09272007npd.jpgNational Punctuation Day
Commas, and semi-colons, and explanation marks. Oh my!

A day to appreciate the lowly punctuation mark.

So in honor of the day vow never again to ignore the ” , ” or ” * ” or even the mighty ” . “!

While shopping at our local Kmart today look what we found right around the corner from the Halloween costumes! Christmas trees galore!

(September 23) Today we're celebrating . . .  Fall / Autumn

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

Fall / Autumn / Autumnal Equinox
Its time for cooler days, colder nights, and the trees and gardens will soon be ablaze in reds, yellows, oranges and every color in between.

Its time for apple picking and apple pie. For raking leaves and cool weather gear. For sweaters and hats and a nip in the air. For Halloween costume preparations and holiday baking plans.

Welcome Fall, my favorite time for the year!

And to our friends in the Southern Hemisphere – Happy Spring!
