International Sloth Day - 2020

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Other than Halloween, one of my favorite October holidays is International Sloth Day, which occurs each October 20th.

Because we are experiencing a pandemic year, it is one of the easier holidays to observe. International Sloth Day requires absolutely no company or friends to celebrate it.  There's no need to worry about masks or social distancing!

Earlier today, when this holiday reminder came up on my calendar, I made certain to get out early and do a little grocery shopping.  I took the suggestion of Roy Kelley, who a few days ago, recommended Trader Joe's BBQ Chicken Pizza.  I brought one home. 

This afternoon, I finished garden clean-up in my yard, and other small tasks at home!  I am now ready to root and forage in my bed tomorrow.  There's only one thing missing - Rain!

Roy Kelley - I'll be having it tomorrow, on Sloth Day 2020.  

Bob Crane - I don't know if it will be fun, but hopefully it will be relaxing.  My body is a little sore from a whole lot of gardening.  I'm going to climb on top of my heated massage pad, carefully placed on my couch, grab a quilt, and the TV remote, and veg out!

Myrl, since March 13th  our Pandemic Shut Down in California, I must have celebrated International Sloath Day quite often, I just did not know that it was an actual day to truly commemorate it:))Endre

Sloths look interesting, but I have never seen one in person.  I had no idea they actually had their own day that was observed, haha.

Hello Myrl!  If ever there was a year that needed an "International Sloth Day" it certainly is 2020.

Hello Myrl - while I am familiar with the word, like Brian England I don't recall seeing an actual sloth.  Hmm.  The day is still young. . .

Michael Jacobs I saw a sloth not too long ago on a tv segment about the Wild Life Zoo here in PHX.  It was so interesting watching how long it took and how he actually crawled across a tree branch. Very cool!

International Sloth Day. Who woulda thunk?  A day to celebrate an animal that is synonymous with laziness.  Hmmmm.   I do hope you enjoyed your BBQ chicken pizza.

Myrl with each passing year I am finding myself moving at the speed of a Sloth more and more.

Wow who knew Myrl Jeffcoat there was an international sloth day (except you of course). Wish I had gotten the memo earlier this am.  Guess I'll have to wait till next year to go into sloth mode!!  I did meet a friend for a lovely bruchetta and a  chilled glass of whitewine....that was slothy in a nice kind of way. Does that count!!

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat - If I hit the couch after dinner, it's sloth time! However, I celebrate that just about every day of the year unless there is a deadline to make.

I wish I had known it was International Sloth Day yesterday.  Would have spent more time kicking back.

Hi Myrl:

Funny, but I've never heard of this holiday. Perhaps there should be one every month!

Hope you enjoyed the piza - I'll have to try it...or perhaps make one at home!

Myrl Jeffcoat - Shucks! For my  punishment for not being on AR regularly, I missed a very important date "International Sloth Day," on October 20th! They are so cute and adorable! I saw them once at the zoo. 

I'm kind of a cheesy person when it comes to Pizza. Yes! Plain old cheese pizza but I just might try Trader Joe's BBQ Pizza for a change. 

I enjoyed your post, even though I was late. I hope you have a very happy weekend!

Oh man, I missed it. Lol. That's a sloth for you, missing the dates. Pizza is always a fun food choice. D

Who knew?!  International Sloth Day.  I do try to find time to do a little household chore when things are sloth-like.  Today I cleaned the freezer.  Generally, when I'm mid job - my phone is inspired to ring.  :)
