To catch you up on the car repairs, I did take it in on Thursday. Once again they told me they have no idea why it is idling so roughly. Nothing shows up on their scan. Whatever happened to the good old mechanic who looked? SIGH!!! They did find that two of my tires were bad, car was very badly out of alignment, and all four brakes were bad. So I drove it home with $665 dollars worth of repairs (thanks to my sister for kicking in some as I drive her everywhere) and it is still idling bad. That would be a bah humbug, so let's get on to the Ho! Ho! Ho!
Here is a bit more of my Christmas decor.
Some toys under my toy tree.
They seem happy! I think they are waiting for Santa.
Looking down the living room. That is a red and white quilt that my grandmother made, covering my sister's antique drop leaf table that sits behind the sofa. The brass lamps are mine. I bought them almost 40 years ago as a new bride. I stuck them in my car when I was in North Carolina in September.
I love the toy tree. I can't help but smile when I look at it.
The next time the sun comes out I will try to get some photos of the other end of the living room and also of my little white Christmas corner.
Thanks for all of the well wishes on the car. I am still praying and meditating on the idling problem and thinking positively that the money will come in this week so that I can take it to another mechanic.
I have started selling on Ebay again along with my Etsy shop. I hate that they take so much out of each sale, but it's a bit of added money coming in. I sell there under the name Gossamer Memories.
I am getting excited about going to Atlanta. My grandchildren and I are counting down the days until I get there. Okay, they are probably counting down the days until Santa gets there, but I am definitely counting the days until I see them.
