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.

Vitamin C day

World Rat day

So for World Rat day I made this card for my Friend who has a couple rats! She also sent me pictures of them for this! Their names are below the pictures! Happy World Rat Day!

Hope (It's also National day of Hope!) ^

National Chicken Cordon Bleu day

4 chicken breasts - pounded flat
4 slices swiss cheese
8 slices ham or proscuitto
1 cup flour (can reduce this a bit)
1 tsp paprika
2 eggs
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 Tbsp herbs (we used some bells seasoning, parsley, oregano)
salt and pepper

Lay out one of the flattened chicken breasts. On the chicken lay 2 slices of ham and one slice of cheese. Roll up the chicken and use toothpicks or skewers to secure.

In a bowl mix together the flour, salt, pepper, and paprika. Beat the eggs with 2 Tbsp of water, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix herbs with the bread crumbs in another bowl. Roll the chicken in the flour mixture. Then dip the chicken in the egg mixture, then roll in the bread crumbs.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the chicken in a baking pan or on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown and the juices run clear.

Bonza Bottler Day

Bonza Bottler is just when the Month and date are the same number! Today is 4/4!
Have a great Bonza Bottler!


I feel I should probably let every one know That I am dealing with what we think is Lyme disease. It makes me really tired and makes me exhaust easily. So - like today - there may be days that I'm may not be able to celebrate all the holidays that are on that day. I hate to admit that there are quite a few holidays I did not celebrate today...I apologize.

Stress Awareness Month

April is Stress Awareness month...I am definitely aware of stress!
Today I went to the Massage therapist AND the Chiropractor. I think that's a great way to celebrate Stress Awareness. Happy Stress Awareness month - Go get a massage!

National day of Hope

National day of Hope is a day to hope for a stop to child abuse.
Hope has big meaning for our family because of my great-grand-mother who died just a few years ago. I had started Ellen's Hope in her memory (http://www.leukemiasupport.blogspot.com/) and the rock and ornament were bought, thinking of her.

Square Root day

Ok...so today isn't really square root day but I found this very interesting so decided to post about it any way! Square Root day is when the date is the square root of he last two digits in the year. So the last Square Root day was 3/3/09, the next Square Root day will be today in four years: 4/4/16 I think that's cool! Do you get it? 2 is the square root of 9...4 is the square root of 16!
Here's some thing else I found on the Square Root: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fO9EU0w3CrY
Now apparently the scare crow gets it wrong...but it's still fun to watch! Happy not Square Root day!

National Walking day

Mom and I walked down the street to the store to buy eggs. I didn't bring my camera though so I have no pictures...Sorry. Happy Walking day.

World Party day

Yesterday was World Party day. I wasn't able to post about it then so I am now!My dad teaches Karate to a couple kids in a room above the library that they let us use. At the end of karate Mom and I went over there with lemon brownie cup cakes. So we had a tiny, short party! It was fun!
Every body REALLY liked the cup cakes so I thought I'd tell you how I did them.
I make flavored brownies a lot and it's really easy. Just use your regular brownie recipe and instead of using the called for amount of vanilla extract use the amount given but doubled of what ever flavoring extract you'd like. If your recipe doesn't call for vanilla than you can just add a couple teaspoons of extract t0 the batter - estimate.
I just dumped the badder into mini cup muffin tins instead of a nine by thirteen.
Happy World Party day!

Paraprofessionals appreciation day

Happy Paraprofessionals Appreciation day!

I put a little candy in a bag and labeled it for the gift. This is probably what I'll do for most of my gifts.

So for Paraprofessionals Appreciation day I made up two gifts to give to Paraprofessionals at the Wakefeild school. I've only been in any schools a couple times in my life and it was never during school hours...so this was fairly odd for me!
Mom and I dropped the gifts off at the window inside the door. We told them that they could decide who to give them to.
Out side the school.
