still journaling and anniversary  
First off I want to say Happy Birthday to Calzephyr. I sent you a little something. It will be in two parts so they're going to be late too. I hope you had a great day today.

I've had a very nice day. I've drawn the four drawings for Inktober so far. They are turning out nice. Tomorrow's drawing is Chicken, so I want to draw a cute Salmon Faverolle. What is annoying about this thing is that it's just inking. I feel these drawings are incomplete. I want to color them either with pencils or digitally but the darn rule is ink only. I just imagine the salmon faverolle in pretty tan colors. So cute. I drew more in my bullet journal today. I got the next week drawn out as well as the prompts for inktober so I can cross them off. Bullet is doing good. She took a nap but has been pretty normal energy which I'm happy about. I'd like to eventually set up a playgym in my art room so she can be with me during the day. I bought a little budgie figure from Hobby Lobby and plan to repaint it and turn it into Bullet. My Fear plush is in NY right now. I can't wait to get it. They'll probably hold it in customs there for days for no reason. It's annoying how they do that. He arrived there yesterday. I'll have to do a few things to fix him up once he arrives. The main things are paint his skin and redo his wings. I don't know how tall he is or I'd start to redo his wings now.
22 year 8 month anniversary today. Yay!

Congratulations on your anniversary!

Things get held up at customs in Sydney, too. The tracking of them has not been good, with it saying that the item is in Sydney for a long time and then suddenly it is near. But I have heard that they have made it better recently.

Yeah that's what it's like with all our ports of entry too. It's annoying they make things sit there for days to weeks when really there's no reason. It's a stuffed toy, it should go through. Glad Sydney is getting better about it. Chicago made me wait a super long time. I forget what I ordered but it was from China and went there first.
EDIT: I just checked the tracking. Says he's in Tampa and should be today. I hope so. That would be great. Just what you mentioned about making you wait then suddenly it shows up.

There is a delay as it goes through customs but it was the system just not showing that it had moved from Sydney. The item would have actually left Sydney but that just didn't show on the tracking! So, it's the tracking part that has improved.

How exciting Scary Fear is arriving today! (Or tomorrow.)

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes!

I'm glad you're doing Inktober. It's all over Instagram and it's so much fun to see.

You're welcome. I hope your gift arrives soon.
I will post my first wave of Inktober here soon.
