Oh yes, summer lovin’ under the milkweed leaf! (If you are not a huge Grease fan, that is where the title comes from.) I saw these two yesterday doing their thing. It was entertaining. This is the G-rated angle. The male is very funny, wiggling his body every so often. They stayed there a long time too. The moment was significant to me occurring on the last day of August. To me, summer ends when school starts, but as I sit here today in 94% humidity in front on a fan first thing in the morning, I sure could use a dip in the pool or turn the a/c back on. I have tried to leave the air conditioning off, and it’s been ok, the nights have been rather cool, but boy, I feel like I am sitting in a sauna. I get to work on taxes later, so I might need to break down and turn it on for a bit.
I hope everyone has a safe wonderful weekend! It’s Labor Day Weekend here in the States. Wikipedia says, “Labor Day is an American Federal Holiday observed on the first Monday in September (September 3 in 2012) that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers.
Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events.”
So, I guess we are either celebrating the end of summer or American workers. I thought it was about fair working conditions. The 40-hour week, 8 hour day. I think most people just celebrate food and beverage. Either way, I am grateful for all things good! Summer 2012 was fun, fabulous, but fast! I am also grateful for happy little lady bugs, with hopefully more on the way!
