Thank you!!!!

I am so very behind! I recieved a package from my SP12 Spoiler about a week ago, and haven't blogged about it. Bad me!

My wonderful spoiler sent me a book that I have been looking at for awhile.

It is called "a fine fleece" by Lisa Lloyd

I have had my nose in it devouring the information and the beautiful pictures. I like the fact that the author made two of each project - one from hand spun and the other from mill spun. Sometimes I mixed up which was which! Great information source and wonderful patterns!
Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to see a man about a horse

Actually a lady about a car, but I like that saying :)

My truck is getting older (it is just old actually), an 1989, and a gas HOG (10mpg!!). So, yesterday, I went and testdrove some vehicals. I wasn't really wanting/needing/expecting to buy at that time, but it happened! I did my research extentively for about a week and narrowed it down to three. The Nissian Rouge, the Honda CRV, and the Mitsubihi Outlander. I ended up going with the Rouge. This is not a picture of my actual car, but off the Nissan web site.

It is a Nissan Rouge SL AWD. And this is the key.

Neat huh? I can leave it in my purse and as long as I am withing 2-3feet, I am able to open the door(s). Also, I don't need a key to start the car. I was very concerned about that until the saleslady told me all of the security features about the keyless key. Very cool.

I have AC again!!!!!!!!

Question #8

What is your favorite supper for a hot summer evening?

Ceviche (sp?). Hands down. My ex some years ago brought home this stuff and asked me to try it. It was this salsa looking stuff that had fish in it. It was good!
So, I started making it at home, but I tweaked it some. Instead of fish, I use shrimp. So light and fresh. Now, I need to go make some.
