Millions long for immortality
who don’t know what to do with
themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Continuing with the countdown to Valentine’s Day, today is Galentine’s Day. A  fictitious holiday created by a 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation, now become a valid day to remember and celebrate all the good gal to gal friendships.

The Sunday before Valentine’s Day is set aside as Autism Sunday. Autism has such a large range of limitations or differences that is is called a spectrum disorder. My youngest grandson has been diagnosed as having Autism. The past year has seen him grow in leaps and bounds as he started day care then graduated on to Pre-kindergarten. COVID and the limits on groups has been extremely difficult for him. Just being with other children, he copies their behaviours and learns to express himself so much better. Luckily his mother works from home, so she has been able to continue his routines as much as possible.

Today is also Superbowl Sunday and what better day to celebrate Super Chicken Wing Sunday. Any excuse for wings. 😉
