Love Pretty Little Shiney Beads

Today is Wednesday, August 18, 2010. We have returned to the hot and humid days of summer with the late afternoon, early evening thunder storms. I was so hoping that those three days of a breeze and no humidity were going to last the rest of summer. It was just a big tease.

After setting the live trap we waited three days and no fox to be had. Not sure if it wondered off and died somewhere or the people behind us, they have loads of farm animals, might have killed it. They had to get a coyote a couple of months back. Sure glad that I didn't know about it at the time. Would have made me real nervous being outside.

The other day after work son #5 was mowing the lawn, he calls young son on the phone and tells him to tell dad to come outside, NOT mom. Okay, mom wants to know what is going on that she isn't supposed to know about. Nothing mom.... I am not buying this at all, when George came back in I asked what was going on. He looked at son #5 and then at me. There was a snake in the front yard. Great! Just lovely! That same morning there was a long black one that came in under the back fence into the wood pile. George asks me if it was shinny? You honestly think I got that close to it? I seen it and came in the house. End of story.

In the eleven years that I have lived here, that is the second snake I have seen. The guys have seen them and taken care of them, but not me. Both of them I have seen this summer, maybe the heat is getting to everyone including the critters.Troubles sister is still laying one egg a day. Nothing from the rest of them yet, but she is pulling her weight. The eggs are still not big but they are bigger than her first one. It was about the size of a jaw breaker. I thought the little tan and white one was going to start laying eggs but nothing yet. I can't figure out why they keep kicking the hay out of their boxes. The hay is in there at night and in the morning it has been kicked out.
I had seen these pretty beads in the sewing shop and bought them. I love beads, pretty shinny ones, there is so much you can do with them. So I made a few little bags made of felt and then used the beads on them. They are lined and so cute. Have two more almost done, they will be finished today. So very proud that I have almost 70 items now listed in my Etsy shop. This was something that I have been working on for the last week or so. Now if I list as I finish, it should be so much easier. But, knowing me, I will wait until I get twenty things finished and then have to list them all at one time. I will never learn..... Etsy did get a face lift on the shops, they must have done this last night. Instead of everything on the right side of the screen, it is on the left. The message space is now much smaller and you have to click on it in order to read it all. It seems like the pictures are a little bigger now too.

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~

  2. Those bags are simply gorgeous. I love them all. What is it with this summer? It never wants to end. I cannot take any more of this heat and humidity. I'm so tired of having hair that looks like I just washed it when I get to work. I just hate feeling sweaty...period.

  3. Oh snakes yuck. And those black ones must be so hot in the summer.
    Those bags are darling Dede.
    I saw the facelift on etsy last night, weird huh?
    More pictures per page and a little bigger.
    Not sure about it though, but it looks good!

    Snakes YIIKS as hubby says the only good snake is a dead snake.

    I'm not really sure if I like how Etsy changed everything. Oh well we will all get use to it.LOL
    You have a great day!

  5. Really pretty little bags! So cute!

    Good thing you didn't spot the snake! Just walk away when the boys say "don't let Mom see." It's better that way!

    We are dealing with lots of heat now too - I just keep reminding myself that it won't last too much longer...

    Hope the chicks get laying soon - fresh eggs are the best!
