Today is, in fact, the end of my year of taking a picture a day! I'm sort of amazed I actually finished it. I figured I should end the year with a picture reminiscent of the very first one.
I haven't decided if I will keep posting every day, or if I should just post good/interesting photos periodically.
This year definitely ended differently than I could have imagined, but in the end things seem to have changed for the best. I feel happier now than I have in a long time. Plus pumpkins always make me smile! :)

Bit of a bummer I have to pay to do the laundry again, but better than going somewhere else to do it! I'm leaving for Nevada City with Adam for the weekend. Should be nice!

Of the sea

Today I tried takoyaki, or octopus balls, well octopus ball really. Just a small bit of octopus inside a dough ball thing. Wasn't so bad..... but can't say I'd want to eat a lot of them....

27 September 2009

Mostly set up already! My new place is great! Adam and his dad helped me move everything. Or, well, they pretty much moved everything for me. And Lisa gave me a whole bunch of things-- a toaster, towels, dishes, utensils, etc. I'm pretty lucky to have had as much help as I did and, of course, so grateful to them.

26 September 2009

What a surprise to see these flowers blooming the morning I moved! I planted some morning glories a long time ago, and I thought they had completely died. Seeing them bloom again was a nice going away gift....

25 September 2009

Going away party group picture. It was super fun having all these wonderful people with me for my last night in San Jo!

24 September 2009

I'm sort of getting someone's wireless internet right now, so I'm going to take advantage of it. Don't actually get internet until Thursday!

A good way to draw attention to yourself....
I signed the lease for my new place today. I think it's going to be great! I'll have more pictures when I move in next weekend I'm sure. :)

Another fun year at Bark in the Park! Shane and Jeffra both came. Plus, as always, Mark made a delicious dinner for us followed by some wonderful apricot pie. How nice to spend time with such good people!
