Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. Eskimo proverb

My BiG AdVenTureS WiTh My FriEnD MiCheLLe and MiKey
Good Morning or Good afternoon to some of you!!! hope your week has been a good one.;) Last thursday after the tree fell on the shed..I had an eye appt. it had been 2 years so I was due to get the eyes checked and I had told them I would like to try contacts..it had been 20+ years since I had tried them and I knew technology had to be better so they let me loose with them..I did pretty darn stinking good getting them in my eyes too..(it would take me about 15-20 minutes in the past..This gal educated me on how to get them in and out and it was sooooo easy..I am now in the process of wearing them for a week (which I have done already) and went back yesterday to see if they could give me a "reader" one and "distance" one..as I can't see anything close up I mean I can't get my hand far enough away from my face and still can't read..so reading labels or hymn books was hard and I didn't want to wear my "reading glasses" or make sure I have them on me at all times..so they said they could give me a reader contact for one eye..(my left) as it is NOT the dominant eye..its a bit weird but I can see better close up..although one eye (my left is now a bit blurry) for distance...so now I wear these for a week and I go back next wednesday to see which ones I will choose..I will also get a pair of regular glasses as there will be days I will not wear my contacts and I can't see Jack without them..other then that I like wearing contacts..hubby is still getting used to me not wearing glasses...so then on friday the 6th of July I went boating with my gal pal Michelle and her son Mikey..we were going to go to the movies..but with the gorgeous weather we were having we just had to go out on her boat and go crabbing/fishing..the above photo is our dock (where I live in Indianola)..it was a low tide..and there was a boat sitting on the sand waiting for the tide to come back in..the tide goes so low that you can literally walk out to the end of the dock..and from what Michelle told me there is a car at the bottom that has been there since the 50's as that dock used to be a ferry dock..
now we use it for fishing..playing in the water..fireworks..its where they do our fireworks every year right before the 4th of july..and the house to the left of the dock looking at the photo is where I spent watching the fireworks that night..the best seat in the house..as it is Michelle's daughter's house..
Michelle decided to throw her pole in to see what she would catch and within 4 minutes she caught a flounder..
she tried to put him back in..but he swallowed the hook and had to cut off his head..so she used it as bait and when we had nothing on the line..she pulled it back in to get it off her hook once and for all and the thing kept biting her without a body..it was weird...I am sure it was reflex..but it was still weird..
we set out the crab pots and then went toodling around the Puget sound looking at houses and just enjoying the cool breeze running through our hair...Oooooohhhh Honey? (remind you of a peppermint patty commerciail)?...lol...we got 5 crabs that day
sorry the pics look like I cut them off but with the sun glare it was hard to tell what I was taking a photo of..we caught rock and dungeness crabs..
this is a boy crab..I got educated on how you can tell..his underside is more pointy in the center and the females are more rounded..and you are not allowed to keep females..they must populate the earth..
measuring to make sure they are keepers..
Mikey dragging in a crab pot..that was both our jobs..great for the arms..dang those pots are heavy..especially with crabs in them..
that is a girl crab..and back in the water she went..
oh what a glorious day it was...
loved seeing the boats out on the water..it was the best 4 hours ever and I didn't get burned..just a slight pink on one of my shoulders..and I wore my contacts with a groovy new pair of sunglasses..( I got two new pairs of sunglasses) at riteaid..my sporty pair that have the glass/mirror lenses and my girly pair..they are white with gem stones on the outer corners..they sent us home with 2 crabs so on saturday night we had crabe cakes and they were tasty...on Tuesday this week we hit the movies and saw Brave and I ate crab cakes at her place as they had caught 7 more on monday...oh my my..I do love seafood..my friend Michelle got so tan..almost read that we are calling her "the Tanning Mom" that you have been seeing on tv...(she doesn't look like that anymore..lol..
here is a sneek peek at what I did this past weekend..it involved 2 flats of the most delicious strawberries eva!!! will share that in the next post along with how the yard is coming along..now thats a story..have a wonderful rest of your week..I am off to play in the garage and go through stuff and price it out for my big 3 day sale/crafting event next friday-sunday..gotta get rid of a lot of stuff and holiday stuff..will take photos..might have to post some of it online with what ever doesn't sale....thanks for stopping by and talk to you again soon...AAAAHHHHH summer is finally here for us..and it is wonderful...:)

God is eagerly waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as he always has. But he can't if you don't pray, and he can't if you don't dream. In short, he can't if you don't believe.” ― Jeffrey R. Holland
Hi there, My name is Gina and I live with my hubby of 27 years this new years eve 2012 and 9 cats and one stinky puppy..I have been crafting for about 25 years on and off...I can't remember how I came across the primitives, but I love them... Love the time worn look and the loved look...Sometimes I think I was born a hundred years too late..although I do love modern conveniences...like having my outhouse in my house if you know what I mean.. I love to decorate, it just tickles me to organize...any way, drop me a line. I love hearing from you all. Thanks for stopping by...:)
Weep not for me though I am gone, Into that gentle night. Grieve if you will, but not for long, Upon my soul's sweet flight. I am at peace, my soul's at rest, There is no need for tears. For with your love I was so blessed For all those many years. There is no pain, I suffer not, The fear now all is gone. Put now these things out of your thoughts, In your memory I live on. Remember not my fight for breath, Remember not the strife, Please do not dwell upon my death, But celebrate my life. Author Constance Jenkins
