We all know that today is Groundhog's Day
and the 14th is Valentine's day
Yesterday, the first was National Freedom Day. This is not to be confused with Burn Your Bra Day, the date of that escapes me at the moment.
The 12th is the date of Abraham Lincoln's birthday, the 22nd was George Washington's, but for some reason years ago it was decided to celebrate them both under the name President's Day on the the 15th.
The 21st is Single Tasking Day and later in the week, the 26th is For Pete's Sake Day
and the gemstone is the amethyst. The amethyst is most easily recognizable in the first photo, but do you recognize it uncut and unpolished?
I love gemstones. When I have all my unfinished projects here done, or in my next reincarnation, I plan to study gemology. If you are thinking that there is time for that to happen in this lifetime, you don't know me as well as you think you do.
Happy February for any and every reason!
P.S. If you got notice of a second new post that isn't showing here, it is because I meant to hit post options and schedule it for a later day, not hit Publish Post. You'd think I'd learn! Can I blame this on it being Groundhog's Day?
