Happy Fourth of July

So much life happening at the moment it is hard to fit it all in.

I lost my cat on Monday and after 17 years together it is hard though I know she was so very sick 😦 I still wish she filled our space with her beauty xo

JT misses her as do we.

Phase one of my Artist retreat was slow with knee but it is in and mulched to protect is from this heatwave that is consuming so much of the United States I am not complaining mind you, as you all know I despise winter 🙂  I love a week and a half of high 90’s which is better than the same below 0 degrees F.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you know I am also painting but with pain till my brace arrives I will vary my sitting and walking but soon hope to ride a bike no not another Harley but a pedal bike with a baskets so I can go off and sketch and paint in different places as well as my yard.  I think in Aug. I signed up for a week long Plein Air
right here close by with an amazing teacher. I hope I get the hang of it 🙂

I stepped out of my comfort zone a couple of weeks ago and painted live as a Featured Artist during a Farmers Market.  Met some very nice people and sold some cards.

The Cutest Thing Caught My Eye

After working so hard on Willow I needed Yoga yesterday badly and decided to take the back roads home which only add one more mile to the trip.  You have seen my back road photos of this area if you follow my blog.  I remember when they brought the first 2 in and how beautiful they were.  I seem to adore cows.  Yesterday I saw the cutest thing, I had to stop and take a few photos to share with you.

 

 

 

 

One last shot of what had me smiling and made me pull over and shoot through the passenger side window

 

I needed a happy moment and as I turned the bend there it was.

Wind

We had taken a trip to the shore to detect the beach, the waves were rough and the winds brisk.

We found a ring and change but once again, I captured on my Easy Share, a few interesting

photos on the way home.

 

 

These were  Sail Boats that had been knocked over by the winds.

 

 

As we came along this curvy section of shore road I see this young man suiting up to catch the AIR.  I pulled over and caught some action shots like I said I am ALWAYS READY!

I really wanted to just watch as I had never seen this done, close up in a marsh no less.

 

 

His Kite goes up in the wind with no problem.

 

 

Looks like he is also enjoying the day much differently from how we had but isn’t that what life is about, doing things you enjoy.

 

See what I mean about a brisk wind, man and I thought racing cars years ago was a RUSH

He and his buddy just jumped out of their cars, suited up, dragged their gear to the edge of the marsh and took off !  They must do this in a lot of places maybe safer than here .lol

We are along a very busy coastal route in NH.

 

CRAZY

 

Then the ride ends and thankfully on a cold and raw windy day.

 

In the middle of the ROADWAY!

 

I had my photos of this day safely on my SD Card and they were safe and would now pack up to maybe go for a beer and talk about the AIR they had Grabbed!

 

You just never know what you will find, during the course of a regular, plain old day .

 

Hope you enjoyed our day too
