So here we are, it's Labor Day* and starting Tuesday I no longer can break out my whites. Wait, like I trust myself enough to buy (and wear!) anything white, besides T-Shirts. But we are at what many believe to be the last week of Summer. Schools are starting, the air is becoming more cool and we have just a little bit less sunshine everyday. But let us not forget that it is still a three day weekend! Yoo-hoo! As for us, we have almost nothing planned. Quite a rarity I assure you. Here is a sampling of things we MIGHT do, if we feel so inclined:
- Take a walk around the Stone Arch Bridge, one of our very favorite spots
- Visit the parents
- Pick some apples
- Have a bonfire
- Drink lattes (really, we do this every weekend, but these are the last of summer!)
- Take some pictures
- Generally be lazy and enjoy some much needed time off
So, in the spirit of trying new features out for this here blog I am excited to add polls. A poll you say? Yes, polls, for all of you out there in cyber-land that would love to interact, but are to Mid-Western to. I will feature a different poll each week and we'll just see where it takes us from there. I have a few ideas of things I can do with these polls, but we'll see what the response is first.
Shall we? Your very first poll.
Have a safe and happy long weekend everyone!
* A little Labor Day history. Labor Day became a national holiday in 1882 ,"It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country." Well deserved I think. It's just too bad that not EVERYONE can have the day off. But then again, no one asked me. :)
