Good morning on this beautiful Labor Day. In the United States, Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.
Canada's Labour Day is also celebrated on the first Monday of September. More than eighty other countries celebrate International Workers' Day on May 1 as their holiday dedicated to labor. (all info from Wikipedia}
There are all kinds of survivors in this world, but some are just so unique. Last year, I had a pot of purple petunias on the steps by my door. Somehow, one tiny seed dropped to the ground, and found a tiny space to hibernate in through the Winter and Spring. Once Summer got here, this tiny seed began to grow through the dried leaves on the ground. It went unnoticed until a couple of weeks ago when it produced a gorgeous fuschia colored blossom.
When Joe was weeding and cleaning some of the yard, he decided to make a flower pot to go around this beautiful little plant to keep it safe. It's sort of like a gift from nature.
Today, all of the dwarfs and Pogo and I are just going to enjoy a quiet, restful day. Pogo has already had his turkey treat from Joe, and his breakfast, so he is a very happy little camper. Shortly, I will do some more work on one of my crochet projects. I think I can finish it today. Yeah!! It's a yellow shawl, and it's quite pretty.
Last night, I spent a little time on the internet researching different sewing machines so that I will be able to pick out just the right one for me when the time is right. DIL Janet will be buying one too. I think we will both be wanting one that is computerized and very smart. Smart enough to do most of the hard work for us. Ahh, we are such dreamers!!
Well that's about all the news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
