Labor Day weekend

Hats off to my husband, who has spent most of his Labor Day weekend working around the house and helping me with the kids!

Do you have big plans for tomorrow?

NO! We don't have a single thing planned, not one place we must be. And I think that's just...glorious!

We (like Daiquiri) are planning exactly nothing. And we are giddy with anticipation :)

We'll be watching the hurricane and checking in on my mother-in-law who lives in Louisiana. Probably grill something. Rest, sort of. ;)

What a blessing of a husband. Also, those pears look yummy!

My two older kids went on a Labor Day weekend trip with the grandparents. We have a toddler still, and then my husband and me. We're having a very laid back weekend. If anything, we're going to the mountains.

What a great husband Meribeth! We have just been doing small things around the house this weekend. Today we are relaxing and might go swimming.

After the weekend we've had...it will be such a joy to sit home and relax. I've actually decided to take the whole week off - no school and as little day to day stuff as possible!

My daughter and I are helping my husband to celebrate his 40th birthday. We are 4 1/2 months new here in TN (moved from CA) so we feel mighty blessed that we have some new friends to invite to our bday bbq. We'll setup in the front yard under the oak trees since it's supposed to be pretty hot today. Wish I had some of those yummy lookin' pears! Thanks for your blog, I appreciate it.

Enjoying the Labor Day the same as you. My husband has just finished repairing the grill, and air conditioning line and is off to get a few supplies for other small needed repairs. I am so thankful for a husband that can do these things, Oh, and I'm getting ready for the largest yard sale I have had in quite some time. Have a blessed day! Jackie

My husband & son have been working so hard around the house too--some very unpleasant repair work under the house & now replacing the pipe from the spring to the pond. I am so thankful too that my husband can do these things, and that my teenage son is such a help. I've been getting a lot done too, but things I want to do: picking blackberries, baking bread, making jam (and sauerkraut!)...and of course doing the laundry resulting from all of the grubby muddy work the guys are doing. We'll throw a steak (good sale!) on the grill later...

My husband spent labor Day replacing a leaking kitchen faucet ! Yeah!!!
He saves us hundreds by doing the "labor" himself .
We bought the faucet at Loews . I did not have a Loews discount coupon , but I did have a competitors coupon , which they honored for a $20 savings !
We ended the day with homemade "saltless" ( my dietary restriction ) burgers , they were really yummy thanks to Mrs. Dash seasoning.

Meredith - I've spent the entire weekend organizing my children for their first day of school tomorrow - From donating 10 bags of used clothing to scrubbing the bathrooms down -
All while putting bbque for dinner on the table for supper - I've managed to meet all of my goals - You must've been in secret prayer for me - I do appreciate - I had lots of energy - and still do - thank you!

Love,
