No Quilty pictures - just so you know.
I have been trying to buy a car new-to-me (i.e. used). It was supposed to be delivered on Monday, but as they were driving it here a light on the dash went on. Yes, I realize that it is better that it happened before I took ownership, but it has meant that I still don't have the car. The dealer had to find the part in Portland, Or and have it shipped over-night and then install it. Something to do with an airbag light - which I'm told are notorious for malfunctioning. At the latest report, it is supposed to be arriving tomorrow about noon. I realize that this is partly my doing - I simply loathe dealing with car dealers and the shenanigans of 'I'm willing to pay X' - 'well, I'll run that past my finance manager', etc, etc. So this car is coming through a buying service. Even with their cost included I'm paying $2200 less than asking price. So I figure that is just fine. Here it is:
Pretty cute, huh? It's a Honda Fit, 2007. What made this one particularly good was that it can be towed behind the motorhome 4 down (with all 4 wheels on the ground - not on a trailer) and it is an automatic. In a city that is full of hills, that's the only way to go.
While I have been waiting for its arrival, I have had some time on my hands, so to speak. I have made 3 stars to send to my quilty girls from the Netherlands. We decided while they were here that we would make stars for each other, over the next several months. So I thought to get them done, but really shouldn't show you until they see them first. Also this morning, it seemed a good time to vacuum and attend to the dusting. It seems that the maid hasn't been coming regularly, so I needed to follow up and do those things. ;-> So my house is pretty tidy, stars are made - hmmmm, what's next?
