Labor Day

The first Monday in September is Labor Day and is dedicated to the American workers!  Something which we should be celebrating daily for the difference they make in our lives! We celebrate them today and thank them for all they do for us.
The first Labor Day was celebrated in New York City in 1882 but that is not when it became a national holiday! Who created the holiday might be unclear but it is something we celebrate proudly every year.
When Labor Day rolls around, it always marks the unofficial end of summer which flies by once Memorial Day comes and …


I’ll Have S’more of That

s’mores from whatscookingamerica.net
The smell of a campfire can instantly lift my mood, bringing back happy memories and warm feelings. Friends and family huddled around a fire telling stories and drinking hot spiced cider is one of the most comforting fall images I can think of. And it doesn’t get much better than snuggling on the couch in front of a log crackling and blazing in the fireplace.
And what would an open fire be without a s’more in hand?
So as we turn the corner to winter, with the first snow looming over our heads, there comes a gadget that will allow …


Good bye Summer!

How quickly summer comes and goes! A recent visit to the supermarket shows that they are ready for Halloween!  Yes I am afraid to say Halloween is in the air while children at school are still writing papers on what they did this summer!

Holiday music …


Here’s to a stress free holiday!

The holiday season starts earlier each year.  We are getting use to the stores being decorated not after Thanksgiving as was the norm but in September.  Fall flies by and before you know it Thanksgiving has come and gone. Then the time between Thanksgiving to Christmas seems to go by just as quickly. Let’s admit it there is a little stress involved with the good holiday good cheer!  There are so many things to do and places to be on top of your normal schedule.  How do you handle it all and still enjoy the holiday season?  I wish I …


Farewell Summer! How Did You Get Here So Quickly!

It feels as if yesterday was just Memorial Day Weekend and I had the whole summer ahead!  Now here we are at Labor Day Weekend; how did Labor Day get here go quickly?
I wish you all a wonderful safe holiday weekend full of fun and sun!  I would love for you to share with me how you spent this last weekend of summer!
It was a wonderful summer with great weather but wished I had more time at the beach and a better tan.  I had a list of recipes I wanted to try but never got the chance to do …
