After Tuesday's movement of all of my possessions onto a truck, my flight out to Seattle, and some drama with a burglar alarm that is now dead, I'm comfortably ensconced in the upper bedroom of an empty house. Starbucks 5 minutes away, 2 groceries and the bank within walking distance, I'm getting to know a relatively mellow neighborhood.
I also saw a couple of these birds bathing in our backyard teeny fountain on Weds:
Pretty, isn't it? My friend Lee in CA sez that it's a Steller's Jay, and Wikipedia apparently agrees, since that's where I got the picture.
More tales to follow, but for now I need to work on some cover letters for the long slog thru a job search.
