Labor Day Weekend Acrostic

We’ve had a great Labor Day weekend. My husband Dave always teases me about writing acrostics but here’s mine anyway. 

L- lunch with my good friend Wendy at Oakridge Nursery Tea Room

A- amazing meal at our friend Rudy and Sue’s house- Sue is a consummate cook

B- being brave enough to submit an article to a paying market I haven’t written for before

O- organizing all the materials I brought home from Hong Kong to finish writing my book, packing them up and getting them ready to ship back to Hong Kong

R- reading the latest offering in the Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith. This one is called The Double Comfort Safari Club

D- delightful Skype visit with our older son, his wife and our grandson

A- a new watch bracelet and new Teva sandals were two shopping purchases this weekend

Y- Yes I’m getting excited about our upcoming trip to New York. I started doing research on restaurants, museums and tours

W- writing my Carillon column about five women I’d nominate to be immortalized in a statue in Steinbach, the city where I grew up, because of their important contributions to their community

E- enjoying our first meal at our younger son and his wife’s new home since their wedding in July

E- eating a lovely lunch at our daughter-in-law’s parents’ home after attending morning worship at their church

K- kitchen time making a big batch of turkey chili soup for next week’s lunches

E- entertaining my brother and his partner. They came for dinner and told us all about their recent trip to Myanmar, formerly known as Burma

N- Netflix subscription treat. Dave and I subscribed to Netflix this weekend and I enjoyed the  French movie My Afternoons with Margueritte

D- double visit- both Friday and Monday with my Mom while she was having dialysis in the hospital.  We always find lots of things to talk about.


I didn’t do much labor on Labor Day weekend, but I think that’s the idea anyway. 

We sure did lots of eating
