I was talking with my mom and I decided that I would spend the next year celebrating as many holidays and occurrences as possible. I think there are around 300 holidays a month!
My mom and I have always loved all the peculiar holidays and have had many laughs discussing them. I think this year will be a lot of fun but it will also require a lot of dedication, time, and it wont be without costs. I will give you once a week up dates once I get it started (Probably next month) and I will post daily journalings as often as possible. I have a feeling I will be rather busy.
I am home schooled which I believe will make this a whole heap easier, but also more challenging. Mom made an agreement with me... For this year I will use this as a lot of my school work. I will be writing reports on many of these days and I will be doing loads of research. I look forward to this coming year and I hope you will enjoy following my blog.
Feel free to post your comments along the way.

This one was real easy! Mom's got her new Kitten and I've got my cat Lila...So we hugged them!
I had pictures of us huggin them but for some reason I can't find them....we had a bit of camera trouble so I was wondering if they were just never downloaded. Sorry.

Memorial day

Dee (our Grandmother) came up for Memorial day. We had a cook out- actually it was a cook in and eat out! We have no way of cooking 'out' so we cooked burgers on the stove and ate out side under out awning. We didn't feel much like going to the parade this year.
Oh and dad and I made a Chicken coop today! It has nothing to do with Chickens but it's exciting!
Happy Memorial day!

Old-Time Player Piano Week

 May 25-28 is Old Time Player Piano week. Here's our New Player! 
You pump the petals to get the player to work. It pushes on bellows that blow air to make the sound come through the roll, very fascinating! 
 It doesn't have the player in it right now because it needs repairing but it's still a player piano!

 I REALLY like this piano, It has a very rich, full, deep sound...and even the higher keys are very crisp. ..It's a great piano.  And it seems I'm not the only one who likes it.

National Taffy day

We have Taffy in our shop (Barely Harvest) for five cents each! they are very yummy n soft! 
 I took the picture with my phone-sorry for the quality.

Health related monthlies

There are A LOT of health related monthly holidays this month, I have a really boring high school text book called 'Total Health; Choices for a winning life style' so for certain holidays - that have some thing on the health subject that are in this book- I just read about them. I'll list them and give the description that the health book gives.

Arthritis Awareness month
Arthritis: Condition characterized by pain, swelling,  stiffness, and redness in the joints. Also known as inflammation of  a joint or joints.

National Allergy/asthma awareness month
Allergen: A substance to which a person's body is particularly sensitive.
Asthma: A respiratory condition where the air passage in the bronchial tree swell and constrict.

Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month
There was a big long section on Melanoma and skin cancer in the book but for some reason there's no definition.

World Lyme Disease Awareness month
I am VERY aware of Lyme disease and I don't need a book to tell me what it's like - I have it and have had it for ten months. I was going to put the definition here any way but again- there is none. Though I do remember the section on Lyme being just a short paragraph.

National Mental Health Month
Ok...so there are way less descriptions than I thought. this one doesn't have one either though it was a long section in the book...what ever!

National Osteoporosis Prevention month
Osteoporosis: A condition that results in a loss of bone tissue.
My dad also had me read an article on osteoporosis that he wrote. He has it on his website some where!

National Blood Pressure month
Blood Pressure: The measure of the resistance to blood flow in the vessels and the efficiency of circulation.

That's it for now, I may add more later though! Sorry for boring you!
Oh, one other thing. Blogger wouldn't let me publish this because there were too many words in the labels...so i took out some words. Sorry if you have trouble finding things.

Fruits and Veggies!

This month is Carrots and Cauliflower month, Grapefruit and kiwi month, Potatoes and Limes month, and Gifts from the Garden Month. 
  So for all these we went to Fiddle Head Farms  (I love that place!)  and bought all those things! We also bought Fiddle heads...but not for a holiday, Just to try!
  I only have pictures right now of the grapefruit and Kiwi but if I take more I'll be sure to post them. Our cameras acting up right now so I may not be able to take pictures for a while but with any luck we'll solve the problem!

Happy New friends old friends week!

Wakefeild Pride day

Wakefeild Pride day is a day just for the town of Wakefeild- it's the town right next to ours. We had two booths for pride day, one for Barely Harvest, and One for Abundant Blessings Homecare.  It was really fun-and hot! There were about 60 booths all together. Lions club had a booth, there was a dunking booth, petting zoo, a bunch of food venders, jewlery, etc. and there was a parade after lunch.
 There was even a Boys Club booth! today is Boys Club day! happy Boys Club day!

Ok, So from now till the end of summer I'm not trying to do as many holidays as I can. I am aiming for one a day and if I get more than that done than yay! I have to be on the computer to do most of the holidays, and with the weather being so nice the last thing I want to do is be in the house on the computer. I'd much rather be training the dog or goofing off with the goats! I hope every one's ok with that.
I also have to apologize for the past week. I've done almost NO holidays- SORRY! I was dancing at a nursing home Thursday, Had a Ballet recital Saturday, then got an awful head cold, that is only now starting to leave! I know. I know. A bunch of excuses. But at least I have some reason right?  Don't abandon me for doing a bad job on my dedication! I'll keep it up...I don't give up that easily!

Wednesday, 16 May 2012

P.S. I just got a call from my Uncle! He Got the card today. He had no idea the holiday existed. I'm finding that not many people are aware of any of the holidays.

Mother Goose day

Where would we be without mother goose? Today's a day to remember the mother goose rhymes!
Here's a couple common ones I found online:

Little Bo peep has lost her sheep,
And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, and they'll come home,
And bring their tails behind them.

Little Bo Peep Fell fast asleep,
And dreamt she heard them bleating;
But when she awoke, she found it a joke,
For they were still a-fleeting.

Then up she took her little crook,
Determined for to find them;
She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed,
For they'd left their tails behind them.

Little Jack Horner
Sat in a corner,
Eating his Christmas pie.
He put in his thumb,
And pulled out a plum,
And said "What a good boy and I!"

A farmer went riding
 Upon his grey Mare;
Bumpety, Bumpety, Bump!
With his  daughter behind him,
so Rosy and fair;
Lumpety, Lumpety Lump!

A raven cried "Croak!"
And they all tumbled down;
Bumpety, Bumpety Bump!
The mare broke her knees,
the farmer his crown;
Lumpety, Lumpety, Lump!

The mischievous raven 
Flew laughing away;
Bumpety, Bumpety, Bump!
He vowed he would serve them
 The same the next day;
Lumpety, Lumpety, Lump!

More Rhymes

happy Mother Goose day

Stepmother's day

For Stepmother's day I made a card for a stepmother we know. I won't see her for a couple days but at least I made the card today! Happy Stepmothers day
