Mountain View weather is back to what all the tales of milk and honey had promised: sunny, about 65F, even in the early part of January. Can't complain about that.
I just earned some cosmic karma by delivering a mis-delivered package. UPS left the box at my apt. complex even though it was addressed for someone 4 blocks away. No one in my complex had bothered to do anything about it in the last 10 days since it was delivered. I called the recipient today and he picked it up. I don't know how long the box would have sat in the mail alcove otherwise.
Today's trip to the 2nd hand store resulted in: a 4-quart Tupperware container; a new brownie baking pan with snap-on lid; and a chinese watercolor painting of unknown origin. The painting was a bit pricey for 2nd-hand store fare, but it looked nice and I'm curious to learn more about it. It's probably just something done recently, but it'll be a fun mystery to investigate for the next couple of days or weeks.
Alright, I can't put everything on my mind in my first post after two weeks, so I'll wait 'til later for more.
