Daily Quote: September 24, 2021

The game of life is a game of boomerangs.
Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us
sooner or later with astounding accuracy.

September 24th is the day to get out the perfumed paper and write a Love Note on Love Note Day. I remember sending scented notes to my husband, knowing full well that his family worked at the local Post Office and would sort the letters for him.

For those of you lucky enough to live near your loved ones, celebrate Kiss Day. Kiss them in this time of COVID. But make sure you’re both double vacinated for at least 14 days. COVID vaccine passports are now a reality in Ontario where you need to have your proof of vaccination ready before you enter for in store eating and non-essential places of businesss.

May you have a wonderful National Bluebird of Happiness Day.

If not celebrate with National Cherries Jubilee Day. A wonderful treat for the soul and the mouth.

The human brain starts working the moment you are born
and never stops until you stand up to speak in public.

Holidays and Celebrations:


Porte Musings:

Saturday, February 13th, the 6th day of Valentine’s Week is Kiss Day. So pucker up and kiss the one you’re with. Continue the celebrations tonight with Global Movie Night. Even though we can’t go to the theatres during the pandemic we can still watch a Movie by streaming one on Netflix, Prime or just your regular on-demand cable channel. When we were in Texas last year we enjoyed all the old westerns that played on the free to air local channel.

Based on a  2010 episode of Parks and Recreation today is also Galentine’s Day. A day to celebrate our female friendships. A Girls Day starting with champagne breakfast and an outing together. Of course like everything the gender neutral version is Palentine’s Day. So no matter who you are you can celebrate by getting together with your best pals and just hang.

Don’t forget to celebrate World Radio Day. I always have the radio playing in the background. I love free radio. The music, the commentators, the weather, and local news…..what isn’t there to like about radio. I turn it on first thing in the morning before I have breakfast and usually listen whenever I’m in my kitchen.
