Rattlesnake & Coyote & Poppy Bye Bye!
On 3 separate occasions people have come up and warned me about Poppy.
I get it and THANK you.
I was picking a flower today and Poppy was with me, on her leash but still... I was'nt paying attention to her- this Cali foliage has got me 'cra cra ' lol .. I heard "Mam.... Mam... (in a southern drawl) You need to pay attention to your dog! My dog and I were attacked by 3 coyote the other day!" She then proceeded to pull out this really cute portable Tazer!! Pink - at that "I got it on Amazon, you should pick it up, keep it in your hand or purse.. those coyote would steal her up in a second!" I thanked her- told her I was visiting from Canada - and then she blurted out - "Well then, You better pay attention to the rattlesnake too!"
OH My gouache! lol Where are the squirrels when you need them?
Come to think of it, I have not seen a squirrel.
Tons of tiny lizards- I wish I could catch one for a better look! Bunnies, BEEs, birds..
Behind the house is a walking path - amazing views & plants and it leads to a park or you can take it to 'Salt Creek Beach 2.5 miles' I plan on getting up early tomorrow and walking it! Me & Poppy. Now we have our whistle (also advised by the lovely stranger), and a walking stick with a strap! To whack at coyote, there are many people on the path as well. We won't see a Coyote (God's got my back- Poppy's too) but we're just gonna play it safe... a backpack so my hands are free. We're good to go! & I've painted new TINY ART drop! I'm so happy a little girl found one- she inspired me to paint "more fun" than a pelican.
& WE GO everywhere together! We went to the Movies & watched a movie with Salma Hayek & John Lithgow (I think they are both terrific).. the movie made me cry a couple of times & it touched a nerve with me. ;( I knew what was coming at the end & just wanted to get out of the theatre. I highly recommend it.
I am a big believer in fate as was Salmas character. & love.. & healing.
I don't understand much it appears sometimes and get incredibly frustrated at events or people that enter my life - for a reason presumably - I know God has a plan.. What it is - I give up. I surrender. I can't even pretend to guess.
Later while I lay in bed... I wished I hadn't seen the movie.
Poppy had a tear in her eye at the end of the movie- I think it's because she was enjoying the air conditioned room so much and knew we were leaving. lol
** I had a comment here but removed it as it might 'spoil' the movie**
BEFORE I agreed to this invite I asked my friend "Do you support Trump?"
Had he said 'yes, I'd of said 'no. Fact.
I don't speak Trumps name around here.. I am clearly amongst supporters.
Today were just going to sit out back, listen to the birds and paint & ponder.
This 'fate stuff' got me all confused today... time to sample some new cannabis I picked up and just enjoy the sunshine and let God do the rest.
I have faith God won't let me down.
