The rental place we're hoping to get an apartment with hadn't gotten back to us by Monday, which seemed a bit odd, so we gave them a call and found out that their e-mail system wasn't working and so they hadn't received our application at all, and since the application had our phone numbers, they hadn't been able to call us. So my bank helpfully let us use their fax machine to have a paper copy faxed to us, which we filled out and faxed back in (I went ahead nad faxed a printout of the electronic application anyway, just to be safe). So hopefully we will get a call back very soon.
Jason called the people who are supposed to be looking into him getting the job we currently refer to a the "good job" and was told they didn't know yet, basically, and that they would call him. We were not given a timeline for when this call would occur by. So cross your fingers.
We are not going to be able to drive his car even going slow back from the mechanic's in Litchfield. We asked if they knew anyone in town who might buy up a car for scrap metal, and they didn't. So I don't know what's going to happen with that car, but eventually we have to go take it off their lot at least.
See, all of this is going nowhere exciting, huh? Oh well. At least I think about 1/4 of our stuff is packed now. Ish.
I am in the midst of an experiment. I have made iced coffee quite a bit recently that has come out delicious. I also like to make 'cuban coffee'- coffee with dark brown sugar and cinnamon in it, topped with milk. I am, today, attempting to combine those two delicious things into Iced Cuban Coffee. Wish me luck, compadres.
I will share my secrets with you if it comes out at all the way I hope it will.
Neat. Seriously... just neat.
I happened to catch an odd movement off to my left in a small, grassy clearing we've often seen turkeys or deer roaming around in. The grass is brownish-tan now, the perfect color to hide in. And there's a small pile of fallen tree limbs. But something wasn't right about one of them.
So I engaged my trusty zoom-in function on my camera and...
Wildlife is just so cool.
And then comes back again when you don't even have to zoom to get a close-up photo.
