Labor Day Wishes

August Sunflowers

A happy, fun and safe Labor Day Weekend to all my friends out there. And to those from all over the world who don't have Monday off--the same wishes for the weekend!

And a question for you creative types: do you work or not work, regardless of the day? Do you give yourselves a break? Or is your creative endeavor a break in itself?

Happy Labor Day weekend to you, too! And thanks for posting the beautiful flowers. Just looking at them made me feel more cheerful. :-)

You're welcome, Caryn! And the sunflowers grow wild everywhere here, so delightful (and good for the birds).

Normally, a day is a day for me - I don't stop writing by the calendar. Although now that I'm living with someone who works a somewhat-regular work week, I DO take weekends and holidays off. Once I get buried in a story again, tho, I might not do so - we'll see.

Happy Labor Day! I have close friends moving to McCall, so yet another reason to head down your way, Conda!

Ah, Beth, I would have a similar experience because my partner works 8 to 5, BUT he's also a writer--so weekends are partly for writing too!

And yes, when you get into the w.i.p., everything changes.

And McCall is only 2 1/2 hours away! We'll get together one way or another!

Happy Labor Day!
Since I'm writing today, I guess that's the answer. I write when I can...not when I'm moved by the Muse but when I can get my butt in the chair.
I admit on weekends and holidays I'm apt to slough off and do housey things or just go play.

I work or not work irrespective of the day. Some days, of course, give more opportunity to work, but the day is not important - unless it's a special family day.

As you may have read in one of my previous posts, Kathy, we all need to take a break from time to time to renew, refresh, and just plain rest!

Conda V. Douglas said...

Good point about "family days," Dave, I've just had a few of my own...and if it truly isn't work, but a passion (and from your blog it seems to be, for you)why take a break?

Conda;

The weekend is finally over. We had a great time. Our oldest daughter and her husband came to visit and we went to brunch at a small restaurant - cafe really. After that we had cake, ice cream, opened presents, and generally had a good time.

Love the flower shot.

Happy trails.

Hi, Swu. Sounds like you had a blast for the holiday! Birthday presents, or?

Glad you love the flowers. And I love how sunflowers grow wild everywhere here, so cheerful.
