Never Enough Hours in a Day

Sometimes I think I have have to many projects going at the same time, but I love it! I have so many ideas on what project to do next that I think I better start writing this stuff down. So this is why I feel there are never enough hours in a day to do everything I want to do.

I did take some relaxation time this evening, sitting out on our deck. It seems every time I sit out there I find some wildlife to capture a shot of. I was watching this little baby bunny hop around my neighbors backyard. He had to be no more then 6" long. Pretty soon it was in our yard. It ran up close to the side of our house where the grass doesn't grow and rolled around in the dirt taking a dirt bath. It was so cute!
Awww wildlife
Last evening a deer strolled into the very same neighbors back yard where he has all his bird feeders and chewed up his thistle feeder sock right before my eyes. In one minute it was all gone! I did take a picture but they didn't turn out very well.  

I'm so glad to have all my flowers planted and also glad that we finally got a good amount of rain on Monday evening. It helps to not have to water everyday! Here's a shot of my Gerbera Daisies after our rain storm.

I just love these flowers and they always do so well for me!

And here is another daisy type flower called a Gazania

They come in all different colors!

On Sunday Hubby and I went on a motorcycle ride along the Mississippi River and found several families of geese!

It was so hot that day, 93ยบ! All the geese were sitting in the shade.

And I captured this sweet shot of one of the goslings!! Isn't he so cute!

And today I found juvenile mourning dove sitting on the railing of our deck. He was eyeing the bird feeder above.

Haven't been doing to much sewing lately because I've been working on a new project for my new photography etsy shop, Red Oak Images

Glass Tile Photo Pendants made with my photos!!!

This is what I've made so far and have more in the works to be listed in a week or so.

I'll be having some primitive pendants too!!!

I must get to bed now...I've been sleeping a little better lately. Still wake up with those darn hot flashes!!! grrrrr


  1. I'm with ya on not enough hours in a day!
    Beautiful pics ~ gazina's are one of my favorites! Such a wonderful idea to make pendants out of your photo's ~ can't wait to see the primitive ones.
    Prim Blessings

  2. I love your photos. Yep who knew life would do this to us. :) Same thing going on with me too. I love the bunny taking a dust bath, I didn't know they did that.

  3. I love sitting out on the porch at dusk and watching the bunnies and other critters who come to visit. Nice time to relax and reflect.


  4. Such beautiful pictures! We too had some little baby bunnies in our yard. They are just adorable. Your grandchildren are so cute. I hope you get to see them soon. That must break your heart to be so far away from them.
    Blessings to you,

  5. Your photographs are stunning!!! I think daisies are so beautiful no matter what kind. How neat to watch a cute bunny do his thing. I would have loved to see that. I am glad you took some time to relax. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. -Steph-
