Labor Day

It is okay to borrow something you really like from someone else's blog, right?  Well, I'm going to do it anyway.  This is a little poem from the Gooseberry Patch blog.  It's cute.  Oh, and I think you should go and join their blog.  They just started it a few weeks ago and they already have one of their yummy recipes on there! =]  They will also be having craft ideas and decorating tips.

Yay for Labor Day!

Top 10 Things We Love about Labor Day

Big pitchers of homemade lemonade
with raspberries and mint

Hometown parades complete
with horses & marching bands

Splashing around at the pool
for the last day of the season

Potato salad, corn on the cob
& fresh-picked tomatoes

Sun-warmed grass and cool shade
before the leaves fall

Messy ice-creamed faces
smiling in the sunshine

Cookout with family & friends
in the backyard

Tall sunflowers & hollyhocks
nodding in the breeze

Toasting marshmallows & squishing
'em into yummy s'mores

Watching fireflies, dreaming of
Fall, right around the corner

I am grateful for a holiday weekend to spend with my family.

I agree, Amanda. I would say I trust every singe woman there that night. I would not be afraid to call on any of them if I had a need. It's wonderful having so many friends that you can count on!
