Where are we today ?Today started with a wonderful moonset, kinda like a sunset but the moon was setting outside our dinette window to the west. Gonna be a nice day, I think.
So a trip to town and putter around waiting the hear about our car. At noon we headed into New Hamburg have a few things to do. Passed by Hillcrest motors and our car was just pulled out of the shop. So there ya go, we stopped and picked it up . Oh, but had to pay the bill first. The problem was the passloc sensor, (security), ignition cylinder, housing, labor, tax and towing total $598.00. Towing was discounted to $75.00. Really not too bad considering we have never had any real repairs on this vehicle in 11 years. Just tires, 1 brake job, and one battery with about 250,000 kms (155,000 miles). Now working good again, we happy! I dropped Suzie at her Mom and Dads' (fix the computer) while I picked up a few groceries in town.
Then a trip to Stratford (the scene of the crime, were the car broke down). Exchange some clothes I bought the other day. Can't believe that extra large does not fit me it was skin tight! So refunds and got xxlarge shirts and way too big!!! Not sure how these are sized but I usually can wear, med, large or xtra large, never a xxlarge before. Guess depends on the country they are made in.
Now while we were in the store in Stratford it snowed! Could not even see across the street for ten minutes. Then suddenly it stopped, we headed out and no snow on the ground just lotsa water, good thing it was pretty mild.
OK back home put our stuff away and peel some potatoes for supper, whip up a tossed salad and frozen veggies to add the the roast beef that Sandy popped on the oven.
While we are doing this the skies get dark, wind picked up and we are getting hail!
