It's close to the end of the month, and most challenges are wrapping up. Over at the BBArtisans team blog, Edi (of Memories for Life) brought us a challenge called Month of Love. Come to the Monthly Challenge Link Party and see what everyone created.
One challenge I always enjoy seeing is the Etsy Beadweavers (EBW). My friend Rose (of RandomCreative) is on the team, so she always has the link available. This month's challenge was all about nests - click here to get a better view of all the beautiful jewelry and other beaded items.
This year we have a Leap Day on the 29th. Next Wednesday. Want to do something special? What about watching a movie, called “Leap Year“? It’s a romantic comedy about an Irish tradition that "allow" women to propose to men on Leap Day. A little sexist, if you ask me, but it looks like a fun story. Here's the trailer:
It's on sale (new) at Amazon, for as low as $4.10. Or you can always rent it through Netflix or see it on HBO.
But what's leap year all about? The simplest explanation I can give is that it's a year containing one or more extra days. It's supposed to keep the calendar year synchronized with the astronomical (and seasonal) year.
Thirty days hath September,April, June, and November;All the rest have thirty-one,Excepting February aloneWhich hath but twenty-eight, in fine,Till leap year gives it twenty-nine.
