Daily Quote: February 7, 2021

There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in the contrast.

Holidays and Celebrations:


Porte Musings:

The first Sunday in February and I’m one step closer to getting my new heater installed in my garage. Once done I’ll be able to ride my exercise bike and an least get some exercise during the coldest week so far in 2021.

Rose Day is celebrated one week before Valentine’s Day. That way we can enjoy the roses for an entire week. Be certain to buy scented roses for a special treat during the week. Most roses at florists are unscented, so you’ll have to ask, or better still buy a pot of mini roses that can be planted out in the spring and continue to bloom all summer. I’ve only ever known 1 person who was allergic to roses, my Grandmother. She said her husband bought her a beautiful bouquet so she took a big smell and fainted immediately.

In preparation for Valentine’s Day get out the stationary and quills to Send a Card to a Friend. This may be very important to do during the final days of the lock down in Ontario. Cards of hope telling them how much you miss them and cherish their friendship.

If you’ve been waiting for the right time, do it now before you buy them chocolates or get Valentine’s Day gifts from them: Dump Your Significant Jerk Day.

All of the men living at my house will be sitting in front of the TV tonight with munchies as they celebrate the Super Bowl Game. None of their teams have made it this far, but they still have to watch the big game.

As I saw someone else post: the craft room is opening at 2:30PM for all of those that don’t follow football. Today my sister and I will be following a free “Paint Night” tutorial learning how to paint a couple of otters swimming on their backs together.

Have a blessed Sunday. ❤
