December 21, is National Kiwifruit Day, Look on the Bright Side Day & First Day of Winter 

Quote of the Day
“Fresh fruits are so untainted. We don’t process them, cook them or package them. There are some fruits out there that are packed with natural energy that kids like, like kiwi fruit, … Kiwis are part of the super fruit category. One kiwi has all the vitamin C you need for the day”

“The virtue of anyone or anything is solely in our perspective. See gold, and there is gold; see lead and there is lead. If you see this thistle as a thorny nuisance, then it is a weed. If you appreciate its bright pink bloom, then it is a flower. It becomes what you name it. The power is in your choice, your perspective, your speaking.”

December 17, is National Maple Syrup Day

Quote of the Day
“Let’s say you had to report back to heaven at the end of your time on earth, tell them what your personal allotment of experience had been: wouldn’t it sound like Poppy’s speech? The smell of radiator dust on a winter morning, the taste of hot maple syrup …”

Closing Quote
“The End of the Most Amazingest Trip in the History of Time “We’re heading home after checkout, Enzo,” Dad told me one morning in the restaurant of a Sacramento hotel as I was busy scarfing down French toast stuffed with cheese and drenched in maple syrup. I will never eat stuffed French toast again. The trip was over? How did this happen? All six weeks couldn’t possibly have come and gone so fast. Time is so unfair. It whizzes by when you’re having the most incredible fun of your life, then drags when you’re totally miserable, like, say, when you’re stuck at the wedding of people you’re not even sure you know. Dad and his boss, Evan, set their hands on my shoulders, to steady me. I was feeling pretty wobbly. Then they took turns tousling my hair. I hate having my hair tousled. “Don’t!” I whined like a little kid, and pushed their hands away. Evan laughed. “Don’t take it so hard. Even the most awesome things have to come to an end”
Author: Patrick Jennings

Yes all things must come to an end and that’s it for today, hope you enjoy today’s post National Maple Syrup Day and enjoy some maple syrup on your pancakes, french toast or beans. See you back here tomorrow! 😃
