Vroom Vroom!

I picked up my new car tonight! I haven't drove manual in at least 2 years so I spent an hour driving around.

Stop. Go. Stop. Go.

I am happy to report that I didn't even stall it once! Now, I just have master rush hour traffic.

^^ my favorite part is the red callipers on the wheels.

A busy busy bee...

We have been crazy busy. We went to visit my parents at the farm, training for the half marathon (we are at 16 km now on our long Sunday runs), I was in a car accident ( I am good, the car is not so good) and it's almost Easter.

Two weeks ago, a lady ran a stop sign, went through two lanes of traffic and broadsided me on the driver's side. It happened so fast, I had no time to react. At the end of the whole thing, my car had smashed through a tree. Not a giant oak or anything but a substantial tree. Ha ha. I was sore from the airbags (and a little shaken up) but all in all, I am OK. The car was a total write off so that is unfortunate. I had just paid it off and a set of brand new all-season tires are sitting on my deck. I guess the main thing is, I am OK and the car can be replaced.

I spent the better part of last week, cheering myself up, by test driving some new ones. I test drove the new Honda Accord coupe, the new Mazda3 Sport and the Ford Focus ST. My favorite is the Focus ST! Its the cutest little sporty car and I am getting it in sexy black. I am so excited, I pick it up tomorrow!!!!

I am still puttering away on the Mom & Me quilt. I am quilting the border right now and hopefully I can start the binding by the end of the weekend.

Here are some photos from the farm:
