Happy Labor Day!

September 1st, 2008

Happy Labor Day out there for all you readers. Hope you’re enjoying your weekend. We’ve had a busy weekend here at Chiot’s Run. Sunday I potted up some hydrangeas (that were started from cuttings 3 weeks ago) and we built one more raised bed. Today, we plan on laboring part of the day in the garden, mixing up soil for the new raised bed and perhaps building more, if we’re energetic.

Before you start feeling sorry for us working all day, we did have an afternoon & evening out yesterday with our friends. First we headed down to 50th anniversary party at a camp we all worked at. It was a beautiful sunny day. If you’ve all been wondering what I look like, here’s a self-portrait.

After a few hours in the sun, we headed up to Cleveland to go to The Pub, an interesting little English restaurant with all kinds of frosty brews on tap (the front of the menu says it all).

Our friend was excited about finally being able to get a real black and tan*.

So what did we get for dinner? Fish and Chips of course and they were delicious (homemade tarter sauce was also spot on!).

A good evening was had by all. So what fun things were you up to this weekend?

*Remember to have a designated driver, Don’t Drink and Drive.

    Nice post with cool photos…

    I haven’t done much this weekend. Just repotted some rosemary and parsley…might make chocolate truffles, though!
