Make It From Scratch #53 - Oh for an extra day!

It isn't fair, I tell you, it just isn't fair. The calendar gets an extra day every four years, so why can't I? Yes, I know technically we all get an extra day too this Friday, but really does it feel like an extra day? No, it is just another Friday, only different because it happens to February 29th. Oh the things I could do if I had an extra day....

I might cook all day. I could make some family favorites:
Gran's Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Ginger Water
Spaghetti Casserole
Cereal Muffins / Bread
Chicken Fried Chicken

Or I might try something new:

S'Mores from scratch
Homemade Sweet Potato Gnocchi
Grape Nuts
Pork Potstickers With Tangy Ginger Lime Sauce

Perhaps we would do fun and educational things with the kids all day:
Go fly a kite or sit and sew
Refashion a Pair of Jeans Together
Get Good Library Books with Little Ones in Tow
Make Your Own Fingerpaints (Wholesome Handprint Goodness)
Find more uses for shredded paper like Make Your Own Kitty Litter

I would enjoy a day to get a head start on the garden. First I'd start with compost, and then I could make Biodegradable Seed-Starter Pots for the seeds that should be arriving any day now.

Tim would probably like to help me Care For My Kissing Tool

Or maybe I could spend the day dreaming, planning and researching.
Common Expenses To Avoid To To Live Frugally
GM Sugar -- Coming this Fall!
Creating A Dream

All my whining and wishing will not give me an extra day to do all the things I want. I mean a true extra day where all the world stops and waits for me to catch up. So I will have to be content with a February 29th that is just another Friday with a normal day's responsibilities. Or maybe we will just toss the normal aside, and enjoy a day with some of those fun activities above.
How do you plan to spend your extra day?
