It's August 24th and that means its National Peach Pie Day. So today you have an excuse to bake yourself a crusty peach pie right. My mother was forever baking pies when I was growing up but every time she gathered a basket of peaches from our peach trees, she always made a peach cobbler instead of a peach pie. Her second choice was always fried peach pies. But I guess anyway you can get a sweet dessert made with peaches is fantastic. I hope everyone enjoys National Peach Pie Day by baking a pie.

It's August 13th and that means it's International Left Handers Day! I'm a lefty myself and I'm happy to know there is a day especially for us left handers. From what I've been reading, left handers are from seven to ten percent of the world's population. What is this holiday for anyway? It is meant to promote awareness of the inconveniences facing left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world and since I'm a lefty myself I can witness to the fact that finding items that accommodate a left handed person is hard to find. So for all you left handers.... today is your day so A very Happy Left Handers Day to you from me Pam :)

It's August 10th and that means it's Smores Day everyone! I love having this chocolate treat when melted over a fire outside. Somehow it tastes better to me when eaten fireside. I actually like to eat smores in the winter time when it's cold outside so it's a bit hard to eat it on a hot August day like today. That makes me wonder why this day was picked to represent National Smores Day when I think they are mostly eaten in the winter time? But what the heck, do it anyway and enjoy this sweet treat holiday. Visit National Smores Day for more information.
