How did we get so lucky to have three perfect weather days in a row on a holiday weekend? It is rare, and, I guess it is our compensation for enduring such a hot and steamy Summer. I wish this perfect coolish weather was here to stay, but it appears the heat and humidity are waiting in the wings.
For many folks, Labor Day is the death knell to that long respite from school or work, then it is back to the grindstone tomorrow … for others, like me, it was just an extra day to enjoy and a shorter work week to boot, though it will take me most of the week to remember what day it really is.
Did you work or relax on this day to honor workers? I enjoyed a few extra ZZZZZs, then got out the door before it got too warm, and my longish walk added some more miles to my eventual total.
Do you wish we could roll back the calendar and it was the Independence Day holiday instead of Labor Day, the unofficial end to Summer? I do, because, as much as I groused about the heat and humidity, I am no fan of snow and ice. If only we could turn the calendar pages back, but that is obviously not doable, no matter how much you’d like that to happen.
The other day was a milestone for my 500 miles walked and today is yet another milestone – 800 blog posts to date since I began this labor of love, a/k/a “Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy” … time flies, as do my fingers sometimes, and, I continue to marvel that my mind holds such a treasure trove of memories and that I’m able to recall so many of them and spin them into blog posts. Who knew I had so much to say?
Enjoy what precious time remains in this long holiday weekend … soon the sun will set and we may pause to reflect on the season’s greatest moments and look toward the remaining months left in 2016.
Happy Labor Day!
