The Weekend


Pink firework burst caught on my cell.

Did you have a nice weekend?
We did..a nice mix of work around the house,
visiting with friends, flopping on the couch,
eating good food and even going to see fireworks.

The US Senator John Kyle who was the founder of
Labor Day many, many years ago was actually 
  born in our little village, so we do it up big
 as far as the holiday celebrations!

  5. My weekend sounds much like yours, except the fireworks part. Did a lot of grass cutting, weed pulling and tree trimming and then dock sitting and boat riding. And way too much food. Arck! I'm so full...I might start having some fireworks of my own. HaHa!!!

  7. I was wondering why the fireworks but you explained it well.
    We had our picnic yesterday. It wasn't really a Labor Day celebration, but it made the weekend feel complete.
    Today I went to work like any other Monday and it was good.

  8. It was my weekend and my holiday to work, and that's ok. It becomes the norm when you do it as long as I have. :) We had a nice quiet evening and I have tomorrow off!
    That firework looks like a heart!

  9. Don't know if I've ever seen a pink firework before - so pretty. I was just investigating Labour Day a few days ago and read about John Kyle. I wondered if your little nook did anything to celebrate and now I know.
    Other than a few necessary errands, I hid in the a/c all weekend. Tooooo hot out.

    1. Nascar was on during the fireworks and when we had friends over for dessert. I caught the
      last bit of it, though.

  11. What a beautiful and long weekend.
    Mine was quiet: helping my doughter to tidy up her room before leaving for Spain this morning and Indian dinner with friends on Sunday.
