Make it a pawsome day
April 11th is National Pet Day 2021. National Pet Day was established in 2006 by animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige. She wanted to spotlight the joy pets bring people and focus on the many pets waiting in shelters for homes. To encourage people to adopt rather than buy purebreds, the term "Don't Shop! Adopt!" was created. Having a pet is good for your health; it lowers your blood pressure and sweeps away loneliness.
Cupcake from Jilly'sOn Monday, I heard that Jilly's had sent cupcakes for Crown Center residents, so I went downstairs and selected this pink one with a strawberry on top. Jilly's is a "cupcake bar and café" serving "eats and treats" across Delmar, half a block away. They serve lunch Monday-Saturday and brunch on Sunday. Thanks for the sweets, Jilly's!

Yeah, added to my Kindle, even though I have a million books I should be reading in order to free up my bookshelves for the physical books I already own. I'm only slightly exaggerating.
