A New Car!

Good morning, it is Saturday.

Yesterday was quite a busy day. Lillie dressed up as a rock star...we tried to do fancy stuff with her hair, but in the end she liked her new haircut so much she just wanted it to be normal. She added shades, fancy dress-tights-shoes-jacket combo, and plenty of bling to complete the rock star ensamble. Hansen just was himself, I am sure he and his friends had plenty of rock star jokes about themselves just the way they are.

The staff at my school played the student's all-star volleyball team yesterday to the delight of most of the student body. We were extremely handicapped this year as we were not allowed to serve overhand or spike the ball. We could only bump and set...bye bye advantage. We lost to both the boys and the girls team. Without handicaps, we would have creamed them and maybe caused injury at the same time, so it is all good.

In the evening I went to check out a car I had noticed online for Maren at one of the more local dealerships. While Maren is not a big fan of automotive change, I really felt it was time. She had been driving a 2002 Hyundai Accent with nearly 120,000 miles and plenty of quirks. She now has a Certified Used 2010 Hyundai Elantra. The new car is pretty darn slick if you ask me. No more roll up windows for Maren! And she even has a little clicker thing to unlock the doors, not to mention all the modern airbags and traction control/anti-lock brakes and such. Beyond all that cool stuff it has build in XMraido, which Maren is a huge fan of and had in the old Hyundai but as an add on kit.
Here is her new car! Just what she wanted. A used car for a good price that doesn't stand out but should be a good car for a long time.

This morning was a solar eclipse. I wandered out to see if there was anything left to see this morning, but we have zero view from our house. We can only see cold and trees:
The view from the back of the house is only trees and cold!

Off to a busy day!

See you tomorrow.

Congratulations Maren - a new car.
That's always exciting, especially with all the neat stuff. Enjoy it.
Love to see Lillie with all of her rock star get up.

What a busy gang!!!

Losing to both the boys and the girls teams struck me as hilarious, but as you say, no injuries so that is good.

Congratulations Maren on the very slick, cool new car ! I love it ! Looks like the perfect size to zip around in, very sleek…..

"not a big fan of automotive change"………lol…………I don't like that Google is 'changing its look".....a different car + the mind reels ! but no more roll up windows for Maren plus XM radio" is a very good thing……plus the 'clicker thing' is very 21st century......
