Happy Groundhog Day!

Today is Groundhog Day February 2. The day each year when we wait for the famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil to emerge and provide a forecast for the late winter and early spring ahead. If he sees his shadow, we will get six more weeks of winter.  If he doesn’t see his shadow, we will get an early spring.

If you haven’t heard Phil failed to see his shadow on this Groundhog Day 2013.  According to the Groundhog legend, that means an early spring.  YEAH!!!

Watch Groundhog Day tonight!

Treasure Hunt Valentine Fun

If you’re looking for a last minute idea for Valentine’s Day then look no more!

This is a fun “Treasure Hunt” idea.  All you do is make a start sign along with the start of some red, pink, or white yarn.  String the yarn all over the persons bedroom or family room.  Up, around, over, through, in, out, etc.  At the end of the yarn is a gift of some kind.  If you have more than one person you are doing it for then use a different color yarn for the different people.  I did this once for my kids in our hotel room when we were away for Valentine’s Day.  They loved following the yarn and finding the gifts.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
