What a difference a day makes

Wednesday was wonderful (see my last entry).
Thursday was full of work - updating my blog, website and looking through the previous day's pictures for new painting material, of which there is a lot!
Then meeting with Patti from the Frame Factory in Vienna to exchange/update the paintings she is going to move to her Alexandria location.
From there, a quick trip home to empty out my van and say hello to my sweet Felix, and off to help my friend move house.
By the time I got home at 5, it had been a full day.
Then my cat called out. He had been hit by a car but had made his way onto our lawn and waited for me to come home. He couldn't move his hind legs and was panicked and tried to drag himself away from me when I approached. But I was able to come up to him quietly and pick him up and take him to the vet who put him to sleep.
My sweet cat was 18 years old and has had a full and happy life. He was a member of a three cat family, and outlasted all the others.
Felix was one of those living creatures that is photogenic, and was the model for many of my paintings.
I miss him.
