On the up side, at least it didn't break while driving/on the freeway etc...
So, they couldn't find anything wrong with it. They drove it a couple times today and it was fine. Great. So now I just get to hope it was a fluke and doesn't happen again and leave me somewhere! I hate car problems!!!!
Oh and I looked up the bluebook value to see what we could get for it and it's gone down $1900 in the last 18 months! Isn't that crazy?! So now it's only worth about $3200. Ugh cars....

So I got to thinkin, hey, we have a bread machine...somewhere...So George and I braved the 'crawlspace/storage' area to find it. After many, many, many cobwebs, we found it in a box in the middle of the pile of stuff, of course. To make it more fun, there is no manual. So the google seach began, and I was able to find the website for the brand/maker and they provide a pdf copy of the manual (for all the different models) and a supplemental booklet/pdf of recipes, Yay!
So I made oatmeal bread yesterday. It was very yummy. I think there is a little left, but not much. Today I'm making 'Old Fashioned White Bread' we'll see....I don't think I would be making bread if I had to do it all by hand, but it's fun to dump everything in the machine and press start, and wahla! Bread!
The garden is really producing now. We've had some funky weather here this summer, not the best for growing veggies. But now the sun is out and the temp has been really nice, and the plants are happy. It's still strange that the tomatoes are mostly green and it's September, we are really hoping the weather holds long enough for most of them to turn color, or what a waste that will be! I think Mom counted the plants and we have about 85, and 13 different varieties.
This is an example of what is in a 'share' box, this is actually a half share, need a reminder about the veggie share stuff? Look at Creative Outlet Nursery and Farms
Here's some boxes of stuff waiting to go to the farmers market tomorrow
Isn't he cute? :)
Oh and we bought my car back today.... $1343

It turned out to be something with the differential/transmission breaking...yeah....did you hear that cha-ching sound?
for about $1300.
Bad thing since that's a lot of money for us, seeing as how I'm unemployed and all. But it would have been a real hassle if George had to drive me to and from work so ehh, life goes on. As my Dad would say, maintenance is just part of the privilege of owning a car!
