Today is the last day of this week’s challenge, and so far my plans for pictures for this theme have all been thwarted.  Although I have coffee paintings, and early morning scenes from the boat, I wanted something new to post.  But, alas, the morning following our night on the boat was dreary despite the glorious sunset the night before.  I thought I might put my morning coffee next to a rain-drenched window today, but the wind died and the glass stayed dry.  So here is my “good morning” picture, drawn with a graphite stick:

I’m thankful for a warm, dry place to sleep, and the strength and health to get out of bed each morning!
