Today I gave the breakfast tray arrangement in our hotel room another
try. There were peaches in the tiny dish of chopped up fruit. I love the
look of the coffee carafe. It reminds me of the birds we love — geese,
ducks and seagulls. But those birds can’t make coffee — well at least
not the ones we see regularly at the park we love in Toronto.
We took a drive out along the Ottawa river, today, and enjoyed a long walk on a
beautiful trail beside the river. Just magnificent. I might touch this
drawing up when I get home to Toronto. Today I thought I’d try and intensify
of the coffee carafe’s beak. I used my eye makeup brush, and some water
In a cup. It didn’t blur the ink the way I hoped it would, and I did not have
other supplied with me.
Not perfect, but it is something for my memory of this special, and very
strange vacation in COVID 19. People have been so kind — all behind
I hope you had a lovely day. We did.
