Ma and Pa visited to help me haul the mattress back up to the garage, and I thought they would stay the night, but nope! Back to Salvador! I did get them to play Scattergories with me. And they brought me chocolate treats. I helped Dad get his phone set up. We are all of Verizon now! Yay! The boxes of books were relocated from the cubby. Mom apologized for making the tidyness of the house disrupted. At least she also complimented me on my little homey touches.

Yesterday I met Celia at 5 at Scampi & halibuts for fish& and chips. I had the two piece with some battered shrimp. I may not be a food snob about many things but you gotta make fried fish right. From food we went to Chimacum high school and saw the Roz Chast lecture. What an adorable, talented cartoonist! She was lovely. Great to see a woman who has cartooned for so many years. I saw a job posting today that was asking for a cartoonist and the compensation was no pay. NO WAY TO NO PAY! That is messed up.

It takes some time to sift through job listings and to cross reference locations to make sure it's within an hours drive. Did find some closer in postings. 

Right now I am considering dyeing my hair. Last time I did so was before Carmen was even married! I'm ready for a change, and the style is staying. Now to sleep and to dream.

ABC, Andrya, Brynne, Celia

I am by myself once again. Nice to have visitors, however brief. Nice to have meals made and all that jazz. Brynne rested long in bed each morning, but as the bed set up is deluxe, I'm glad she got much use out of it. Andrya made an awesome fritata with kale and mushrooms and other goodness. The weather could not have been better. I helped bring down the kayaks and Andrya and Brynne took lengthy paddles both days. Not so bad to haul them down with a bit of help.

Dinner was rice and curry and Celia came over and we gorged and it was amazing all around! So tasty. I had several servings. Something in red wine, the sulfates?, makes me congested it would appear, so I'm sticking to white. Or whiskey.

Brynne made this apple loaf, but it wasn't quite loafy enough so she left me the lot of it, which serves my taste buds just fine! It's more a flat cake than a loaf.

Lots of talk, gabbing, and more talk. Good that the weather is good and auntie was able to kayak!

And now to rest. Tuesday! Time to dust off the resume and really get down to job applying. Yay.
