Running around

Nice swim this morning because the deep end wasn't crowded at all. I don't think there was ever more than two other people in there with me at any point. Afterward in the locker room, I asked a guy I know who's there a lot who flips houses if he happens to know any contractors because we want to remodel our main bathroom. He didn't, but a guy who does that sort of work overheard and introduced himself. He could do most of the work off the books, during nights and weekends, but recommended we call his main employer since we want to work with someone licensed and bonded. So I've added them to the list, but we may not need to call them. I have a referral from a Facebook friend (his brother) coming over a week from tomorrow to have a look, and I got an email from a company some friends of ours have worked with.

Speaking of getting things done, I drove out to Marysville at lunchtime to get my car's emissions tested. There was an interesting-looking restaurant across the street, so I ate there. It was ok.

I like to hit the thrift stores when I go up there, but today that was just one store, because there was a fire recently at their Value Village. Goodwill seemed pretty crowded, I wonder if it's because there's currently less competition.

It's been a while since I did a hyperlapse from the car, but the sky was nice on the way home, so I set it up as I headed out of town.
