New Addition

Psst, remember to come back tomorrow to join us in the Bead Soup Blog party.

Big news in Chase land this week. We have a new addition:

Greg finally decided to sell his 1971 VW Bus. Sad, I know, but she’d been hanging out in the back of the house ever since we moved here four years ago. It was only used when we needed a bigger car to haul something or when my car, the Altima, had to go in for service. Not too great for a car to just be sitting around.

Last year, we put a total of one tank of gas in her. She ran perfectly fine. But with no air-conditioning and no reason to take her out, she was becoming a lawn ornament. Now she has a new home in sunny California and is getting a make over. The buyer said he’d send us pics when she is finished. I sure hope so.

Anyway, we had been thinking we’d get a truck to make it easier to haul stuff, or Greg wanted to get me a Jeep to use for shows. However, all the Jeeps we found were less than desirable and Greg didn’t want to get a truck that would just sit out in the back collecting pecans from the tree back there.

It appears the Suburban is the ultimate compromise. The funniest part is my sister also drives an Altima and has a Suburban. I’m pretty sure she’s convinced whatever car she gets next will eventually end up in my driveway.

TheĀ  beasts are pretty happy about it.

They went a little crazy when we got home yesterday. Little dog syndrome? :) I don’t know, but Puck wouldn’t stop barking at it. It was pretty dang funny. Puck is the white and black one.

Favorite Things Monday-er Tuesday

Mondays are always super busy and for that reason alone, I usually find myself with the dreaded Monday blues. So, over the weekend I decided I’d have Mondays be Favorite Things day on the blog. You know. A place to talk about things that make me warm and fuzzy or squeal with glee.

Of course, I found myself swamped yesterday with stuff and I didn’t get the post written. (Please. I’m not organized enough to do my posts in advance and that would defeat the purpose of Favorite Things Monday anyway. The whole point is to takeĀ  a few moments to focus on something that makes me smile). Obviously I failed at my first cheerful Monday post.

That means I have two things for Tuesday. Or three really.

First up: My boys. Little balls of energy and kisses.

Someone should really gives these scrubs a haircut.

Next up. The finished manuscript. My editor sent the word file back while I was at Bead and Button. Last night I finished my edits and revisions. I’ll be doing one more read through, then it’s off for a final copy edit on the changes I made. Holy Crap. Almost there!
