Nothing would be done at all
if one waited until one could do it so well
that no one could find fault with it.

Happy February Holiday Monday!

In Canada, the provinces are divided on what they should call the Holiday Monday in February. Most provinces call it Family Day, while PEI calls it Islander Day and Manitoba calls it Louis Riel Day.

In the USA they call it President’s Day. But whatever you call it we all agree we need a holiday Monday in February.

So get out those sticky buns and celebrate National Sticky Bun Day on this holiday Monday in February. 😉

Fear not that thy life shall come to an end,
but rather that it shall never have a beginning.

Porte Musings:

I woke up with an insatiable itch on the bottom of my left foot. I rubbed it briskly over my right foot to no avail. Finally I broke down and put some moisturizer on it, only to find even though it brought some relief it didn’t satisfy the itch. So I went on-line to see what superstitions were associated with this omen. Of course the obvious was that it indicated travel, the right foot would be a planned voyage, the left foot meaning an unforeseen voyage or bump on the road. As always interpretations aren’t necessarily literal, and they could either mean change either planned or unplanned.

So on the First Sunday of Lent we are looking forward to change.

We should probably start by celebrating Single Tasking Day. Do one thing at a time. Turn of the games on the phone while waiting and just live in the moment.

We could do that by getting out all the old greeting cards we’ve received over the years and read them, taking time just to remember the people we’ve received them from and celebrate Card Reading Day.

There is no way to read old cards and greetings without celebrating Language Day. Remember all the various languages throughout the world. An interesting fact on the radio this morning was that Cree is the most spoken Indigenous Language in Canada with more than 92,000 people speaking Cree.
