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.

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....

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

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. :)

Tucker! He looks so much better!

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!

New heights

I went to Alum Rock Park today for a walk, and in true Bartz fashion ended up doing a steep, strenuous hike up to the highest peak, which provided me with a sweeping view from the observatory all the way across San Jose to the bay. Can't believe it took me so long to do that hike. Been considering doing it for awhile, and it was definitely worth it! Then in memory of all the times dad took me out to get ice cream after hiking, I decided to treat myself. I'm pooped, but it was a day well spent I'd say! :)

This weekend I found out that I really am addicted to coffee. Perhaps it's a habit I should break...
