Arrow comes to her name, sits. gives paw..and knows "NO!" There are times when I call her- she looks at me and runs the other way- what will happen? On the leash she goes. Norm attached a lead that goes right to the door - hooked on and put out - where she seems to enjoy this lovely cooler fall weather. Fall! It's so beautiful - yellow and red leaves.
There's an old guy up here building birdhouses and raising money for charity -I like how he thinks so I approached him with a collaboration ;) Since I'm painting anyhow... Bird houses, I've painted them and am giving 3 back (keeping one- cause I love birds!) Hopefully he can raise a bit extra with these custom houses. I painted 4 all the same - Poppies - for Remembrance day- which won't be celebrated as it usually is. I think I'll paint four more- Algonquin themed. So - IF you are local & want ONE of these custom painted - Limited edition of 4 (one is gone) Poppy houses - go see the Bird house Guy!
In Minden (near the legion) tell Him Georgia sent you. I hope they sell fast & I'll paint more
if he needs more.
Norm said his shop is the same size as my studio - tiny and he's an old guy -so this is his hobby - what a great idea.. so many can be doing more... not just for the pandemic but to 'help in general. This helps several ways- raising money & having colorful bird houses - for the birds! It's a win win!
BTW- I can't get over how well these houses are made - he even has air vents just under the roof. Intentional! They are not able to open for cleaning as Norm pointed out- so what- I reminded him, we never cleaned out any of our past houses and always had many birds- who has time to clean bird houses- in a perfect world perhaps.
Yes, this pup is WORK right now and I have thought during a moment of exhaustion - did you need this? lol Yes. I know that our new family member will be a lovely trained girl soon enough, she already makes us laugh and is fitting in well- Poppy loves her- I've never seen Poppy give another dog - kisses' - it's so cute. Time to paint a happy fall image.
Have a lovely fall Y'all.
