May 18th 2016
I had the blahs today. I had to take my dog Trixi to the vet. In my mind, I was expecting the worst. The vet thought she pulled a muscle and has a hematoma causing pain and maybe a little infection in the area. We got meds for that. She has another follow up tomorrow to make sure it is nothing more. If she is improved, I will cancel. That was good news. Wait and see.
It is May 18th and the weather is weird. I had to turn on my heater today! I live in the desert. I opened my pool 3 weeks ago! I don’t ever remember using the heater in May. Cold, windy and rainy. The rain was certainly welcome but I kept thinking that it felt like fall, except for the spring blooms and new greens. I was thinking about the mean trees we see in Halloween art and the pretty blues in spring skies when I decided to paint this after watching a tutorial on YouTube. October in May.
