unraveled wednesday | 12.18.19


~a friend is a present you give yourself~

Is unwrapping the same as unraveling? Of course not, silly. Today, Pat, my longtime friend of 33 years and I met for a long overdue lunch and reconnection. We’d not seen one another for nearly three months! We had a lot of catching up to do…and we did. We also celebrated my birthday (Nov); the lovely journal – despite the light’s glare – a gift from Pat, is made by an artist who lives in Oregon. After lunch, we stopped at a delightful store that sells all sorts of art supplies… I needed to replenish ink for my LAMY pen. And we both had our creative juices stirred a bit by some gorgeous iridescent watercolor paints; for sure, we’re coming back in 2020, just around the corner!

After two days of rain, today was sunny, lovely and cold! Perfect for spending quality friend time. Tho’ I have not included any knitting or other fun craft update in this post nor nary a word about this past week’s reads, I encourage you to join Kat and others for Unraveled Wednesday… lotsa good books and fun knitting projects are shared there!

  1. A new journal is a delightful gift. I just ordered one from Churchmouse. This is a change for me because I usually like to see a journal before purchasing. I have a LAMY pen that I really enjoy.


  2. What a fun day you had! And gosh it is cold outside today for sure (17 this a.m. on my ride into work). I need to go see what Lamy pens are – I’ve never heard of them!


  3. It’s a lovely journal, and I know you’ll make good use of it. I had a set of metallic watercolors on my Christmas wish list, but luckily I stumbled upon a set I purchased YEARS ago. I tried them out on one of my Christmas cards, and quickly eliminated the watercolors from my wish list. It does tell me, however, that an inventory of my supplies is in order, though it’s unlikely to happen anytime soon! Cold here, too, 8° when we woke up.


  4. I love my LAMY pens … and I have that one! I’m impressed you expressed even a bit of restraint at the art supply store. I know that’s your kryptonite!
