Stuff stuff stuff

Such a lot of bother and waste all because someone didn't take the time to familiarize himself with the vehicle he was driving that day.

I get a rental car while mine is being repaired but can't get it until Monday because I don't live in the city. I pleaded with the body shop to find a way to fix the car instead of totaling it. Because I won't go into debt, a replacement would be limited by the value set by the insurance company and whatever I could add from my savings account...not likely to be something as comfortable as my 12 year old Audi! When asked if I minded used parts I assured them that I PREFERRED used parts (reuse and recycle!).

So, it looks like I get to keep my darling old car. Yay!

The weather has been so cold that all the local schools cancelled classes today. I was tempted not to take the garbage out this morning, but figured since I had to go out and do chores anyway...

I did put up a heating lamp in the coop. When the eggs are freezing, the chickens need the extra heat source. Something is keeping them going. Sixteen eggs today.

Glad to hear that at least your car will be repaired . . . rather than totaled. Such a waste when vehicles are dumped because of (relatively) so little damage. Do we live in a throw-away society? Yep, I do believe we do.

We're having trouble getting eggs before they freeze solid and crack, too. Not getting close to the number a day you do, but it's still hard to collect them often enough.

Just read about your accident. Your visit to my blog prompted me to catch up with you. A collision with a bus mist have been scary and it could have been so much worse,
