“Car is ok…but…it needs to be taken for a drive…”

dscn1219The chief inspector says to me…”the car is ok, but you need to take it for a drive.”  WHAT!!???

Then he asked if there has been some work done recently, battery or something else…then I thought…that bloody engine light is not done with me yet!!!!!  It seems that when the mechanic reset the fuse or whatever else is what he did, the car needs to reset itself.  What do I know!!

Well…did you notice the lousy job I did with my bangs?  Yep, trying to save some dinero, I took my sewing scissors and got creative.  Now I have to face the hairstylist and fork out some hefty dinero to get it all fixed.  Why is my life so complicated?  Maybe my car does not like my new bangs look.   I must admit, it was not a good idea, but when I was doing it, I thought I was going to look smashing.  Smashing all right!  I should run against a wall to create something with my forehead and bangs to camouflage the screwed up job I did.  Oh well…it’s just my hair…just noticed, need to color it too.

What was I talking about?  The car!  Yes, the car, my black beauty!  So thinking that I am trying to become a minimalist and budgetista, that was not a good thing to tell me I need to drive the car for at least a 100 miles and go back to the bearded man from Appalachian country.  He was very nice though…

Meaning, if I drive that much, some stores are going to be on the way…and…today I bought nothing…but…I saw my credit card shaking inside my purse.  It is a bit nervous about being used for clothes…minimalism versus consumerisim…the bet is on!

I do need a pair of comfortable black slacks…putting it out there…

Hugs, Abrazos…

 

Dare me not….

dscn1156Someone dared me recently to see if I would  post a picture on Facebook without any makeup, or any adornments.  Well, that one was not a difficult one to do…after 150+ photo shoots, here’s the result.  I made it sepia tone, and voila, I like it a lot.

Not only I am a good writer, well…kind of a writer with a so-so writer label, but I am a good photographer.  Need good lightning, hair in a good mood, and time to just be myself.  No nap today, because after talking with the IRS, I was all wired up.

I needed something fun to do.  This was the 151 picture…thanks God I appear to be acceptable to this ever so critical of myself person.  English Grammar Police, anyone?

It is amazing what an innocent dare and a motivation to distract myself other than thinking about 1040s can do.

All continues to be good in Happyville!

Hugs, Abrazos,
