What Happened to Labor Day?!?

Remember as a kid when Labor Day was a big deal with a 3-month weekend, barbecues, and ice cream? When did it turn into catching up on chores for the upcoming work week? Luckily, I've been invited to a dinner party Tonight, so that will brighten things up!

Finished another block for my journal quilt (and another signed strip too!). It's a lot less wonky in person.

I did find time for some fun. Here are some favorite pictures from the Carpenter Lake Nature Preserve in Southfield from yesterday. I love the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone!

I couldn't get a good picture of Carpenter Lake - the deck was in shadow yet the lake reflecting so much light.

Happy Labor Day everyone!




  1. Let me know how you get a 3 month weekend .. I could have used some of those along the way :)
