New Building Top-off Ceremony

Last week at work, we held a top-off ceremony for the new METI building (yay!) and had a nice BBQ lunch. I guess traditionally, a top-off ceremony involves placing an evergreen tree or shrub on top of the building, once the final beams of the structure are in place. Our builders decided that, instead of an evergreen, they'd paint four of the pillars white for us to sign. Which I thought was neat... though you'll have to take the building apart to see it :)

New Apt

So this marks the end of an era. The end of my time at Heron's Run Apartments. It's been a swell 7 years! I'll miss the green landscape, and community pool and hot tub, and my 3rd-floor balcony and view. I won't miss the pollen.

I am off to greener pastures, in the form of a villa, which as I understand it, is kind of like a condo. But different. In any case, it's big, is newly renovated, has two floors (stairs!) and a two-car garage. It's in a nice neighborhood too. Looking forward to sharing it with my sweetie.

Spent the majority of the weekend moving items from my and Joy's places to the new one. Was looking forward to Ultimate today, but a wall of rain cancelled those plans! Next week I guess.
