I'm looking at my notes for this morning -- when you get to be my age you have to write everything down -- and right next to "refill cat's Prozac prescription" is "buy second Jawbone." That's because my Jawbone has been bleeping out on me, some days before lunch. They don't seem to make a Jawbone that will let you talk continuously for 8 hours, hard as that may seem to believe.
I don't know if you've been to the Jawbone website lately, but now the devices each have their own individual name: the Thinker, the Bombshell, the Catch. I'm surprised it's not a "collection." Oh, wait, it is. The Icon Collection. The worst part is having to make a choice. I had planned on getting a red one, but the Icon design is lighter and pretty cool. I'm gravitating toward the style that looks like earrings. Making choices is difficult when there are so many fabulous options to choose from. Aackk. This is more difficult than buying a pair of red shoes.
Here is a fabulous option for a home that once you see it, you'll want to buy it. No hesitation, no questions asked. This is a Pulte-built one-story in the subdivision of Northborough in Natomas. It's located on a quiet cul-de-sac right off Rockmont Circle. It has 2,369 square feet and, although it was built in 2002, the sellers have already made upgrades and improvements.
They replaced the counters in the kitchen with beautifully fabricated granite slab and installed a custom-designed island. For entertaining purposes, there is space in the kitchen for a table, additional seating along the breakfast bar plus a formal dining area in the living room. Some of the ceilings are 12-feet high. The entry ceiling could be 16-feet high.
This home has 3 bedrooms plus a home office, which could be converted to a 4th bedroom, and 2 1/2 baths. The family room has a raised fireplace and a space for a built-in entertainment center.
The back yard is exquisite. You'll find a custom covered patio that runs the entire length of the home, with columns, a wood ceiling, ceiling fans, lights -- everything you'd expect to find in an outdoor entertainment area. It's a perfect space for escaping the heat of simmering Sacramento summers. The yard is huge for Natomas. It's almost 1/3 of an acre. There are raised garden beds at one end and, at the other, a Koi pond and waterfall. The Koi fish can stay if a buyer wants to take care of them during escrow.
