Family and Friends
NATIONAL HOMEMAKER DAY shows some love to those who keep the home fires burning. Today used to be called National Housewife’s Day, but some time’s it’s dad who covers homebase and when both work, both have to tend to the home. It’s not easy but there is nothing better than a warm inviting home.

Today’s Fashion Trends
NATIONAL ACCESSORY DAY just adds a little something extra to the day. Accessories can make the outfit. Not gonna lie here – I have a closet full of suspenders and I make sure they go with the shirt and pants every time.
CLICHÉ DAY tells us that we can’t have our cake and eat it too, but that cake is just sittin’ there like a bump on a log. I know it will be tasty but it’s the thought that counts and if I turn my back then it’s out of sight, out of mind. Oh well, it is what it is and if I still want that cake later, I will have to cross that bridge when I come to it.
Belly up to the Bar
INTERNATIONAL STOUT DAY hoists a mug to this strong, robust beer. This brew is better sipped and savored than chugged and oft times has kind of a coffee taste. Cheers!
On Today’s Menu…
NATIONAL SANDWICH DAY starts with one slice of bread, puts anything you want on it – places another slice on top and celebrates.
