A day derailed

It never ceases to amaze me regarding the range of emotions a human being can experience within a period of mere seconds.

Sunday arrived and I had planned to paint for the afternoon after getting home from church. The day was cold and drizzly and as I was driving home, the drizzle had turned to rain which was just fine with me because we need the rain and I wouldn’t have any distractions to work on my current project.

As I began to put the key in the door, I felt happy, content and at peace. Once I walked in, I was greeted by our two Boxers, Cooper and Luna, and looking at them sent me into a state of confusion, then shock and finally, panic! I was horrified to realize that the object in Luna’s mouth was a gnarled, once full, tube of oil paint – burnt sienna, to be exact. Normally, my dogs are fawn color with white markings on the face, chest and paws but at that moment, I couldn’t see any white. I followed the path of destruction throughout the house which finally led me to the dining room/living room area that now had very, VERY large areas of smeared burnt sienna OIL PAINT! IMG_1882

Needless to say, my day had been derailed. Four hours later with plenty of elbow grease and a gallon of Mona Lisa odorless paint thinner and the carpets are looking pretty darn good!
