Yesterday evening in the back of the property I saw a young deer, and then another rustling around in the pines behind the first. I ran to get my camera. I walked out the door and saw a larger doe in the neighbors yard watching the first two. I put my camera up to snap a shot and they must have seen me move because they all shot off like lighting. While I missed the shot, this is still exciting, since neither I nor my neighbors had seen deer for the last few years. The rabbits are back this year as well… they had all but disappeared for the last few years as also. It is fun to see all this wildlife so close by.
My dog is doing better today. I have to give her pills twice a day for the next week, but hopefully she will be back to her happy self soon.
I have to tell all of you, however, that with the air conditioner on 82 degrees it feels a little chilly when I sit under my ceiling fan. I know that sounds weird, but I really had gotten used to the 90+ degrees in my house. Last night I upped the temp to 85 degrees. This use of the a/c is really going to mess up my Riot for Austerity numbers.
I received a package of unsold art from a small lunch spot in Philadelphia where they had been hanging for the last few months. It was fun to see some of them again. Here are two (click on for larger pic):
These and others can be found on my website: Art By Strongheart (link on right) in the Cultural Artifact Art Gallery.
