February 2011 ~

What's On For February ?

1st of February today, The month of hearts ~ Valentines Day, the month of my supposed to be 13th Wedding Anniversary & the month of hubby's birthday as well . Occassions I don't enjoy celebrating anymore during the last few years. Everytime the event approaches, they never fail to just make me feel so sad, frustrated and I'm so annoyed by it. So what I do is to tell myself that they just don't matter to me anymore ... at this point of time most of you would had known why .
 Life is not meant to be constantly happy ... so I'm learning to deal with it each and everyday !
I had acquired the ability on how to keep myself  busy , had discovered how to provide a dash of entertainment to get rid of boredom trying to creep in me when I'm at home and having a bit of rest from housework. Got not much friends around here in Perth other than those I'd been communicating with in online sites . since I moved here in Perth, I'd been more to myself doing house chores. The work keeps my body and mind constantly moving in and out of the house. But truthfully, I'm still lonely here and missing things in my married life. How it sucks !So I'm very thankful that I have my internet friends and my adorable beads which had been keeping me company and supporting me these days.

I had spent the morning till noon today trying to finish a necklace composed of only red and white color Swarovski Crystals with the Valentine's Day theme in mind. Well hey, Valentine's Day is coming in like 12 days. I need to create something especial for it. I came up with these new designs pictured below. I'll be making matching earrings too . They'll be available in my ebay site this weekend.

So watch and check out my ebay store .

But anyway, February is the second month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars. It is the shortest month and the only month with fewer than 30 days. The month has 29 days in leap years, when the year number is divisible by four (except for years that are divisible by 100 and not by 400 in the Gregorian calendar). In common years the month has 28 days.
~February symbols ~

February birth flower is the violet (Viola) and the common primrose (Primula vulgaris)

Its birthstone is the amethyst. It symbolizes piety, humility, spiritual wisdom, and sincerity.

 Amethyst is the official birthstone for February as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. It is also the birth stone for the Zodiac sign of Pisces. See the birthstone table for additional references to this stone on alternative birthstone charts. Amethyst is suggested as a gem to give on the 4th, 6th and 17th wedding anniversaries.

Amethyst ~ is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewelry. The name comes from the Ancient Greek ἀ a- ("not") and μέθυστος methustos ("intoxicated"), a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness; the ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethyst and made drinking vessels of it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.
