Happy to report that the car is back to running. It was the battery. Fletch was able to get it started and ran it for awhile to charge it up...turned it off...then was able to start it again. I thought we had replaced the battery last year, but it was 3-4 years ago. So, now I'm good to go for the Winter. And, I'm so glad it didn't start at home rather than at the end of the day when I was ready to leave work.
Close to You is now blocking. I gave it a good soak last night and then spread it out. I'm hoping it will be dry so that I can wear it on Thanksgiving day. I put a few more rows into my first Charade sock last night. I'm a tad bit bored with these as I'm making them long (like knee sock length), but I know I'll really enjoy them once they are finished (I need to remember that this is only the first one...). I've decided to not even think about Christmas knitting. I may cast on a hat for Colin (and I do have a pair of socks I made for Mailing), but other than that, nothing. I want to finish what's on the needles so that I can concentrate on NEW and EXCITING things (like ARROWS!!) when the holidays are over.
Today (aside from work) I need to run to the liquor store, Trader Joe's and book a pedicure appointment for tomorrow. Tomorrow, in between making pie crust dough and prepping veggies for Thursday, I want to relax a bit and just enjoy being home. Hopefully that means plenty of knitting time, reading time and, perhaps, an afternoon nap.
Wishing you all a delightful, joyful, restful, tasty and happy Thanksgiving!
Glad the car problem was just the battery. Good to have that solved. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
The best kind of fix for the car-good!ReplyDelete

Pesky batteries! Glad your fix was easy. Enjoy your down time. XOReplyDelete
Glad the car issue was an easy fix. Enjoy your leisure time this week - recharge your personal battery. 😉ReplyDelete
Whew...batteries are an easy fix! My poor Mini is still sitting in the driveway until I get up the nerve and the cash to deal with her expensive issues.ReplyDelete
I'm glad the car was an easy fix, and that your lovely Close to You is blocking. Take your patience to the liquor store (I just got back and it was wild!), and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
I think the car problem having an easy solution was a Thanksgiving gift to you from the universe. :-)ReplyDelete
I hope you have a really lovely Thanksgiving!
I wonder if corn cob cars run on batteries, too? (sorry, lame, I know, but that image just makes me smile!) ... wishing you a warm and restful holiday! Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Glad it was just the battery. Enjoy getting that pedicure, that is my guilty pleasure.ReplyDelete
Glad you are up and running again. Isn't it amazing how time flies. I am always amazed at how old our appliances are or how long ago we took a certain trip. It's ALWAYS longer than I think.ReplyDelete
Have a very happy Thanksgiving and I will see you soon!!!
Nice to hear that your car is back. always old is gold:)ReplyDelete
I've got so much to do today, but I'm listing them and taking deep deep breaths. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
