Labor Day Recap
We had a Labor Day Cookout/Birthday party for Hannah on Monday. There were chicken wings and sausages. Beer and Mojitos and hamburgers and hot dogs and, of course, chocolate cake. All the kids and grandkids came over, plus Don and Lois.
The guys played horseshoes and the kids played bean bag games and the rest of us sat around and chatted. There were terrific gifts for Hannah, including handknit socks from me. It was a really fun day.
But you’re just going to have to trust me on that because I didn’t take a single picture. That is, I didn’t take a single picture until I took this one at the end of the day.
Plans to take over the world continue apace.

She looks so intent! Good work.
You go Lois!!! I am still bummed about the rainout . . .
I think it’s the best days that never get photographed – too busy living and having fun to even think about it. I’m glad that you had such a great day after what must have been a very long week. 🙂
Oh, and happy belated birthday to Hannah!
Bwahahaha! I’m always on the lookout for convertees and new brainwashing techniques.
OMG. My aunt told me yesterday that I could have my grand grandmother’s wheel. I’ll pick it up tonight! As of tonight! I’ll have a WHEEL!!!!!!
OMG. My aunt told me this weekend that I could have my great grandmother’s spinning wheel! As of tonight, I will have my own WHEEL!
Ah…another one succumbs… yay!
Taking over the world, one bobbin at a time….
Resistance is futile. You will be aspinnilated.
You are very, very good!!
How is it possible that I’m 14th again? ::weird Twilight Zone sound here::
I LOVE to play horse shoes. We have a few horse shoe parks here in our town. I need to take the kids over there or set some up in our back yard. So fun. 🙂
Sounds like a great time. I think you should be in charge of recruitment or something. Spinners of the world unite.
Hello! I just came to check in on your moth shawl and read the past few days’ entries. I’m so sorry about your father, and so impressed by all the loving family you spend your time with. Thanks for giving me a little perspective back.
Sounds like a lovely day – I bet your mental snapshots are clear. 🙂
Is that your mother-in-law? How awesome! 🙂
Too funny! Just make sure she doesn’t walk off with the wheel.
Sounds like you had a great Labor day!
Another spinner! Another, and another, and another! Go Carole!
