I love Labor Day weekend. It’s so nice to have a three day weekend to end the summer and kick off fall. I even baked apple pumpkin bread for the occasion, and got a pumpkin spice frappuccino at Starbucks. I’m finishing off the three day weekend tomorrow by playing a concert at the local VA Hospital with one of my bands I play with. The fall promises to be a very full, but very good one.
I played two concerts last weekend, and saw the new Simon Pegg/Nick Frost/Edgar Wright film The World’s End yesterday. It’s a great movie. If you’re a Shawn of the Dead fan, you won’t want to miss it.
This coming Wednesday I start taking Latin at Harvard Extension. I’m both excited and a little nervous, but I’ll be taking it along with an awesome work pal, so that has me really looking forward to the class.
One last thing: Labor Day weekend passing means that the public library will be open longer hours, including weekend hours again!
