I wonder what tomorrow will bring...

This cactus is thriving in its little place in paradise. I took photos of it a little more than a week ago. Those blooms are gone now and have been replaced with these. There are a ton of new buds on the cactus. I can hardly wait to see what tomorrow brings!

The steps taken to the finish line.  (You can see the first stages of the drawing in the previous post.)

A blank canvas - that will never do - I've got to start somewhere - make some marks, add some background paint and begin...

Where this is going is anyone's guess.

Firstly, thank you to all our service personnel who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our blessed United States of America safe.

Richard and I are enjoying a perfectly beautiful spring day in Chicago at Navy Pier.
