We're still in escrow. There was a flurry of electronic paperwork full of disclosures that required our crazy electronic signatures and initials. Sellers sign. Buyers sign. We read all the fine print and make sure all the boxes are checked as they should be. Then nothing for a few days. There will be an inspection and once all of that is over, we have to sign off on all contingencies and wait for escrow to close. We've walked over to the house a few times. We still like it and the neighborhood. So far so good.
I still haven't found a dentist, but the one I've been hoping to see will be back from vacation on July 7th. Maybe he'll take a few minutes to see me and tell me what's going on with this crazy tooth of mine. I'm not in pain, but the endless pressure has been slowly driving me crazy. I haven't taken a photograph in weeks. That's how distracting this weird discomfort is. I'm sick of it. If he can't see me, I'm planning to head back to the emergency clinic just to make sure there isn't an infection building slowly.
We were planning to do a post called Quacks and Moos about how we walk around the neighborhood and talk to the animals. I did photograph this cow around the corner from our little rental here. It was going to be part of the quack and moo story, but I'm not sure we'll ever get around to doing that one. We're moving even closer to big dairy cow land. There will definitely be more cow photos in the future.
Back in June we wrote about how much we like our little neighborhood here. Interestingly, a few days later there was a knock on our door and our very adorable pre-teen neighbor and her friend were giggling out there, offering us homemade cookies to buy. They said they were starting a little business and gave us one of their hand-made business cards. They call themselves NWPC, for the Nerdy Wart People Club. We bought four delicious chocolate chip cookies, and we've been hoping they'll come back!
I was going through some of my older photos the other day and found this one from March, when we were at the beach house. I think it's a pretty good example of a Virga. I sent it to The Cloud Appreciation Society to see what they think. It's been a while since any atmospheric optics or interesting clouds have crossed our skies. Even in my malaise I still run outside to check. There are some things that I won't miss no matter how I'm feeling.
We hope you all had a good 4th of July. We don't celebrate and were pretty glad our neighbor only shot off noisy things until 10:30. Such a crazy holiday.
