Labor Day

Since moving to Minnesota this day always turns my mind toward winter. Labor Day brings the mental checklist of things I have to do between now and the end of October. This year was no different.
  • Bring the boat off the lake
  • Pull in the dock and lift
  • Plow under the garden
  • Store the lawn furniture
  • Put away the hose
  • Get Christmas lights up
  • Cut the grass one last time
  • Fertilize the lawn
  • Plant spring bulbs
  • Schedule the snow plow guy
  • Store the hammock
  • Find the snowshoes
  • Get plenty of blue stuff for windshield washers
  • Crank up the snowblower
  • Set out the jack o' lantern and other fall stuff
It is also the day when I eat my one Cinnabon of the year.
