It's been a very dry snow free winter - and I will not lie, I have been enjoying that because it makes driving so much easier, even though I do have an SUV that will get through just about anything. I just don't love driving that much. I do it because it's a necessity. I'm not as bad as my mom who won't even drive on the freeway if she can help it. She just hasn't had to do it much in her life, so it's understandable that she'd be apprehensive about it. But anyway, this is about me, not her. I mentioned awhile back that my car is in need of some repairs. I set up to take it in this morning before work.
It's an auto mechanic that was recommended by a good friend as my former auto mechanic (my father-in-law) retired and I was looking for a good place with people I could trust. The only problem is the mechanic was the opposite direction of my work, but I figured, I'll leave a little early, drive my car over, get my loaner vehicle and head to work, because the roads have been so wonderful so it should be no big deal right?
Wrong, because guess what? It's not dry and unsnowy anymore. It snowed something like four inches overnight of lovely wet heavy snow. I knew when I went to bed that it was going to snow a little bit. I wasn't expecting THIS much though! Karma you are a little brat sometimes aren't you?
Fortunately I got myself moving pretty fast at home and taking some nice back roads got myself to the mechanic in pretty good time AND somehow got to work at a reasonable time as well! I did have to kind of make do with attempting my pictures for today at work - but considering my tripod is at home, I think these actually turned out pretty good!
I do love this shirt and I haven't worn it enough. I still have so many ideas of ways I could style it too, especially because of all the colors that are in it! At least it should go into the spring!
Let's hope ole Karma is a bit more kind to me when I find out the estimated cost to fix the problems with my car. Cross your fingers. In the meantime I'll have fun driving a cute little car around town, even if it isn't as snow friendly as my little SUV!
