1) I bought a house! This is a very nice two-story house within walking distance of Licton Springs Park, right by North Seattle Community College. I have a front yard and a back yard and a vegetable garden. Yay!
2) I have a second corgi. Claire's older sister Kayla (same parents, different litter) ended up orphaned when her people passed away. With no one left to take her in, the breeder took Kayla back to find her a new home. She's far more affectionate than Claire, and higher-energy, but also rather... we'll go with 'ditzier.' If I were the writer of Hyperbole and a Half, Kayla would be 'simple dog.' Where Claire has figured out primitive tool use, Kayla has issues figuring out the couch.
3) I have a new car; I went electric, and have a Nissan LEAF. Yes, I love it. Yes, the range is sufficient for what I do.
Beyond that, yes, I'm still alive. That is all.
