Redbush has been delinquent about her blogs for the past several months. Spring and summer have been busy (lazy) for her, but she knows that all of you have been just as busy if not busier. At any rate, she hopes you are all having a lovely summer so far. This little visitor to Redbush's deck has been frequent. He, or she has been the only one that Redbush knows of having his dinner, or breakfast regularly. He is usually an early morning riser, and Redbush doesn't always see him although she sees that his sugar water keeps diminishing by the day. Mr. Redbush changes his mixture every other day for fear of ants and bugs infiltrating the container. He seems quite relaxed to feed while often being watched through the deck window. Redbush hopes you are all enjoying the wonderful summer months.
The weather in Redbush's world has been absolutely balmy and phenomenal! She and her family are lovin' it! They are also celebrating the fact that they have some wood for next winter inspired by the neighbour and her husband. Redbush has been chopping, and piling, chopping and piling, until her biceps, or should she say the absence of, have been feeling the pain. Actually she is realizing pain in her lower calves as well. She didn't figure she had actually used those muscles. This pain comes in spite of the fact that Redbush really does attempt to do the treadmill and some various other dreaded exercises most mornings. Her buddies Beatle and Fonzi are the supervisors of the wood chopping and piling events, so, you know how much they contribute. She is lovin' the fact that the original woodpile is now a chopped pile, until of course they get more. She hopes the latter isn't for a while. Redbush has added some photos of the above as well as a valentine painting for you. She wishes all her bloggers a belated Happy Valentines Day!
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.
