3 Glorious Days

I love 3 day weekends. 

Partially because Sunday afternoons depress me.  It's a long story, but it has to do with the way the sky looks in the afternoon.  (Yeah I'm weird)  They don't depress me so much when there's another day in the weekend. 

Three day weekends give you plenty of time to get everything you want done, but also relax at the same time. 

And 3 day weekends make the work week 4 days.  Hence why I am still confused as to what day of the week it is.  But I am always pleasantly surprised when I think it is Tuesday and really it is Wednesday.

Labor Day weekend was a raving success.  Filled with time with family and friends, getting projects done, and relaxing.  I know what you are thinking... Isn't Thursday a little late for a weekend recap?  Probably.  However,  I was too excited about my bread making endeavor and my wonderful news to do the recap sooner.

Friday night, we spent celebrating Braxton's birthday.

{Excuse the blurry picture.  I'm still learning to use the lens I got for Christmas}

Saturday, Phil and I went to the gym (which is nothing short of miraculous), then apple picking, a nap, and dinner with my parents.

Sunday Phil went fishing while I made bread and applesauce.  Afterall, the previous day we got a 5 gallon bucket of apples for $9 and I love applesauce.  Regular and cinnamon with no added sugar.  Again... my hippy-Oregonian-I-should-have-been-a-pioneer roots are coming out.  If only I had a loom and my own kiln...

Also on Sunday, while walking the dogs on Sunday, we walked by a garage sale in our neighborhood and found a cushion-less glider for $15.  I managed to talk the guy down to $12, knowing I could (and wanted to) make new cushions.  So Monday afternoon (after lunch with a very good friend of mine), I made cushions for the seat, back and foot stool of the rocking chair.

It is SO comfy and ready to have me spend a nice long rainy afternoon reading in it.

Plus, Cotton allowed me to do an impromtu photo shoot.  Here's my favorite picture:

I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for a regular 2 day weekend.  I'm sure I'll survive.

Side note... Tonight, we are going out to celebrate my awesome cancer-free news.  I think champagne is in order.


  1. You make your own applesauce! That is awesome, something I've always wanted to try. Glad to see your Labor Day weekend was a success!


  2. That chair is awesome. I wish I had something like it in my office to study in.

  3. you should make a cushion bed for me to sit on when i come over and don't want to leave after i meet cotton (and taylor).

  4. Love the second pic of Braxton, so beautiful. And Cotton, yes, that is such a lovely pic of him, I can almost sense his little spirit :-)

    But I'm most impressed with the chair, wow, it looks great!

    And three day weekends rule, I've been having these for the past 3 years and I will have to give them up in a few months time and I don't want to :-s

  5. Ooooh that wrinkly puppy neck! I love it!

  6. I was raised Mormon so I do a lot of canning and homemade stuff...not what a normal 21 year old does! The apples are falling all over town so instead of buying them, I'm just going to pick them from in front of the businesses!


Let's be friends. I hope your e-mail is attached to your profile! Then I can e-mail you back.
