Friday Question: Do You See My New Car?

The mower hit a rock (thanks to pups that love to dig holes). So we took the mower to get fixed and on the ride home, we stopped into the car dealer and Tim bought me a new car.

I swear, that's how it happened. 

Zero interest for the life of the loan (66 months), they pay the first three months worth of payments AND, they took my old clunker. Which I was able to drive there, but then once we got it on site, it died for good.

Perfect timing.

I can't even believe this week. It's been a whirlwind. We've never had a new car, ever. Only clunkers. We drive it and can't believe it's ours. Do you know cars come with automatic windows? And brakes that works? I did not.

Between the new car, new Breville, organic nuts shipped here to make nut butters, I've had a week-long rash, and I didn't even eat dairy. Just the way it is now.  But that's okay, this boiled lobster look is starting to grow on me.

And now, onto Friday's Question: Which car is ours?

    1. I am not a fan of the new car smell, but I'm funny with smells. However, I do love the new car feel.

      How goes your blended Dezzy drinks?

  5. Strange I'm excited and you are the one getting the newbies... but really did wonder woman really need a car?

    I can't see your car in the pics, there is a bright new blue car hiding the view!

  6. Did you thank the dog for digging the hole? You might not have gone to get your new car if he didn't do that. ;0) Nice new wheels!

    1. That's okay, I always have a base coat of a rash anyway these days. But at least it's better.

    1. The best part is how much safer it feels.

      Not sure, I think Betty. Or Blue Betty. ALLLL of my cars prior were all named Barney, as in Barney Rubble. But this one, feels more like a Betty.

  10. Ooooh...I already know what the answer is because I got a sneak preview. And anyway, it's pretty obvious, no? Love it! And it'll go well with your boiled lobster look. Good contrast :)

  11. How exciting! I have never had a new car either but right now I refuse to give up my Toyota Corolla. 220 km!
    Love the colour! You could name the car Beryl which is another name for blue.

    1. I had my last clunker for a long time, his name was Barney and he held on for a good long while. But was no longer safe.

  14. How wonderful and what a good idea. Yes, never owned a new car either and in fact my wife and I drive aroundin one old Ford Taurus. This car will be very economical for you! :)

  16. Well I assume it is the blue one in front because you will look great with your red rash driving a blue car for 4th of July.

    cheers, parsnip
