Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day to my friends here in the U.S. 

I'm celebrating the holiday by not laboring over a post today.  Finishing up a house project this morning and doing the traditional 'end of summer' cookout this afternoon...if Mother Nature cooperates and doesn't rain on us.

Please come by Wednesday when I'll be hosting author Marilyn Meredith.  She's doing a blog tour for her latest book RAGING WATER and she's got a great contest for you.




And there's still time to enter my giveaway for a free copy of Maria Zannini's newest, MISTRESS of the STONE.  Contest ends at 5:00 on Thursday. 



How are you spending your Labor Day?  Are you sorry to see the end of summer or looking forward to fall?


Medical Bloopers for Today:

Patient has chest pain if she lies on her left side for over a year.   (For goodness sake, woman - roll over!)

Occasional, constant infrequent headaches.  (Huh?)

She has no rigors or shaking chills, but her husband states she was very hot in bed last night.  (Um...no comment.)

Last one is good!
Sleeping in today was the first thing on my list. I just got up, so mission accomplished.

Linda G. said...

Happy Labor Day to you, too! :)

Liz Fichera said...

I will join you in the "not doing too much laboring" thing today. :) Have a great day!

LD Masterson said...

Alex - Good job on meeting your first goal of the day.

LD Masterson said...

Linda G. - Thanks

LD Masterson said...

Liz - Actually this stupid home project has been a lot more labor than I'd planned but I'm almost done and the afternoon should be great. Enjoy your day off.

Maria Zannini said...

What is this not-laboring of which you speak?

Hope your cookout is rain-free.

Angela Brown said...

Here's to the last cookout of the summer. Have a wonderful time.

And those medical bloopers...HA!

Lydia Kang said...

LOL on your medical bloopers! Ha ha. I see stuff like that once in a while and it's hard not to laugh!

LD Masterson said...

Maria - We non-homesteaders can do that. No chickens.

LD Masterson said...

Angela - Thanks. It was a good summer.

LD Masterson said...

Lydia - I love to give people a good laugh.

Tara Tyler said...

no labor here either!
describing symptoms is similar to describing whats wrong with my car!

Maryann Miller said...

I spent part of the day laboring over the edits on a book. I would rather start a new book than deal with edits, but such is the nature of the game.

Loved your medical bloopers.

Julie Dao said...

HAHA at the chest pain blooper... happened to me before. Hope you had a great weekend!

Sarah Ahiers said...

I'm a bit sad about the end of summer, but i LOVE LOVE LOVE fall so much that i'm just super excited for that. The food! The clothes! The weather!

LD Masterson said...

Tara - No matter what's worong with my car, as soon as I get it into the shop, it stops.

LD Masterson said...

Maryann - Agreed. Editing is much more like work.

LD Masterson said...

Julie - You laid on you left side for over a year?!?! :-)

LD Masterson said...

Sarah - Football games!! I'm not that big a fan but there's just something about going to a football game.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

You always make me laugh. I am sorry to see the end of summer. I'll try to remember to visit tomorrow.

LD Masterson said...

Susan - Always makes me happy to give someone a good laugh. Hope to see you tomorrow.
