I’ve got short week this week because we celebrate Indigenous People Day here in liberal Massachusetts and I can’t say I’m unhappy about it, as that I’m still fighting a head cold and an extra day to sleep in is quite welcome. I’ll also need the extra sleep to celebrate National Pasta Day this week because frankly, carbs make me sleepy.

National Sweetest Day
“Just in time for its 100th Anniversary, National Sweetest Day encourages everyone to be generous even in the smallest ways. From its inception as Candy Day in 1916, this day reminds us that even small tokens improve the lives of those around us who are suffering or going without. While the day may have begun with candy and sweets, encouraging us to take home sweets to our sweethearts and friends, it is a day full of lessons in persistence, resilience and doing small things in greatly.”
