I Love to Write Day

Happy I Love to Write Day!

This day was founded in 2002 by author John Riddle, a non-fiction and self-help writer, to encourage children writing in schools and even encourage adults to pick up a pen.

To celebrate today, you can write a loved one a letter, create a poem, write a short story, start a novel, finish a novel, or write anything. It doesn’t have to be long. Jot down a few words.

Happy I Love to Write Day!

Mad Hatter Day

“A land was full of wonder, mystery, and danger. Some say, to survive it, you need to be as mad as a hatter. Which, luckily, I am.” ~ Mad Hatter, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Happy Mad Hatter Day! Yes, it’s a day! It’s a day set aside to bring out your silly side. Today, October 6th, matches the label tucked in the Mad Hatter’s hat that reads “In this style 10/6.”

To celebrate this fun holiday: enjoy some tea; read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; tell some fun riddles or puns; wear a hat; or watch the movie Alice in Wonderland.

My daughter and I are enjoying this classic novel together at the moment.

Happy Mad Hatter Day! Enjoy an excuse to act silly! 😉

Crater Lake National Park

Happy 119th anniversary to Crater Lake National Park located in Oregon!

About 7,700 years ago, Mount Mazama erupted creating the deepest lake in the United States and the 9th deepest in the world.  With a depth of 1,943 feet, Crater Lake is the  one of the most beautiful lakes you will ever see. The water’s intense blue color is an indication of its great depth and purity. Surrounded by cliffs, the lake is fed entirely by rain and snow. Scientists consider Crater Lake to be the cleanest and clearest large body of water in the world.

Enjoy a few photos from our visit there last October. As you will see, it was a bit hazy from fires in the area. But, the smoke and haze can’t hide this national park’s beauty!

If you’re in the area, I highly recommend checking out this national park as it is one of my favorites!
