Enjoy a day of rest

posted in Just life |

Happy Labor Day! Hope you’re able to enjoy today with family and friends, doing something fun outside, or simply relaxing wherever you find yourself. I admit, I don’t have the details of how the unions initiated this holiday or when it started, but I am grateful for another day to enjoy the fleeting warmth of summer. Labor Day always carries a tinge of sadness for me, as I inevitably feel the summer went by too quickly—this year, in particular, summer flew by because so many days in an already-too-short season were lost to rain. Now that I’ve reached a certain age, I understand it is better NOT to spend Labor Day in traffic, and so, if we go away for the weekend, we always return home Sunday night. This year was no exception. We spent the weekend in Bar Harbor, swimming in Echo Lake (gloriously refreshing), sailing in Frenchmen’s Bay, and biking/hiking Acadia National Park. We will spend today relaxing near home and preparing for another busy fall season. Cheers!
