NATIONAL GET UP DAY – metaphorically speaking, today is a day to get up, dust ourselves off and give it (whatever IT is for you) another go. January was National Skating Month so today is approprately named. Stories of triumph can be shared at WeGetUp.com or on social media #GetUpDay. Its all about perseverance in the face of challenges. We are never alone.
NATIONAL BAKED ALASKA DAY – amazingly, I saw a Baked Alaska the other day and thought to myself “Wow, someone ordered a Baked Alaska. Never had one of those.” It is essentially a base of sponge cake, with vanilla icream and topped with baked meringue. I adore sponge cake, could live on ice cream and LOVE meringue. I MUST HAVE BAKED ALASKA!! Road trip!!!!
