I don’t remember much about celebrating Labor Day as a kid — except It was the end of summer and school would start the next day. So, I probably did the usual things I did in the summer. I’d lie on my back on the lawn and stare at the clouds slowly passing. Ride my bike. Read. Watch TV. Labor Day was an ordinary day. Those ordinary days sound like sheer bliss.
Today I went for a walk with my husband. Then I had quiet time with kitty. She’s getting used to me putting on her harness and leash. The first two times I tried it she ran and hid from me for about 24 hours. Now, we sit outside for 15 to 20 minutes and listen and watch. She sits on my lap or I place her on a bench with a low wall where she can watch the quail and butterflies. When she was an outdoor cat in California, she would always prefer to sit along a wall. It kept her safe from the dive bombing mockingbirds.
I’m liking this quiet time, too. I makes me stop with the screens, books, etc. and just sit and reflect enjoying nature.
What do you like to do on Labor Day? Did you have any traditional celebrations or meals?
Not much of a Labor Day celebrator. No traditions or anything. However…I am a big fan of new beginnings and I always consider September to be like that!
Yes, we view September the same way.
I was happy to have the day off! I slept very well last night.
That’s wonderful! It’s nice to have a day off.
Yes, it is! I might even write about this day as something unique and excellent happened!
It is still in the works, so maybe next weekend, it will be a sure thing!
I’ll look forward to reading it.
Happy Labour Day! I didn’t do much and just spent some time at home relaxing.
I relaxed and read almost an entire novel. Thanks for commenting.
What a nice and relaxing day!
We don’t do much for Labor Day, so it was a quiet weekend. What is the weather like in September in Arizona?
We have lows in the 70s and highs around 100 degrees. I’m waiting for cooler temperatures.
Wow! What a variance. Are you ready for the low temperatures?
I’m curious to see how different the weather is from my last 35 years in Palm Springs.
