Coffee and lots of it on the 19th day of The Month of Love

This morning I had room service coffee -- which if you know
me is certainly one of my favourite ways to have the
beverage that powers my life.  Sorry but it's true.  I
run on coffee -- not that much -- but I like it strong,
and need two or three cups each morning to get going.

The coffee this morning was delicious and strong and
served in a lovely silver carafe which reflected the
gorgeous blue sky out the window, and even had
clouds floating in the sky on its shining surface.
That kind of coffee can make the whole day happier,
and it did.  This has been a super day.

I also spent some time with friends today,
and they make perhaps an even better, and stronger
coffee than the perfect morning brew of this the
19th day of the Month of Love.  And I should
not have had another cup.  I really tried to just
drink half of it, but I certainly wanted it.  So
if I am up all night drawing you will know why.

Ah, yes - coffee! My cappuccino is burbling on the stove as we speak. I'll drink to your 19th day celebration! And I love the sketches. xo ML

Thank you so much Mary Lou, you make me miss Italy when you say that. I will drink to your
21 day of celebration tomorrow. For now this day is done. I imagine it will take quite a bit of
coffee to get the next one started.
