Oct. 28

Happy Birthday to my sister Kathi. I hope it's a good one!

I have no idea how it got to be Friday- or the end of October. Halloween is Monday - and the time changes next weekend, November 6th. I've noticed the tiny changes in the season but seriously the actually days of the month are crazy. People keep asking me about Thanksgiving and Christmas. My mind whirls. All I have to say is that I'm glad I graduated in June. If I graduated in January with most of my classmates, I don't know how I would have been able to get it all done.

The people at work of India descent told me that this is Dawali - their Christmas/new years celebration. I am always excited to learn about a new culture and celebrations. We grow up thinking everyone has the same traditions and holidays as we do. Then we become grownups and learn that the traditions/foods and holidays are as diverse as the people. Celebrating that is the most fun of all.

What special celebrations/traditions to you celebrate at your house?


  1. We celebrate everything...we even have cake sometimes for stuffed animal birthdays. We don't do a lot of decorating, but we do a lot of eatung. :)

  2. LOL~ Love it, Anita! Thanks for sharing.
