OuR 5th oF JuLy CaMe In wiTh a ReaL BanG...
Good Afternoon Peeps..I hope your 4th of July was a great one..mine was till I was rudely awakened at 4:30am this morning to what sounded like a thunder storm or fireworks..our neighbor that lives behind us has a rotting tree..that decided to land in our yard..took out the shed as you can see..
part of the kitty kennel..mostly broken beams..but now the kittys can't go out to enjoy the sun for a while till we get this fixed..
here is my veggie garden..took out my cabbage and two of my lettuces..and its so weird because its like the leaves all came off seperately..got most of it cleaned out of the garden..
the back of the shed (the one in the upper photo with the door..it looks like the roof is melting off the back..this end is in a definite slant now..
the neighbor thought it was just leaves that fell till she came over to see for herself..they were going to have it removed this summer..but it took care of itself at 4:30am..now we are dealing with insurance companies, and our tree guy is coming over to give us a bid for removal etc..the tree fell in 3 yards..mostly in ours..well at least I won't have to deal with those leaves that I complain about all the time..lol..just grateful it didn't hit the house and we are all okay..and glad it happened in the summer and not this winter when it was raining..so now its time to rebuild it..
I got my hair done on friday..and she did a great job this time..just the way I like it..
very random with the color..now we are growing out the bangs again..isn't this the way it goes..you cut it all off and then you decide to grow it out again cause you see a great photo..well that's what happened..and I started tanning again..this time with a tanning bed..might do it once a week to keep it going..haven't decided..but they have spray tan bronzers you can purchase and they work so well..so far no problems like I had with the actual spray tan bed..
I made these for my friend Careese's baby Harper (she is in the last blog post)..she wanted some for the 4th of July..they are so much fun to make..
last week out shopping I purchased a pair of cute khaki capri's(not shown) and some shorts..I love these..but they were a bit too short for my fat legs..(yes even with the weight loss there is cellulite) and its not pretty..so this is after I unhemmed them..
love the belt.;)
I took fabric that I was going to use for making purses and added lace...
I slit the sides and there you have it..I love how they look now..I wore them to our 4th of July parade yesterday along with a flag like blouse and white tank top underneath.oh and I wore my cowboy hat too...I felt pretty darned great in this outfit..
it was just enough to hide what I don't like about my upper legs..here is the back of the shorts..JC Penneys has great clothes at great prices...
I made a cute summer hat last week..I used that cotton yarn..really easy hat..only took 2 days to do it..now I am making a cowl neck scarf.. well today I am hopefully getting contacts..went to the eye doctor on the 20th of June..and they are in and now I get to see if I can actually wear them..tried them 20+ years ago when soft lens' first came out..I couldn't wear them..they dried out my eyes way too much..so going in with no makeup so I can put them in and take them out and see if I can really do it..otherwise getting new glasses..they are making them with the bifocal..will see how I like that.. well we had a wonderful 4th of July..no rain..although it rained the 2 days prior it started off not so sunny then it just got glorious..went to the parade with friends..had front row seats..the kids cleaned up in the candy dept..it was like halloween for them..I hung out with my friend at her parents house for a bit and then came home and took Tucky for a nice 2 mile walk in the evening sun shining on us..we had leftover Ribs and tators and grilled asparagus..and relaxed on the couch with the TV till I fell asleep..we are supposed to get nice weather in the 70's all week long..hubby took today off to clean up part of this mess..we are waiting for our tree guy to get here to give us a bid...I hear some of you that were in the nasty storms have gotten your power back on..I am so glad..especially with all the heat you are getting..it is no fun being without power..you have all been in my prayers..I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July..I have to get prepared for my big garage sale that I do at my friends house..so next week is going to be spent up in the garage going through stuff.(not looking forward to it)..but it needs to be done..going out with my friend Michelle again on her boat and going crabbing..hoping we come home with some crabs for dinner..and not the kind on my bum...LMAOL..;) take care and enjoy the rest of your week.;)

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
