Howdy, Folks! I hope you're spending time with family and friends. I certainly am. We've gone out of town to Potomac, MD for a few days to see my aunt and my dad (and a few cousins). I don't have pens or ink to show just now, but here are a few things from the last couple of days to tide you over.
Mrs. Inkdependence is under the weather with a sore throat and such, so much Alka-Seltzer has been consumed on her part. That stuff doesn't really taste like orange. I don't know what it is, but that taste is singular. (I'm not sick, but I had to know what made her make the face that she makes when she drinks it.)
We don't have much need of a roaring fire in NC, but it was a cold and dreary day on xmas eve so the fire was kinda the perfect thing.
We had a bunch of local family over for xmas eve dinner, and my Aunt makes a big spread for that occasion every year. Fancy china and a big table by the completely covered tree. She doesn't stop until every branch has at least one thing on it. Most of them are sagging under the weight of at least a couple of ornaments. It's pretty great.
My Dad's dog thinks that she is a lap-dog. Unfortunately for Dad's lap, Dreamer is a 98lb German Shepherd. She has been getting on just great with our little 17lb Scraggles.
Season's Greetings, all, and I'll be back soon with all sorts of inks and pens and associated whatnots!
