Hello and welcome to this week’s hop. Thanks so much for joining us!
This week’s challenge comes from the fabulous A.S. Fenichel:
Leap Year! This is it folks; you get an entire extra day to do with as you wish. We’re always wanting more time and this year we actually get it. I got married on Leap Day in 2008, so this year I get a “real” anniversary. What will you do with your extra day?
First – Happy Anniversary, Andie!
An extra day? Well, now I have no excuse not to sit down and write several thousand words. And do some sewing – and there’s the laundry and dinner to make. Wait. That sounds like every other day.
I think that unless there’s a reason for celebration – like a birthday or an anniversary on the 29th— it might just slip by as just another day. It even falls on a Saturday this year. But the idea of Leap Year has always fascinated me. It’s like a savings account. You take a few hours out of every year for three years and presto—you get another whole day! And, while savings accounts are valuable, it’s more important to savor every day.
So, to those who only get to really celebrate once every four years, I raise my glass. And to those of us who don’t have a special event on the 29th—celebrate anyway. It’s one more day of life and it will be what you make it.
Oh, I did I mention coming soon…
Now, let’s pop over to the fantastic Brenda Margriet and see what she had planned.
