It Snowed!

No I did not take photos yet after shoveling for seven hours in 24 hour period I was too tired to snap a photo really that tired and I fell again.  I told him to return my boot cleats he had bought me as I usually am very steady sadly yesterday I was not!  I am OK bad bruise that will heal in time I have enough going on never mind see another doctor.

So today I will share some more shots from our day before the storm at the coast.  We went for a long walk to see the seals and snowy owls maybe an eagle or two.  Mostly seals and gulls as it was cold and windy and I knew I would need my strength for the storm clearing so we were only outside for two hours in it but JT had a great time with me as I did her then we watched her daddy look for treasure.  Oh I did change my photo on all my sites to the same photo except for my Friends of Living and Loving Facebook page so no longer will you see a shot of him bent over digging treasure but he is.
So here are a few shots of JT and maybe a landscape or two sorry if photos are too large and take forever to load I will work on that next time I upload. I need the largest format to sell and do not want 3, 4, or 5 of the same photos in my computer all in different sizes I am computer illiterate
so I do things the easiest way I can to find the photo I want to share with you and just click on insert photo.

Seeing him digging down on the beach thinking she would take me there silly girl she is fearless.
Image

She had never paid attention to the seawall but on this cold day feeling no pain she jumped up on her own and wanted to walk it.  Seems as she gets older I may have to watch her more.

Image

A pretty place to sit  and watch  a sunset and a group of very loud seals
Image

back to the truck to wait for the sunset and go home and await the storm good thing they brought dinner for the gulls
Image

Can not wait till I get back to the sea

Winters we have the place to ourselves brrrrrrrr

Shaking Off The Cold

Shaking Off The Cold

New England Gull on a frozen granite wall along the Atlantic Ocean in New Hampshire.

January Third In New England

I loaded the cameras charged batteries into each one and added them to the huge bag to keep them safe.

I put JT’s collar on her as I do each time we venture from the yard.

This time we climbed into the already warm truck as it was horrid out.

I needed to make a trip into Portsmouth area.  Newington actually was my first stop.

Have you heard about Habitat For Humanity I am sure you have, well they have a re-store there and as it goes to a good cause I thought I would start there for things I needed in the house.  Wow! I will be back and I hope enough people support them so it stays open for a very long time.  They had what I was looking for and even things I needed but had no idea till I got there so I did not come prepared with the measurements I would need.  See they sell windows and doors and lots of them for $5.00, $10 and $20 each!  I have a foggy plant/greenhouse type window beside my desk which is only good for light other than that it is useless after over 30+ years. It is time for a large window with screen or as my man suggested maybe we can make a door there and add a wooden porch just on the other side,  see I was not the only one who got excited here.  OH the possibilities!

He also found a small light weight snow thrower on wheels that we were promised worked great but to keep the receipt in case it didn’t. My Mom bought us one for the roof and though it is a Toro and it works nice to make paths for JT and the birds I would hate to leave it on the roof now this one he got is light and we can wrap in a small tarp and I bought a new Bright Green bungee cord to secure it to one of the 3 chimneys.  Actually 2 of them will never have smoke coming out of them and with coal stove still needing a plate before I use it safely you get the picture anywhere up there will work.  Yes there is snow up there again another 10 to 12 inches unless the wind blew it off.  It was 20 below last night and now at 9:30 AM it has climbed up top minus 5 F.

Now the one thing I went to this store to look for was a ceiling fan-light kit.  I figured as people remodel up here on the coast they would change those out too.  We found blades, and parts but not what I really wanted so as we headed out for him to by the snow tool he says “Look!”  There to my right was a shelf with eight complete fans.  Mine is 30 years old and seems to have been tightened as much as it can be and with these new bulbs we use when they get shaken they do not last long.  Well with so many to pick from I could not decide. So he did.  I paid for the fan and back out to the truck for JT who was waiting patiently and the truck was warm sitting in the sun. Now to gas up the truck as you see the prices were .08 cheaper per. gallon then 20 miles back home.

I was driving so I decided a detour of sorts would be nice after all I had not one camera but three!  We knew the beach had been battered at midnight and at noon as high tide arrived so I decided to take the scenic ride along the ocean so much for the savings at the gas pump.  JT loves the beach as much as us but I never told her we were going but her nose told her we were going someplace she loved. She was no longer laying across the rear seat she was sitting up and waiting!

As we got closer we saw the roads had been swamped with sea water as well as lots of rocks and boulders.  It had actually been closed for hours but now open I was still uncertain about continuing but with tide being now 3 hours before I forged onwards with a happy dog in the back seat with her head out the window.  Brrrr I did say it was horrid right.

I drove into the nasty slop as he cringed for his truck.  OH I heard him say “Now it will need to be washed.”  lol time to toughen up this Honda!

Now come the photos as you know I usually I try to add some eye candy to make up for the less than eloquent words.

Image

The clouds in the distance are from the storm that raged through leaving friends with 20+ inches of snow and us with 10 to 12.
You can see that the sea is still churning and whipping the surf into a frothy scene.  Nice for photos but not nice to be out here.  JT was in awe over the simplest of things.  Her beach was covered with frozen sea water which she spent the 5 min. while I shot these images smelling.

I swear I do not know how these gulls do this with fast food joints just across the marsh.

Image

Poor things left outside to bear the brunt of the most unbearable of weather.  I even saw some out riding on the waves and I thought my life was tough NOT!!!!

Here are a few more shots ,see if you can feel the cold day though one shot I added warmth too, can you tell which one?  All my shots are available now on cards and prints for your home and even on pillows and ties!

Image

Trying to shake off the cold poor thing lousy photo as I was walking up to the car I was trying to capture them and not fall.

Image

Image

Image

Image

I was blustery and frigid but so worth the effort to make our way through the sloop of slushy sea water and rock that had come up and over onto our coastal route and washed more of our beautiful beaches away.

Now a photo of our place yesterday
Image

I hope she will always enjoy what ever way we spend our day with her.  She will be eight on Mother’s Day and I want to always do things to see her filled with as much joy as she gives us.

Have a great weekend!

The day started rainy and socked in with think fog here in New England yesterday,  while so many suffered in horrible cold and snowy conditions.  We will take what we can left of this year, before we too must huddle together and keep ourselves warm.

A few years ago I took a class with Mom on fusing glass with a wonderful teacher who has since passed away.  She had told us about a woman in Maine who taught wire wrapping,  so we could make our pieces we did,  look even nicer and go from glass into jewelry pieces. Well that winter we went out to Arizona  to hunt for Gold and I met a woman there who took the time to show me a simple wrap that as I got more proficient I could add my own flair to.  Well yesterday the woman in Maine, who I follow through Facebook, had an Open House for her jewelry pieces.  So that was my plan for the day,  a nice quiet ride up into Maine to meet her in person and see if I could find something pretty for a gift as well as to support another starving artist.

The ride was quiet but boyfriend and pup decided to join me as I always find the neatest things when I take the time to venture out from the house.  With winter on our heels I knew days upon days of me being inside would soon arrive. So I packed the dog’s fresh water, my camera bag and off we went.

I made it to her place with no trouble and told them I would be awhile and  for them to go find some fun without me.

So nice to meet Mig.  Her pieces are beautiful.  Such pretty stones and Sea Glass all wrapped in Silver.  We talked and talked and then it was time for me to find the sea.  It was just two miles east maybe less.  The two had gone in search of a place to play but saw the no parking signs everywhere and decided to wait for me.  Well right away I found a beach access road and plenty on empty parking spots, lol it is winter so all rules and regulations go by the way side here.  Dogs could run free!  JT was so excited I have to tell you.  We go walking at the beach but of late we stroll beside the sea on pathways and not on the sandy beaches, see if I take her to the waters edge she wants to do one thing and one thing only CATCH A FRISBEE.  I have a bad shoulder so with loosing weight we take the harder surfaces and walk and walk,  all the while me kicking her stick.  She is OK with anything I am able to do,  she is such a good girl.  She will be eight on Mother’s Day and I want her as healthy as can be so I can have her beside me for as long as I can.  Just check this happy photo out

Image

See what I mean. Happy dog!

Now look what happens when she has to wait for me to stop taking pretty photos of the beach and sea.

Image

You would think I had put her in the down command but actually she really has the need for just one COME.  She is too smart to do anything DUMB.  Yes I am blessed and very proud of my pup.  She is such a good girl.  A elderly couple was out for a walk on the beach and asked if they could give here a dog bone.  I never allow it but they were nice and JT sat pretty and stole their hearts in an instant,  she even took the cookie and ATE IT, she never does.  She must have worked up an appetite from all that running on the beach.  She was one happy dog, I swear I caught a smile or two yesterday.  She does love the beach but hurts too bad in her joints if we play for hours so the half hour worked out perfect.

We took the long way home, back roads all the way back to NH.  I have really seen that section of highway enough in a rig.

As we made our way along the coastline the towns had decked the streets with holiday lights and wreaths, it was beginning to look a lot like Christmas, well all except for the snow that was gladly missing. 

I had timed the day near perfect.  Soon it would be dark enough to see some lights and I headed for the most famous Maine Lighthouse to see them.  It was just a tad too light so I let JT out where she made new friends while I waited with not one but two cameras to catch some action beside the Atlantic.  I took too many photos, wait could that happen ?  Let me show you a couple to end this post.  I even added some to my online gallery for Holiday Cards!  Who doesn’t love the sea and these gorgeous lighthouses that keep the sailors safe.

Day By Day

Wanted to pop in and say Hello, to all those who still follow me.  I am trying to keep up as I slow down.

We are bracing for the winter onslaught to hit and till it does we are trying to prepare the best we can.  Order more propane so the truck won’t get stuck, while he is delivering it. Pulling beaver dams so we do not lose all I worked so hard for, THE HOUSE.  JT and Rhythm are good.  My sweetheart is still getting the old 54/55 Dodge buttoned up to help with snow removal, yesterday we ran 35 miles away to pick up a new heater fan, now to locate defroster hose, in the size needed, so we can keep windows in this old beast clear so he doesn’t destroy the yard.  I hate what the plow does to the land but I hate shoveling in pain even more, so we will do what we have to with light shovels on the roof, maybe find a used electric snow thrower for the roof,  as my Mom suggests.  We have a very old snow blower but I may scrap my Dodge truck with bad tranny to purchase a  new one, just in case we do not get enough snow for the plow now isn’t that a pleasant thought!  I am always thinking.

I do not see the surgeon till the 11th but some good news, I have started to unfreeze the frozen part of the shoulder, not a lot but I see a difference.  The horrible pain of tendon is there but if I use arm slowly it never rears its ugly head.  I hate that pain.  So depending on my options I will see if I can take one more shot to get through the worst of winter and maybe in March if it has not healed I will let him in to repair it,  as our weather will start to look up by then.  See always thinking.

I want to hit the gym every other day.  With only one car, his truck it is hard.  I only have to travel 3 miles each way so it is not bad maybe by spring I could ride a pedal bike that would be awesome.

I have also had a brilliant idea for a business and will apply to the Small Business Association for a loan.  I could get out of this way of life if all goes well so please cross your fingers for me maybe your toes too. Thanks!

Holidays are not the same in this life I live now so just a few pretty things placed around the home to remind me it even on its way.

No children, no close family fun times, I will just be celebrating the birth of Christ this year and buying a small gift for a local child who will need a gift to open on Christmas Day.  I look at what I used to be able to do for so many and now the new reality is charity begins at home.  Save all year for heat and food and an occasional trip to the sea or woods to keep my sanity and not miss my old life so badly which it why I need you to keep the fingers and toes crossed because if all the good thoughts go out maybe just maybe I will have a new path doing good for others in need and getting paid and it is something I can do with my injuries.

Let me leave you with a pretty photo or two to lighten the heaviness of this post I am happy just a realist and life is what it is and there are really millions so much worse off.  Which is why I always show you PRETTY THINGS there is enough ugly out there isn’t there.

The Unraveling
Plum Island
October 10, 2013

Strands of the Plum Island story started to unravel in early autumn. On September 30th Newburyport City Councilor Richard O’Sullivan proposed that the Council release details of a closed-door session it had held about the Plum Island water and sewer system.

The water and sewer system was the reason that so many houses had been remodeled into year round dwellings driving the prices of the houses on the primary dune up from $3,000 to close to a million dollars. But the system had lost pressure on several occasions stranding the homeowners without water or sewer services. Several of the water mains were under the streets that had eroded during the winter storms and nobody knew if the system had failed because of the storms, faulty construction, or both.

The city was trying to decide whether to sue Camp Dresser McKee the engineering firm…

I find that it also leaves her mark upon me

Winter finds me along the edge of the sea

I love taking a quick 20 minuet ride away from all the snow

The ocean and all her fury is the place for me

This year will be awesome as I no longer am filled with worry and woe

We Have Been Walking The Beach

Hi Everyone the three of us have been trying to get out and walk in between snow storms.  We have gone when he goes detecting and he even found more rings.  I lost a few more pounds  but going to Mom’s and she is baking me a cake for my birthday and also has a New England Boiled Dinner is  on the menu for us.  I am blessed to still have her to celebrate with.

I am starting my day off early by getting my haircut,  it is long and always in my face and lately it spends more time up in a clip so now is the time for a change to go with all the  weight loss.  Another year older and still on track to be a better healthier me.  I love reading your blogs when I can get the reader to work.   I am trying to follow you by email so bear with me.  I have placed  almost 400 photos for sale on-line and now as I get ready to go on my 10 day silent retreat I hope I come back  to lots of sales.  I will miss you all when I am gone as much as my dog and family, you bring me much joy in your posts.  I miss doing two a day but as my followers rose in numbers it was hard to keep up but when I come back to it in April , I will be lighter in my heart and body,  they won’t feed us much.  Water and maybe breakfast and a lunch but no supper just tea and fruit at 4 PM them meditate till 9:30 PM we will start each day in meditation at 4 AM.  My son suggested I jump right in the deep end!  So with him having done it to heal his hurt and pain I am looking forward to my gift to myself.  You know I will tell you all about it!

So let me show you what we have been doing while we wait for the next shoe to fall, MORE SNOW!

Surf was wild and dirty

100_5795

Yes that is a pile of thick foam

 

100_5824

What a knucklehead I yell for her to watch out but the FRISBEE  in my hand she is not moving till I threw it .   I don’t think she saw this heading at her.

 

100_5826

Look at her she is covered with the filthy foam, she was not happy when I said she would need a bath.  I am a bad Mommy to but her in tub with Luke Warm Water with pretty smelling soap but she will jump in the filthy sea of FOAM.

Her last catch time to get Daddy’s truck dirty.

Hope to touch base with you  soon

Miss you

New England In Winter Wraps

Hi everyone.  No I am not lost but usually I shovel then suffer in pain but it is the workouts that have me seeing consistent success now at the scale on Tuesdays and is getting me closer to goal which will be a HEALTY weight never scrawny .  I need my strength to make it through my meditation as well as that new English Garden I will be working on if winter ever let’s go of her death grip up here.  No don’t worry just hard on old broken bodies but my sense of humor such as it is will get me to spring  oh and the rains!  Today NH is under the spell of another huge storm and why I am getting rains when others are getting twelve more, heavy wet inches of snow  I have no idea but you know I am so grateful for each and every drop for it is melting our snowpack and snow on the roofs is shrinking too he said it was too slippery to climb up yesterday which worried me with the weight of heavy wet snow ruining so many homes and businesses elsewhere.  Well I sold my conversion van and made another friend.  She too is an author with all of you here I follow and follow me I can surely get my three written!  I sold the van to get cash to fix my pick-up the one with the PLOW kind of late now as the birds are already singing their hearts out looking for the prettiest girls in town.  I will scrub hummingbird feeders again to make sure no dust has gotten into the bags I store them in and get the seeds started for my garden even if I have to grow in 5 gal. buckets or a pallet have you seen that on Pinterest?  I think this year I will even start Sunflowers in egg cartons or yogurt cups as I have plenty of empties and this way after the diet of black oil sunflower seeds I have been going through with my wildlife so far almost 400 lbs. of seed, they will not be able to dig up the ones I hide to line my yard with.  Hard to outsmart wildlife though I am sure something hungry will come for the green growth like us and our salad greens!

 

So how have you all been?  Life good or hard right now?  I love hearing from you all and that some of you are regular visitors to my Portfolio Blog  please me.  You can comment on any blog.  Tell me if you like certain photo or what you don’t like remember the only thing I have ever been a professional at is a driver, a big rig driver so you can help by chiming in .  Some of you know I have been selling my photos on FAA under  Eunice Miller  and that I even set up a Facebook page that will link my photographs I have placed for sale right to their site in most cases.  If you are artists that have begun to follow my blog thank you.  Blogging has made me a better photographer still not anything to write home about but me and my little Kodak Easy Share once in a while capture something pretty and moving to some besides me for which I am thankful for isn’t that why we decide to step out of our nice comfy spot at home and reach out to the world at large with art and words.  I would not have gotten to know you all had I not taken that very first step last Memorial Day weekend.  I am blessed by each and every one of you and I think you already know that by what we have shared.

 

Now it wouldn’t be a Living and Lovin  blog without a photo or two so this is what I have been thinking of

100_5574

 

My Lilacs in full bloom calling out to all the insects and pretty butterflies that adore them as much as I do even Ron loves them  JT loves to smell them she is a girl you know and all girls love pretty flowers.

100_5328

 

For the bees to arrive so my fruit trees will bless us and the wildlife who also love fruit.

 

100_5295

 

Now the Forsythia that are all over this place we call home are sure signs of SPRING arriving.

 

Now for this year along with the new English Garden area Ron will make me a sculpture as he was a welder for 35 years before retiring early with injuries.  I am thinking something in pretty copper but maybe a mix if they can be put together with the arc from his welding rod.  He is the pro so I will let him do his thing and praise the heck out of him because he is a good man to put up with me and so much sadness though it has gotten so much better since I have stopped hiding.  So look for a blog on his artist work in the future here.

I will also divide my Hostas  for an upcoming Garden Club Plant Sale in early May and take some new Lilacs and move them to my berm on the eastern side of my property  I will add some  shoots of Forsythia on berm as well because they will look beautiful as they grow and drape along this area with the Lilacs up above with a few little pretty shaped Pines.  It will provide me with Privacy yes but mostly block the Orange Fence(plastic snow fence) from my view while I sit and tend to my garden since I do not see her as ever taking it down,  even though it sits on the towns right a way.

So for now I will look and deal with the CRUD of Winter with visions of a beautiful spring!

 

100_5639

 

We will hang out by the sea a lot till them even on a lousy weather day we can always find a ray of hope here along the water’s edge.

 

Take care everyone and again stop in at anyone of my places here on the world-wide web, you are more than welcome.

 

Another Storm Brewing

100_5702

 

I took this photo yesterday along the river but facing out to sea.  It was beautiful over here, less wind then when JT and I tried to join her daddy on the ocean side, man was it cold and a very brisk wind.  Cold we can take but that constant wind is not good and I am bundled up, well  all but my weather-beaten face and to protect her from the harsh elements I have gone through my whole life,  we walked over here to take shelter from the storm that was brewing.

What a deceiving day.  It was so pretty to look at.  Made me what to shower and get dressed and head out with him.  I was down another two pounds on Tuesday weigh-in so I wanted to keep up the hard work.  Funny you see something working even if it causes pain I am the type that has always been tough and just pushed through it.  I am not saying it is smart , just saying more about who I am.

I have one month left before I leave and want to take in all my world has to offer.  I want to walk and spend time with them.  I will miss the three of them,  who share this home with me.  My son said he missed his pup but knowing she was with friends allowed him to take on the challenge himself so I will let go and trust.  JT loves me as much as Mike’s dog adores him but Mike does spend time during the day without his girl and JT is always beside me lol I am her person.  She watches over me and protects me even when I am not in danger so maybe after she gets over missing me for first few days she will become a dog again.   Something tells me we will be like that commercial that runs here,  of the lady coming back from war with her huge dog greeting her on the ground covering her with kisses, will also be played out here,  hell being on the floor meditating for 10 days 14 hours a day will have the ground being normal for me.  Wish me luck!  lol

 

OK back to the REAL STORM BREWING this morning I woke to a weather report saying maybe we would miss a big snowstorm Thank You for listening to my prayers this time now they say just three to four inches but wet snow this time.  JT loves catching snowballs she will be so happy.  Now I will show you a few photos from the river as the sea.  They are not my best and I am sorry I was freezing and will blame them on the wind!

Now look at the next pictures don’t them make it seem like it is just a beautiful day to SUNTAN

100_5707

Not a care in the world.

100_5706

A Loner lol no room for anyone else on this ones beach.

 

OK want to see some more again sorry shaking too much for really pretty ones but I am sure you will love them.

100_5680

 

Now the mighty Atlantic Ocean was really churning and so frothy.  The storm was still a twelve-hour ride away down in Virginia.   So I really thought we would be getting another NEMO like storm.  Looks can be deceiving right beautiful blue sky pretty colorful sea. BRRRRRRR

 

100_5662

Wind blown JT waits for me to throw a hefty stick to her.  No FRISBEE in these winds.

100_5660

 

Well you can see she is tiring of me and my photos time to go for a walk

 

100_5655

 

100_5714

 

Have a nice weekend
 

 

OFF TO THE BEACH!

100_3657

Well I am on my second cup of coffee  in preparation for a walk with JT along the coast in a few hours at low tide.

Did you hear what we have arriving tomorrow,  SNOW and lots of it!  They are saying a true Nor East’r  with maybe 2 feet of SNOW and winds up to 45 mph YIKES.  Praying we keep our power.

My back is killing me already never mind after we shovel this huge place and the ROOF.   I can’t forget the roof, not after hearing it crack on New Years Eve.

Man I wish I was rich and famous  no not really but just so I could get the tranny repaired in the truck.  Pretty new plow on it and the $700 I put out to a local man to put new seal in it lasted less than one mile to my door and when I called to tell him it let go all over my beautiful yard he said “Looks like you will have to call a transmission shop”.  Just my luck.

I love when mechanics do this to woman, NOT!

So I maybe gone from my blog for a bit once it starts to snow  as I will shovel while Ron snow blows but I will go out every 4 inches and just push snow or that is the plan till I have to climb on top of the house. Now they said we will be getting 2 inches an hour that is a lot of light fluffy blowing snow.

So yes off to the beach to walk and find peace and a few pretty photos maybe.  We will go back to see all the damage this storm will bring to the coastline but that won’t be till maybe Monday if they allow us on the roads by then.   They say the sea will be high with the moons influence.

You all ever here about the Blizzard of 78 we had in this part of the country well it is an anniversary oh joy

To all who follow me,  stay safe be it the rains some will get and snows for the rest of us .

Talk to you soon

Eunice

ps the photo is of a piece of sea glass I wrapped to wear around my neck I wonder if I will find any good treasure to use in jewelry making.  He will detect the shore so I know he will.

Cold Along The Coast

I wanted to go for a walk and it read 8 F here in the yard and it didn’t feel too bad,  after what it had been like for 3 days here  well below  0 F,  with nasty winds.  The kind that feel like they are cutting right into your skin.

So we bundled in layers all except for the poor dog.  I wish she didn’t hate coats.

It was a beautiful clear day a perfect one for a drive.  Once I turned towards the coast the roads were all ours maybe they knew better.

 

Put a coat on to check these out or you will catch a CHILL

The Beach was all ours from 2 PM till 4 PM

 

 

100_4956

 

After I loaded the dog and my camera in the truck and warmed it up I went back to see if he was still OK and a pilot had placed a HUGE HEART up over the sea

it was beautiful but you will have to take my word for it unless I can find it on the web cam and show you. I was not going to run to the warm truck and go back out though now I am kicking myself  as it was so pretty.

 

 

It was THIS COLD!

 

100_5025

On February 2 ND and 3 RD  hundreds will jump in the Atlantic Ocean,  along  Hampton Beach,   in Hampton NH (there is a WEB CAM) they call it the Penguin Plunge for Special Olympics

I will get some photos of it if it is not as cold as today WHICH WAS NUTS!  We did have a nice walk and he did find treasure though brrrrr still trying to THAW!

Boyfriend is hunting the sea for treasure and JT and I are getting some much-needed walking in.

She loves when I tell her we are going to the beach.

She runs to the door wagging her tail then runs to get her Frisbee .  She is so very happy I can see it in her eyes.

Wind recently was 45 mph but she never gave a hint that is was bothersome to her.  It was warm and so walking we went along the

Merrimack River where it meets the sea.

I never looked for shells or sea glass.

I spent the hour and half walking with her and kicking a stick as the winds would have taken her Frisbee far, far away. She wanted it and I said find a stick so off on the mission she went up ahead to find a good one.

We came upon a group of men, they looked kind of suspicious to me,  even JT lowered her head and growled softly.  They were huddled under a tree  and as I got closer I saw the spotting scopes and HUGE camera lenses all pointed into the Fir trees.  I asked what they had cornered in the tree   the older man said “Birds”.  I sort of felt bad for the bird lol no damn privacy!  Now the photo of the men could have been used in a “Birding Book” or front page of paper on a slow news day.

 

After our walk and play were done, we went to sit in the truck and take a break from the wind when I saw a woman walking towards us and the wooden walkway with her tripod and cameras.  She saw JT with her pretty face watching her through the open window and she proceeds to start snapping photos of her, what she did not know is  that JT is already FAMOUS,  with  her own followers.  We started chatting and seems she tries to capture birds for Audubon and that was why all the men with huge lens were there.   They have groups that meet and hunt the birds down to photograph.  I see so much being present  had they sat on this bench see what they could have caught in their viewfinder

I know you have probably seen the shells that sit along the high tide mark but do you know about Border Collie Art?

She is so well-bred that she leaves an amazing piece of artwork, all along the beach,  as we make or way onto it

for a game of Frisbee.

Can you see her moves up above?

On and on she goes

Round and Round

Catching it

Dropping it at my feet and heading back out for another loop to get ready to catch it again.

I know some of you may tire of my talk about this pup but she really is what keeps us smiling day in and day out pain and all.

She is a beautiful artist,  well at least in our eyes.

Other dogs just come to PLAY she seems to have a method to her madness as do I.

So yes in January we still look for treasure he with a machine and me with a camera.

It was windy and cold but we bundled up and left at 10 AM and finished there by 3 PM

Tired and cold from all the exercise we got, which they say is Good For You, we headed home for dinner which I

still had to whip up.  While it cooked I made some Chi Tea and heated up the bag we have for sore muscles and

sat with JT and did her shoulder area. She was again hobbling hard makes me so sad to see her in the pain we are in.

I know she has a toenail that was injured and is growing out that I trim weekly(all of them actually)but it appears this

jump and leaping in the sand is sadly taking a toll on her since her injury this past summer.  Her and I will walk daily even if I do not

want to leave my warm home.  With weight off of us both we have got to feel a little less pain when out having a day of fun.

The whole time we played she never showed a sign of pain.  I did stop Frisbee play after 20 min. took her for her water then headed out

with a leash on her for a cool down and I mean cool down on this January day.  She walked and played with her stick with me still no sign. She is

very stoic when she is playing with her Mommy.  When we got home and I went into the kitchen and Ron said she was in some really bad pain. She

Came and sat with me in the kitchen as I cooked supper and made her supper.  She came to bed with me and the heating bean bag which I held on

her till she felt good enough to jump down to the floor on her dog bed.

This morning as I downloaded photos from our trip to the coast,  there were no signs of injury as she played and played with me. Walking later when

the sun has warmed the air some.  Have a great day!

Two Beaches In One Day

100_3347

We arrived just after 8:00 AM

The surf was wild so we hung around to see if it would  start to head out enough to look for treasure

100_3384

 

She found a stick on the beach

HOW DOES SHE DO THAT?  I left the Frisbee in the truck as she has been hurting after playing at the beach lately so much for best laid plans lol but she was so happy to see the ocean I could not say NO.

 

Check out this wave action

 

100_3353

 

Is that a WAVE or a Wall heading towards us and where are the surfer dudes

 

100_3403

 

I was hoping to catch the sun out over the ocean but it never showed up

 

We climbed back in truck and took a ride two beaches further north

 

100_3451

 

Even without the sunshine we had an amazing day at the coast.

JT and I walked and walked slow and steady and my honey found a diamond ring with  a dark Blue stone all around the center stones very pretty and MY SIZE

 

100_3472

 

There are so many rules and regulations now that they are trying to spruce up this place

 

100_3422

Being the REBEL I am I broke a couple of these today

 

Come on though dead of winter not many souls out and NO DOGS OR DIGGING how can we treasure hunt with our cute little pup   well as long as these animals are allowed I will continue to break the rules

Well they say there will be another coastal storm brewing just off our shoreline,  so it is time to walk the edge, as the tide turns and heads out and look and see what it has left behind for us.  It will be sunny and in the 40′s what a perfect BEACH DAY   JT likes to walk me into the water so maybe I will even be barefoot.

Dozer On The Beach

They are back at it.
Digging sand up out of an inlet and pushing it back up onto the main beach.
You would think we could find some really neat treasure here but we think they have a screen that it passes through so they can KEEP IT ALL!

Winters wrath will play out as always

What they place back up on top will surly get sucked back out to sea

I just wish they would remove their SCREENS

lol

It is Tuesday here in NH and we had snow and not it is pouring out.

Rain in December,  a week from Christmas,  yes this is a much warmer world than it was when I was young.

No degree needed here to see plainly that things have certainly changed in my world.

Stay safe out there where you are and hug your loved ones a little tighter and tell them you love them.

Newcastle NH

Cold November Day

 

 

 

 

Newcastle NH

Cold but Pretty

 

 

New England Lighthouses

2 Lighthouses in 1 Stop!

 

Well I had to go into the city of Portsmouth, that is NH,  today for supplies to finish all the earrings I finished making yesterday.  I asked him to grab his detector and I got the dogs water thermos filled and her Frisbee and leash into the truck.  Portsmouth sits along a river that empties into the sea.  So we were all off to have a nice day.

 

My boyfriend had his coat on and JT she did too but I had two shirts on and a very light jacket and I have to say I froze.  JT on the other hand was in the water before I knew she would do it,  she is so smart I forget she is still a DOG !  So I moved our game of catch far enough from the edge so she would not sneak back in.

 

We met a nice man with a 8 month old  puppy who wanted to play with JT but if you can’t throw something to her she doesn’t want anything to do with you,  yes spoiled for sure.  We also met a woman who was there to walk around the parking lot over and over till she had 3 miles under her belt.  She loved JT.

 

Now it was cold and raw and yes I had her off leash to play catch and had bags to pick up after her , should I need to.   I did not think there would be a problem ,well as we placed her into the truck a really nice, local police officer, told us she could be there but on leash only and that he could detect the beach but only from high tide mark to the sea.  I love this place and will come again till May when she is no longer allowed but I will bring a stick and her leash  and walk around and around till her and I have 2 or more miles done.  The other beaches we go to allow her to play,  as she is better behaved than most children.

No tickets thankfully, just letting us know as we do not live near there.

All in all still a nice but COLD DAY…..brrrr

 

 

Another View of Rye Harbor

Lobster Boats

 

Brrr it was so cold this morning but my other half asked me to wake him by 5:00 AM so he could head over this way.  He wanted to metal detect during low tide.  I know I should have gone, if for no other reason than to watch the sunrise and get a few photos to share.  I was warm and toasty and looking forward to some coffee, which I would have to pass on since there are no public bathrooms open in this area at this time of the year.  Silly really when you see the amounts of residents and tourists that walk our shores each and every day. Snow, rain or sleet looks the same as a warm spring day. They flock here by the droves.  Rye is loved by dog owners as well as surfers.  See both are allowed here.

 

I see where the Northwest will get snow and rains, CA too.  Wy and ID will receive snow, just what they are looking forward to in Jackson Hole as their mountains are getting ready to open up their lifts.  We have mountains open for snowboarding and skiing over here in the Northeast as it has been so cold they have been putting down a nice base.  They say by Thursday, Thanksgiving, it will be BEAUTIFUL!  At our home it will be in the 50′s,  though we will share our meals where our pup JT was born, so it may be only in the 40′s there but that is still OK by me,  any day I do not have to shovel my way out the door is a Good Day!  Texas will enjoy temps in the 80′s oh how I wish I was in the BIG D!  I really must get into this winter mindset or I will never leave the house.  When JT and I went out to fill the feeders,  for our feathered friends,  she must have loved the icy frost on the pads of her paws  as she ran to her basketball and wanted us to have a game!  I was just in slippers and a nice warm robe so you know I said “Latter JT” and headed to the door!  We have a huge basket of nice clean as well as warm toys just inside the door for her to play with.

 

 

Have a great day or night everyone

Beautiful November Day in Rye NH

Rye NH

November and boats still in the water in Rye NH

 

I couldn’t wait to share this beautiful day with each of you, as it is mid November and days such as this one will be far and few between.

I took it last week as we went to walk and metal detect the local beach, this time north of us. We have only 18 miles of coastline in NH and for the most part we do have access to our shore.

We have rocky areas but here and there we have sandy beaches to walk, suntan on, even fly kites.

In this stretch we have an Ice Cream stand, boatyard and a state park or two.  It is not built up with lots of businesses or homes though some of the homes along 1A are gorgeous there are still some built very modestly.  They are down to earth people who enjoy the shore on a bright warm summer day or in the middle of a nor’easter.  We really are hardy souls up this way.

This was November, Veterans Day and it was 70 degrees F.  Wow what a gift for those who are not looking forward to many months of cold and snow, me being one of them.  I will walk the beach this winter but I will bundle up and not stay out there too long, as JT doesn’t wear boats.

I will always have the camera with me but you knew that. I will try to show you another season of NH life.  You have seen all my pretty spring flowers, summer beach scenes and of course the fall color we are known for but winter in NH you will just have to see .

We are here for the FOUR SEASONS after all, me on the other hand wish I headed south with my Hummingbirds.

 

Peace and Love

Eunice

This is just the “crowds favorite”  sandcastle.

There will be judges who will pick the top ones,  who will get the CASH PRIZES.

Do you have sandcastle contests where you live?

I love seeing what they come up with year after year.

They work under bright lights, into the night this is when we go to just enjoy , sunrise is when I go for the photos.

 

Hope you enjoy playing  in the sand when you hit the beach.

They say it could really be bad in these parts or barely not much at all.

We want the treasure to get tossed up onto the beach.

What we do not want to happen is for it to stall.

As the rain falls from Sandy you know our stream will rise .

He is getting a boat repaired that will haul all he will need to clear the way.

I do not know about you but I will be keeping my eyes to the sky.

The last thing I want to worry about should it be bad is where we will stay.

 

Stay safe!   I know many of  also live along the east coast and I will be thinking of you all as this heads northward.

Usually you will never see a person here all alone

There are people walking hand in hand

Children darting in and out of the waves

So far I have not seen much damage to this beaches land

Lately it is this place I seem to crave

Soon I will head north for this beautiful place

Following the back roads along the coast of Maine

There is no reason to take the highway and race

I come up here to stop from going insane

I will collect shells be certain of that

As I walk this section it is nice to see it so flat

Today the Sky and Sea were such a pretty Blue.

Tropical Storm Remnants Coming

Atlantic Ocean

Rolling in

Not sure how many in the Northeast saw the sun rise today, as the remnants of Issac are about to leave us with

rain measured in inches.  Word is that somewhere between 2 to 5 inches could fall here.  Last year Irene,  another I

named storm.   We will only know when it is over if any roads succumbed to the weather.

My river was low so hopefully she stays with in her banks and I lose no more land to flooding , though they plan

on releasing water from a local lake as well,  to “Watch the Flow”.  I hope they use some common sense which seems to

be lacking in these parts of late.

I wish I could give all of you who have been in such horriffic droughts, my share of water.

Sea Inspired Bath

Glass

 

Glass in every form draws me to it.  A long time ago I would walk the shore in tears and along the way I would stoop to pick up “treasure” from the sea.

Shells, Sea Glass and even empty crab shells. I also picked up old items from lobster trap lines.  Sand Dollars fill a jar and may locations throughout the

rest of this house.  It has been suggested I have TOO MANY items when it comes to COLLECTIONS.    I live here though and I see more room to add a jar of glass or a bowl of

seashells.

 

I was in a bad wreck in 2000 where I was rear ended by a tour bus(casino) and got so depressed I decided one day to sit on the toilet seat cover with glue in one had and a jar

of sea glass.  I proceeded to glue the glass all over a window, beside the toilet,  for that stained glass look minus the lead solder. Here are a few photos of it as I was asked if I

had any for them to see and some other items that call my bathroom HOME.  I painted the walls a pale Pink and have barn board  accents in there as well.  RUSTIC you could

say.

 

 

Privacy is taken care of.

 

Every ocean needs a Mermaid

 

My Sea Captain,  a friends mother made that he thought would love living with me.

 

 

Sea Gull and Shells

Earrings, Neckclasses  and Bracelets made to order by ME

 

 

Fish too,  as I am a March child as well

 

 

Tooth Brush holder from a  Natural  Sea Treasure

 

While yard saling in Portsmouth one day I saw this sitting on a table and it was for sale.

I turned it over and saw that their child had made it with their own  hands and there was no longer

a place in the family home, so it sits front and center in MINE, it fits perfectly with me.

 

Another found and saved piece of Ocean ART  maybe I am a HOARDER    NOT!!

I am a protector of the precious thrown to the wayside pieces.

 

 

Of course I have a Lighthouse and Plant as well

 

Now I did allow him to add a piece he picked, and where from and it was AZ Art

 

I love men and Cowboy Art so I did not fight this piece at all

 

Well I did not show all the art or shells but you get the idea that I love the sea.

I may add shelves , then some protected pieces of my photography,  maybe some waves

and a sunrise  on a different color wall, all I know is I love GLASS

and the sea, as you can also clearly see .

She is tired and happy so it will be no problem, well till these people

Beach Ball.  It was bigger than she.  She watched and watched as  they kicked it about

but no one called for her to join them in the game.

 

She doesn’t understand that all toys are not hers. We spoil her too much I am told.

I tell her it is OK  and almost time for us to go home.  They were all getting ready to go…
