Lingerings of Spring and Looking Towards Autumn

Hey Ya'll!
Are you feeling it like I am?
You know...the last days of summer fading fast 
as the reminders that the new approaching school year will soon be here.
For Us, it's only a week away. 
What becomes of the kids of summer?
I start feeling a bit melancholy. 
I know that apple cider's and fall festivities are just around the bend.

Summer ends
and school begins
Good-bye dirty feet and dirty faces,
Autumn arrives,leafy drives,
Hello apple cider and candy corn.
On to the new season!

Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend is the grand finale of the summer. How lucky was I to end up with a long weekend off from work? With Friday and Monday off I should have multitudes of thing accomplished or a weekend packed full of fun but being out of work also means being short on the paycheck. Getting real crazy couldn't be in the plan. The weather has also been gloomy; so it's been more of a lazy weekend. I've spent the down time with the old man(husband) and my two youngest youngens'(children). All the older kids found events to fill up there weekend.

I have a few ideas for today that should be both relaxing and fun. I've got my supper plans already worked out. We had a turkey in the refrigerator that the old man had picked up on a deal so it may seem untimely but the turkey is in the oven. I'm thinking roast turkey, sticky rice, gravy and biscuits. Peach ice cream will finish the meal off just fine. I think if a person has a problem with that meal they probably are way too spoiled. I also wish to make my way over to Larry's to checkout any new old finds he might have. Larry runs a little shop that he fills with items from estate sells and auctions. The shop is my favorite place to browse. I don't always bring something home but I always want to. I'll take the camera with me and share some pictures. There is tons of yard sales around here on Labor Day and also a big sale in the VFW field.

I'm going to get moving. I'm looking forward to the day. I can't wait to share my day with you. Thanks for stopping by and as always I wish you a blessed day.
