A Grab Bag

Day’s Verse:
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Matthew 6:19-21

I’m “working” from home today — by which I mean every hour I actually get about 30 minutes of productive Bicycle Alliance-related word finished. When the phone rings, I keep having this urge to answer, “Bicycle Alliance, this is Katie.” I find it remarkably difficult to just say, “Hello?” when I answer the phone.

Also, I noticed that Carmel preferentially places herself nearest whatever humans are nearby, with one exception: When she can find a sunny spot to lay in. Then proximity to people plummets in value.

And, while I’m talking about random stuff, I’ve spent some time drooling over astonishingly nice townhouses in Seattle. This one in Phinney Ridge (a short sale, so “dream on” is an appropriate view for me to take), this one on Ravenna Boulevard, and this one in Kirkland (for something different) all look pretty amazing. Ian and I think we could scrape together more than 20% of a down payment on a home in that price range. As I enter my 5th month (!!) living with my parents, I think I’m just ready to have a home again.

Also, Ian’s job interview seems to have gone well, because negotiations with StrataGen continue.
