    Smile Three good things from your day

    Share three good, positive things from your day! Your list does not have to be poignant or monumental--it can be insignificant, random, humorous, whatever (as long as it makes you smile!).


    1. Listening to the rain drum against the windows.
    2. Three new pens from the Atlanta pen show (and several old ones now with beautifully customized nibs).
    3. Reading a well-written murder mystery.

    1. Reading an enjoyable book
    2. Early morning conversation with my mom
    3. Watching my team (Manchester United) play while curled up in bed with a loved one (who turned on the tv and switched the channel so I could wake up to see it on).

    1. Going home from work
    2. Driven from the station by Mrs Bogon - beats walking
    3. Giving the Lovebirds new water, grass and seed without being bombed by them.

    Hmm, let's see:
    1. NOT coming off when my horse, who was really feeling his oats, bucked during our ride today and was generally rotten.
    2. That after the ride he rubbed his head all over me apologetically.
    3. A comfy chair, a book, and a brand new fountain pen.

    Current pen rotation: way too many!

    1. I arrived home safely from my two weeks in Oregon.
    2. A fantastically relaxing haircut and pedicure.
    3. My cats being stuck to me after my long absence.

    Or, an alternative list could like this:

    1. Received my Delta Dolce Vita back from Yaffa all repaired and beautiful.
    2. Received my Opera Blue Typhoon and it's LOVELY! :-)
    3. Received my 3 tablets of Tomoe River Paper. Me thinks these are all quite compatible things!

    How many cats do you have ? I recall there is one whose tail brushes across your writing.
    Congrats on the Opera Blue Typhoon (swoon) Does that come with the big chrome-plated syringe ink refiller thing? Don't scare your cats into thinking you are a vet.

    LOL! Four cats exactly, menacing enough to feel like 8. The only girl hates when I write and will do many things including swipe me. Yes, the Typhoon was a great price, brand new ( shipped directly from Coles, actually) so I am super pleased. Yes, the "mosquito filler" came with though I have not yet inked. Maybe it is just the thing I need to keep the felines at bay!

    1. I relaxed.

    2. This was after we finished two mixed-paver planting bed edgings that had been bugging me for years.

    3. Finally drafted my Superhero Pens blog post, and finished a sketch to illustrate my newest fic.

    The above was from yesterday. It's too early to tell yet today. ;p
