The pencil holder

Not only have I been awful at updating my journal, I totally didn’t even realize it was Mardi Gras until I heard Obama’s first address to Congress. We’ve beignets in the cupboard just waiting to be made.

And another thing… I seem to forget the joy of using a pencil or a pen. I keep ’em tucked away at my desk way back in the spare bedroom.

While working at home yesterday I pulled the coffee can stocked with implements out to the dining room. I’ve half a mind to keep ’em there because not only does the can look nice, but it serves a purpose. I should have more tchotchkes that inspire creativity littered around the joint.

In other news, you might remember to click on images to zoom, but I’ve also been more diligent updating the daily album over there.
