Labor Day is the first Monday in September, always has been, and is not indigenous to the USA. In other parts of the world it's a holiday celebrated as Labour Day or International Workers Day. Here in the US, it signifies the end of summer, not wearing white clothing, (lol), and was first celebrated September 5, 1882 in New York City. It did not become a federal holiday until 1894. Wikipedia has unlimited info if you're interested.
My sister sent me this pic of a squirrel house, outside her window. I fell in love with it and begged one from my husband. Big Daddy built me one and I love it! It has a red metal roof, just like ours..how coincidental, eh?
Is it cute, or what? We used to have a bird feeder with a nylon rope-like hanger, but the goofy squirrel chewed thru it...we know because we watched him do it!
We have had problems with the blue jays eating ALL the peanuts. Don't get me wrong, we like all our yard friends, but the peanuts are for the darn squirrel!! Hello!!
Sorry, no pics of our early brunch guests...but, while I was in the tub, all the dogs started raising cain and wouldn't quit. That usually signifies: the mailman, the UPS man, brick and mortar shop customers, but, NOOOOOOOOOOOO, not this morning. We had 2 lovely dun horses walking down our road outside our gate. We do live on a very busy farm to market road with 18 wheelers, logging trucks, farm equipment and all the idiots that cannot drive under 80 mph! We have horses and mini horses, so the duns crossed the road to visit the minis...meanwhile, big daddy headed out with a can of sweet feed to lure them into our front yard until the owners showed up. They did in just a few minutes, collected their charges and left. Short lived excitement for the mini stallion, lol!
Now I'm waiting for the earthbaby to come over, wahooo! Nothing like a chubby baby to put your life in perspective, eh? Love it.
Whereever you are in the world this weekend, I hope you celebrate just being able to be with your family. If you aren't able to be with your family, I pray you're safe and happy~~Elaine
