My new passion is SUSHI!! Call me a sushi bitch, sushi whore, whatever ya want to call it, I love the stuff!
Ok, so it's not the raw stuff, though I am expanding my horizons with some of the "seared" stuff. I am a huge fan of most of the rolls. Blue Lake Casino and Sushi Spot are my two ultimate favorite places. I think BLC's Sunset Roll, and SS's Vegas Roll or Trinidad Roll are my all-time fav's. I have experimented at home a couple of times making a California Roll, or Bay Shrimp Roll as it is called other places.......it was pretty good, not perfect rice. Still worth the experience, but so much work! I have high respect for my sushi chefs!

I took my mom up to Agate Beach......it was during high tide, but we still enjoyed our time walking along the beach!
Another road trip for mom and daughter....this time we went to Founder's Grove....Working on photos of trees and the ocean for my sister, who recently moved to Alaska. She wanted a little bit of home on her walls!

- A new stoplight at Harris and Central in Eureka?! What a surprise when I came up the hill tonight to go to Winco. Seems strange seeing it there, but then so was the stoplight at 5th and M when it was first put in.....
- People seem to be really freaked out around the Mad River bridge construction site. So much that I've been frequently caught behind someone going about 20mph.
- The crab are coming! I can't wait for crab season to officially start......although a special kitty won't be here to enjoy, I will be sure to "crack a little for her"
I feel pretty settled into my new job, although there are still many, many things that I need to learn. I like to think of myself as a quick learner, so waiting for things to come up (trainings, return emails regarding questions I have)....leave me quite impatient at times! More often than not, I end up exploring more files, creating my own spreadsheets, and labeling more file folders so I can keep everything straight! I miss the days of controlling my own office supply budget, and if we needed something, I'd do a price comparison and get it ordered! These days, the belt is a little too tight (which I realize is not just MY case). I've become more of an Administrative Assistant with a slash of accounting, coming from a job that was 99% accounting. I STILL would not trade my job for my old one AT ALL right now! I am in a much better place =)
