Happy Leap Day 2012!

Hope you are having a happy day on the 'rarest' of days!

I have no sewing to show you today, so instead here is a pic of some gluten free doughnut holes I made last night. 

not bad but a little more 'cake doughnut'y than what i was hoping for

Did you know that even with the extra day this year (as we have every four) our calendar still isn't synched up perfectly to our revolutions about the sun?We still have to add a second every once in a while!

The International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS) is adding a leap second to the calendar at midnight (UTC), June 30, 2012. That’s 5 p.m. PDT or 8 p.m. EDT, June 29, 2012.

For more info about Leap Year, Leap Day, and Leap Seconds, Earth Sky has a nice little post with some good info or you can check out the IERS homepage linked above. ^_^

Happy Leap Day!
