    Good gel pens…sigh! I’m down to the very last of my (discontinued!) Pentel Hybrid Gel pens. I’ve searched high and low for a good replacement but it’s never quite the same…

    Your second list proves we should hang out. Anyone who lists cupcakes, pens, cheeseburgers, and reruns is my soul sister.

    I discovered pluots last year at the farmers market here in this town we moved to. I love them as well, the greens one are really good too:-)
