loooooook! what I got in my old rusty with no lid mail box ThursdaY!!!!! A Jiffylite brownish yellowish envelope full to the brim with art inside!!!! I've got to get BUSY now! My sweet friend Zorana and I are swapping ATC's! Her art is Exquisite!!! Well, YOU can seeeeeeeeee for yourself!!! ZORANA! THANK YOU!!! Your package arrived just at the right time!!! Wednesday and Thursday was very emotional for me! Wednesday, my youngest son was mowing our grass when he came in yelling, me running thru the hall yelling his name, "MARIO! Mario! what's the matter? and he kept yelling and wouldn't answer sooooooo I was trying to prepare myself for whatever I might seeeeeeeeee in the next few seconds! After my oldest son got hurt and ALMOST sliced his two finger tips off the first of July, I was very EXCITED!(seeee JULY 12 post, this Blog is cool, you can go back and seeeeeeeeeeeee what you were doing that certain day) ANYWAY, I was preparing myself to seeeeee blood and gory as I ran down the steps, I was soooooo scared! Mario was stung by beees and chased and he was stung 6-7 times! Phew! I know this is bad but I was soooooo THANKFUL it wasn't something worse! With lawn mowers you know what can happen!(Thank GOD he isn't allergic to beeeeeee stings!) Phew! In the meantime my oldest son was delivering packages on this HOT same day and he didn't get done til' 9 PM and he had to call UPS to come get him and his truck. He couldn't walk, his ears were ringing and his legs were cramping and he said he was in very much PAIN! sooooooo to the VA Hospital he goes and the Dr. says this is the worse DEHYDRATION case he has ever seen for a guy his age(Damon is 30, soon to be 31!) He's promply put on IV and he gets out around 2am. The Dr. wanted him to stay for observation but Damon and his girlfriend left! He is supposed to go back to seeeeeee why his white cell count is up! The best part about all this is, HE never called us and I had to FIND OUT HE WAS IN THE HOSPITAL by one of his friends! the next day which was Thursday! sooooooooo needless to say, Damon was in the dog house for a minute or two!!!LOL I haven't googled dehydration yet but his kidneys were almost near to shutting down!!! This reminds me and I know it reminded Damon of that song, "Knock, Knock, Knock on Heaven's Door" Who sings this song, I can't think straight yet! PHEW! sooooooooooooooooo ZORANA, your package in the mail was a GODSEND! I LOVED it! Thank YOU!!! I love getting mail, don't you and sometimes it does arrive at the perfect moment! ps. if you seeeeeeeeeeeee your UPS man, offer him a smile and a drink, it might save his life!

Whirl and Twirl

Eyes dancing and there
There it is, for goodness sake
The icing dripping everywhere

Before we went to the Glen Elk festival, Jerry and I went to my family reunion! Guess who we met there???? YES! My dad and mom! If you have followed my Blog my dad was very sick and near the Heaven's Gate back in March, but miracles do happen! I never thought he would be at the Reunion and DANCING and PLAYING THE FIDDLE! WOOOO HOOOOO! What a FUN day we had Saturday, we went down to the Moose and danced a few dances ourselves! after the Glen Elk festival because the band we had at the reunion was going to another gig that night! My cousin, Eddy's band is Backstage Pass and they are a pretty good band! My second cousins were in Pittsburgh finishing up a CD, they are trying to make it in the music business! soooooo hopefully I'll be bragging on them some day! soon! Maybe someone has heard them! Their band is called "The Davisson Brothers" If you like country, you'll like these boys! (I've tried many times to get a pic of mom and dad on here but Blogger is being stubborn tonight!) UG! I'll keep trying!
Jerry and I was gonna ride this carriage but like I said it was late and the one horse got sick! sooooo they had another covered wagon but I was smelling the horses and I'm allergic to all animals soooo we decide not to! Ah-chooooo! This was where I caught the train to Washington D.C. for our 6th grade trip! too when trains were running more than they are now! before they had the fancy trains they have now! too! This was an old B&O train! lol

Isn't this pretty? It was in a real old warehouse storage building over in a small part of town where I live near called Glen Elk. They had a festival Friday and Saturday. They had wine tasting, horse and buggy rides, tours, some bands, yummy food! but I fell in love with this safe door in the old 1901 building! Look at the painting on it and all these floors were wooden, I want to go back! We got there too late Saturday! Just about closing time! Does anyone recognize this painting? I think it is soooooo COOL!


Let's COUNT our Blessings! How is everyone today!? I'm cleaning out my refrigerator( UG! )sooooo I'll post more later! love and prayers,xo

Tell me about your shadow

Michelle and Mindy, I've read their shadow stories, great ones I might add! I'd love to hang out with their shadows or their other selves! Here goes mine!
My shadow is a person like Mother Teresa, I want to help the human race, pray with them, tend to their wounds, feed them, be with them when they die but the other me is globe trotting, looking and living all the different cultures, I have an old beat up truck too(on it's side it says "Hold On, I'm COMING!"), it's turquoise and there's an old red jeep in the garage if the old truck doesn't make it!(Hold On, I'm COMING II!" Both Cindas use this same truck and jeep.........When I want to get away from it all I might go into a bar and get a real cold one, listen to a few oldies on the juke box("Light my Fire" by The Doors and" Pearl Necklace" by ZZtop and "A Horse With No Name" by America and then head out for a hill and hike and try to find that horse with no name and ride around for a few weeks. The turquoise eyed Cinda is going to a "Think Tank" and stay for about 3 months trying to learn how to fly!(not airplanes or jets) Why not? lol Both Cindas love to laugh and sing altho they can't carry a tune sometimes! I would go to lots of art fests and learn all I could and create art in an artist colony for a year! That's enough for now, hmmmm I'd wear rick rack long skirts and peasant looking blouses and look for the old Army hat my brother brought home from Viet Nam I embroidered and the real hitch-hiking Cinda(don't worry, I would NEVER hitch hike today and I was very lucky I know, phew!) lost a long time ago........ I wonder if anyone is wearing it today. Maybe the globe trotting Cinda will seeeeeeeeee it on someone one day! Are you going to tell us about your shadow? Don't forget to read Michelle's and Mindy's shadow stories! Has anyone else wrote a shadow story? Let me know and I'll go read it!

How is everyone today??? I just came back from the porch and told the FedEx man to leave my Dick Blick box by the door and not to come up the steps! He gave me a grin, just a simple grin letting me know he appreciated that! It's soooooo muggy HOT here in West Virginia today! The poor guy was sweating! and he wears glasses! I hate that! You know how that is if you ever wear glasses! I should wear glasses all the time probably but I just wear them for TV, I can't read or create collages in them! sooooo maybe I don't need them all the time. Goody Gumdrop, I got some more Strathmore Watercolor paper and a few canvas's. I'm just about out of each! My poor son got hurt on the job last Friday........he drives for UPS and he sliced 2 of his fingers. ICK! There are angels out there! He ran in the Elder-Beerman store and 2 ladies took care of him, even taking off from work and driving him to the Emergency place! He had to have several stitches in each finger! I can't stand to get a paper cut and Damon was afraid he had lost his fingers!!! Thank God he didn't! Phew! It's always something isn't it??? Well, I HOPE you are having a sweet little Wednesday!
ps. this collage is on sale on eBay too! It says " Life is the gift of God, and is divine" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.............creating collages is my time to relax and say AAAAAAHHHHHhhhhhhhhh
another AAAAHHHHHhhhhhh moment is Liz Elayne's WONDERFUL post, if you need to relax, this sweet girly can help!!! Thanks! Liz for such a beauty full moment in time! ok, here it is

This collage I made the same day as my Gold Skyline "Twinkles" This one reads, "Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another" by George Eliot
Do you second guess your art sometimes??? I wanted to change the man's half dog face after I kept reading the beautiful quote but decided to leave it as it was first made! Maybe this will make sense to someone out there in Blog land! lol
I have a little bookmark in my Bible and it says "Rejoice in this day" soooo Happy Sunday!
