I am turning 3x today, you can guess, the last one before forty. I took a day off and stayed at home... nope.. I did not skip work, I needed to be home to care for Iris after she had her stomach viral infection and just been back home yesterday from the two nights at the hospital. So what could be better than seeing your child recovering and getting to paint on my Birthday. Tone, went out in the evening and got me a bunch of roses, homemade card, a box of cake, and my favorite magazine. Good thing I am not too crazy for expensive stuffs, so he can give me these little treats quite often.
I am very happy.
Well I thought I would feel bad toward my midlife turning into my last of number 3x for my age but it turns out OK. I guess going through Iris's sickness a few days ago, giving me a new perspective for what I cherish and am happy about most in my life. In addition, my neighbor's dog, who is my favorite dog also stopped by to greet me in my garage this morning. The dog read my mind and I am so happy. That is also the best birthday gift I got from God, a greeting from my favorite dog.
So here is what I paint today, "Iris", a 5x7 inch watercolor from a ref. image of Flickr by Gailf548.
