A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

Lake Michigan September 5 2016

Today is Labor (or in Canada, “Labour”) Day.  It’s a day of resting, relaxation, and (hopefully) doing absolutely nothing.  I can verify that is exactly what I am doing today.  Well, the only thing I am doing is writing this post to tell you that I’m doing absolutely nothing; which, in and of itself is something, isn’t it? Oh honestly, even when I am trying to do nothing that’s something!

Regardless of where you find yourself on this 5th day of September, I hope you find time to have a break and a few laughs to lighten up the ‘laborious’ day! 🙂 *LOL*

    It’s weird celebrating Labor Day now that I’m more or less retired…

    Doesn’t the spelling difference make you nuts? Frankly, I’m annoyed with whoever had the brilliant idea to alter the words. Britain, Australia and Canada use the correct spelling. Our spelling and dialect are wrong… I’ve worked the last three days, no holiday for me but am off the next two days. Hope you’ve had a good holiday. ❤️

      Hi John! Oh yes, I am constantly having to ‘switch’ my brain to the “American” way of spelling words! In fact, at work sometimes I am reminded not to use the ‘u’! *grin* I agree; Canada, Britain, Australia, et al are spelling correctly by using the ‘u’ in many words. Well I am so sorry you had to work (I worked 6 days in a row so you are in good company, my dear)! And yes, thank you, I am having a lovely holiday, my Michigan neighboUr!!! *biggest grin* Hope all is well in the desert! Cher xo

  5. Usually work just the same, Labor Days, or any other holiday. If something needs to be done then it gets done. But that’s OK with me, I take off
    any day I want.
