"When I was a little kid, I thought a red-letter day was when you got a red letter in the mailbox. Pretty dumb, huh? It finally dawned on me that a red-letter day is when something terrific and wonderful happens to you. Usually something unexpected."
Later on, Dan thinks that a red-letter day is the kind of day that ought to "have a tag on it. It could read:
This Is A Red-Letter Day
1. Dress appropriately
2. Practice looking humble
3. Comb your hair, in case of photographers"
Now this book is not about a red-letter day for most of the book. But, it's still really good.
And now on to the point....
I'm having a red-letter day!
First, I was featured on Amanda's blog, Teaching Maddeness! She has her Budding Bloggers Showcase Series every Wednesday, and today was my lucky day. :-)
I feel really lucky to be able to connect with such great bloggers...thanks, Amanda!
Secondly, I won a giveaway! Molly at Lessons With Laughter had a 1,000 Follower giveaway and I won a $25 Amazon giftcard! Hooray!
Well, I'm off for the evening. But...stay tuned for tales from the National Western Stock Show, a Colorado Avalanche game and a recap of our MLK day activities!
