Illustration Friday - Afterwards

Ally loved her weekends.  She treasured them.  On the weekend, Ms. Gator would leisurely amble through her morning routine, she'd make a pot of tea, and afterwards, she'd sit down in her oversized chair, prop up her feet and savor her Gator Times daily.  No rush, rush, rush that was so typical during the week.  No.  She didn't need to be anywhere or do anything on the weekend.  Ahhh, weekends were such a delight.  Unfortunately, Ally had no idea that all that would change when her new neighbor moved in...
