It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a writer at work rarely has anything newsworthy to report.
However! I did want to let y’all know that the new entry way bench arrived this morning, and it looks like it has always been there. Still haven’t solved the rug situation, but we’ll get there. . .
Other than that, I did commit fountain pen the other day, bringing my hoard to six pens — three Pilot Metropolitan cartridge pens, which get very little use at the moment, but which have the distinction of having Shown Me The Way. The three in use daily are TWSBI demonstrators — two ECOs and (the new) one GO. Ink colors, for those who want Deep Details are Noodler’s Wampum, Diamine Sherwood Green, and Diamine Ancient Copper.
Fans of the cats will wish to know that they’re enjoying the new place, and that the work of locating Appropriate Cat Spots is ongoing. Management is in receipt of a request that we use the sofa in the living room more often, maybe watch a movie or something, huh? Something where a cat can get a serious snuggle going.

I continue to like the new digs very much; it’s amazing how quickly we got rooted; In a way, I feel like we’ve been living here for years.

Here’s a picture of the new bench:
