Special holiday, chocolate and yum

- Today is, of course, Friday the 13th, but also National Open Your Umbrella Inside Day. The link has other "zany" holidays. I totally missed National Napping Day on March 2.

- Listening to the BBC news at lunchtime and hearing that a doctor in Scotland has proposed taxing chocolate since he thinks it contributes to obesity and has lost its status as a special treat. So hearing that made me think I needed a special treat and stopped to buy chocolate. I wouldn't have thought of it otherwise.

- A fun dinner with friend Leisa at a favorite Thai restaurant where the Basil Spring Rolls were freshly made and served with yummy peanut sauce.

Well, unknowingly we honored that zany holiday! Who knew?

The umbrella or napping? I do love a good nap - but usually it is a sitting-up one with head thrown back on the sofa.

The umbrella!

Umbrellas do have a way of getting away from us sometimes. :)
