Happy National Creme-Filled Doughnut Day!


"Of the first of your dough ye shall give unto the LORD an heave offering in your generations."  --Numbers 15:21

Sometimes when I want to be inspired to take a picture or to make an ordinary day not so ordinary, I look to see if the day has been designated as a national holiday.  What does it take for a day to become designated as a national holiday?  Doesn't a resolution or something have to be passed by Congress?  And why would anyone designate a day to become National Creme-Filled Doughnut Day?  Or National Goof Off Day?  Or National Sea Monkey Day?  I don't know, but I thoroughly enjoyed my creme-filled donut this morning.  Maybe I'll even hug a crabby stranger today or eat a hoagie.  By the way, what is doodle soup?

  1. I think if you're past diapers with your kids you don't have to worry about doodle soup. ; )

    Thanks for the excuse to indulge today—I feel a trip to the bakery coming on!

    Also, if you ever come up against a day without a satisfying national celebration attached, do what I do—invent your own holiday.

    (P.S. Yes, I will share my findings on virtue with you. Thanks for asking!)
