I’ve sketched and journaled this year, but was too busy and/or exhausted to post….
So, going back, there will be some retro posts of our time earlier this year, before I stopped sketching at all and began journaling furiously.
After a year of Covid and no end in sight, the entire situation finally was wearing on us… When Valentine’s Day came around all we wanted to do was not see or speak to a single human being except each other all day!
Our first order of amazing
small cakes from Portland Bakery was the real treat —
Four cakes slightly larger
than a cupcake
(a nice sharable size)
came in four flavors:
Chocolate Berry, and
We strung lights, turned the ringers off on the phones,
napped, slept late,
never took off our pajamas, napped, binged on old movies, and, did I say napped?
Mitchell also surprised me with a lovely Mala that is stretchy and I have not taken it off!
Cats were happy, as they got to take turns on laps over the three day weekend…
We were happy with good food (yes I cooked) and no plans!
BEST Valentine’s Day!

Me… why I journal!
