Well, we spent the weekend in Maine and we "weathered" the storm on Saturday - pardon the pun! Noel was off the coast so we didn't get the full brunt like the Cape did, but we had quite a bit of rain and wind and the waves were pretty spectacular. If I can figure it out, I took some pictures with my cell phone and I will post them on my blog in the next couple of days. We watched the waves break on the shore and we also drove up to Nubble Light and watched the waves and the spray break over the rocks. It was wonderful to watch. There were even surfers out there on both Saturday and Sunday. Sunday was beautiful - Sunny and bright - not a cloud in the sky.
Unfortunately I spent way too much money, but it was good therapy. While shopping, I was on my own; Lisa didn't go, so I went solo. I met up with Sheila and Dennis and Nick for lunch. I did get some Christmas shopping done as well - which was the primary reason for the shopping. When I got home, it took me SEVERAL trips from the car to the house to bring everything in. Once insides, I had to sort among, for me, for Christmas, for me! I did manage to sneak in a nap and some lunch before watching the Patriots play the Colts. It was a close game but we came out victorious! Boston is on a roll.
Your mom talked about car fixin' day. I had to do the same on Friday. Not sure what the problem is, but something is leaking a little. The mechanic said he tightened up the oil pan and checked the antifreeze and oil. I was down a little of each so he filled them up. Guess it's time I seriously start looking for a new car. I want something that gets good mileage but that sits a little higher off the ground. I'm going to look at a new Camry and possibly a Rav4. I don't want a huge SUV; I just don't want my butt dragging on the ground while I'm driving. On the other hand, I don't want it too high or I won't be able to get in and out without a step stool! (I heard that David!) I HATE looking for cars.
