What's the weather like where you live as we roll into Labor Day weekend? This is what my car thermometer read this afternoon!!! (NOTE...the reflection of the PINK phone taking the picture.)
Do you have big plans for this special, end of summer celebration?
Two of my buddies and I will meet up to attend a local festival. . .Santa-Cali-Gon Days. It's set up around the historic Square in Independence, MO.
We've made attending that festival a part of the Labor Day weekend for years and years. Looking through all of the craft tents and eating yummy tasting food from a variety of vendors can be so much fun !!
Some years it's hot and sunny. . .as it was on the year this photo was taken.
Other years. . .it can be rainy. . .like it was last year!!
Also, bright and early on Sat. morning, I will be meeting up with my running group to do our longest run/walk yet. . .10 miles. We will only be 3.1 miles away from being able to complete our 1/2 marathon distance after Saturday!!
The temps are predicted to be HOT.....upper nineties. However, we will start out before the sun is totally up, so even if it's in the mid-seventies then, at least we're not running with the sun beating down on us.
We all hydrate well. . .plus we are good about looking out for each other!!
I also plan on attending a party in honor of a great niece's 4th birthday! And. . .I hope we can use the Groupon I purchased some time ago for one of my favorite restaurants . . . it expires in September. It had originally ear-marked for our June anniversary....that didn't happen. Then I thought we could use it for my July birthday. . .again, didn't happen. So MAYBE we can squeeze it in this weekend.
On Monday. . . we just usually "hang out" . . .and enjoy a day at home. . . resting on Labor Day! :)
THE STONE RABBIT and I wish you a safe and happy and enjoyable weekend!!
And GO CHIEFS!!!
Wow. . . they just won their SECOND pre-season game. Maybe. . . just maybe. . .this is a good sign for the team!
