ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
THURSDAY, MARCH 19TH, 2015
1 DAY UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:35 am
Sunset: 7:39 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
March 19th is Swallows Return to San Juan Capistrano Day. The swallows of Capistrano are a romantic piece of Old California history. According to legend, cliff swallows return to nest at Mission San Juan Capistrano on March 19th, St. Joseph's Day, returning from their winter vacation spot 6,000 miles south in Goya, Corrientes, Argentina.
Every March 19th is a day of celebration, with food, music, and dance.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Spring is nature’s way of saying, Let’s party!
The swallows returning is another sign that Spring is coming. Officially it will begin tomorrow, but it is to be cooler here so it won’t feel very spring like. Still and all, it will be better than it was a month ago. At least there are no 0 degree days in the forecast.
Lots of people are gearing up for Spring break around here. Many will travel to warmer climates just so they can get away from our cold weather. Here at my house, Spring break means we do have a break from the snow.
National Chocolate Caramel Day is also celebrated annually on March 19th. This definitely puts a smile on most people’s face and immediately makes one hungry for some chocolate caramel candy, cake, cheesecake, ice cream, pudding, or any of the other delicious treats made with this great combination
I’ll be celebrating with some Salty Caramel Ice Cream topped with some Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup and thinking Spring. The tulips on the table, shown in the picture above, were a gift for my birthday and will be planted outside. They are a gift that will keep on giving.
I hope you all a great day ! Happy Thursday
COUNTING MY GIFTS

ADVICE FOR TODAY
The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.
