Lessee.

I took Friday off for Mental Health. We drove straight over the Santa Cruz mountains on tiny windy roads, myself at the wheel, no rush. Lunch in Pescadero, not at famous Duarte's (thirty minute wait) but at the Country Store restaurant up the street. Then to Bean Hollow State Beach where we meditated on the waves and i visited tide pools.

I've bid on two sets of gold flatware to go with the china. One set is won, and that will cover the tea set and the six settings without tea cups. Another set looks to be almost won at a sweet agreeable price. I've bought the matching linens. Soon the fashion photography will begin.

It looks like mis-matched china teasets are going for hundreds of dollars on etsy. Hopefully, the additional elements i'm adding will get the premium price i am hoping for.

I didn't attend Meeting but did some research on visioning process for Meeting as well as some discussions about elephant herding with Christine.

Work starts in fifteen minutes with conference calls for a standards group outside work.

Before we begin the home buying process in earnest here in California, i believe i will be asking my directory and manager whether i could keep my job if we moved to NC. This sort of timing issue would be gone then, and we wouldn't be buying on the Hayward fault (and probably within reach of sea level rise).

Oh man I love Santa Cruz and its environs So Much. I'm totally envious. But yeah seeing the actual San Andreas fault line written right there in the rock is a little scary.

Actually, i've spent much more time on the San Andreas than the Hayward. 8) On Friday we stopped so i could walk a trail to visit a sag pond formed on the San Andreas.

When I was last in SC, I rode with cyclelicious down to see where the hayward fault intersected with one of the local lakes -- which of course is there because of the fault. Cool geography.

I of course would love if you moved to NC :) Have you thought about how much travelling to CA/OH you would be willing/able to do?

I'm not sure the travel would be much different. I've thought about offering to visit Ohio more, but i think just being in the same time zone would be an attraction.

I just checked and the driving time between the Ohio location and NC isn't as long as i thought. Maybe Ohio would work out.
