It seems nothing is ever as simple as it should be with cars anymore. I brought the car in for an oil change at one of those "quick" places, which it was. But, when they went to pull the dipstick out to check the level, it broke. Thankfully they took care of getting a replacement and installing it.
We made an appointment to get the snow tires put on that same car. I arranged to work from home on Friday so we could drop off the car. When we arrived we found out that they hadn't put the work on the schedule and were booked for the day. The shop managed to get the work done in spite of their busy schedule and even gave the car a good once over for other things as well. That garage is a keeper!
We didn't get any snow!
Himself detailed the inside of the car, ridding it of copious amounts of dog hair and dirt and gravel from our hikes in the park. I feel like I'm riding around in a chariot now!

I am ever so grateful that the price of gas has dropped. It's now under two dollars a gallon here.

Since my tip to the UK was cancelled last weekend I had time to get some yard work done that I hadn't yet gotten to do. I had been wondering when I was going to get it done. All the perennials in the back garden have been cut back and the leaves raked up and put into the compost.

I had time yesterday to plow through my messy, messy office and rid it of much clutter, old craft and sewing projects, and paperwork. Somehow it always seems to sneak up on me. It's not perfect, but I feel so much better in there now. I don't know about you, but I find neat and clean to be very calming.

Did you know you can get playing cards made with whatever picture you want on them? Sis had a deck made up with my most beautiful niece's photo for my birthday. It was such a perfect present since Himself and I often play rummy in the evening and Sis and BIL join us for euchre games now and then.
