Evening image


Every so often, a thing will happen and I get an image in my mind. I have located something that matches it on the net. You’ve got to love the internet for searching for images. 😉

and viola, this is the image that has popped in my mind. Hope ya’ll find it as lovely as I do.


had a thought…



I left a reply to a comment this morning on today’s IOTD. Most of the time, these images are geared towards the COTD aka the Calendar of the Day. But some days, I really need an image that I choose for me. Today is one of those days. I have had a split between the IOTD and IOTD Special Edition. I think I’m going to keep those two separate; making the Special Edition to go with the COTD or a birthday and keeping the IOTD for stuff that I really use throughout the day to focus on. When I first started the IOTD, it was with the purpose of an image that I would pick to focus on, or simply view the beauty and use it in a Mindfulness exercise. So starting 1/1/2016, there might be two separate IOTD. 😉 Or I might change the name of the Special Edition to something else entirely. I’m still thinking. lol

General Events:

Falling Needles Family Fest Day
December 30, 2015 in the World

If you have had a real “evergreen” tree slowly dying in your living room for almost a month, you may have noticed the soft sounds of needles falling onto your carpet and your tree skirt of fake snow.

This day is a reminder for those of us who enjoyed a live Christmas tree over the holidays to clean it up and recycle it.

National Bicarbonate of Soda Day
December 30, 2015 in the USA

National Bicarbonate of Soda Day is celebrated on December 30, 2015. Sodium bicarbonate is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Sodium bicarbonate is a white solid that is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. It has a slightly salty, alkaline taste resembling that of washing soda.

It is a component of the mineral natron and is found dissolved in many mineral springs. It is among the food additives encoded by European Union, identified by the initials E 500. Since it has long been known and is widely used, the salt has many related names such as baking soda, bread soda, cooking soda, and bicarbonate of soda.

In colloquial usage, its name is shortened to sodium bicarb, bicarb soda, or simply bicarb. The word saleratus, from Latin sal æratus meaning aerated salt, was widely used in the 19th century for both sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate. The term has now fallen out of common usage.
