Groundhog Day

***

The groundhog is like most other prophets; it delivers its prediction and then disappears.
~Bill Vaughn

***

Old Groundhog stretched in his leafy bed.
He turned over slowly and then he said,
“I wonder if spring is on the way,
I’ll go and check the weather today…”
~Author Unknown, “Groundhog Day”

***

To shorten winter, borrow some money due in spring.
~W.J. Vogel

***

Alas! must it ever be so?
Do we stand in our own light, wherever we go,
And fight our own shadows forever?
~Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton

***
The trouble with weather forecasting is that it’s right too often for us to ignore it
and wrong too often for us to rely on it.
~Patrick Young
***
Though the groundhog and crocus creep into their holes
It’s Spring, and the almanac shows it;
Though a polar wave over the continent rolls
It’s Spring! And we don’t care who knows it!
~Robert J. Burdette, “March,” c.1888
***
If Candlemas Day be fair and bright,
Winter will have another fight;
But if Candlemas Day be clouds and rain,
Winter is gone, and will not come again.
~Old Rhyme
***
Yesterday was “ground-hog’s day” in many parts of the United States,
and Candlemas day in many other parts of the world.
From time immemorial, it has been a critical day in the affairs of the weather.
The character of the second of February is really of much more importance
than whether the first of March comes in like a lion or a lamb.
The simplest form of the adage is:—
If Candlemas day be bright and clear,
There’ll be two winters in that year.
~Hartford Courant, 1877 February 3rd
***
Finally, a holiday animal we can relate to. While holidays and magical animals go hand in hand,
most holiday creatures are downright demented…. Punxsutawney Phil is different.
He’s just a simple groundhog that pops out of his dwelling from time to time to see his shadow.
He’s one of the guys.
~Flying LlamaFish, “7 Reasons Groundhog Day is the Ultimate Holiday,” 2010, PunIntended.com
***
If ground-hog day was bright and fair,
The beast came forth, but not to stay;
His shadow turned him to his lair,
Where six weeks more, he dormant lay
Secure in subterranean hold—
So wondrous weatherwise was he—
Against six weeks of ice and cold,
Which, very certain, there would be…
~H.L. Fisher, “Popular Superstitions,” Olden Times: or,
Pennsylvania Rural Life, Some Fifty Years Ago, and Other Poems
, 1888
***
To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.
~George Santayana
***
Don’t knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in a while.
~Kin Hubbard
***
Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.
~Maori Proverb
***
Winter is nature’s way of saying, “Up yours.”
~Robert Byrne
***
Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”
~Robin Williams
***
Everybody who knew anything about ciphering was called in to consider it.
A young man from a high school near here, who made a specialty of mathematics and pimples,
and who could readily tell how long a shadow a nine-pound ground-hog
would cast at 2 o’clock and 37 minutes P.M., on ground-hog day,
if sunny, at the town of Fungus, Dak., provided latitude and longitude and an irregular mass of red chalk be given to him,
was secured to jerk a few logarithms in the interests of trade. He came and tried it for a few days,
covered the interior of the Exposition Building with figures and then went away.
~Bill Nye, “Seeking to be Identified,” Nye and Riley’s Railway Guide by Edgar W. Nye and James Whitcomb Riley, 1888
***
In America, paying due deference to the creature’s importance is our national mythology,
it is left to the ground-hog to decide the day, and so the fate of the season.
He is supposed to come out of his hole on that day, and take a look at the world.
If it is a bright day, he will see his shadow on the ground, and, taking fright at it, will run back into his home and stay there.
A fresh attack of winter will set in, and he will be justified in the steps he has taken.
If it is cloudy, he will cast no shadow, take no fright, and gives us no further attack of winter.
~Hartford Courant, 1877 February 3rd
***
Whereas, Today, the 2nd day of February, is the genuine, original and undisputed ground-hog day of our ancestors,
handed down to posterity for many generations; and
Whereas, the same has not been legally recognized by any legislative enactment appearing on our Statutes; and
Whereas, We consider it almost an unpardonable oversight in the party
which has for so many years administered the affairs of this State; therefore, be it Resolved,
That we, the representative men of this State, filled with patriotism and love for the prognosticator of the weather,
recognize this day as “Ground-hog day,” and that legal enactment should fix the date, the 2nd of February,
which shall forever remain without defalcation or discount, as Ground-hog day,
never to be changed by constitutional amendments or acts of any Legislature of this State.
~Journal of the House of Representatives of the 38th General Assembly (Regular Session) of the State of Missouri,
Twenty-Fifth Day, Saturday, February 2, 1895
***
It’s a freakin’ holiday entirely based on the power of a psychic rodent.
If that isn’t the epitome of awesome, I don’t know what is.
~Flying LlamaFish, “7 Reasons Groundhog Day is the Ultimate Holiday,” 2010, PunIntended.com
***
In European folk-lore, the bear is the Candlemas weather-prophet.
~John Russell Bartlett, Dictionary of Americanisms:
A Glossary of Words and Phrases Usually Regarded as Peculiar to the United States
, 1877
***
Every mile is two in winter.
~George Herbert
***
***Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
~Doug Larson
***
***Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
~Anthony J. D’Angelo, The College Blue Book

Tooth Of The Day

Relationship

 

Relationship

***

Falling in love and having a relationship are two different things.

***

“I mean, if the relationship can’t survive the long term,
why on earth would it be worth my time and energy for the short term?”
― Nicholas Sparks

***

“Well, it seems to me that the best relationships – the ones that last -are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.

You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before.

Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is…

suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.”

― Gillian Anderson

***

“It’s no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently

or if your favorite films wouldn’t even speak to each other if they met at a party.”
― Nick Hornby

 

***
The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting,not in hoping, even.
Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was,
nor forward to what it might be, but living in the present and accepting it as it is now.

Happy Weekdays Everyone!

***

Food is our common ground, a universal experience.

***

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

***

“Humor keeps us alive. Humor and food. Don’t forget food. You can go a week without laughing.”
― Joss Whedon

“Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.”

My Moments

My First Snow, Snowman, Ice Skating…

I am a having a moment recalling my first snow…  As you know that Philippines has only 2 seasons… The Wet and The Dry Seasons.  So when I was just a little girl, I dreamed to be able to make my own snowman one day…

And then… it happened:

Here I was in my first strolling in the snow…  I remember that I really did tumbledown right on the ground…  Well it didn’t hurt that much… For me it was an incredible and wonderful experience already! hehehhe

1546446_10152086636254501_960388506_n

Okay so here I was making my  snow-baby 🙂

1501831_10152086635924501_2069546972_n

Cha-charan… hehehe my snowbaby… 🙂
1495496_10152086635639501_736736366_n
Well it did not stop me from there… I went down to the backyard…

Wow! I thought, I just got enough snow to make my first snowman in here! 
1521887_10152086635834501_1580752406_n
Here I was enjoying to make my very first snowman… I was hoping the snow in Lizzie ‘s ( my cousin) backyard would just be enough to make one snowman for me… or else I might be tempted to get some snow from the other side of the fence… hahaha
1533956_10152086635989501_1452933969_n
Yiheyyy! I did it! And not forgetting the hat of Lizzie on it… what a cutie!
1527006_10152086635659501_113982400_n
 
Hayyyy… that sure was tiring but it’s worth it! 
1531675_10152086636034501_447210707_n
See! My first snowman was even smiling from ear to ear 
 🙂
1480719_10152086635679501_390868517_n
Yay! Ice Skating…
I wouldn’t imagine it now how I was able to ice skate in that huge place…

1497667_10152086636104501_687323900_n
See me in the move here?
Well… I wish I could still do this to NOW.. 

 1526330_10152086636229501_821350549_n
Well these were just one of those memorable moments that I enjoyed too much!
Do you have one too?
Have fun everybody! xoxo

Tooth Of The Day

It’s better to stumble along the way, than to give up completely…

In the hope that you’ll make it in the end…. no one said it would be easy,

so every time you stumble and fall

know that you’ll be getting up stronger than before,

with God full of love and mercy to give you a brand new start

and move forward in the light.

Through our pains, God brings growth and new life.
