Hello! Have you ever heard about?🤔

cute girl glasses attwellHi Everyone!

Have you ever heard about blase’ day? I haven’t. Below is information from National Day Calendar.com

BLASE’ DAY

Blase’ Day is observed annually on November 25.

On Blase’ Day, we have permission to be blase’ toward just about anything. 

Of French origin meaning to be indifferent or bored with life, unimpressed, as or as if from an excess of worldly pleasures.

pumpkinUnimpressed by pumpkin spice everything? It’s okay to be blase’ about it today. Heard the same pop song for the 4th time today? Be blase’. Nothing on TV tonight? teal shell animatedJust be blase’. Bored by your friend’s team winning their 266th game in a row? Yep, you got it. Whether it’s that 20 page Christmas letter, your mom’s constant picture taking or the fifth night of leftover pizza, you can be blase’.

HOW TO OBSERVE

There are also several ways to express your blase’ feelings.  Meh.  Yawn. Tune out. Use #BlaseDay to post on social media. See the source image

My idea of social media is talking with people face to face. retro pop art women

HISTORY

Blase’ Day was created by Thomas & Ruth Roy of Wellcat Holidays.

Have a great day! Isaac Maimon amandaHope

Hello! It’s National French Toast Day 😊

Hi Everyone!

Happy National French Toast Day!

A great recipe from Blue Diamond.com

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup almond butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 1 cup plus 4 tsp. Almond Breeze Almond Coconut Blend almondmilk Almond Coconut Original
  • divided
  • 4 tsp. mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 8 slices day-old Italian bread (½” thick)
  • 4 large eggs; lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or vegetable oil
  • Toasted coconut; optional
  • Syrup; optional
  • Combine almond butter, 4 teaspoons almond milk, and 4 teaspoons mini chocolate chips
  • Spread 4 slices of bread with almond mixture. Top with the remaining slices of bread.
  • Whisk together remaining almond milk and eggs in 13”x 9” baking dish. Dip sandwiches in egg mixture, soaking for 2 minutes per side.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter or oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place 2 of the sandwiches in skillet. Cook 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining sandwiches and butter or oil. Top with coconut and syrup, if desired.

Refrigerate leftovers.

Almond butter and mini dark chocolate chips sandwiched between golden slices of egg-battered bread – it’s a reason to roll out of bed! Be sure to use bread that is at least a day old – stale bread soaks up the tasty almondmilk-egg batter better than fresh. Almond Coconut almondmilk is delicious in this recipe – vanilla, banana and even chocolate varieties are also super tasty. For a decadent take, double the filling.

Have a great day! Hope

Hello November!

fall crowHi Everyone!

WOW! Can you believe it’s November already?

Now let’s get down to business!

  • m_m candy girlhow much candy did you buy for Halloween?
  • how much candy did you give out?
  • how much candy was left over? ghost candy corn
  • how much candy was left over after you ate some?

caramel apple_1I’m sure many of you know you can return unopened bags of candy where you brought them from. If you have your receipt you will get the price you paid, if you don’t you will get the sale price of Halloween. 

Check with your areas some dentists will take your candy, may give you a small payment, then they ship it to the troops overseas.

You can always check your local areas, churches, clubs, retirements, activity centers.

And now it’s time to start planning November days coming up. precious-moments-rain-flower.gif

Have a great day! OldDesignShop_FlowerChildMorningGloryHope
