So they say to describe our view out the back door or window to a stranger not sure any who stop here any more are strangers.
You have all seen the barn where I like to hide and do my Art work.
You have seen this place from up on the roof when it is covered with many feet of snow in winter.Most if they have been here have seen the wild birds and pretty flowers too.
So how would I describe this place to a stranger from another world?
Simply stated these days it is my piece of Heaven on Earth

The last day of March I was not allowed a midnight snack as I would finally go in to have the shoulder addressed.

April Fool’s Day no wonder I was moved up no one else wanted to take a chance I on the other hand was hoping for less pain and more use.

I had PT the next day yes real quick and tomorrow the stitches come out and more work twice a week for 6 to 8 weeks will begin in earnest.

I have a ice cuff I put on after exercises so I have no need for medication.

Life is good!

My son had another show last night in WY and I sat at home painting Roses he had Rose Art to sell and neither of us planned any of it I just decided to chill before surgery with a few hours of painting with a Artist from Russia that lives here locally in NH  her name is Marina Forbes.

So all is well just been doing nothing much at all really

Today the plan is to ride down into the city and meet one of the Bloggers I met when I first started mine here.  Maybe a quick lunch somewhere and my man can hunt the coastline and JT can meet one of her admirers :)
I will stop by my Moms on way out of Boston as she just had a procedure the same day I did.

Love to all of you

What I did before surgery they did not turn out looking like the Rose in my course  but  I relaxed and that was my only mission in all that pain

 

Sunrise and Wild Turkey

No morning and actual Wild Turkey greeted me as I woke late this morning.

A few ducks joined in as well and a random Hawk and a bunch of my small birds who love the full feeders I hang out for them.
I even saw a male Finch and he was wearing his bright Yellow outfit. I can now relax. Surgery is set for the 17th of April.  Everything is just about perfect except we are set to get slammed again this time some snow but 40 to 70 mph winds depending on which station you listen too.  So I will fill the feeders and keep the shovels by the door tonight and come morning be prepared to feed a flock of  25 to 35 wild turkeys along with all my doves, juncos, black birds, blue jays, cardinals, chickadees, woodpeckers, nuthatches, robins, titmouse and the ducks.  When it is nasty they all stop by to see me for something to eat now all I have to worry about is keeping the hawk from picking them off.  I have trained JT to bark and let me know when she sees one and then I just step outside and off it goes.  I have hundreds of acres beside and behind me it can shop at.

So here is a couple of shots of the place today.

Watercolors

I took one, three hour class to see if I would like painting again and to see what Watercolor was all about.  My teacher was terrific and from Russia.  It was during the games in Sochi.

I had signed up on really a whim and on the night I attended, at a local high school adult education course I was not alone.  There were seven of us and one of which was there to learn Acrylics so as she learned so did we.  The class was fun and fast paced as I would soon learn so was the art of Watercolor.

She taught us about resist, loading up your brush with a juicy mix of pigment and how important it was to have lots of fresh, clean water too.

At the end of the class we had new skills.  We had been taught a way with in which to relax and let go. To feel your work as it flowed onto our 140 pound cold pressed paper.  Life was good till I got home then the fun began!

Each day I try to take an hour sometimes more and sit with my brushes, pigments and a huge bucket of water and do some technique.
I have a friend who is amazing with her paints and she gives me tips and links to videos on YOUTUBE to help me learn even more.  So I am learning and watching and trying and will do so probably for as long as there is paper for me to lay a stroke of paint onto. 

I am not proficient of course having just had a three hour lesson but I am having so much fun that I signed up to go to my teachers studio twenty minutes away and see what else I can learn from a pro.  I am having trouble with pine trees as I do not want to paint a real tree but really an obscure, sort of abstract one.  I know it will come in time as I pick up new equipment here and there I am sure good brushes will really make the difference.  My friend usually does her masterpieces on 300 pound cold pressed paper but for now till I learn the steps in getting the image in my head out onto the paper and I am happy I will stick to the cheaper ones.

I can not leave you without sharing one I did now don’t laugh I am new to this usually I just paint the house and barn!

Take a lesson on something new at a local school and just have FUN!!!!  Life is hard enough on most of us.  I am calling doctor today to book my surgery for shoulder to get it done with to hopefully lessen all the pain of the last seven months the heck with the snows that fall and trust me there will be snow here in New England but as I have been watching the birds pair up and chase each other I know I can handle what ever mother nature throws our way.

So here is my first attempt  with cheap paper, cheap store bought watercolors and some salt and rubber cement :)
Image

I also have visitor’s not like you all do mine usually are very wild,  here are a few lousy shots through the window as light was leaving for the day.  A Mother Deer and her young.  She looks healthy but not pregnant so maybe there will be no fawn prancing in the yard but I must remember this winter was brutal for not only us but them as well.

Have a great week everyone and stay safe in your travels.

All of my stories, tips and information move forward from the first post. Therefore, because the blog’s format is backwards, this last entry has become the conclusion! However, because it is the “Home Page,” it is important for me to explain a few things that I have shared earlier in my blog.

THANK YOU

I have to thank you for doing the poll on Orchids for me. A couple came about ahead but not by a landslide I think it says you are all so kind lol or that you also adore Orchids.  I am in good company.  Again thanks for your help.  Now if it got warm I could take their photo in natural light :) 

For all of you facing mudslides, heavy snow and monsoons please stay safe.  I will say a prayer as March begins that weather settles down this is going to be a scary thaw otherwise.

We have had a few days where it got warm,  well warm after what we have dealt with.  Then we had ice and I mean horrible stuff! We would chop and chop when the sun warmed it and then while we rested each evening,  it would freeze up all over again.

I know before long it will be just and ugly memory.   Soon we will  be seeing  joy spread across our country and gardens bloom once again.  It will fill us with hope and warmth,  which is where I am at today.

Some of you who  follow me on Facebook know the story,  as do most who have read my stories from long ago.  You know I got hurt bad but I survived.  I have loved and lost only to love again.  It really is just basic life isn’t it. Ups and downs,  give and take.

 

  Well the electric bill is so high and 100 gal. of propane cost over $440 and lasts but 3 weeks if we are lucky.  We live on a fixed income, as we are both retired and the checks we get each month are divided up for all of our bills.  Sometimes we can do something fun and other times we find fun close to home. We are better off than many but still poor when it comes to income brought in, so when they refused to bring me more propane on Friday or even to let me order another 100 gal.because we had a $160.00 balance and no income till 8 days later I had to ask the town for help and then I had to do what I tried not to do. I had to ask for fuel assistance.

Now if you know me you know that  it angers me to have to request help.  I am hit by someone doing something wrong and left unable to make the income I used to depend on and they go about their business,  still driving a bus and making good money.  I guess I go from angry to sad but on this day something changed.  I mentioned to the woman taking our application for help that maybe when I hit 60 I could get the Social Security I worked so hard for, as I was the surviving spouse. She looked at me and asked if they said those exact words to me and I answered yes.  She asked me to go home and call the government office as she believed it meant my ex-husband  had died and I was entitled to it now.  Well I did and they confirmed he had indeed passed away and I would now get his check if it was more than mine.  So I made an appointment  for after my birthday and in between surgeries to bring in my marriage certificate into them so they had proof we were married the required amount of years.  Now remember I drove a rig over three million miles and worked hard and missed out  on so many things others enjoyed,  because I LOVED trucking.  So once I go in with this certificate,  I will find out if I can come off State aid and really that is all I am praying for.  I want to be independent again.

While going through paperwork looking for a piece of paper I thought I had thrown away in 1995 I came across so many documents I would no longer need. So out came the paper shredder and I began to rid myself of all that really no longer mattered.  With each piece that got fed through the blades, the weight of it all was not only freeing but sad.  I guess after having a restraining order for over 15 years on him and holding on to all of our records just in case I would need them was 14 years too long.  I made a dent in the massive boxes of trucking paperwork we had amassed in our 15 years of marriage.  The first load was placed into the compost bin where it will sit and be covered by kitchen scraps and breakdown into something good.  It will become beautiful rich soil, for new life to grow  in.  I could not think of a better way to deal with all of this.

So with all of this on my plate I will wander in and out of my blog adding a new one here or there as time allows for and a few interesting blogs from those I follow.  I will do more of this purging and cleaning and letting go and spend my days feeling free from worry.  I will smile more I am sure.  I am sad he destroyed so much and in the end himself but I will pray for him to finally be able to rest in peace, as it is what I wish for each and every troubled soul.

I will continue to read your blogs in my readers,  WP and Feedly and try to keep up,  as I love you all and what you do is important.  You keep it real, you show us pretty places and you write so eloquently. I love the poetry and the stories you tell and I will forever be thankful for the kindness you have shown me.  I am not going anywhere just trying to get my act and home in order so I can have the procedures done and put my feet up in the sun with all of you and enjoy what life has in store.

Talk again soon

Yes More Snow They Say

Sorry I am so seldom on here and so few of you actually show up in the  WP READER that I follow,  for when I have time to check in now and then.  You see we are having, as far as I am concerned, a winter from hell.  Now the skiers, snowmobilers and snowboarders LOVE IT!  It is all in how you look at things and when all I see is WHITE I am far from impressed! 

So I took a Watercolor class it was only three hours long but between the colorful woman from Russia who taught it and the pallet of gorgeous colors I brought to choose from, those three hours were just what the doctor ordered.

After trying to beat the ice covered yard I GAVE UP!  I never give up but I was truly defeated by all this #*%&!  Thirty four days till SPRING and that will not mean this snow will end, you see here in New England it is not over some years until we are into MAY!  They say global warming I say BULL!   It has been brutal here with not only the snow but bitter cold and we are getting another eight inches or more tonight they say blizzard conditions and I am tired of blogging like I am a weather forecaster.  You know I even left 10 inches of snow on the roof, we just could not move anymore and were not safe up there in 40 mile per hour winds so enough is enough.   I would wave a white flag but surly only the bear and coyote would see me and I would scare my little birds away as if the Eagle, Coopers Hawk and Sharp Shinned ones don’t do that already. :)

So last night I sat with my paints and began to pick up pretty colors and in a Monet fashion I added pretty colors to the white paper in what they say is a wash.  They are now dry and I love the look of these small pieces of paper, now I will try to add some interest in the foreground not even sure I am supposed to do it this way as it was only a three hour class.  Seems like this is how I roll.  I learn the basic points and go off on my own I guess I never really saw myself that much of a rebel but indeed I guess I am.

What do you all do when weekends roll around or on an evening when you scream out UNCLE?  See I don’t drink or smoke or go out dancing any more so I make things,  so I stay out of trouble.

I take photos too when it is not dark out and here are a few of my world these days but you are probably tired of hearing about lousy weather too.

Image
 
Since all I plan on adding to the inside of these garden walls this year are Sunflowers we dump the snow inside, now it maybe May till I can poke my finger in the soil a half inch to drop the seed.  Spring is coming isn’t it?  I should pray it come slowly or the house will be surly under water if we get nasty flooding you see there is no rhyme or reason some of you have nothing and us TOO MUCH.
Image

JT popped her new  orange ball, so I took this one out and then I bought her another larger one, Pink Minnie Mouse but when storm is coming I throw it in the back seat of the truck so we can find it come morning.

Image

 This is up against the Lilacs I chopped in half,  between my brutal pruning and all this, that will melt, I am sure they will be MONSTERS again.
Image
Before the last storm.

Image
We will sit and wait for the next 8 inches to arrive this afternoon and he just told me he will go up on the roof now to get some weight off of it before the next storm arrives one good thing if we fall the snow banks around the house are so high we won’t fall far.

Always the silver lining!

Have an awesome weekend.

Beading A Bracelet For A Dear Friend

Well it is a Big Football day here in America.  My team is not in it so I will listen to the music watch the half time show and raise my eyes to catch the commercials they paid so much for.  Eat and drink,  no not so much,  not like the old days when it was a party to throw that kept me busy.  Today I am beading.  Feet up working with Size 8 beads in the colors Purple as it is my friends favorite color hope she likes how it will look on her wrist.  I am worried about her.  She is going to be 68 on the day my son was born and she has been having lots lot heart issues.  So I hope my small token of friendship brings a smile to her face.  She is ten years older than me and I have known her since the 90′s when a man from my neighborhood started dating her out in OH.  So she moved here and we had some fun times together.  She now lives in GA and since I do not see me getting there anytime soon this gift will be a surprise of sorts. See when we lived close to each other we would do things together on our birthdays, without men just us girls.  Mine is two weeks after hers so it was a never ending party.  We would go out for Prime Rib dinner and dance the night away. So thinking of her and my love of Kumihimo I am almost done.  Want to see?

Image

Size 8′s

Three different colors I mixed together randomly into a “Soup Mix”

Image

A piece of the finished braid.
Image
Do you think these colors look good together?

Image

I really hope she feels the love as she wears it.  I don’t have a lot of money but beads I have and a skillset to make something handmade and they say those are truly the most thoughtful gifts right?

Have a wonderful day!

Then again I want tomorrow to come too as our very handsome New England Patriots Quarterback will be in Denver to play against Manning.  Sure hope they don’t stop to get high well any higher than the Mile High, at the stadium.  GO PATS!!!!!

 

 

New England

What do girls born and raised in New England do on a warm winter’s day?  Well if they own a home and dream of spring days in mid January they go outside!  It was in the forty’s yesterday and the sunshine felt good.  I dressed warm enough for a little exercise never knowing how much I would actually do as I began.

Now if you are a follower of Living and Lovin you know I love my wild birds.  Last year over 300 pounds of just the black oil  sunflower seeds were devoured.  That is enough for me to use them as dependents on my IRS Tax Form!  We the winter is in full swing and they are once again depending on me to help them through.  So on this gorgeous day it was time to clean up some of the mess they made as the snow was gone in most parts from where I hang their feeders and spread seed on the ground for all who do not fly up to the many feeders here.  What a mess there was of empty shells.  So here it was mid January and I had a rake one used for raking leaves in the fall and a snow shovel and a ice chopper.  Yes we need many tools when you own a home in New England.  I raked the piles up and then picked them up to shovel over the edge where the ducks and ground birds could pick out the corn and unopened shells.
Image

This is one of the piles I was able to shovel and scatter below in the Lilacs and other small bushes.

Image

Seasons here often get mixed up.  As you can see by two of the tools I used a lot.

Then it was time to chop ice and do I mean CHOP I hurt so bad after three hours but you see it was going to go back to winter so I had to do all I could.

The yard is so flooded by the beavers downstream my yard ruined once again by the release of a lake in a river that no longer flows downstream.  So I had ducks here, three pairs of Mallards.

Image

Snow and sun and no cropping of this shot but you see what I mean.  I came in and wrote the State of New Hampshire a note saying to clean the river out of my yard and added lots of pretty photos hope it works.

I grabbed a few wheat thins and a glass of water and some yummy humus for a snack then packed up the cameras and JT and went to the shore.  I figured a nice ride after all the work I did and a walk with my best girl at the beach would make me feel better well I hurt real bad on way home but had a beautiful early evening there as her and I walked.  I stopped going to Weight Watchers so it is important to stick with the plan and exercise to keep all I have lost OFF even if it KILLS ME :)  She found a nasty looking tennis ball for me to throw and I thankfully placed her stick I had been kicking into my back pocket.  She always finds treasures just like us.  We are a perfect family.
Image

How is that for a pretty way to end a backbreaking day.  There are huge seals out on those rocks enjoying the day just like us.

There were even surfers who wanted to get out and enjoy a warm January day
Image

It was nice but not that nice! :)

Now today it is snowing to beat the band as they say in these parts and no matter if I am ready to shovel or not I must.  I will try to remember the beautiful night along the shore and when the storm is but a memory head right back over there.

Have a great Weekend
