Friday Fun: August Is Full of Surprises!

Life is full of surprises too, isn't it? And if you're like most people here, you've discovered they're not all happy surprises. In the early days of grief, the rest of the world might look like it's spinning away on a crazy merry-go-round, while you're trying to get back up from the sucker punch of grief. Or maybe the "dog days" of summer have you dragging more than usual? I could feel them yesterday! I was tired to the bone!

On those kind of days, we need to be our own best friend and do something good for ourself. I intended to do that with a new haircut and color. But, the results are doubtful! Oh well, it'll grow out, right? And I'm NOT posting a new picture! The one of me in the truck is as good as it gets, lol. I go back on Wednesday for some extra highlights.

Since the beauty shop didn't really give me anything to be happy about I kept looking. I wanted a little treat to look forward to. That's what we need during the dog days of summer right? (Click the link if you, like my hairdresser, never heard of dog days). In my efforts to pick myself up I discovered that August holds far more than Dog Days!

I've already missed National Ice Cream Sandwich Day (August 2),
National Watermelon Day (August 3),
National Leave A Zucchini On Your Neighbor's Porch Day (August 8),
and National Polka Day, National Lazy Day and National S'mores Day. I have a lot of catching up to do, but I think I'll save my energy for a big pig-out on National Banana Split Day, August 25!

Have some fun today and decide which days you should call for a treat. Find the silly celebrations at National Day Calendar. All sorts of websites will tell you these little-known, but oh-so-deserving national days, however this one looked like the best to me.

What "national holiday" are you looking forward to? Click and tell it into the comment box for us all, ok?

Thank goodness it's Friday!
