Wednesday Wrap-up

The appropriate title should probably be Random Wednesday but Wrap-up looks better.

I haven't had much time this summer to work on projects. Although, to be honest I am usually far more interested in being outside during the summer so few inside projects get done anyway. BUT I did manage to crochet this Centennial Loop Rug. It is made with a brown and a blue, brown strip yarn. I originally thought I would make it for my bedroom. The one I will have when I move into my own place again. Instead, I gave it to my Mom for her bedroom.

Last week, I did this to my car by over-correcting and hitting a guard rail. No injuries. No other cars. No police repors. Just a little bad luck.

The damage is much worse than it looks. I called the collision repair shop today and the repair costs are just over $3,100 which is just a few hundred dollars less than what I paid for the car. Luckily, I opted for full coverage on the insurance. Unfortunately, I have a $500 deductible but it is better than paying the full cost of the repairs.

After picking my son up from school today we drove around looking for houses/duplexes for rent. We saw a couple but I only called on one. I left the man a message, and told him I didn't have the exact address because it was covered up. He called back and left me a curt message telling me to have the address when I call back. I didn't like his tone so I won't be calling him back. He can keep his stinking duplex.

Fall is here. I love the crispness in the air, the warm days, and cool nights...BUT I am restless. I am not sure why. Just antsy and feeling like I need to get out. Perhaps a drive in the canyon when the leaves really start changing color will help. For now, I have been taking Grandma for walks in her wheelchair. Anyone know how many calories are burned when pushing a wheelchair?

I can't help with the calorie count but I can tell you the fall color has just started. I just needed to get out too this weekend so we went up to Mirror Lake. If you haven't been to the Upper Provo Falls, you'll definitely want to head there for your next Adventure Day (before it gets too cold!)

So sorry to hear about your car but I'm glad you are safe and not hurt. I'm loving that rug you made, Can you teach me to crochet? Good luck finding a place to rent, that guy was a jerk!

Crap about the car!! Hate that! I just hit a curb when I was fussing around with my water. Thought I could keep it hidden since I didn't see any damage, but sure enough Splenda noticed that very night the scrath to the hubcaps.

I really shouldn't be trusted with nice things : )

I took up crocheting two years ago when The Boy started basketball and my friend was pregnant. Then I found out she was having twins and I ran out of steam. This year will be his third season and I'm still working on the same dang blanket!
