Today you are you!

There is no one alive
who is you-er than you!

Christians around the world enter into the Season of Lent on Ash Wednesday. This is the beginning of the count down to Easter. The feasting and parades are now over for 42 days in preparation of the holiest of days, Easter Sunday. I challenge you not to give up things, but to do at least 1 act of kindness each day as we prepare for the Easter Celebration.

If you don’t have a cat, and live where cats are allowed, please consider saving a cat from a shelter today as we remember International Rescue Cat Day. You may not change the world, but you would change the life of one cat.

On the school day closest to March 2nd we remember Dr. Seuss Day and celebrate Read Across America Day. Born as Theodor Seuss Geisel, his stories with fantastical creatures have embedded themselves into our American culture. Not without controversy (some books were removed from schools and the public) the words of wisdom touch the lives of all of us. From The Cat in the Hat, to The Grinch we love them all.

Today’s food is Banana Cream Pie. So celebrate National Banana Cream Pie Day with a slice or two. 😉

There is only you and your camera.
The limitations in your photography are in yourself,
for what we see is what we are.

I do not like Green Eggs and Ham….Read a book on Dr. Seuss Day as we celebrate Read Across America Day. Although I’m certain this is only a designated celebration in the USA, I’m also certain Dr. Seuss would be happy if we made it read around the world day.

Unlike the Cat in the Hat, real cats need support. So today is International Rescue Cat Day. A day to remember all the stray and feral cats that have been rescued or still need to be rescued. Don’t just feed them, make sure they are spayed/neutered and give them a good home with love.

After all those of us who celebrate Old Stuff Day, probably have at least one cat to keep the mice away from our old stuff.

I’m so glad COVID-19 restrictions have been changed to ORANGE in London-Middlesex and that we can go to the second hand shops again. There’s nothing I like better than looking through old stuff and finding a bargain or two. ❤
