This isn’t my Honda Civic, but one just like it — mine just got out of the shop tonight. I’ve been without it for almost 2 weeks and I thought I was going to go into withdrawal I’d been without it for so long. I am really not comfortable driving my husband’s truck. It’s big, high off the ground so I have to absolutely pull myself up into it, and it makes me feel very small and vulnerable. I love my Honda — my little “Silver Bullet”. Happiness is.
We’ve been having trouble with our water softener. Besides the fact that we’ve had it for nine years and it’s never been serviced (which we discovered should be done on a yearly basis), there’s apparently a crack in one of the valves so the part has to be ordered. It works (I think) but it leaks water. The guy was here for close to 3 hours working on it and couldn’t get it fixed. He’ll see if he has a part to fit it in his shop and if not, he’ll have to order it. When it comes in, he’ll be back. He only charged me for one service call, which was nice considering the amount of time he spent working at trying to fix the unit.
I didn’t get much sewing done today, but have all of my stay-stitching done on another apron and I gave the water softener guy one of the crayon rolls. He said he has 10 kids — from 26 years down to 5 years so I figured he’d score some points with the 5 year old if he brought him a neat little holder for crayons.
We have a full house this weekend — well, almost full. Our niece is here and our eldest son is still with us. Everyone has gone to bed but me — naturally. It’s like being the first one up in the morning — you have the house all to yourself and it’s quiet. There’s a peace that is so soothing…
But I have a big day ahead of me tomorrow. I’m going to drive to Bakersfield and pick up my Bernina sewing machine. The shop called yesterday to say that it was all ready to go. The only thing wrong with it was the bulb was the wrong kind. It takes a BERNINA bulb and nothing but a Bernina bulb will do. I thought I had bought a Bernina bulb when I ordered one online. Guess not. He replaced the one in the machine and exchanged the one that I had bought and they’re only charging me for the one bulb. Nice people! And, they’re having a grand opening tomorrow with all sorts of prize drawings. Should be fun. Who knows? I might win a new sewing machine!! Whoo hoooo! 😉
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Know that you are loved, even when you feel you aren’t lovable. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them, each and every day.
