Redbush and family are experiencing the best winter weather they have had since they can remember. The weather has been above normal temps for at least over a month. They don't have much snow, either, so that's a bonus. Her new family arrival Fonzi can enjoy himself in this fine weather without freezing his little mitts off. The birds in Redbush's yard are enjoying their feast of sunflower seeds, and bird fat balls, or suet as some people call it. The holidays have let Redbush eat herself into oblivion, but, she has no New Year resolutions because she finds that she never follows through with them anyway, so, why set herself up for failure again? She is hoping that the weather lasts a lot longer to make winter that much shorter. No, she doesn't miss having a lot of snow, either. Her wish for all of you is to have a happy and healthy 2012.
Redbush and family acquired a new arrival in the past week. Beatle found himself wondering when we were going to take him back. He's now accepted that Fonzi is probably here to stay. Redbush and Mr. Redbush have had to discipline Beatle for acting the dominant role. Beatle is now down to taking him down only 3 time a day instead of 8. He is learning that spending most of his life in his kennel isn't as much fun as tugging on his martin with him, and much more fun than having Redbush tug on it with him. Beatle doesn't realize that Fonzi is growing quickly and retaliation will come just as fast. Redbush has sent you some pictures she has taken of the two, and some Christmas cards that she painted recently for you. She wishes you all a very Merry Christmas, and all the best in 2012!
I live on an acreage with my husband, and two dogs, a shepherd, and a wire-haired fox terrier. My shepherd has been a show dog, and I enjoy taking him to various obedience competitions. I have always enjoyed the wilderness, so, I am constantly taking photos to be used as references for mostly landscape artworks done in oils, acrylics, and watercolours. Usually my artworks are displayed and entered for sale in a couple of different shows a year, and I have done commissions for customers. I have always had a love for animals, especially dogs, and horses.
