Happy Labor Day

Just wanted to wish all of you a Happy Labor Day… here in America we celebrate Labor Day, the first Monday in September. It was a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. (Taken from http://www.dol.gov/opa/aboutdol/laborday.htm)

Hope those fo you who got today off enjoyed it. My hubby worked until 1 then came home and we ran errands and did some more chores around the house. It was nice to get things accomplished, but it seems once we get one project done we find three more. Oh well, at least we won’t get bored. 😉

    Labor Day is 1 October this year here in New South Wales (an Australian state). For some mysterious reason each state in Australia celebrates on a different date. I think the US way of celebrating it all together makes more sense. What I’ve never understood is why it isn’t on May Day (1st of May) in the US like it is through most of Europe. Anyway, I think it’s nice to know it is one of the few holidays that is celebrated almost globally.

    It was raining here on Maryland’s Eastern Shore most of the day and we did not put out the flag. First time in awhile since we missed…..

    We have the same project problem at our house, too! I have a list of unfinished projects and want to do projects on the refrigerator. Happy Labor Day!

    We also worked on Labor Day, but it was all good. The house is clean, the lawn mowed and trimmed, 14 pints of salsa in the basement and vegetables under control. It doesn’t seem too much like work when it makes you feel so darn good at the end of the day!

      Hubby worked at his job then came home to work around the yard and house. I agree when you get a lot acomplished around the “farm” it makes you feel so GOOD 🙂
