I think my landlady might be reclaiming the house. I don't want to move. I love my bosomy house on Mallory Avenue and I would very likely put off buying my own house indefinitely to live there longer. It is unsettling to be evicted, but also just the push I need.

Sarah and I went for coffee this morning at Albina Press and noticed a For Sale sign around the corner. Hmm. Medium size, West facing, side yard, quiet neighborhood... and affordable.

And what a calling card-  4600 N. Mississippi.
