Did you all have a great Labor Day weekend? We definitely did! It was a nice change of pace from our normally travel/project/activity filled weekends, although we managed to get in a few things between relaxing.
Saturday morning I did some more spray painting for a project I'm working on in our bedroom.
Then I set up our giant kiddie pool, since I'd been waiting all summer to use it, but we just hadn't had the time. We've had this thing for several years, and I scored it at the end of summer for $20. Not bad for a 12 foot by 4 foot pool!
My husband made fun of me though, and wouldn't come in the pool. He thinks it's dumb, but I didn't care. I had a relaxing afternoon anyway without him, reading out in the pool, while he stayed inside and watched football.
Sunday morning I went to a Flea Market at the State Fairgrounds with my friend Katie, and scored something awesome, which probably deserves a post of it's own. Apparently the Flea Market shuts down for the entire month of October for the State Fair, so I might have to make another trip at the end of the month; we heard several vendors talking about all the sales they're having, and will be having because of the time off.
Sunday afternoon we went to a BBQ at my brother in law's house, since we didn't get to spend last weekend with them as we'd originally planned. Then, Monday I had to work for a few hours (dang work crunch time is still trying to kill me!), and we'd planned to go on a hike in the afternoon, but didn't end up going because of rain showers.
So instead I finished reading the final book in The Hunger Games trilogy. Which I really, really enjoyed. Obviously, since I started the first book on Saturday, and finished all three by Monday night! They were very well written, and have some interesting parallels with some of today's societal issues, while being very engaging and entertaining at the same time. At the end of the first book, I was wondering how the author was going to stretch the story out into two more books, but it just got better and better. Definitely recommend these books if you haven't read them already, although it seems like just about everyone has read them by now.
What did you do over labor day weekend? Did you get in any "laboring" or did you spend it relaxing? And have you read the Hunger Games yet?
