woke up very early and was able to enjoy the sunrise… 

  
caught this out the upstairs window…

took this picture of the car as I was heading out this afternoon…

  
you can see the sun shining on the hood… there is very little snow on the ground and it was plus 4 as I drove away…

then I headed to Birchwood Toyota… signed lots of papers… sorry trees…

  
took a walk in the amazing warm weather… what a treat we have been enjoying…

got a new licence plate…

  
and drove away in my new Corolla…

  
her name is Shadow… she is blue crush metallic in colour and if she is in the shade, she looks kind of purple

got a call just over a week ago from my car dealer wanting my vehicle… ended up with the 2016 model at thirty dollars less a month… pretty good deal…

after picking her up I ran a few errands and started getting used to her… heating system is a bit fancier and the big splurge was a car starter… not really sure I need that as the car is usually in the garage, but when I’m out it will be nice to start warming up before I get in…

felt a bit sad to leave the old car behind, as I’d only had it for two years, and it was the first car I got on my own

as I was driving home I thought back to the first new car I drove off the lot…

it was forty-eight years ago and I drove a beautiful Chevelle home that day… I had bought it together with my dad… can remember the fear that I would drive into something or another car would drive into me… didn’t want to get the first scratch on it…

drove that car for over eleven great years…

another big girl pants kind of day… but it was more excitement than anything else today:-)…
