Here in the United States, yesterday was Labor Day. Most of us have no idea why Labor Day is a holiday, but we really like that it’s a three-day weekend. For those who are curious, check out the history of Labor Day HERE.
For my part, I spent a lot of time outside with family and friends, and no time doing writerly things. We had a lot of fun and got a lot done. Check it out!
On Monday, my cousin and I took our kids for a ride on my favorite bike trail.
We also babecued and invited over lots of family and friends. We had a full house with about a thousand kids running around with water guns. I didn’t, however, think about taking pictures. You’ll just have to take my word for it when I say we had a lot of fun.
On Sunday, we re-purposed an old bed frame and built a fence out of it. We’re going to plant a grape vine at the end and let it travel along the rails. How cool is that?
Also on Sunday, a friend stopped by with her new baby. Wyatt was in heaven. That boy LOVES babies!
Saturday, Lily and I finished the base of the fort. I ran out of studs, so the project stalled for a few days. Thankfully, Tara brought home some more studs for us on Monday, so we’ll resume our work today!
On Friday (which isn’t technically the weekend, but I’m going to count it anyway), we finished the short fence that will keep the chickens contained in a smaller section of our yard. They are not sure if they like it or not.
While we worked on the fence, the kids prepped for the impending zombie apocalypse.
That’s it for our big weekend. What did y’all do? Anyone read anything good? Write anything (good or otherwise)? Or were you all outside like us?
