As Good As… Gently Used!

Today I washed and waxed my car.  This is an event, and quite blog-worthy, because this task hasn’t  been performed in much longer than I really care to admit.  Once upon a time, it used to get done much  more frequently, but since I moved out of my parents’ house a couple of years ago and no longer have a driveway to work in it’s become kind of a chore.   Stella (that’s my car) was a dirty girl!

Since it was such a gorgeous day and I didn’t have anything that I absolutely had to get done…  and because my car was really becoming something of an eyesore, I decided that today was the day to do it!  I got up bright and early, (as I often do)  and well, then I did nothing for several hours… and then, then  I drove off to my parents house and went to work!

When the weather’s as nice as it’s been today (76 degrees and sunny right now), it’s actually really a joy to just  be outside and do anything  – even if it is hard work.  And  this was hard work – and disguting –   lots of dirt, bird poop, pollen, and dead bugs (YUCK!) , but now she’s beautiful!

After a couple of hours of hard work, my six year old car looks no older than five!
