My life has been full of terrible misfortunes
most of which never happened.

As we head towards the Christian celebration of Lent, today is Shrove Monday. Parades and carnivals begin before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.

We pause to remember all that are afflicted with rare diseases as we celebrate Rare Disease Day. Praying for cures for the rare diseases.

Buy a chocolate souffle to celebrate National Chocolate Souffle Day. I tried to bake one once, but it ended up being as flat as a pancake. 😉

The last day in February is the day that we remember Rare Disease Day. On a leap year this would be February 29th. But like people who are born February 29th, this day is remembered as Rare Disease Day on February 28th when we aren’t in a leap year.

Today is also National Science Day. One time science was called witchcraft, now we honour it as truth and advances in mankind. Cures for disease and new worlds are being discovered by Science. Now if we could only rid the world of the rare diseases.

Sometimes you’re just so tired you could sleep anywhere. Today it’s OK to sleep in public as we celebrate National Public Sleeping Day. Although I personally don’t like to sleep in public because you are so vulnerable when you sleep. Sweet Dreams ❤


Almost forgot today is the Second Sunday in Lent. Easter is getting closer and so is spring.
