★~ Eat Outside Day:
Can you believe August is over? The summer days are dwindling fast and soon we will be asking, “Cold enough for you?” But not yet. Today is the perfect day to eat lunch on your patio, plan a picnic dinner in the park, enjoy a popsicle on your porch. Some picnic favorites are fresh fruit, grilled perfect- picnic chicken or vegetable kabobs, don’t forget the crusty bread and cheese.
★~National Trail Mix Day:
Trail Mix and I have a sordid past together. So I’ll just stick to my Hershey bars and encourage you to munch on the same snack that the Ancient nomads, and Natives Americans enjoyed for many moons according to Foodtimeline. I wonder where the Nomads and Native Americans found the M&M’S?

★~ Rabbit Rabbit Reminder:
Today is the last day of August and you know what that means don’t you? It’s time to prepare for the first of the month and all that can be yours by simple saying ”rabbit, rabbit!” The first words out of your mouth on the first day of September must be “rabbit, rabbit.”
This foggy Chicago day matches my mood. I’m not sure what the day will bring yet, but I’m not ready :-D. If you feel like me let’s just show up and let the rest take care of itself today! I know the my mood doesn’t match the quote of the day,but I bet Wayne Dyer would understand. May he rest in peace knowing he left this world a better a place,
