Sunday breakfast at home 2007
Santa Cruz 2007
Gazos Grill, Highway 1, favorite spot of motorcyclists it seems
And with good reason, our lunch was delicious.
(At the UCSC reunion I had Joe snap a couple pictures of this display, with photo of my college roommate Lisa)
A walk in the woods at UCSC
Joe is actually much happier than this quick snapshot reveals.
Dark humor in UCSC graffiti; Edward Gorey would approve, I think.
The view from Cowell College hasn't changed much, thank goodness

Card by Ephemera, I think it was.

We get sentimental about the silliest things
This is the 4 cup measure we had when I was a kid and always used when making fondue. I smelled - only in my imagination - swiss cheese & tarragon when I picked it up. I am trying hard to be strong and not rescue this from the Goodwill bag. We have 3 perfectly good, much easier to clean glass Pyrex measuring cups. Sigh. Bye bye, measuring cup!
Simian Liberation Army mug
from my past career as a monkey kidnapper...
There was a purge to whittle down to a reasonable half dozen mugs, so this is a farewell photo.
All meta, all the time.

Sunday morning Joe on the lower deck 2007
Reading the paper and catching a little sunshine after Chris stopped by and relieved us of moving boxes and some spare dishes.
Interesting construction downtown 2007
Some redundancy in this set as I was holding my phonecam up over a fence to take the shots and had to try again a few times.
Thursday condition 2007
(compare to a photo from before)
Thursday closet condition
Thursday kitchen condition
Thursday mystery hall condition
Thursday front bathroom condition
Thursday office condition
Thursday bedroom condition
I love how the blue paper from the laundry accentuates the "leaping fish down the rapids" effect.
Thursday hall condition
Thursday dining room condition
Books in place
These are all our books including cookbooks & bar guides.
We decided to arrange by color, just for fun.
Standing in the living room looking back past the hall to the front bathroom toward the kitchen:

A spot cleared for the new counter extension
Much progress was made subsequent to this picture. Joe built the dish cupboard. I got much of the counter assembled (with a bit of help on the two person bits). We hope to put in the drawers & put the top on the counter tonight and then be able to finish unpacking the kitchen boxes. Woo!

at Frisson 2007
Lovely soup with beautiful reflections at Frisson
Truly the best presentation incorporating sensory delights of the room I have ever seen. The reflection in the soup spoon was perfect too.
Vegi ravioli at Frisson
(And a curiously satisfying despite its poor quality photo from me:)

Cincinnati airport 2007
Missed flight home due to first flight being late. On next flight four hours later. Blah.

... than to get up at 4:30am the next morning and fly off on business trips.

How to pack a truck
And you'd be stunned at some of the stuff they brought down that narrow winding front staircase.

Packing well along the way 2007
My worldly goods, mostly
Plus a bookcase, a bed, some dressers & an armoire or two...
All packed up & ready to go
