Today, I was able to get the van in and finally get the front brakes done. We've got quite a bit of driving to do at the end of the month, so I'm glad to be able to do it now, instead of in the middle of all that. It has been a few days … Continue reading Brakes are done!
Yesterday was our day to do our monthly shop, which always makes for a long day. We actually decided not to do a full shop, though, and will go back later in the month. Specifically, we didn't get all the cat kibble and litter we usually do. It gets really hard to pack the van … Continue reading Long Day
We got some things done over the last couple of days, but I'm not quite sure there has been progress on some of them! 😀 Yesterday afternoon, I too, my mother's car in to the garage to get the differential flushed. I dropped the car off earlier than my appointment, then went out to a … Continue reading A few things done
What a beautiful day today! As I write this, we're at -1C (30F) right now. The sun is shining, the skies are clear, and we're supposed to be warm like this for the next couple of days. On Sunday, we're even supposed to go above freezing! From the long range forecasts, we are going to … Continue reading This and that, and the car saga continues
First up, I just wanted to share one of the photos I managed to get yesterday evening. The two bucks I saw in the trail cam finally came by when we were there to see them, and get photos! Still too dark to use the DSLR on its tripod, with the lens I have on … Continue reading Spiky guests, and not quite done with the car thing…
Today, I will be driving my mom's car around for the first time since it's been repaired. When I had the chance to take a look at the tires in the sunlight, I found a pleasant surprise. The rear brakes were replaced, and this is what it looked like before. All four wheels looked like … Continue reading A pleasant surprise
Oh, finally! My mom's car is DONE! Also, as I didn't have to go anywhere early in the morning, it was actually daylight when I started my rounds, and I could get some photos. I always start with bringing fresh water to the cats, and topping up their food bowls. Beep Beep was, of course, … Continue reading Done!
What a difference! I recently wrote about the garage confirming that our van needed a new bearing on my right front tire. On scheduling when to come back to get it fixed, I asked about being able to drive to the city on it, and he assured me it would be fine. So on Friday, … Continue reading One down, one to go
Today, I took our van in again to get that noise checked. Thankfully, I was able to also tell the garage to go ahead and fix my mother's car; she will pay for it. He still hadn't had time to look for the wheels my brother wanted it to be switched to at the time, … Continue reading One step at a time
The last couple of days have been... trying. But also beautiful. We warmed up enough for the trees to be covered in frost that is still there. Then we got a gentle snowfall. Today was bright and sunny, the trees looked like picture postcards, and everything was sparkling. It all looked quite lovely. The girls … Continue reading Some good things, some pretty things, some WTF? vehicle things
