out and look for a snowy owl. Today is National Bird Day. A day set aside to reduce the pain and suffering of caged birds. Keep your caged birds clean, happy and well fed. When you buy a bird, be prepared to keep it for a lifetime (some live for 100 years).

Today is also National Whipped Cream Day. So indulge a little and add some whipped cream to your coffee or dessert.

On the 12th Day of Christmas (and the last) my true love gave to me:

12 drummers drumming
Eleven pipers piping
Ten lords a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings (five golden rings)
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle-doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

The Christmas tree is down and we’re ready for the Epiphany. COVID restrictions began again today for a minimum of 21 days. A Stay-cation credit has been added to our tax exemptions for this year, if you’re rich enough to stay anywhere other than home. 2022 is already looking like a repeat of the last 2 years.
