Checking out the special days in June was fun. Dairy day and donut day make me think what a sweet treat that a luscious donut (I prefer the cinnamon, round, no hole kind!) and a cold glass of milk would be. However, that just won’t work right now with the diet plan I’ve started. But, that’s another story. There are other days too numerous to mention, although some of them quite caught my fancy.
June 13 is Weed Your Garden Day. That is a never ending job, especially if one doesn’t put down the weed killer first! But, there are some gardens that just don’t need weeding. Here are a few.
Two other fun days are Zoo Day and Aquarium Day. If you can’t get to the real thing anytime soon, here are a few zoo/aquarium related items you may enjoy.
There are flowers, and then there are flowers. I’ve great respect for those who grow lovely roses because I believe they need lots of care and nourishment. Being the free for all gardener that I am, plants need to be a bit more able to survive on their own in my yard. However, Rose Day is one of the special June days. These roses don’t require fertilizer or water or special care. You will enjoy seeing them and wish that you had these kinds of roses for yourself!
On the diet mentioned above, fruits and vegetables are two of the main foods allowed. I’m finding them quite tasty and satisfyingly sweet (no sugar allowed on this plan). These creations by my Boomers and Beyond team members are also sweet and satisfying.
Flag Day is on June 14. Every time when I was a young girl, and I would say, “It’s almost my birthday,” my parents would say “Yes, it’s Flag Day.” Who can compete with that? LOL! I found these earrings made by Joni Stinson that would be perfect for that day.
And, last but not least by any means, June is Adopt a Cat month. Many of us have or have had these precious furry friends, and we have delighted in watching them play with a string, curl up on our laps as they emit a contented purr, or rub against our legs waiting to be fed. There are many cats still waiting in shelters across the country for good homes. For cat lovers everywhere, you may also enjoy these cat creations from the Boomers and Beyond team.
Whatever days you choose to recognize and/or celebrate this month, have fun, enjoy the day, and as a favor to me…..eat a donut and drink some milk! I’ll enjoy it vicariously.
