August 15th is now touted as
- National Relaxation Day
- National Lemon Meringue Pie Day
And since I am patriotic (and try to celebrate as many “National” days as possible), I felt a call to duty.
And although I am now retired, I must embrace National Relaxation Day too. What better way to relax than with a good book. Currently I am devouring the latest in the Spenser series, Slow Burn.
I have read all 40+ of the Spenser books. Originally by Robert B. Parker, they are now written by Ace Atkins since Parker died in 2010.
Today is also National Cupcake Day and National Failure Day. Apparently I am sort of celebrating a failure since I failed to eat a cupcake. I can only do so much.
