Did you know: “Father’s Day in the United States is on the third Sunday of June. It celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make for their children’s lives. Its origins may lie in a memorial service held for a large group of men, many of them fathers, who were killed in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in December 1907. A woman called Sonora Smart Dodd was an influential figure in the establishment of Father’s Day. Her father raised six children by himself after the death of their mother. This was uncommon at that time, as many widowers placed their children in the care of others or quickly married again.”.
To celebrate and honor my father and father-in-law, I made them some eye masks. Manly flannel eye masks. Made with love for the men who never who never stop working long enough to take some much deserved naps!
In case you are wondering what Jon received today – he’s getting space cleaned out in the shed for the beer-making project! He already has an eye mask, which he loves. He also received his favorite candy, delivered by his favorite little girl. Sophia decided that she likes to shake the boxes…they make a most excellent sound!
I also made blueberry waffles this morning – yum!
