I am writing this on the tablet. Funny I never seem to get the photos sized right or something, ah well. We have been working on the yard.me as much as I can. I planted 18 Loblolly pines across the front of the empty cut land . Wat and Chris worked 2 days to get logs out of the side yard and clean up the yard and it looks so much better we helped too,so I have been sore,ha ha. I haven't painted much this week. I did sketch a pig today. I will start her tomorrow,this is Roxanne she was behind Corner Bakery the day I painted in the window at Red Queen Gallery. There was a special parade of animals in town. Goats, black lab,and Roxanne was in the parking lot. You know how I love animals. I was in heaven, so here is her photo with me. Hope you had a nice weekend. I heard a Great Horned Owl this morning. Love to you,Diana

but I need to focus on the blessings, the men who worked here were so sweet and worked hard to save trees, each one was dear. I feel like they are my friends. And my other friends gave me tons of plants for my garden, look how pretty it is. Hummingbirds everywhere,a whippourwil in the woods tonight. So I have a lot to be thankful for.

You have heard me say we live in a forest,well, we are cutting the timber. This is a good thing but you by now know how much the woods and wildlife mean to me. I know it will grow back but it seems to hurt my heart when I hear the wind in the trees or just see how magnificent they are. Silly but me...
Sadie, my lab, Jelly, our black kitten,and Cupcake, our cat,and all are well. Oops suppertime. Gotta cook, love to each of you, Diana
