We have some errands to do and then relax for an easy day.


I hope you all enjoy your Sunday.

Not much going on here, Sugar. Hubby is in the kitchen making breakfast! It smells divine! We will be here all day with no Labor Day plans, except cooking out on the grill: Rock Cornish game hens marinated in Jack Daniels' mesquite marinade. We will have wild rice, corn on the cob, and fruit shortcake.

What are your plans for today? I don't think we will do too much. I go back to work tonight. Tonight is considered my holiday, so at least I will get time and half for doing it!

Tomorrow, I will sleep some and then in the afternoon, we will head to our neighbor's house, for a Labor Day picnic. They're supposed to be having a big party, so it sounds like it will be a good time. I'm going to make my buffalo chicken dip (it always goes over well!) and chocolate chip cookies.

Well, I am off to try to get caught up some here and then get some housework done here. We may run out to my parents later on too - to get cornstalks down, that way we can decorate for fall later on in the week.

Have a great day. I'll be back later. Talk to you all later on. God Bless and keep smiling!

The weather here today started out cool and is supposed to be in the high 80s--getting close to my kind of weather!

No big plans for today. That's okay, because the weather wouldn't cooperate anyway!

Yeah, I would need a week to recover after that.
