It’s that time of year again! If you’ve been following Ribbons for a while, you might know what today is…. It’s Abby Day! (in this case, I have to say Abby instead of Abigail, because it works better)
That’s right, it’s Abigail’s birthday today, and I just have to do another blog post all about her.
So, imagining Abigail’s birthday was a national holiday (because it feels strange that the rest of the world isn’t celebrating this day with us)
What to eat: Well, Abigail is the raisin fairy, so just throw spices, pumpkins and raisins into your favorite dish and there you go! Don’t forget to make a pot of chai or London Fog, or if tea isn’t your thing, a cup of coffee once per hour should do.
What to wear: We sew a lot, so generally, if there’s a holiday, there’s an outfit for it. (I am wearing a sort of special dress today) Anything brown will do, but it is essential that your outfit has pockets. If you have something brown, but it’s lacking pockets, feel free to get a patch of fabric and sew it on top for a pocket.
What to do: Go for a walk. Pick your favorite place and take a nice, 9 hour hike. Be sure that you bring along a nice pillow or tablecloth so you can stop and sit for a while somewhere nice. It is essential that you bring something to read or write, preferably something that matches the surroundings.
If hiking isn’t your thing, feel free to stay home and write and make soufflés. Be sure to have a cat in your house. Better yet, see if your local pet store has an owl or fox.
Most importantly: eat lots of dark chocolate and stay up late.
Doesn’t sound too bad. Maybe we could make September 29th National Author’s Day.
OK, I have to admit, I’d only thought the blog post out this far. I thought it would be funny caricature-ize some of the things that make Abigail unique and loveable. But now I’m not quite sure how to complete it. So, if in doubt…
Finish with Abigail’s new favorite song!
I love you, Abigail! You are the best Abigail ever in the whole wide world!
I hope you continue to have one of the best days and weekends ever! (I don’t want to restrict this to being the best day ever, in case something better comes along)
May God bless you all the days of your life, as much as you are a blessing to me. Love you!
