HAPPY 4th OF JULY!

FUN 4TH OF JULY FACTS:

Did You Know?

John Adams believed that July 2nd was the correct date on which to celebrate the birth of American independence, and would reportedly turn down invitations to appear at July 4th events in protest. Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on July 4, 1826–the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.

The Birth of American Independence

When the initial battles in the Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, few colonists desired complete independence from Great Britain, and those who did were considered radical. By the middle of the following year, however, many more colonists had come to favor independence, thanks to growing hostility against Britain and the spread of revolutionary sentiments such as those expressed in Thomas Paine’s bestselling pamphlet “Common Sense,” published in early 1776. On June 7, when the Continental Congress met at the Pennsylvania State House (later Independence Hall) in Philadelphia, the Virginia delegate Richard Henry Lee introduced a motion calling for the colonies’ independence. Amid heated debate, Congress postponed the vote on Lee’s resolution, but appointed a five-man committee–including Thomas Jefferson of Virginia, John Adams of Massachusetts, Roger Sherman of Connecticut, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Robert R. Livingston of New York–to draft a formal statement justifying the break with Great Britain.

10 Ways to Celebrate Summer

10 Ways to Celebrate Summer
How will you celebrate the solstice and all that extra daylight? Here are 10 ideas from http://www.almanac.com/content/first-day-summer-summer-solstice

Light a bonfire: The solstice day was traditionally celebrated by dancing around the bonfires.

Go fishin’: We love to get out on the water. Stock up your fridge or just enjoy the serenity that fishing brings.

Plant a seed or a tree: Traditionally, to the farmer, the solstice is the midpoint of the growing season, halfway between planting and harvesting, and an occasion for celebration.

Cook outside: There’s nothing as tasty as grilled food. Have a big cook-out on the solstice.

Camp: Plan a camp-out to enjoy the great outdoors whether it’s a tent in the backyard or a cabin in the woods! Don’t forget the best natural insect repellent on Earth to enjoy the outdoors in peace.

Listen to songbirds: We love our feathered friends. Attract birds to your garden with beautiful bird feeders.

Get pampered. Midsummer Day, near the solstice, was said to make old people look younger. It was also thought that walking barefoot in the dew would keep one’s skin from getting chapped. Summer certainly does cure the winter dries. You can also check out popular gardener’s lotions and fisherman’s soaps to soften calloused working hands.

Let the light in! With all this extra daylight, hang one of our gorgeous suncatchers for your window or porch.

Read a book. Temperatures rise and lazy days ensue. Relax on the beach or the porch and read up on gardening tips, natural health, and more.

Watch the night sky! In ancient Egypt, the new year was celebrated when the star Sirius rose around the time of sunrise. This roughly coincided with the summer solstice and the annual flooding of the Nile River.

5 Stages of Having Your Kids Home From College

Isn’t it exciting to have your kids home from college? You haven’t seen them in months and now you will get to spend quality time with them (or so you think). You quickly go from the excitement of having them home to the excitement of sending them back to school. We get it. You’ll gloss over the details when talking to friends, but we know the five stages of having your kids home from college.

Stage 1 – Anticipation: You have been counting down the days on a calendar (“So retro, Mom”) or a nifty Facebook app (“Mom. No one does that. Like no one. Ever.”). You clean the house, leave a pile of interesting articles you’ve cut from newspapers on their bed, and buy all of your son or daughter’s favorite foods.

Stage 2 – Excitement: You pick your son or daughter up at the airport. You carry an entire bag of dirty laundry to the car and refrain from asking them why they didn’t just wash it at school. You cook their favorite dinner then proceed to ask them 20 – okay, maybe 200 – questions about school, their love life, and whether the campus is safe. Things are great! Your child is back and you are thrilled to get to spend quality time with them while they are home.

Stage 3 – Disappointment: Your son or daughter starts hanging out with his or her friends. You realize you won’t actually get to spend as much quality time together as you had anticipated.

Stage 4 – Annoyance: Your son or daughter comes home late, makes the third stair squeak late at night, and has noisy friends over constantly. You are starting to remember their time in high school. There is a pile of dirty dishes in the sink and a pile of clothes on their floor.

Stage 5 – Anticipation (again): You make your son or daughter have a family dinner the night before they leave. You drive them to the airport the next day. You come home feeling nostalgic and lonely and set a calendar countdown or Facebook app countdown for when they will come home next.

Time may go by faster than usual, but the best part about having your son or daughter back from college is knowing they always have a place to call “home.” Now to get ready before their next visit!
