National Peach Melba Day – French Vanilla Ice Cream with Peaches and raspberries
Desert was on the agenda for after supper today. The Peach Melba was basically french vanilla ice cream with peaches and raspberries. I thought is was delicious and I am definitely going to have this again. It is really quick and easy to make. Here is the recipe: https://www.breyers.com/us/en/recipes/easy-peach-melba-recipe.html. #Peach Melba Day
National Sticker Day – Paint By Sticker
Keith and I celebrated National Sticker Day by completing a page in the paint by sticker book. Who would have thought that there is an adult sticker book. It was really fun but hard at the same time. Reminds me of when my children were younger and played with stickers. I purchased it on Amazon. There website is https://www.amazon.ca/. #Sticker Day
National Rubber Ducky Day – Convoy
For National Rubber Ducky Day, we watched the movie Convoy. We rented it from the library. It was a 1978 comedy. Trucker Martin “Rubber Duck” Penwald (Kris Kristofferson) and his buddies Pig Pen (Burt Young), Widow Woman (Madge Sinclair) and Spider Mike (Franklin Ajaye) use their CB radios to warn one another of the presence of cops. But conniving Sheriff Wallace (Ernest Borgnine) is hip to the truckers’ tactics, and begins tricking the drivers through his own CB broadcasts. Facing constant harassment from the law, Rubber Duck and his pals use their radios to coordinate a vast convoy and rule the road. Watching what comedy was like back then made this movie hilarious. #Rubber Ducky Day
National Korean American Day – Kim’s Convenience
Kim’s Convenience is what we watched for National Korean American Day. Since the episodes were not very long, we watched a few. It’s a very funny sitcom about a Korean family that run a convenience store. Netflix is where you can watch Kim’s Convenience. #Korean American Day
National Stephen Foster Day – The Life and Times of Stephen Foster
The Life and Times of Stephen Foster is the book I read to celebrate National Stephen Foster Day. It’s interesting how somebody’s life would have been so different if he lived in a different time. He was a musical genius born at the wrong time. It’s an easy read and quite interesting. I purchased the book from https://www.thriftbooks.com/. It’s a great place to order discounted books whereby you don’t have to spend a lot of money. #Stephen Foster Day

Let’s see what tomorrow’s adventure will be…
