{It's Almost August}

 Hello Sweet Sunday Afternoon! Where in the world has July went? In a few more days we will be venturing into August and I feel the summer is passing quickly. I want to say that several have pointed out blogger issues from me. Some of you are getting that I am a non-reply blogger. I have no clue why. Some of you are not able to see my pictures that I post and I have no clue why. I have had so many issues lately with blogger. Any old ways I will try again today and we shall see what happens. You should be able to find my little old blog over at www.bloglovin.com too. Just type in Creationsbycindy in the search box.  What have you ate good lately? We let me say that we have ate quiet well this week. I whipped Marty and I up a Chicken Fajita bowl this week served over brown rice. It was so good and favorable.  I took some leftover breakfast bacon and made myself a BLT using fresh tomatoes out of my garden. YEP, more tomatoes than bacon I think. But oh so good.  Of course I had to have a l

Yes, we went to the beach again for a weekend and I know I have told y'all this before but it is truly my "Happy Place" . I could so be a BEACH BUM ! After our last beach trip a few weeks ago several of you asked me these questions so I will answer them for you. For those that sent me a personal email on beach "tips"I replied to you in an email. Q: How can I sit in that sun all day at the beach?  A: I carry a tent. I sit a while in the sun and then I sit a while under the tent.  Q: Do you use lots of protection on your skin? A: Yes. I use a mixture of tanning lotions, oils and sunblocks for my face, lips and my body. Wind burn can be bad too so whether I am in sun or under a tent I keep coverage on. And, when I feel I have had enough sun then a wrap up or tee goes on. I always have a hat and sunglasses on. I will sit under the tent without a hat. I try to be careful about sun exposure for sure. I always use a good moisturizer after sun exposure. I have

Well isn't this just the cutest tea pot lamp you've ever seen? And I paid a whopping $1.99 for her! She just needs a new shade and a little buffing up. It will be perfect for decor when I do tea parties for my grandgirls.  YEP, WENT THRIFTING AGAIN! I decided to do a little thrifting again but this time I went to town. For those of you that wonder what TOWN is for me, well, it's about 30-35 miles or so to the closest thrift store. I winded up hitting about 4 thrift stores. It was a nice outing. I took my time, stopped when I wanted too and even went by Starbucks and got myself a breakfast sandwich and my favorite...Passion Tea.  So let me just show you what else I scored thrifting. Yep, I take it by spells but I have had TWO spells recently so my man said I need to take a dose of Ibuprofen to get OVER the spell! LOL!   Awe...don't you just love this cute tea pot? On the bottom of the tea pot is says Teleflora  1985. I snatched it up fo

We have been longing for a little rain and finally got enough to wet the ground. Not a whole lot but praise the Lord for what He did send. My "pretties" actually are looking ALIVE ! I decided to clear out a few more clothing pieces and shoes from my closet. Hasn't been too long that I cleaned out my closet but done a swipe through and actually found a few more things that I needed to rid of. I carried a bag full to our local Thrift store in our community. Of course I could not carry something in and not browse though......That's why it's better for me to take things to donate when they are closed and leave it in the bin!!! I take my thrifting by spells but when time allows I enjoy going into our local thrift store called Rack Up . The volunteers are always so nice and it's a good way to run into someone you know but haven't seen in a long time and actually take a little time to visit with them. But, this Thrift store is a little different. It

{Mini Beach Trip}

Nothing like being "OFF DUTY" for three nights and two days at your Happy Place! The weather was beautiful and the beach wasn't crowded to my shock! I figured with school being out it would be packed. I went to the beach with intention of listening to the waves, feeling that cool beach breeze and reading a good book and that I did. Of course you can't go to the beach without a kite! My husband bought this kite last year before our family beach vacation and he has enjoyed it so much. I remember when he went on a search for the exact kind of kite that he wanted. Me, I would have bought a cheap $5 kite. NOPE....we had to have a kite that would fly to the moon! LOL! He washes that thing down after each use and stores it nice and neat in a cool spot until the next use. Just to tell you how serious the man is about his kite, I made a suggestion about letting one of the grands using it for kite day at school. Well, that was a big fat NO! Not his
