Everything sounds wonderful! Except for those who have to work! I think most folks do the 'end of summer' thing, but was just thinking there's no 'beginning of fall' celebration; and fall being my favorite season,.............thought it deserved its own little party!

I'm not sure what we're doing yet - last minute; oldest son has a new 'squeeze', so may have them over for - oh, I dunno -sushi, maybe?

Labour day is a very happy time of year for me because I love the fall and winter. I don't eat tomatoes (except for canned) through most of the year because I just don't think they taste very good, so I really gorge myself at this time of year. There's nothing better than a BLT with fresh, local tomatoes.

We were supposes to spend the weekend at my FIL's camper at the lake but some things came up & we're not going to get to. I guess we'll just cook out here with a couple of friends & maybe go fishing or something.

That's a good point, marm! Fall's my favorite too. I guess while I don't have any sort of organized celebration for it I celebrate in my own way, pulling out my cool weather recipes and starting to cook up a storm inside after a couple months of running the oven as little as possible.

I LOVE that first day when you have to pull out the heavy blankets and get to put on jeans and a sweater!

I can really relate, thumper! We've almost got our wood supply in for the winter. Still have to cut, split and stack it. Next we have to get 4 tons of pellets in for our pellet stove. Lots of chores before the snow flies! Up here we usually have snow by Halloween.

PA, I love that time of year, too; but living here on the coast, I'll have to travel up to Elfie and Rainie's territory in the Smokies for those chilly mornings!

It'll be a BBQ at home for us this Labor Day. I love that the grocery stores put so many wonderful cuts of meat on sale for that weekend! I'll be stocking my freezer!
