Some topics covered this week:

  • Spotted in a restaurant during the lunch rush: Paperblanks Silver Filigree Natural Ultra. Beautiful journal on the table beside me. A young lady was very enthusiastically tapping the journal while conversing with her lunch partner.
  • A friend of mine got in touch this week; she was in town for a course. We had a phenomenal dinner on Friday night and spent Saturday night with my Dad and then out to watch my husband’s band perform. It was a real treat to spend time with her. Love you Lori!
  • The ink in my Jinhao X450 ran out so I put in some Parker Quink Erasable Blue. What a transformation! I like the pen so much better with different ink. I wonder if the J. Herbin ink I put in this pen originally was not good. Oh well I’m very happy with this pen/ink combination.

Until next time, happy writing!
