Want to know how quick and easy it is to write a list of thankfuls? Imma gonna set my timer and write ten, just to show you.
1. My watch has a stop watch feature.
2. I'm not so anal that I need to change "timer" to "stop watch" in the first paragraph.
4. My husband does all the laundry.
5. Cooking projects with two and three year olds (don't knock it 'til you've tried it).
6. A hot, furry cat lying on my legs while I type (just kidding, except in the winter, it's pretty nice).
7. Biscuit Day at school.
8. Fall growing ever nearer.
9. "American Rust" and I don't know what streaming service it is on, but it stars Jeff Daniels.
10. Finally Friday!
Three minutes, thirty-nine seconds. Now you can't say you don't have time to write a Ten Things of Thankful post! Please do and join us! The link is open!

I totally went AWOL last weekend. It wasn't intentional; the weekend got away from me.

This weekend (well, Monday, to be exact) is Labor Day in the US. To most of us, it marks the unofficial end of summer and is celebrated with parties and swimming and other outdoor activities.
The original reason for the Labor Day holiday originated in the late 1800s during a time of 12 hour work days, 7 day work weeks, unsafe working conditions, and child labor at the height of the Industrial Revolution. Labor unions multiplied and the strikes and rallies they organized helped to bring some reform to working conditions, but it also brought much unrest and violence. In an attempt to repair some of the emotional damage, Congress passed an act to create a legal holiday called Labor Day, and it was signed into law in 1894 by President Grover Cleveland. It is always celebrated the first Monday in September.
There's another fun fact about Labor Day you should know: I was born on Labor Day, and every year on my birthday, my mother always liked to remind me that her Labor Day that year was ruined by being in actual labor and pushing out a 10 pound baby.
Are you thankful you have a job? Or thankful you don't? Are you thankful for a three-day weekend? For getting together with friends or family to celebrate the end of summer? Share your thankfuls with us this weekend! The link is live, and we would sure love to have you!
