Labor Day
My birthday in 1943.
This year it will be Thursday.
The gardens are changing getting ready for fall.
The colors will change to green, browns, and golden orange.
I forgot red and golden yellow.
My favorite time of the year.
Today my husband and son Mark will finish cleaning
the chicken barn getting ready for 100 new chicks.
In 7 weeks we will have 100 fat hens for the freezers.
They will be shared with Kathy, Mark, John, us
and a few folks at the food pantry.
Our freezers are almost full.
Just applesauce to do and potatoes to dig .
Both of those in October.
I will make them a lunch of ribs
homemade mac n cheese and some home made pizza.
The best part will be leftovers for Tuesdays lunch.
I plan to work on my new  quilt "October"
In memory of my mother .
This was her birthday month.
Also my daughter Kathy's birth month.
Enjoy your holiday.
I will.
