My ebay purchases arrived this week. I bought a Uni Kuru Toga mechanical pencil and a fountain pen case. Posts coming soon!

Some topics covered this week:

  • I copied out this article on brainpickings.org called Dare to Disturb the Universe. I love Madeleine L’Engle and this article is great.
  • We all take sleep for granted; until we don’t have it. I’ve been struggling with sleeplessness due to a terrible cold and it’s interesting the havoc that creates in the mind and body. It’s not surprising that sleep deprivation is used in torture!
  • We put Gracie (one of our cats) on thyroid medication about 6 months ago, and the treatment involves a syringe of medicine in the mouth twice a day. No problem; over time we’ve got to be experts and Gracie is very cooperative. It tastes like chicken (apparently) so maybe she likes it. But last night we had to take Halley (our other cat) to the vet and she has a temporary problem which needs a similar treatment to Gracie’s. We are discovering that Halley is not so accommodating. We’ve attempted to administer the medicine twice with no luck at all. I phoned the vet and she gave us some tricks to try. Tomorrow morning the war starts again!

Until next week, happy writing!
