LABOR DAY... *Saying Goodbye To Summer*

For Most People, the
 LABOR DAY HoLiDay Weekend
is a way to say **GoodBye To Summer**
September 1st begins a major shift with family routines,
 weather,  flora & fauna...

•Children are back at school, many of my friends - now becoming "empty-nesters"...  •Early Morning Coffee on the deck now requires wiping off the heavy dew...  •Berries abound on our bushes...  •Leaves are changing...  •Squirrels are making a mess of the Oak Tree...

Although here in the MidWest we'll still have many a warm Summer-Like Day well into September, I do look forward to October's "Brilliant Leaf Colors" Cozy Wool Sweaters, Warm Apple Cider, & Random Indian Summer Days...



ViNtaGe Apple Picking Bucket
LoVe F*A*L*L Apple Picking!*!*!
Wisconsin has soooooo many Orchards...




Have a Relaxing
 HoLiDay Weekend!*!*!
Savor Summer's Memories...
Look Forward to creating New Fall Ones...
