time flies doesn't it?

summer time and i am trying to cram as much as I can into the 2 months that we get.

camping, concerts, boating, gardening and of course working-yuk-

anyway, i have been making jewelry and getting rid of it as soon as it is done. No pictures but, I will hopefully make more this weekend and get some photos.

I want to go to another art retreat, one that has photography classes. I will keep looking for one that is close.

we are having a nice summer rain today, it feels good to cool off.

more later

On Tuesday night we had a HUGE thunder storm. lightenig and thunder that you would not believe.It was all around our neighborhood. I was on the computer, My dauhgter's laptop, when it began. All at once there was a crazy bolt of lightening that lit up the night and at the exact same time the loudest thunder that I have ever heard. so loud the house shook and i threw the lap top off my lap onto the floor.
I was home alone and i was freaking out!!
The storm went on for hours.

I knew that the lightening must have struck something near by but i could not tell since it was so dark.
anyway, the next day when i was riding my bike home from work, i noticed a weird tree in the field. I got off my bike and walked over to the neighbor's and he showed me the tree in his yard that was literally blown to pieces. SCARY. It was right next door. I went over to touch it and take a piece of the tree home.

I did mess up the computer and that was what was most important to everyone as I was telling the story! I do have some pictures I will download and post so you can see the tree.
