Happy Labor Day to our US members! To those who don't know what it is, this is the day we honor the workforce that built our country and keeps it running. But like other summer holidays, it has sort of become National Barbecue Day. It's the ceremonial Last Day of Summer, though the calendar tells us that will be 22 September this year. In some places, kids will go back to school tomorrow after a long summer break (though we always went back in late August).
For me, it's an extra day to get things done around the house, since I was out of town earlier in the weekend. I'm going to sit down and go through my papers, get the junk mail shredded, and my finance program updated. I'll put the flag out. And the big chore for the day will be to put away the summer décor and put up the autumn décor. For some people, today will be the beginning of pumpkin spice latte season. I've never had one myself, as they are loaded with sugar and probably not vegan. But I certainly enjoy the transitioning of seasons, especially the cooling temperatures. I'm a light-jacket-weather kind of guy.
Happy Labor Day!1
