Welcome to Weekend Confetti!
Here you will find your weekly dose of interesting and merry miscellany that you didn’t know you needed to know. I hope it adds some joy to your weekend! Cheers!
Tonight is International Bat Night! (No, I do not make this stuff up.) Bat Night was started in the UK but is celebrated all over the world.
Apparently, bats are an integral part of our ecosystem. (They had me at ‘eats 1200 mosquitos AN HOUR‘.)
There are more than 1400 species of bats (many of them endangered). Find out what types of bats exist in your region.
And just because: Bat Origami
Tomorrow, August 29th, is More Herbs, Less Salt Day. We have all heard that we should be mindful of salt. (Here is the full 411 about salt and sodium.)
For a few ways to replace salt with herbs, check out these easy-peasy salt-free seasoning blends!
One of my big challenges in the kitchen is I never have the right herb/spice a recipe calls for. So try this helpful list of substitutions.
And for the really ambitious, here is all the info you could want on growing your own herb garden. (Or a shorter version for those of us who only want one pot.)
Tomorrow is ALSO National Lemon Juice Day. Did you know that lemons are good for you?
And I would feel remiss if I didn’t give you the recipe for the Best Lemonade Ever. (Almost 3000 people can’t be wrong.)
Things to consider when dealing with unsolicited advice. (Very insightful.)
20 Regrets from People on their deathbeds…these will change your outlook. I’m so glad I read this!
And lastly, words matter.
What is a Kindness Intention?
It is a way of keeping kindness more intentional in my own life by setting a weekly goal of kindness. And hopefully inspiring you to do something kind in your own world!
Happy Weekend, Joy Ambassadors!
