The last holiday before the official end of summer.
And this is a steamy one for sure.
Humidity levels are through the roof so if you venture into the sun, you’ll braise…not bake 🙄
It is a day to celebrate the working person.
A day to ‘not’ work [as long as you don’t work in retail, then it’s a day to go Christmas shopping].
I know, right?
Anyway, since I don’t work outside the home, it is just another laundry day, with the added bonus of baking turtle brownies. (turtle brownies: nuts and caramel in the brownies, um yeah mama)
Baking? Today? In this heat?
Ummm, my indoor thermostat says 68, and as he knows me well…he knows that should his digits read below 68, I shall haul off and punch him in the face!
So yeah, it’s a baking day 🙂
As happens in the summer, more bloggers are out living life rather than inside writing about it, hence, less blogging more jogging. At least it seems so to me.
And while I wasn’t out there jogging (God forbid!) I was ‘out there’.
So Labor Day does tend to remind me that it’s time to come in once in a while and ease back into the fall yarns (get it?) so when winter comes, I’ll be knitting stories with the best of ya!
I don’t have any particular “What I did on my summer vacation” tales to weave, but I do have a snap or two that do paint (crafty eh?) a pretty picture of some of the fun we had.
Like…the time Matty spent back in the lower 48. Three weeks of sun and disc golf and beachin and boozin (ahem) and cousins and Grandfolks and…well, you get the idea
For myself…most of my time was spent in the same places as the boys…I just had my hands on something other than a beer bottle.
[Ah shit, that’s a lie. I had one hand on a bottle and the other on the camera.]
Okay? Geesh! Can’t get away with crap around here!
So my time was spent catching mountains and moonlight…
then rivers, lakes, and lilly pads, roads and bridges too.
I had a couple days where the pickens were slim; a tree and some deer, and an old car pullin in. A whirlygiggly butterfly and dead people’s ground; a downpour and a pond sign for an absconded pond.
But you all know what I’m like, always a barn or two; then Supe with his sidekick, and a damsel lunching, eew eew…
This is a glimpse of what I’ve been laboring with. And if I do say…
Life is Good!
Hope you all had an enjoyable, relaxing, family and fun filled summer.
I look forward to seeing more regular attendance now that Blog U is back in session.

There are some beautiful memories made there Rhonda along with some exhibition worthy pictures
Considering the winter I came out of Tink…it was a pretty darn good summer! Thank you my friend. If you want any, just let me know. They are yours! xo
Love the happy happy tone here!
Coming out of a decent summer, headed to my fav time of year….yeah, is happy happy Jules. 🙂
What a fun – and full – summer! It’s amazing how much actually happens when we are just busy having fun (and with or without a bottle in hand!) And enjoying the moments. As we should! You scared me tho, for a second with your talk of yarns and Christmas shopping. You know you can’t do that to me, right? I can smell the brownies from here…mmm. xo
haha…I was thinking (or counting) this morning while sitting on the porch contemplating my Halloween decorations…then I thought, well shit, I have another two months before Halloween…what the hell’s the hurry? I’m with you BonBon (sadly though, yes they are already setting Christmas in the stores) let’s not rush through the every day moments looking for special ones, ’cause the special is already here. It’s only a matter of perspective! xoxox
I too was keenly aware of my Halloween decor as I put a few things into the garage..and I grumbled as I thought – hmm, better keep those where I can get to them easily enough. NO hurry whatsoever..no hurry. It will all happen whether we hurry or not so how about we just sit on the porch a little longer, eh? I’ll bring the beer. xo
and i’ll bring the wine…for the softer moments. xo
Delighted to hear you’ve had such a tea-total summer 😉 Lots to tell and we look forward to listening. Ours has been rather busy with the usual, jazz and big parties. Not bad but we’d like a holiday to recover 😀
haha…I can totally see how you guys would need a holiday to recover! Find a furbabe to escort to Virginia and come visit!
Now you’re talking!
Love this post….and seeing your fun! Life is good….but I am just not quite ready to part with summer….hanging on a few more weeks! ♥
You likely will have a few more weeks than us…and it’s far from over here too. But…I AM looking forward to the end of it…this heat is a bear! xo
Growling with you. Outdoor pep rally tonite was a beast with the humidity!
Oh, I imagine it was! Hoping for a break soon, for both of us! xo
Well it seems it is time. Cool front is to hit here today. Come on soup and chili! Get ready, girl!
oH, that sounds like a great idea! Come on cold front!
