Day 104 - Adventures!
Friday, March 13, 2015
We had a great couple days yesterday and today. Yesterday, Steve took me for a ride on his scooter out to the end of our peninsula that juts out into the middle of the lake (creating the spot called the Narrows, where Mount Konocti at the south and our peninsula to the north almost meet). We went up into some of the high bluffs, where the views are magnificent. It was so much fun, and we talked about how great it would be to bring a picnic lunch up there, although there's isn't really a picnic spot, but we could certainly create one.
And here's photo of my handsome tour guide:
Today we drove down to Santa Rosa to pick up the new truck. After we got it, we went to the other side of the freeway to shop at Trader Joe's and BevMo, and to look at new laptops for me at BestBuy (we have a 10% coupon from the US Postal Service for putting in our change of address info). We drove the new truck back to Clearlake and both commented on what a smooth ride it had. It's really beautiful and so nicely appointed! It was really fun to drive back.
We picked up some new nightstands at a local consignment furniture store in town, and then went on a great hike up into the hills again to enjoy the view. The breeze off the lake was cooling, and we had a fabulous afternoon workout. We know beyond a doubt that we are meant to be here.
I had hoped to post some news about a job opportunity here, but I don't have anything definitive yet. Say a prayer for me that the decision makers decide that I'm the perfect person for the job. I am beyond excitement for the position, and hope that it all works out for the best.
I hope you all take some kind of adventure this weekend. Adventures of any kind make life worth living!
