I'm sorry for the long time between posts - not my fault!!!! The server that provides the wireless internet connection at my apt has been down for two weeks and I just haven't felt like staying at work after work to play on the internet - so sorry, if you suffered!
Nantucket is still Nantucket - the fall season is definitely moving in now with nice cloudy and windy fall days. I had to battle the wind on my bike ride home yesterday from work. There really aren't hills to speak of in Nantucket - certainly not compared to Houghton! But even the little downhills that I enjoy speeding through, I had to fight against - I understand that this is life on the island - lots o' wind particularly as fall and then winter approach. And then to top it all off, I got a flat bike tire (I mean instantly and extremely flat tire) and had to walk the rest of the way home. That was okay but annoying 'cause I have a friend visiting who was using the car and now I have to leave her vehicle-less for the day! Off to the bike shop after work today!
Now, here's something kinda cool. The washer and dryer for my apt finally got installed last week. But it's something new and exciting - it's a washer/dryer - wait for it - combination! One unit both washes and dries - there is no need to take the clothes out and put them in a different unit. It is one of the craziest things I've seen lately - who knew that they made something like this?! It still baffles me a little bit - I mean, there's no lint trap for the dryer! It's just insane BUT it washes my clothes and it works for me!
