We had a wonderful weekend in Jackson, MS–actually Flowood, MS. Husband and I went for a weekend away and to meet MaryJane Butters and family. They are just as precious in real life as I expected…and I expect a lot people! We had a lovely dinner on Friday night (talked a little business) and then Saturday I went to MaryJane’s presentation at Belk. Belk is the exclusive distributor of MaryJane’s organic cotton linens…check them out on her website! Awesome…I came home with some of the most luxurious towels!!! And also with such a huge since of belonging…to such a wonderful group…FARMGIRLS! We are a special breed and should embrace our talents, creativity, love for the land and for each other! Here are a few pictures I will write more about the particulars of the weekend when I am not so pooped!

I have been tagged…6 weird things…hmmmmm

Cherry tagged me!

Well…this is harder than I thought. I know many, many others think I am weird…odd…crazy…but, I think I am going to end up being boring instead of weird.

1) Valentine’s Day 2007 will be the anniversary of my first date with Husband 33 years ago. We have been together for much longer than we haven’t. WAY longer.

2)One thing I hate with a burning passion – panty hose. OH MY GOD – I detest them in so many, many ways. They are by far my least favorite article of clothing. And I think they are actually a torture device. Invented by a man of course. As a very cruel joke. Side bar: My favorite “uniform” is overalls and a white t-shirt.

3)I wore overalls everyday – EVERY DAY for 5 years. I still wear them at least 4-5 days a week. I do however own a couple pair of jeans now and will wear them “as dress up”. I am a very casual person and am very leary of an invitation that includes what I should or should not wear. I kinda figure if I cant wear my overalls, I dont really need to go. I intend to be buried in my overalls because I think it is very bizarre for a person to not look like themselves at a time when almost everyone you know will look at you and go…AWWW doesnt she look natural…when nothing could be farther from the truth. Not only do you look dead, but they wonder where you got those clothes. AND if whomever arranges my funeral allows them to put that god awful pink blush on me, I will haunt that person for the rest of their life. I think I have given this too much thought.

4)I am brutally honest. I get called out fairly regularly for this. However, people who know better will still ask my opinion when they know good and well I cannot in good conscience, pay lip service…if you dont want to know, dont ask. AND rest assured I will always say “are you sure you want my opinion?”. And they still do. Oh…and just for the record, I am often accused of not being a team player.

5)No one’s and I mean NO ONE’S voice bothers me anymore than George W. Bush. NO ONE’s. I dont think anyone’s even comes close. In the past 6 years I haven’t heard the man speak more than 10 words at any one time, before I either run from the room screaming or turn the TV off. Even if I read transcripts…which I am prone to do because I actually DO CARE about what goes on in the world and especially here, I hear his silly, nerve-wracking voice in my head. So most of the time I call my mom and ask her what was said. Short version please. And for those of you whom I have had endless conversations with about this administration, four words: I TOLD YOU SO. Man, I hate being right all the time. 😉

6)I am obsessed with Vermont. I know where almost every town/hamlet/villiage in Vermont is located. I know the average EVERYTHING about the state. I think almost everyday about moving there and would move to Vermont with Husband and children without ever looking back.

A little something extra: I own about 20 pairs of socks (all different) with cats on them.

I told you…boring.
