Wheels and Wings!

Life has been very busy, thus the blogging has been well sparse.

I've given my old car to my Nephew, I'm now officially the best Aunt ever!

First of all, my car the "Blue Bomber" as it has been fondly called has been acting up a little bit... nothing serious but it was time for a change...



Yesterday I picked up my BRAND NEW 2012 Kia Rio 5!!!  I am so in love with my new car.  Isn't it cute???  I have new fangled things like Bluetooth, I can hook up my iPhone to the stereo, power windows, power locks, and keyless remote entry, air conditioning and oh the luxury... heated seats!!! 


Its a shame that I didn't have it a little sooner... because tomorrow I'm taking off for the Dominican Republic where yet again I'm taking a group of grade 11&12 students on a 3rd World Experience... this year 16 of them!  I'm just about packed!  I'll be back in a week.


Oh and here's a poor picture of my Eggie which has seen much love lately!  Sadly I ran out of purple silk, but its been ordered and I hope it'll be waiting for me when I get home!

See you soon!

Hi Dani,
Congrats with your new car! It looks great.
I've read your stories about the Dominican Republic last year and I'm sure it will be quite an experience for your students (and you). Be safe!
Still love your eggie! Must begin on mine (I think that every time I see your progress ;-).
Kind greetings,
Ann

Love the progress on Enchanted Winter ... and I look forward to a finish photo before to very long. Isn't it wonderful but bittersweet when you near the end of a complex and beloved project. II can't help but wonder what will be next. You always choose such interesting projects. I am still trying to figure out Accolade! I suppose I could google it but that feels like cheating. I'd rather watch it develop.

Love the new car! Enjoy your trip. But you have some stiff competition for the title of 'Best Aunt Fever's.... my nieces and nephew tell me I'm the best Aunt Ever too. ;-)

Love the eggie, you are nearly finished! I am doing it as well, just a question though - are you doing the 1 over 1 with 1 strand or 2?

I hope you are having a great trip.
Lucky young man who got your old car. I think he'll enjoy your old car as much as you are enjoying your new one.
This new word verification is a pain. I'll try it a second time to identify the letters that show. Hopefully this time it works.

Shelleen said...

cute car. Have a safe and fun trip. Love that egg.

CJ in OK ;-) said...

Oh I love the new car congrats on the upgrade. I splurged a year ago and felt the same way with all the power everything I had never had.
The eggie is amazing even unfinished. You can look forward to the finish when you get back. Stitching probably isn't happening with 16 teenagers for a week. Stay safe, CJ in OK ;-)
