Today [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor, [livejournal.com profile] ingvisson, and Patrick came by; they were going to deal with G's bicycle, which has been stored in my garage. Patrick bought a bunch of books from me, and some cds and dvds, which all made me quite happy. I remembered that I still had a small stack of vinyl on a shelf, so I priced out that stuff, too. If you still have a turntable, maybe you'd be interested in that, as well.

I will be extending the book sale open house into Saturday the 22nd from about 2-7pm as well as Friday, because I know most folks work during the week, and a Saturday might be easier for people to come and browse things. Items range from pocket change (less than a dollar for poetry journals, pamphlets and such) to $250 for the 4-volume set of Katherine Briggs's Dictionary of British Folk-Tales.

My bicycle (cargo bike) is for sale, $500, includes lock, air pump, bike helmet, lights, and other gear. It's an awesome bike that I didn't get nearly enough use out of for various reasons. Tires will need to be pumped up and checked, and the chain cleaned and oiled again, but otherwise it's pretty much in new condition.

The weather was gorgeous today and I walked down to mail out a package for my mom. I had a scoop of mango yogurt at the Baskin-Robbins next to the mail place. I always feel like I'm listing a bit when I walk, but there's no alternative anymore. I'm considering giving up the cane and using hiking poles so that I won't feel like I have to lean all my weight on one side to keep from wavering around on the sidewalk. It's pretty weird to feel that way. [livejournal.com profile] lakmiseiru, I know you understand about the hiking poles business. It does mean that carrying one of my backpacks is likely to be a much more common occurrence in coming days.

I've been checking rentals around Seattle and under $1000/month is possible if I'm not terribly picky (and at this point, I'm not, given I'm only looking for temp housing). I'm not sure what lease/month to month is like these days. Some places list leases (6 months to a year is common, though 3 or 6 months occasionally appears). I'll be looking for a month-to-month, though, when I leave Everett. A fair number of them do allow small dogs, which is encouraging. There are, in fact, places in Capitol Hill, Belltown, lower Queen Anne, and the U District that seem viable, but I can't look into them until I have someone dealing with rentals and a move-out date for the condo.

Sally asked if I'd heard from our property manager yet. I told her if I hadn't heard by the end of tomorrow, I'd email him again and get confirmation. That sounded to me like a go-ahead for renting the place, but I want to get it from the management, and I need to ask him about finding a property manager for the condo.

So much to do.
