As usual, today's thankful things are simple things:
- Thankful for nourishment, for milk delivery. -- I found that with our milk delivery, I get better dates on our milk containers. That makes me happy. Hubby is a HUGE milk drinker. I go for the cottage cheese. (our delivery is three 1/2 gallons of 1% milk, 1 quart of chocolate milk, 1 small container of cottage cheese, and a dozen eggs -- every two weeks).
- Thankful for the sisterhood of quilting. -- This morning I went to a small group discussion on "modern" quilting. Mainly we just show and tell resources for inspiration and show off our work. It's nice to be able to share in a "safe" environment.
- Thankful for clean clothes and the tools to keep them clean. -- I've been listening to a series of Amish-themed short stories this week. One of my audio books. That got me to thinking that I really have it easy doing laundry. Load. Push a Button. Done. Glad I don't have to do all that washing and drying stuff by hand!
It turned out that they found a couple of small issues with my car, so we'll be picking it up today. I'm hacked off at our previous car dealer that did some work on it. The new folks said the old guys put the wrong fluid in my transfer case, so we had to get that flushed out. That old dealer just sealed the "bad business deal" with me. They can keep the rest of their oil change package. (We've had other issues with them).
What I don't get is that the old guys were a dealer. They should know that stuff!!!!!
The new dealer impressed me at the car intake process. they run it like the BMW dealer I used to use in TN (Back when I drove the bimmer). Very clean, professional, and none of this "wink and gun condescending talk stuff to women. When hubby came to talk to these folks, he was intirduced to both the service intake guy and the shop boss. That's the way to do things!
So today I get my car, all sparkly and new... No granddog hair, no cootie crumbs leftover from when the kids had it, and no Washington sand. LOL! It will officially be all mine! brand spanking new!
So we'll call the car stuff a bonus thankful thing for today. What are your three thankful things?
