Happy Victoria Day!

Today is Monday, Victoria Day.

I would like to wish all my fellow Canadians and all my Canadian LJ friends a very Happy and safe Victoria Day.

Have a good day, get some rest in preparation for the (albeit shorter) week to come, and if you’re around any fireworks tonight, be safe and enjoy!

Happy Mother’s Day! May 13, 2018

Happy Mother’s Day.

Today is the day we celebrate our mothers and thank them for everything they’ve done for us throughout our lives. Those of us who are older have more to be thankful for than the younger folks out there whose mothers have yet to share all the joys and sorrows that their children bring over the course of years.

I will be giving my mother her card today, have flowers that are being sent to her, and am taking my mom out for supper this evening (or perhaps Monday night), but those are just the physical tokens that we give to our mothers on this day. It’s important today to spend some time with our mothers, to cook them a meal or take them out to a restaurant, but above all to share some quality time with our mothers.

Hug your mother today, if you live close enough to do so. Make sure you give her a call today if you do not.

I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. We may not show it year round, but you *are* very much loved and cherished by us, your sons and daughters.

Goddess Bless.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Today is celebrated in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (The Day of the Battle of Puebla). It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War, and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.

Here are 11 Facts You Need to Know About Cinco de Mayo.

And in the meantime, have a great day!

Happy Earth Day, everyone! 🙂

Today is the day when we celebrate Gaia, Mother Nature, and all that goes along with that. While it’s fine to celebrate today and all that, please remember to treat the planet right. It’s the only one we’ve got.

Happy Easter (weekend), everyone!

I would like to wish all my LJ friends, and for that matter all my friends who aren’t on LJ (so aren’t reading this!), a very Happy Easter.

May you all have a really great weekend, eat plenty of food, and indulge in those chocolate Easter bunny eggs! 🙂

It’s Good Friday. The start of the Easter weekend for most folks.

I woke up this morning feeling somewhat under the weather, not really sick, but very tired and hurting pretty badly in the shoulder and back area. Nothing new there. Tossed and turned somewhat last night.

The weather is overcast with some rain, but is in the plus degrees Celsius, so that’s a positive. I’m still recovering from the shopping session that I did a couple of days ago, so I’ll see how I feel the rest of the day.

Gaming for this evening with the Friday night crew is off, as most of them are dealing one way or another with Easter weekend stuff. Hope that I’ll get back to doing some playing through and testing of the material for one of the games that I’ll be running at CanGames the third week of May.

In the meantime, a quiet Friday (I hope).

Folks should not forget that today we celebrate Earth Hour.

Tonight’s the night that we switch off the lights between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm.

Earth Hour is designed to raise awareness of climate change, and was initiated by the World Wildlife Fund in Sydney, Australia in 2007. It is observed by at least 4,000 cities in 88 countries of the world (including the city of Ottawa).

So, remember, turn off the lights for an hour tonight and honour Earth Hour.

Good morning, everyone!

Today is the first day of Spring. Not sure what the weather is going to be like today (haven’t checked the forecast yet), but I’m hoping for a nice day. This is Ottawa, so one expects whatever weather one expects. 🙂

I just want to wish everyone a very good, very happy First Day of Spring!

Hope the weather wherever you are is balmy, the skies are clear, and that you get outside and spend the day in the fresh, Spring air!
