Happy 4th of July and The Winner of the Coffee Giveaway is…

As I promised when I got my first cup of coffee this morning, I would draw a name out of my well appointed mason jar. The winner is Comment #8! Amy B! Send me along your address and I will get this right out to you! I told you it wouldnt just be coffee! You will receive a 6 ounce bag of my Farmhouse Blend Coffee Beans, a Farmhouse Kitchen Candle (yes, I made it), A copy of MaryJanesFarm magazine (be sure and look on page 32!) and a bag of Gourmet Popping Corn (my favorite!)

I hope you all have a relaxing holiday planned (those of you in the USA that is!) It looks like rain for us! Like it has been for what seems like weeks now. You should see our yard…the grass is so high and too muddy to mow! I have got to get out to the garden as soon as it is daylight…

and pick tomatoes! There are tons of them.

We have a holiday meal planned with our friends the “Michelles” . Both of our husbands come home tomorrow – her’s from the Gulf, mine from Tunisia. We have big plans to cook hot dogs (DUH- its 4th of July), get in the floating lounge chairs and let the kids swim in their pool. BUT…I just bet we cook hot dogs and watch it rain.

Michelle, her girls and her Mom, came out yesterday afternoon and brought a delicious pound cake, fresh fruit and visited with my mom, me and my kids. Mom enjoyed the visit so much. I made the lovely Latte Punch and we laughed and visited all afternoon. The kids had a blast playing Scattergories & Clue. Michelle has been through a lot with her mom having breast cancer (thankfully she is cancer free and looks and feels great!) so, she knows how hard all this is on everyone and how important it is to take time to visit and be with each other.

Our families spend a lot of time together, and now that our husbands will be home a couple of weeks a month at the same time, we will spend even more time together I am sure. In fact, we have a big date night planned – just the four of us – dinner and maybe a movie.

OH…and before i forget…I did get my hair cut…MUCH! I love it. Short and sassy…and so much less trouble. My hair is so curly and unruly when it is long! Plus…I honestly think it makes me look old and tired! And we dont want that now do we???

That’s all this morning. I will be tied up all day today – holiday tomorrow…though I do believe will will miss the swimming part due to weather. I will do the drawing in the morning, announce the winner and get the package off Thursday. I may be a little scarce for the next few days. Husband flies home Thursday night. With all the goings on in the world, I am a bit more nervous than usual. I just have to believe he will be safe.

Now if you dont have this treasure ~ get it!  It is available on MaryJane’s website AND Amazon.com of course!  MaryJane and Crew have enriched my life so much…it seems to never end.  And now she has introduced me to a new favorite quote:

Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics,when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1859
