well, apparently grown-up jobs do little in providing spare time to update one’s blog. really, i should have expected as much right?
i took over the framing position this week. man, it’s crazy. really, that should be in all capitals. C_R_A_Z_Y. i’m having such a great time and i appreciate the time i spent shadowing before Micah left. I have a lot to learn and i’m looking forward to it. Anyway, the job is good. I’ve only had 2 days off in the last 22 days and i’m planning on going in for a few hours tomorrow and Sunday. eh, it’s overtime and Dev’s out of town at the SCAA conference and barista championship in Minneapolis until next Tuesday.
i suppose i should back up a bit. a few weeks ago.
dev’s mom came in for a vist on her way home to Japan. we met her at the airport to help with her luggage. i hope that i can spend more time getting to know her. she’s a really special person. oh! that’s right, there were a lot of family gatherings in the past weeks. dev’s favourite cousin is getting married in october, so they had a champagne toast engagement party. it was really nice. we went with dev’s sister. i’m kind of socially awkward, especially around new people. but, really it was an easy go. i got along with everyone and actually carried on conversations about: the weather, our jobs, and the midwest. it was amazing.
on a different night, we went to dinner with dev’s sister and grandma. they were working on a project together in her grandma’s house. an interior decoration kind of thing. they are both great to hang out with. unfortunately, we went to this place Cafe Gratitude in Berkeley. it’s a vegan and raw food kind of place. i tried it, i really did. and i got SO sick. ugh, i don’t even want to think about it. it was bad.
let’s see, what else is new.
the garden is growing well. our radishes have been enjoyed in salads already, but everything else is still pluggin away. soon soon soon.
my mom sent a dvd to my cats. really, it’s true. it’s brilliant. Biggles doesn’t really notice it too much, but Busta is in complete awe. i played it on my laptop at first ,but then he ended up with his paw on my monitor. today i tried it out on the tv.
that’s all folks. photos of cats and my favorite view of the city on my drive between work and one of the framing companies we use.
i love california.
