According to the United States Department of Labor, Labor Day is…

… a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

In honor of Labor Day, HBH will be postponing its regularly scheduled programming until tomorrow. I do hope you come back and visit though as tomorrow’s post takes a slight detour from HBH’s usual tone. Don’t worry, it’s a good thing!

In the meanwhile, here’s what I’ve done/am doing with this long weekend:

Saturday: Cleaning Day | Washed comforter and shams, scrubbed down bathroom (looks like brushing up on recommended weekly cleaning tasks put a bee in my boot!), and washing the exterior windows of my house with an awesome D.I.Y. amonia-based cleaning solution! Yes, my arms hurt after all that scrubbing…

Sunday: Growing Day | Cleaned out the front flower beds, planted anemones (Fred Meyers has a really cute brand of bulbs on sale right now!), and started my fall vegetable garden (more about that later, of course!). I also finally found some pebbles for my troubled Zebra plant!

Monday: Celebrating Day | Fabric shopping for an upcoming bachelorette party (more about this later as well!), catching coffee and The Help with some of my favorite friends, and then cooking up a storm for community group on Tuesday, dinner and lunch (no link – just “plain old” tuna fish sandwiches) for the week.

I hope your three-day weekend was as equally fun whether you played, tinkered, or slept! See you tomorrow…

Psst: That cute fabric comprising the collage above? It’s from Liesl Gibson‘s new fabric line for Moda called Cape Ann. So sweet, right?
