My Labor Day Itinerary

Labor Day 2009

Ahhhh, Labor Day. The first Monday of September is always one of my favorite days because I celebrate by doing all the things I’d rather be doing when I’m working. Although my worldview has changed dramatically as I’ve embraced being an entrepreneur and making my own schedule, I’m excited to celebrate Labor Day nonetheless. I thought it would be fun to share this year’s itinerary, which looks significantly better than a day packed with meetings:

??? Wake up with no alarm clock.

9:45am Yoga with Zaira at Yogaphoria.

12:30pm Walk across the Delaware to New Hope for Lunch with Brandon and our friend, Jon, at Martine’s or The Landing; I haven’t decided which yet, but wine will be involved.

3:00pm Nap.

4:30pm Bike ride with Brandon and Jon to Stockton, NJ. Perhaps we’ll have a drink while we’re there.

6:00pm Grill out to celebrate the last day of the summer season: hamburgers and potato salad with watermelon for dessert. Sweet tea or beer is the biggest decision of the evening.

7:00pm Relaxing on the back porch until bed time.
