What's New In August

Well, school is just starting up next week for the kids! That's good news!
Unfortunately, I went to summer school myself, and so didn't get much of a break. It was intense, but fun too!
I made a few pendants though! I made a cross with swarovski crystal dangles. I added one tassel with the salvation colors in swarovski crystals.
The others are in light blue and clear crystals, signifying the water of life that Jesus is. It hangs about 3 inches, and will be available in my Ebay store!
If you don't know what the salvation colors stand for:
Black -I was lost in the darkness of my sin.
Red - Jesus died and shed His blood for me.
Clear - Now I am clean and my sins have been forgiven.
Blue - I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Green - I am growing in my relationship with God.
Gold - I have the promise of eternal life to walk the streets of gold.

Rennaisance Fair at the Muskogee Castle

This month, we also went to the rennaisance fair with our family who visited us. It was lots of fun, and if you are in the area, don't forget to check out the Muskogee Castle. They also have a fireworks extravaganza coming up, and there is also the haunted castle for Halloween!
We had lots of fun.

May Madness-at least mine:)

This month has been expecially hectic, and so I haven't had lots of time to add my pics here, sorry! Have had some family come and visit, along with our sons baseball games,swimming, and so on. All fun though!
Anyway,here are a few excerpts:)
This band is Mercy Me, a christian band, and they played in Tulsa. They were great!

On the left, is our son, Ryan, at his baseball practice. Its his first year, but he's doing well:)

Tommorrow is the day!

Well tommorrow night, my stepson is coming, and we will be having company for awhile. He will be coming to see if he wants to live in this area, and if so, getting ready to find work, etc!

I have been busy making some bead sets, and they will be coming on auction this month. Here is one of the new sets I have been working on! The blue set is on auction now, and the flower set is coming next week!
I know, I know very different directions! But that's how it goes for me:)
I go from one idea to the next.....
Have a great week!

Well, lots has been going on lately! The other day we had a huge electrical storm, and this time I REALLY heard the lightening! Wow! It seemed so close. But storms pass quickly around here, it's surprising.

We have been very busy cleaning up, and getting ready for my stepson to come for awhile, and just a few days later, my father will be coming! Everyone comes to visit at the same time!
But I will be glad to see everyone.
Baseball season is also here, and my son is on a team, and he's really enjoying it! I will try to post a photo tommorrow.
Until then, sleep well!

Strawberry Fields

This is my newest set of beads. If I can upload the photos, I will post it on Ebay, but so far haven't been able to upload it for my auction template.
Anyway, hope you like it!

Donkey Basketball

I've never heard of such a thing, but Friday we went to see for ourselves, and we had a blast! It was totally hilarious!

Oh Dear!

Recently, I have been going to a joint specialist for pain in my knees. Well, the other day he said that because of all the problems, I will have to tolerate the pain until I can't anymore, then get knee replacements.
Because of this, I have been on a strict diet, and started walking and swimming to lose weight. (easier on my knees!)
I go walking in a nature preserve with a friend of mine. ( She has the two dogs in the photo!)Yesterday, while walking, there was a little deer there, and he followed us until we left! I've never had an experience like this! The little guy probably was being rehabilitated, and was used to people, but he walked just behind us all the way!

He did come up to us a few time when we tried to give him water and applesauce, but then he'd act like he was going away, and kept folllowing!
He was soooo cute!!

We also got to see an owls nest, with a baby owl, but that's another story!
Many blessings to you, Cyndi
