As the “Office Manager” of Attention to Detail Home Remodeling, (aka “Administrator of First Impressions”) my days are usually full and active.
But today, I am the official representative of my couch.
Yep, that’s right, I have entered stand by mode.
I spent a little time over the weekend brushing up on my American history, that is, the history of Labor Day. As it turns out, the true beginning of this holiday is still hotly contested (as many historical events are) today with no end in sight. The Department of Labor has dedicated an entire page to “The History of Labor Day” and the page begins like this:
“Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
Food for thought, I must say. Interesting to think of all the events over the last century that would lead to a national U.S. holiday.
Without hashing truth from fiction, I’m thankful to have another day added to my weekend. Unfortunately, with unfriendly weather, I don’t believe I will be grilling this evening. On a rainy day like this, ordering in sounds just right.
How are you spending your “extra Sunday” ?
