Beautiful Monday

while looking at blogs today I stumbled onto a picture of a guy standing in snow. IN JUNE. Up north right here in America, USA. I still shiver at the snow we played in while in Alaska one long ago August day. Just ain't right to have snow in summer.

I am not enjoying Oklahoma heat however, I am NOT ready for snow. Not by a long shot. Although it looks like Miss Maggie is having a blast running so fast I could barley catch a picture of her last February.

We have a cold front moving through. It will only be in the low nineties for the next week or so. Of course this means I will get to play in the garden again. Yea! look out weeds, your days are numbered.

Hope it is a beautiful day were you are.

Cat in the box

I turned on fans to day to keep a breeze going thru the house since it feels like 107 here. My poor baby mowed the lawn this morning around eight a.m. to beat the heat ........ it was 80 already!

Carter decided to nap in the box our cooker arrived in. Heat does not bother this air conditioned cat. Of course as soon as the sun goes down I will remove his "bed" to the outside trash bin. I felt so sorry for our guy in brown and our mailman today. Bless them for all the hard work they do daily in this nasty Oklahoma heat.

Hope it's cool where you are today.

Wicked Dreams

Have you ever had a dream that just spoils your whole day?

I woke up VERY cranky this morning. Right off the bat just in the worst mood.

I finally remembered bits and pieces of my dream.

Basically it was a dream that hurt my feelings.

Real wickedly hurt feelings.

Has that ever happened to you? Seriously? Can a dream hurt your feelings?

Make you feel so bad it just ruins your whole day?
Yes. It did.

Thank God the dream wasn't true.

Gonna be nasty

Took the dogs out at 4:00 am this morning. Not by choice. BaiLea woke me up and demanded to go OUT. NOW.

Lots of lightening and oh my goodness the air is so thick and heavy! Not gonna be a good day in Oklahoma weather wise.

Yesterday we had a shopping adventure. We actually made a list and went from one place to another to purchase the necessary items. Oh it got so darn hot. Several of the stores air conditioners were NOT up to par. Least we did not terry in those places.

Rude as it may sound I hate clothes shopping with Luz. She is such a pain. Half the time she refused to try on the shorts so now we have to return a bag full of stuff to several places. Kids! Actually adult kid so I can't boss her like I need to :o)

Hope the sun will shine on your day!

Gem Faire

The Gem Faire is going on at the Tulsa fairgrounds this week end. There is a charge of $5.00 at the door or you and a friend can print off the coupon on their web site and get in two for one.

I found lots of interesting things. Course my main focus is on wire and those supplies were sadly lacking (duh...gem fair) and expected but I was hopeing. However, some of the gems were awesome.

I hated the way most of the big vendors priced things. Like 98.00 for a string of beads that is now on clearance for 70% off. Cabs were outrageously priced only to be marked down 70%. Each booth of course had creative ways to price stuff. I had to ask at most places how much each item I wanted was which is VERY irritating to me.

I found a new man made stone that I love. One booth called it Blue Gold Stone. I have always loved Gold Stone. Now I find it comes in midnight blue and a beautiful green. Not many examples but enough for me to love it.

One booth had the most beautiful rock cabs all shinned up and ready to wrap. The only problem I had was the stones were cut so thin they would easily break. Once again everything was marked up and then on "sale" at half off. ooooooo big bargain. I walked away lusting over the zebra stone. I really, really want some of that. As soon as I can find a nice hunk that won't break the first time it clinks a table I shall snatch it up and wrap it in gold. Something to look forward to.

It was a fun day looking at a few stones I had never seen before. I bought many cool things. My bag of loot contained beads and such but the interesting buys was shark teeth and old coins from Peru.

Check it out if you in the Tulsa area.

El Virus is still here

Saw the doctor today. He said I have allergies (since I was 6) and I have a in its second week. I am tired of being sick.

We went from nice slightly cloudy/rainy weather to the inferno. Felt like a 100 here today. Doc wanted to know why I was having so much trouble breathing. Cause it's HOT out there. Not to mention grass, trees, mold, and lots of other nasties that make me ill.

My baby boy cat is not feeling well either. He also has allergies (allergic to my mean daughter). ....well she is not to mean. She brought home the second season of True Blood for me to watch. Didn't really feel up to it but I thought she was sweet to think of me.

There is a bead show at the fair grounds this week end. I need to get to feeling better so I can go. I have "MANY" pages marked in several books of projects I want to do and need to purchase the junk (wire, beads, crystals, ect) to get started.

A lovely lady in Broken Arrow bought the bead store I have been going to so I will have an in town store to purchase some of my supplies, plus Hobby Lobby and Michael's of course.

How long till fall?
