I have to tell you; I've been reading so much this morning about sandwiches... and looking at so many pictures of sandwiches until I had to fry myself one for breakfast. Tomorrow is the 1st day of August and that means it's National Sandwich Month.
So keep an eye out for some really good sandwich posts ok. I have several planned in celebration of the sandwich. The 1st post will be about the Panini sandwich. I love panini sandwiches in the winter time but I don't usually eat them in the summer. But hey August is National Panini Month too so we gotta-go-with-it right.
Last day for everyone to celebrate Christmas In July. I usually like to post a couple of things in honor of it but I just didn't find the time to do it this year. I had a few peppermint ideas I wanted to share. I guess I will save all I have to say about Christmas for December. Smile~
August 1st is tomorrow and you know what that means for Americans. Hot Hot Hot Weather. A lot of people are going to be hitting the water to stay cool. I know swimming is a great way to beat the heat for sure. They say that August is the most popular time for people to go on vacation too. Personally I like the end of September for my vacation time.
Speaking of the heat.... I want to remind everyone about staying hydrated. Guys we must drink plenty of water when we are out in the heat. I learned the hard way last week. I worked out in the sun doing hard labor for 4 hours and I didn't drink enough water. I knew better but I kept on working. It made me very sick and it gave me the worst headache that lasted for 2 days. I will never do that again! So.... I plan on doing a couple post about prevention and treatment of dehydration. We want to live every day like a Holiday and that's hard to do when we are not at our best. Hey, August is National Water Quality Month too.
Today's the day we say goodbye to National Picnic Month. A new month starts tomorrow but that doesn't mean we have to stop enjoying picnics. Picnics are a happy event that I say needs to continue on. In August I like to stay in the shade and read a lot. On my off days you can find me underneath one of my big trees perched on a comfy picnic blanked, doing a bit of relaxed reading. Talk about happy happy happy. Which reminds me of another holiday ahead of us.
Did any of you know that August is Happiness Happens Month and August 8th is Happiness Happens Day? I don't know where I've been but somehow this observance has slipped right past me for several years now. The purpose of Happiness Happens Month is to share happiness and encourage people to talk and think about happiness. Well that sounds perfect to me! I have to get caught up on this holiday for sure. I'm working on a post that explains about the history and origin of the holiday. I'm pretty excited about sharing one that actually has some factual information to it. lol. Over time, the background history of many holidays are lost. So keep an eye out for it. I'm hoping to have the post ready by August 8th.
