New Wheels

Thursday, June 25, 2009
Car shopping is done, we bought a Kia Spectra. The price was right, the warranty was good, and it had the options I wanted. Our car is very similar, the color is "spicy red".
Remember when I bought a washer on the city wide rummage sale for $50? Lucky I did, as my upstairs washer had a pulley and a belt go out! So I'm waiting for parts, but at least I can still wash clothes. We've had over 2" of rain this week so far, and more thunderstorms forecast.

No sewing this week, I'm having bad withdrawal pains. I did sort through a bit more stash. I also worked on the mailings for my Nebraska mailbox, expect them out either this weekend or next Monday.

Your new car is very cute. Looks like it has plenty of room for your sewing machine and fabric. ;0) Enjoy!

I know several who have Kia's, they like them! Happy for you! Now you can buzz all over the state, maybe even make it to NE, one of these days!! Rain here too, hot with high humidity! Not much quilting going on here either.

Good for you! Looks like a great set of wheels!

Summer slowdown for sewing for you, too?! :)

Love the color!! Of course, you'll have to drive carefully now, because cops' eyes are really drawn to red cars!

Then again, maybe someone will actually see you and NOT slam into the back of you!

We bought a used Kia Spectra last August for our son to drive. His model is a 2007. He loves it. It's a great car. I rode with him this morning to church. His car is blue :) Enjoy your new wheels!
