Labor Day weekend...

DH has been off for 5 days...
and we have tried to get things done around here before harvest starts up...
one of our baby watermelon...

Mr Wiggles...
the weather here has been hot and nasty...
too nasty to be out 99% of the time...

my coming project for halloween...

the carpets have been shampooed...
a few things moved around...

laundry, there is always laundry...

a got 2 baby blankets finished for some friends of our...
they are expecting their first grandchild...
a baby boy...

we got our blood work done on Thursday morning where DH works...
the company pays for it to get lower insurance premiums...
and its free for us...
they will mail us the results and we just take them in to our doctors...

I have been having problems with my laptop, too...
the battery needs replaced, but it started over heating and shutting down on me...

I got a can of air and blew it out without taking it apart and its doing better...
still need to take it apart and clean it out really good...
after the kittens leave...

I have 2 that need to go back to the rescue...
one is going up for adoption from here...
and we are keeping one...

they have been free ranging in here for 3 days now...
no kennels and they are doing really good...
we are past bottles and soft food...

we have been scrubbing floors, toilets and poop boxes...
not a glamorous way to spend the holiday...
but much needed...

got the fall coats and jackets washed and ready to go...
because it won't be long...
before we are going to need it...

been in the mid 90s here with one more day of it...
cold front will come through and cool us off a bit...
I am ready...

hope your weekend was a fun one...
and safe...
;0)
I will be around to see y'all shortly...

Happy Labor Day, Tete. I haven't visited blogs in a long time. Today was the day!
You have some really great pictures here. Glad you got so much done before the season starts.
I have a feeling you won't be with some rescues for long! xo Diana

We did not do too much. That was fine with me, still cooking cleaning and laundry, I wonder how 2 people have so much laundry! Anxious for the cooler weather. I feel like now time between now and the christmas will be just a blurr!

Hi Tete, Your photos are always wonderful to see. Looks and sounds like you have been mighty busy preparing for a change of season. Love seeing Wiggles. Such a pretty cat.
Have a great week.
Hugs, cm

Hi Tete! I haven't talked to you in awhile! Your Labor Day weekend sounds like mine. Ed and I along with my sister and her hubby Tony were going to visit one of the state parks down by you, but.....it was just too hot for hiking. I don't enjoy hiking in 90+ degrees with humidity, so my sister and I went through our crafty stuff. We traded some things and put the rest into a pile to be sold at the scrapbook garage sale in October. So basically a boring weekend filled with house work and laundry. Really disappointing....., but once the weather starts to cool, we'll make it to out to a few of our beautiful state parks. Sending good wishes your way for good numbers regarding both blood tests. My wellness check is in November. I'm hoping for good numbers. Also great news about the babies! May they life wonderfully happy and healthy lives!

We do what we have to do... Not all holiday, over holidays. We don't. :-)

Another day of 90 here too. Enough already...

Doesn't it seem like there is always something to do around one's place. I hear you on litter box duty (a never ending thing around here). Mr. Wiggles was cute in that shot. I'd love seeing photos of the kittens. There were loads of wonderful photos here today. I enjoyed viewing them. - Good deal to get BW done for free. Hope the results were good.
