Today is Labor day-Monday, September 2ND.
This past Saturday, September 1st was my Grandpa's birthday.
Yesterday, Sunday, September 2ND, we had a rather impromptu BBQ.
Only 34 people showed up. :)
What I love?
We all labored yesterday. We all brought or prepared meals for someone else.
We all enjoyed spending time together. We all had wished we didn't have to leave.
We Labored with Love, the gathering of friends and family. Different sides of family, different groups of friends, and it all worked!
It was so nice. I was sad when it ended last light later into the evening. I think my house was sad too-like me, she likes a lot of activity. Gives her things to take her mind off-like my tooth. Have you noticed I haven't complained about it once? I was so preoccupied with getting this last minute BBQ together, I didn't have time to think about it hurting, and I didn't take any either..
I got the best kind of medicine instead:
Soulful conversations with family and friends.
BEAUTIFUL Day it was! The weather was balmy and crisp, the tree's of our yard shadowed the different tables that were arranged.
Grandpa B worked the BBQ:
We had 11lbs of Meat,
32 sweet Italian sausages, and 34 hot dogs.
Greek chicken salad.
Cold Meat Pasta salad-THANK YOU!!! YUM!
Garlic Parmesan flat bread with a crab meat spread.
Pepperoni, cheese and crackers.
Veggie trays.YUM!! Thanks!
Veggie Chopped Salad! YUMM,thanks!
Strawberry butter crumbled jello delight.-thank YOU!! it was so good!
Fresh Tomato's and Green Pepper from a garden. Oh my the sweetness of the little tomato..you didn't even need it sprinkled with salt, it was delicious.
Baked Kielbasa bacon wrapped yummers.
Delicious Baked beans.
Chips and Salsa
Our famous family drink that was invented by Bigdoggs side of the family-which we debuted yesterday with our network up here-and it was a smashing hit.
I'm not listing my entire menu to make you jealous, and there's so much more too, but what my main intent was, is for those that have bbq's to go to today, and for some reason you woke up in a bad mood and now you don't want to go, does that give you a reason to go?
