We mourn as does our whole nation, the recent senseless loss of life at the school in Florida. When bad things happen it makes all of us sad. Sometimes focusing on good things helps. A good thing happened to us yesterday. Our credit union called to let us know they'd forgotten to give us our change of fifty-three cents when we paid a bill; they said they deposited the fifty-three cents into our account.
Oops I spoke too soon, my hot water heater broke last night. We drained the remaining water out last evening. I knew it was old and needed to be replaced, We planned to replace it when the weather warmed up. The hot water heater has forced me to move up the scheduling. Of course the price of them has gone up quite a bit.
I've cut my left thumb right under the nail so I haven't been able to work in clay but I've been painting. Above is the rudimentary beginnings of a black bear in a meadow painting. I never realized how often I use my thumb till now. A hot water heater and a thumb are small things in the scheme of things. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
