My Back Deck

So onto lighter things...
Want to see where I spend alot of time on spring, summer & fall days? 
Well one of the places anyways!

This is our back deck.
It's where Mister Roo-Boo tends to hang out during the days,
where Ella Luna and I spent oodles and oodles of time together,
and where the squirrels and chickadees come to converse with me.
It's also where I have my morning coffee,
my mid-afternoon reading breaks
and where my easel is set up for painting or pastels.


It's also where I stretch out and gaze up at the stars in the evening times.
Ahhhh.
I LOVE it.

I've shown you this space before,
but it does change from season to season,
I am sure it'll be completely rearranged next year again.
And, I still have to paint that one rocking chair a bright red...maybe this coming weekend.

Thanks for hopping in.

Disappearing Act...Again!

Hi Everyone,
Wow!
I've managed to disappear unexpectedly from my blog again.  Sorry about that.
A two week long head pain marathon ran into my honey getting really sick and ending up in hospital
because he could barely breathe for his lungs & airways had gotten so congested...it was scary!
And that ordeal streamed right along into more head pain filled days for me
and then naturally my turn to get abit of a flu...

But all is getting better now, so I'll be showing you some new artwork very soon.
I'd like to say later today or tomorrow but for once I won't promise since my headaches and
migraines are in high gear these last few weeks and I've been able to get less done than
normal or even keep to a plan or schedule of any sort.


BUT...
my Jonathan is okay now and safe and sound at home...
The first words out of his mouth when I was finally able to see him a few hours later in the triage room was "Oh there you are, I missed you and I miss my rabbits, I want to go home I need to see them" awww.
So even though I am writing this with a still pounding head
and I am pretty sure it'll likely be sore again tomorrow!
(I head to a neurologist very soon...slightly nervous!)
my honey is back home and on his way to healthy again, so all is right in my world
...and I have no complaints.

And I am just really excited about showing you all some new work,
I've been working on so many things.
So do hop in for a visit again really soon so you can see all the new goodies, okay?

A Visit

I got to spend a short time with my best friend Judit recently,
which we so so needed and which has filled up my heart happily until our next visit.
We live a far 400km away and it's just not always easy for us to get together unfortunately.
But this beautiful girl is a part of my heart and I love love love her so.


We don't need a million friends, or a hundred or even ten...
we just need one really true and blue soul who gets us and loves us through thick and thin.
I was lucky to travel the 400km with my oldest and and most spectacular best friend, Jonathan.
whiles leaving our beloved buns and home in the hands of another beautiful and awesome friend, Maria.
to travel to and spend time with my dearest kindred Chicken, Judit.
I am so very grateful for these friendships, they are my rocks.

Now it's off to yoga and then the dentist (ugh!)...have a beautiful day everyone.

She Lived Inside Hope

I have a new mixed media to show you all today, it's titled...

"She Lived Inside Hope"


Because at the end of the day, the one thing we always have, is our hope.
I know I live inside it.
I hope you do as well.

Have a wonderful weekend and we'll see you next week
(I am hoping it will be a headache/migraine free one, unlike this past week!)

But, I am back to introduce a brand new dapper fellow.

He has a little circle of acquaintances who are very anxious to say hello to you all very soon.
