More coffee -- Yes!

Frequently on Valentine's Day we go to Ottawa and stay at a favourite
hotel. Since the pandemic began, room service has ended. For
awhile the hotel we like to visit offered room service to the door,
where a masked person would hand you a tray. But what we remember
and think of as ultimately romantic, is breakfast in the room brought
in on a rolling table with a tablecloth. The server would pour our
coffee, and the day would feel wondrous, special and romantic.
With the trucker convoy in Ottawa, that former treat is off the
table, plus our three animals need someone to stay in our house, and
that's not possible with the new COVID variant. Yes it's still out
there. Please wear a mask and get your vaccines. Let's end this
The drawing tonight is a sketch I found that made me nostalgic for
the whole experience. I worked on it and upped the contrast, but
I can almost taste the coffee, and the toast that isn't in this picture,
with the delicious jam from a tiny jar.
Happy Valentine's Day weekend.
