We have an extra day this month and as of now I have no idea what I will do with it. Any ideas?

I agree! I could always use an extra day to work on more crochet. That's what I will be doing.

I wrote an article about this. You could make a time capsule or write a letter to be opened on February 29, 2028.
By the way, people born on February 29th are called Leaplings and there is a special group just for them

I remember on that sitcom The Middle, Sue Heck, the daughter, who always had the worst luck, was born on Feb 29. LOL
Not a big sitcom person, but I catch them rarely

Growing up, I had friends, sisters that were born four years part, both on February 29th. What are the chances?!

Thanks all for your good ideas. I will probably spend my extra day sowing Swiss chard seeds in two large galvanized tubs and piddling. For you who are not acquainted with the term piddling, it means doing a little of this and that with no order or logic.

I'll probably be doing what I usually do . . . a walk, Bible reading, a bit of crafting, etc.
Nothing exciting.

CeeJay, the most exciting thing for me these days is watching Annie chase a stray cat across the back yard. BTW she never catches one.

Sara, we have lots of deer (mule deer) come through our yard and around the house. So we watch their comings and goings.
We even have names for them. For the bucks their names are according to their antler points. We have one who only has one point on one side and a broken antler on the other. His name is "One and a Half". But we have "2 by 2", "3 by 4" and "4 by 4".
And there is a doe and her yearling fawn (doe). They are "Molly and Polly".
I saw "3 by 4" outside the bathroom window one day, rubbing his antlers on a young aspen tree. He was just a few feet away and I opened the window and firmly told him to "Stop that!". He did and he ran off.
They are hard on trees, shrubs, etc . . . but we enjoy watching them!

I didn't get any reading time after all. My daughter is visiting so we went to a nearby succulent nursery and spent a couple of rainy hours there. We had a yummy sushi lunch and since she was a dollar store virgin (I didn't know there were any of them left) I corrupted here and took her to the dollar store.

Vanessa a.k.a. Audra Rose,
I love the idea of the time capsule! My husband, daughter and I have been trying to come up with an idea for something special for the day. This may be just the ticket!!

No plans down here for me. Always glad to have an "extra day" to enjoy however it works out!

My extra day is finally here and it's raining so no outside work today. Instead, I am readying food and my house for my 82-birthday lunch tomorrow. I've invited my two sisters, and we will enjoy a lunch of salads and sandwiches with cheesecake for dessert. No way will I be cooking on my birthday.

How is your extra day going?

Happy Birthday Sara!!! I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating with your two sisters. Much happiness to you.
I spent this extra day making butter, cottage cheese, and working on yogurt. I should run the vacuum, but that does not sound like fun.
