 After the nap

Sometimes things are so great that you get exhausted.  It’s been a very good 
day in many respects.  One of my favourite moments was sitting out on the
bench beside our pretty garage toasting Steven with champagne for a new
job that starts next week. (In fact I think that's what made me tired -- the tiny
bit of champagne.) 

The sky above us was an amazing blue, and the clouds were floating by a 
gorgeous fluffy white.  Little birds were flying down onto the feeder hanging 
beside us.

Plus I worked on a painting I’ve been having trouble with for months, and felt 
like I was making progress.  We went for two long walks, and had distanced 
conversations with neighbours all along our street.

It is bed time.  I hope you had a lovely day, and are ready to rest too.  My bed
doesn’t look quite this rumpled.  But it did the day I drew this sketch.
