The Comfy Chair -- I wish

A man's favourite chair

I won't lie to you the last couple of days have been doozies.
Alright already as they say.  But our family member is on
the mend, I've finished my marking for tomorrow, and
very soon it will be full on spring, and everything we've
lived through will be behind us.  We'll be sitting on the
back porch having a glass of wine, looking at the garden,
and all around us people will be frantically barbecuing.

Meanwhile here's a drawing of a comfy chair at my
brother's place in Quebec.  I wish I could teletransport
there tomorrow and see him.  I did this from life in his
living room, and it has all the stumbling naivete of an
iPad drawing.  And I wish everyone out there a comfy chair
in the best meaning, and a decent book.

Have a taking it easy on yourself day.

I love everything about this, Barbara. The writing as much as the art. Not clumsy, in fact looks pretty sophisticated to me. I hope by now you are enjoying that glass of wine on the deck.

Hi Verna,

I haven't had a glass of wine on my back porch yet, but did have one last weekend in
the Skylon revolving restaurant in Niagara Falls over dinner with friends exhibiting in
the Water for Life exhibition. And that was lovely!
