New Car!

Interested in a field trip to Stratford? I recently attended the launch of the Stratford Festival's 2007 season--the playbill looks excellent. Find the full story at Mommy Blogs Toronto. Mommy Blogs Toronto will officially re-launch at the end of the month--be sure to check back!

We all slept until 8:00 on this rainy morning (unheard of around here). Pure heaven.

Yesterday was a pretty good day here in T.O. I took advantage of the weather to do some work on the garden: I pulled all the annuals and planted 75 bulbs. I had a good time out there, until I bashed my head on this:

We picked up our new car! The 2007 Honda Civic LX:

They gave us $50 for the old one.

It handles so well, especially compared to our old piece of crap. I love the smell of the car--it inspires me to keep it clean and tidy. Cakes has already been told, no more cheerios in the car.

Gotta go, Cakes and I are goin' cruisin'.


I just realized, I posted the wrong picture--ours is the 4-door. Anyway, you get the idea.

Congrats on the new car! It's funny, 'cause when I saw the picture I thought, "Wow, a two-door with a kid?" Glad you got the 4-door though.

And is it me or is Peter getting REALLY annoying on Amazing Race? I still like Sarah though.

That had to leave a mark - OUCH! I hit my head on the freezer door the other day while putting away groceries and there is a bad bruise that feel when I pull up my ponytail.

Anyhoo - WHOOO HOO on the new car. A very sweet choice I must say.

P.S. By next summer sometime, I may well be living in St. Mary's, which is just a 15-minute drive down the highway from Stratford. How about a matinee followed by BBQ at my house sometime next July or August?

Nice car!!! We have the two door version and it's a great, although now Joe drives that car because it is hard to get Samantha into the back seat with a two door one! But you will love this car!!!
Maybe a glass of wine will help forget about the bump, wink wink!

It was so dark this morning, that I could barely drag my butt out of bed.

Your garden is going to be beautiful this spring!

Congrats on the new car! Hondas are great.

New car smell! I love the smell of chemicals. They should bottle it up, I would make my house smell like it if I could.

Ow! Glad to hear your head is OK.

I went to the Stratford Festival with my class in 8th grade (grew up a few hours from there in central New York.) It was an amazing experience -- I do hope to get back someday.
