Sassafrass doesn’t really care that she is bogarting the warm air, making the rest of us shiver now that October has finally turned down the temperature outside forcing me to turn on my heat pump.
I’ve been crocheting like a maniac though so I have plenty of new shawls to keep me warm in this cold rainy weather!
It turned out so big that it didn’t fit on the blocking mats. Ignore little Miss Supervisor. She is such a taskmaster!
I also had to say goodbye to my dear little purple Chevy Cavalier, that I have been happily tooling away in since 1998. Even though she had only 80,200 miles on her, her frame sadly had rusted out so badly underneath she wouldn’t get through inspection. I loved this car.
And hello my new 2012 Chevy Cruze. It is really weird trying to figure out how to work this thing with all her new modern gadgets. The key isn’t a key, its got buttons all over it and I can start her from inside the house if I want! And cruise control, automatic windows, the lights do their thing without me making them, I can change the radio station with the steering wheel, and all sorts of cool stuff! Would you believe it took me almost a week to figure out how to get the back door to open up from the outside for me. I’m such a noob.
I was so nervous about buying a car all by myself, but I put my big girl panties on and it turned out okay. One more thing off the To Do Checklist – and ahead of schedule no less! See, I can pretend to be a grown up when I need to – after fifty-two years I can fake it pretty good.
