What’s Up in February -

The most noted holidays in February are Ground Hog Day, Valentine’s Day and President’s Day, but there are a few more. As I did my search on, there were a couple of events that I was quite surprised that were not listed on the calendar; International Networking Week, Feb. 2 – 6, and National Wear Red Day, Friday, Feb. 6. If you search through my blogs you will find a blog on National Wear Red Day.

I like all the fun days like Bob Marley Day. I could use some sun, fun, and relaxation, which is what I think about when I hear reggae. In fact I turned on my CD player yesterday as I was cleaning the shelf it sits on and guess what. To my surprise and delight there were raggae CD in the player already. I finished my chores to the sounds of reggae. Let’s hope that General Beauregard Lee, our resident Groundhog for Georgia, doesn’t see his shadow tomorrow. I’m ready for some sunshine and warmer days.

Another fun one is Mardi Gras. I love New Orleans. Would love to visit again. Love the town, the food, the fun. I haven’t been back to New Orleans since Katrina. I’ll have to add that to my bucket list.

Oh and another one that’s not on the list, Race Week, for those that follow NASCAR. Race Week starts Feb. 8 with the running of the 51st Daytona 500 on February 15. I’ve been to a few of those. Need to add that to my bucket list also. I would like to go back again someday, but I think I like the July race there better. February’s weather is unpredictable and is usually to cold for me. I remember in all the years we went to Daytona, there was only one year that I actually got to wear shorts and a t-shirt. I had to go buy some because I had quite packing them.

So here is February’s list. Hope you enjoy and find something to celebrate and send a H.U.G., Heartfelt Unexpected Greeting, to someone.
