Hopefully You’re Celebrating by Not Laboring Today

Labor DayHappy Labor Day! Of course holiday weekends are always something to look forward to when heading into Friday afternoon. If you’re a planner, you might already have a bag packed to hit the road for your anticipated adventure. If you live more spontaneously, you might just be looking forward to the extra opportunity for whatever surprise may come your way, but whatever you decide to do, it’s good to know you’re not alone in wanting to take some time to yourself and relax!

Of course however, that does not imply that we simply brush across the significance of each particular holiday we may, as a country, celebrate. Because today is Labor Day, we’ll focus exclusively on the importance of celebrating the hard work of men and women that came before us, on this day each year.

According to online source, https://www.dol.gov/general/laborday/history, the very first Labor Day began somewhere around 1887 –

“Before it was a federal holiday, Labor Day was recognized by labor activists and individual states. After municipal ordinances were passed in 1885 and 1886, a movement developed to secure state legislation. New York was the first state to introduce a bill, but Oregon was the first to pass a law recognizing Labor Day, on February 21, 1887. During 1887, four more states – Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York – passed laws creating a Labor Day holiday. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 more states had adopted the holiday, and on June 28, 1894, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday.”

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth folks! Summer has officially begun. Though in Texas we’ve been celebrating the start of summer since long before the summer solstice officially began, there is just something about the Independence Day holiday weekend that seems to solidify our desire for outdoor grilling and water sports. So grab your apron, make sure the super-soakers are filled (and hidden from the sun), and go enjoy the holiday weekend – you’ve earned it! Not to mention, what a year it’s been. This year we’ve been tested in ways many of us never even fathomed – between COVID-19 to power outages during the Winter Ice Storm – I think it’s safe to say we’re due for a win. Thanks to the incredible efforts by nurses, doctors, and scientists within the healthcare industry over the past year, we’re finally able to meet up again with loved ones to celebrate the holidays, and I could not be more grateful to them. Whether you’re grilling outside, or planning to shoot off fireworks this evening, we wish you a Safe and Happy Fourth of July! If you have more ideas/suggestions for summer celebrations/activities, be sure to add your comments below – just don’t forget the sunscreen!

Happy Easter Everyone!

Happy Easter 2021 everyone! I hope you had a fun-filled Sunday and a restful weekend. Whether or not you celebrate the holiday of Easter, I hope you still ate some delicious food, and were the first to the cascarones every time. These days, particularly during COVID, are sacred – time spent with family, celebrating the continuous growth and development of the little ones, celebrating milestones in your lives, and giving thanks to each brand new day. While this time period will certainly be marked with difficulty, I hope you’re able to take stock in all those around you that continue to bring you joy none-the-less. So with that I say, Happy/Hoppy Easter to you all, and see you next week!

The Weekend is Here!

Happy Saturday! The weekend is here and the weather is on our side. Our team will be out knocking doors today to talk to folks about saving money on their electricity bills by going solar – reach out today to schedule a time for us to come visit you in your home!

Why does the solar industry still go door to door to talk to homeowners?

It’s simple – the best way to determine whether or not you might save money adding solar panels to your home is to look at two things: 1) your roof style & the direction it faces (a southern facing roof is preferable for solar, at least in the northern hemisphere), and 2) your electricity bill. Because these two things are readily available in your home, and you usually don’t take them with you to the hardware store when you go, it’s easier for those working in solar to discuss potential savings with you at your door.
