Presidents' Day

I'm old enough to remember when we celebrated Lincoln's birthday on February 12 and Washington's on February 22. But the Uniform Federal Holidays Act of 1971 designated one day--the third Monday in February--as Presidents' Day, honoring all who have served as President of the US. Some might have had it as a holiday, some had to work.

Since I'm retired--ie, I don't have to leave the house for work--most days are about the same for me. How about you? What did you do yesterday? Let me know.

I did not have to leave the house yesterday, either, but Dear Husband did. So I took advantage of the quiet and wrote and edited, then chilled and read a good book.:-)
