Is that Frosty's Magic Hat full of holiday goodies? A time capsule of what's gone before and what is yet to come? As we begin 2018 we have a lot to look forward to. There's a holiday for every day of the year and I've brought some props to our New Year's Scribble Picnic to celebrate some of them.
It's a little wobbly I know. I wasn't sure I'd make it to the picnic this week. I had some dental surgery last week and it's taken more of the wind out of my sails than I had expected. We're expecting a snowstorm overnight and I'm hoping it'll be a snow day. I'll be wearing my pajamas inside-out, flushing ice cubes down the toilet, and this one's new to me - sleeping with a spoon under my pillow in the hopes that the phone will ring around 5 a.m. and I'll be able to relax another day. We've only been back at school for the last two days, but I'm exhausted already. I got out my "snow wand" at school today, and spun in my chair whilst waving it to lighten the mood. The little crystal ball that Rachel gave me a few years back was consulted and I really think there's a very good chance for a SNOW DAY!
There are many websites out there that have information about daily holidays. The Daily Holiday Blog is a go-to for me. They have a printable monthly calendar that I keep up in the office and have another one on our refrigerator at home. With so much negativity going on in the world I find it nice to find something, even if it's wacky, to celebrate daily. Even if it's just by sharing the knowledge of the day with someone else and getting a laugh out of it.
So, I didn't choose a "word" of the year like I've seen many do, but I did scribble this in my journal trying out some new pens - the words to a song on an album by Danny Kaye that I had as a child and that I played for my children when they were very little. I'm hoping to share it with our little guy too........
Happy New Year once again, and remember to be yourself and celebrate each day!
Now I'm off to visit with the other picnickers if I can stay awake a little while longer, otherwise I know I'll be wishing everyone at the picnic a Happy New Year soon. You can too by clicking here. And, as always, should you like to join in, the theme for next week is - YOUR FAVORITE FICTION.
