Happy Friday! With the long weekend coming up, I hope you have some exciting Thanksgiving plans, whether it's turkey with family, or a long date with Netflix and some Indian take-out (I took a walk with Caleb all the way to the Gerrard India Bazaar and after smelling all that delicious Indian food I have been craving Butter Chicken like crazy ever since).

Sometimes people ask what my or Jon's favourite pen is, and it's a bit of a hard question to answer, since there are so many! I thought I would share a few of my favourite pens + inks I have in my pen roll right now, and maybe I'll do this every once in a while, since pens are always changing. Actually, I have a few more than four pens inked right now, but I thought I would take it easy this first time ;)

I'm trying to convince Jon to let me do up his currently inked pens, but he says his handwriting is too terrible to be published on the internet (like something being "too terrible" has ever stopped anyone else from putting it on the internet). I'm working on it. I'm also concurrently working on convincing him to be my guinea pig for how to redeem your handwriting as an adult. I'll let you know how it goes. In other news, a pretty exciting thing finally happened - I'm writing this blog post from our local library!* When the baby was a true infant, newborn, I used to be able to go to cafes with the baby in a wrap, and he would just be snoozing. After he got a bit older, he started waking much more easily, so it was a bit more difficult, or at least I required Jon if we were going to go to a cafe, so we could take turns entertaining the prince. Even now at home, it's a bit tough to get work done at the computer, as Caleb is kind of a high energy kid, and he's always trying to put books and toys into my lap. It finally occurred to me that while Caleb was sleeping in his stroller on our afternoon walks, I could bring my laptop and get some work done. It's peaceful and bright, I'm not looking at a kitchen sink full of dishes, and as a bonus, blog posts aren't getting published at 10:30 in the evening! I read an article about how you're supposed to strategize when you publish your blog posts to maximize your readership... *Shortly after having written that sentence, the bear cub awoke, and we had to make a quick exit.

So many browns! I’ve mostly had vibrant ink colours up until now so I’ve tried dabbling into the neutrals world with J. Herbin Lie de The and I love it! :)
