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!
