Between the pandemic, working long hours, and the protests I have had
no time for posting. I continued to make marks late at night.
Our anniversary in May was quiet and we slept, ate,
and binge watched the Good Karma Hospital.
Who would have thought our 18th wedding anniversary
the gifts would be matching pandemic masks?
We shopped locally for our fun silly gifts.
I am starting to use bags and other papers as tipins to my journal,
partly as memories and come of the papers are lovely…
Our local Oblation Papers was a great tipin for writing on the back.
We bought a pen for each of us and inks.
Mine is an inexpensive Platignum from London pen from Oblation;
His is the Retro51 Cosair (no longer available).
The glitter inks we are sharing! We owned Robert Oster Heart of Gold
(a favorite) and added the Robert Oster Aussie Liquid Gold.
I mean, wow — we are writing shimmering glittery love poems now!
