It’s the holiday weekend!

This weekend here in the states is Labor Day weekend; first recognized in 1894 and every first Monday in September since.  It is a federal holiday which means a lot of us get the day off with pay; a three day weekend! Woot!  It is meant to celebrate the economic and social contributions of workers.  It also sadly marks the unofficial end of summer.

I’m not quite ready to give up summer yet and have no idea what we are going to do this weekend other than eat some traditional summer foods like barbeque, potato salad and slaw with some peach ice cream for desert.   But truth be told, I’d rather be at the beach like I was when these pictures were taken at Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts (more about that lovely town in a future post).  Have a great weekend everyone and be careful if you are driving or boating.

    Great perspective. Like every holiday, many only know it’s an extra day off. The history or reason behind it is lost in out rush.
    Never forget the laborers ….. bc that the reason we have this day.
    End of summer means cooler temperatures … yay!
    The cycle will continue …. there’s no stopping the “sands of time!

    I’m not ready either, Teri. Summer won’t end for 3 more weeks. Let’s not rush things.
