HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!! FLY THE FLAG, EAT SOME WATERMELLON AND HAVE A SEED SPITTING CONTEST….REMEMBER OUR BRAVE SERVICE PEOPLE TODAY...I LOVE THE FOURTH!!!

My daughter is running the Peachtree Road Race this morning, along with 50,000 of her best friends.This race is such an Atlanta tradition. Luckily it is quite cool with very low humidity which is SUPER RARE…heck almost never happens in July here is HOTLANA… See there she is, she is the beautiful blonde running with her Ipod I bet.
GO EMILY GET THAT TEE SHIRT!!! Waving to you sweetie….My personal contribution to her run is to sit on the porch and drink coffee. Then I’m going to go sew. I don’t want to stress my self out on this glorious holiday.

I was so busy cooking and cleaning yesterday I did not get near the computer. Emily and Russ got in yesterday afternoon, Mary Beth got off from work, Suzanne came over and we had a wonderful pasta dinner. Needless to say I spent the better part of yesterday getting the house clean and packing packing, packing for the STITCH IN.With a holiday weekend just before the Stitch In, I’m a little busy.
