Happy Leap Day!

First off, check out Stephanie's blog about weird leap year traditions. My leap day has been uneventful, I just went to work and worked on my last Soundtracker entry. I can't believe February is finished today and Soundtrackers is done for another year. Here are the poems and songs I shared today:

The Harpists’ Tea Narrated by the Mad Hatter and New York Memories

The day of the tea and he already stood me up;
and it was my first tea without Nan to add,
but now as an employee, I helped plan—

a day in Wonderland, we travel down the hole,
tea with the Mad Hatter and the fancy white hare;
and the friendliest senior women, so comical.

One of the women’s sister was from New York City,
we discussed my upcoming birthday trip next week—
Central Park is a must! As is Time Square! For eats

that Lebanese place sounds good! The harpists begin
and she whispers childhood memories, so fond
told by the harp. Much fun; gladness he stood me up.

Yes, I ate a bug, I ate several bugs,
they were crunchy, chewy, salty, sweet,
and I would do it again in a heartbeat!

However, yesterday I did have a pre-leap day celebration. I enjoyed the outside with Mimi. It was in the upper 50s yesterday, the croci (crocuses) have begun to bloom, and it was beautiful out. Despite the snow at the end of the week, it looks like spring is around the corner!

How did you spend your leap day? Hopefully it wasn't anything wild and crazy. :)


  1. Those crocuses are lovely!

    Expecting snow in Vermont tonight. Crocuses may be a while...

    1. Thank you!

      Weather has been all over the place in Pennsylvania. Today was warm, temps will drop tomorrow, and by Friday we should be getting snow. I guess that's typical March weather, though!

    2. In like a lion, out like a lamb... March is definitely not my favorite time of year.

  2. Hi, dear Jessica!

    Thanks for sharing the highlights of your leap year day. I enjoyed the bug chef's rap. You ate more bugs? Any different species this time?

    The groundhog's prognostication seems to be coming true. Spring is coming to Pennsylvania and it was great to see you and Mimi enjoying the milder outdoor weather.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!

    1. Hi Shady!

      Bug Fest happens every August - the video is from 3 years ago, the pictures are from 2. I ate a meal worm, cricket, and something else. Just a memory poem. :)

      Today is supposed to drop and snow on Friday. Crazy weather! But, yes, I think Phil was right!

      You too!
