Been in the 30s for a couple of days. Miss Karma has been spending more time at the porch door--hehe!
She's still not totally convinced it might not be freezing out there (wise cat) so she sits silently and doesn't cry to go out. (There is a "you cry, you go out whether you like it or not" rule here.) So she sometimes nearly dozes off waiting next to the door--hehe!
I noticed that there is now a big white roofing machine parked where the yellow one was. They must have taken the yellow one off to be repaired. (Remember the roofer who was stuck for hours on the frozen roof?) With our spring-like weather, maybe they're actually thinking about coming back and finishing the job?
My big thrill! (People bored with pen and ink talk can skip this green part--hehe!) I signed up for "Ink Drop" with The Goulet Pen Company.
I could hardly wait to get my ink samples for March!
They arrived yesterday.
Yes, one label was put on upsidedown--hehe!
It's an ink club. Each month I'll get five ink samples to play with.
These are the ones for March.
I already own Baystate Blue, which I love. I'd been looking at the Kung Te-Cheng and now I know it is a nice almost navy blue.
So glad I came across them thru the videos of the owner of Noodler's Ink--a unique and opinionated man.
(I love Noodler's inks!!)
I am in seventh heaven! Goulet's do also sell samples of the various inks they carry if you're not in the club or you just want to see what some specific ink is like up close and personal--so I don't plan to ever in this lifetime buy a bottle of ink and find out I am disappointed again--tada! They even have a blog and an interactive hour online every Tuesday night so you can ask questions and find out what's new (or watch later if you were busy, as I often am). A young couple own the shop and he makes various videos for youtube, also, to demo the pens and inks they carry.
They recently expanded to carry Lamy (love those) and have another brand lined up that hasn't been revealed yet.
Anyways, did I mention seventh heaven? Ink Nirvana? :):)
Made it over to the new dentist's office yesterday. Had a chipped tooth that needed fixing. So nice to have a real waiting room with carpeting, a TV, a bathroom, comfortable chairs--and not to have a "no weapons allowed" sign over the receptionist's desk--whoohoo! Everyone was really nice. The dentist was fast and yet didn't make you feel he was rushing at all. Did a nice job, too--can't feel any roughness. And I get to see him--the very same dentist--again the next time! I am soooo happy!!
Tonight is Sacred Circle. Dagan and Leah plan to be over after work. Always look forward to seeing them! It has hit 42 degrees!!! I just checked! Wow!!!
Hope everyone is doing well.
Please say a prayer for all those people in Japan.
