Improving my outlook on life

The temperature was fifty-five degrees today and someone got a wild hair and decided to wash the vehicles.  Including mine!  First of all, it isn't much like him to wash a vehicle at all- and I believe this is the first time he has EVER washed mine.  I think spring fever hit him.

 It was difficult for me not to try to tell him how to do it.  I managed to keep my mouth shut. 
My Honda is an '03, but she still cleans up very nicely.  It has been so nasty weather-wise with snow and ice and freezing temperatures that my car had not been washed in months.   I cleaned the interior- vacuuming and cleaning the windows on the inside.  Whoever thought of putting black velvet-like interior in a car never dreamed of having a Corgi riding shotgun.  If she is in my car one time- even if I put a towel or sheet in beforehand, there is hair everywhere.  And how do the windows get dirty on the inside when I haven't had the windows down, there are no children with fingerprints, usually it is just me.  I love it when my car windows are clean and the sun shines in. 
Afterward we took Chelsea out to the trail (in his truck- not my just cleaned car) and we walked five miles.  We ran into two other Corgis on the trail!  We've seen them before but not for a long time.  Interesting how some Corgis look so different.  They had one tri-color like Chelsea but she was so fluffy and had such long hair.  I can't imagine.  Chelsea's coat is bad enough.  Has the spring shed started?  I think so. 
So between washing my car and cleaning the windows and taking a nice long walk in the sunshine, my outlook on life greatly improved today.  I hope you had a sunny day, too!

It really was an incredible day yesterday, wasn't it? I grabbed my senior coffee, and hit the $5 car wash next door to McD's. Then, all three dogs, (2 corgis and MIL's Golden) went to the high school fields for a good romp. They all arced like porpoises in the snow, the Golden slide sideways making snow angels. What fun for all...I was doubled over laughing watching them. Then, I came home and moved furniture in the small bedroom/craft room. 'Twas a grand day lassie.

Hey Cheryl, Such a sweet "other-half" to wash your car. I don't know if I could agree with 55 degrees being warm . . just a tad cold for me still. You walk five miles . . good girl! Happy Sweets Day! Sandy:O)

Honda's a great car especially when it's shiny. We could use some heat here,

I have a Honda too - they are nice cars and do clean up nicely. Glad you had a great day to do it.

If Chelsea is already shedding than Spring is closer than we think! I sure hope so! I haven't noticed Jazz shedding yet. It's a tell tail sign around here. Once Jazz starts shedding her Winter coat than Spring is here!

Have a Great Day!
