Happy Garfield the Cat Day!

Happy Garfield Day!

The Indiana connections with Garfield are that Jim Davis, the cartoonist who created Garfield was born Marion, Indiana and grew up in nearby Fairmont. The Fairmount Historical Museum has a tribute to Jim Davis and Garfield. However, most of the museum is dedicated to James Dean, who was also from Fairmount.

Mike suggested eating lasagna today, which is Garfield's favorite food.

Happy World Environment Day!!

World Environment Day

We started off reading Earth Smart (DK READERS) and Save the Tree!: Little Green Nickelodeon (The Big Green Help: Wonder Pets!).

I showed Lily the MSNBC Live Video of the Leak and the pictures of the sad, dirty animals in the Gulf of Mexico. I showed her one of the brown pelicans taking a bath.

Recycling is another great way to help the environment! Lily and I got some of our old clothes together to donate to the American Legion Clothing Bank.

Happy National Donut Day!!

To celebrate, Lily and I had donuts for dinner. We used Grands® Jr. Refrigerated Biscuits. I poked a hole in eat biscuit and stretched them out. We fried the biscuits, then dipped them in powdered sugar.
