Victoria Long weekend for us is now over, sniff. I didn't get any flower beds or my garden going because we had heavy rain and wind the whole weekend. The evening's were ok, but that left a lot of wet ground to work with.This week is nothing but hot sun right until sunday!!! So I'll be working each night on the plants and the garden. We had some friends come over on Sunday night for a fire at the pit and we did salmon burgers, potato salad, ceaser salad,garlic bread. It was kind of a spontanious thing that turned out a lot of fun!!! I have been having a lot of problems with my car key. Whats the problem???...Well, the tumblers in the ignition have loosened and I can't get my key to catch so I can start my car!!!! Poor Neil had to come down twice to the grocery store and rescue me and try to start it for me. One guy thought I was perhaps in the wrong car!!! No, I said, my key isn't working properly,....moron...lol !!! So it looks like I have to get a new ignition thing...starter...something or other. I get so frusterated because I have to jiggle the key a certain way until it catches and then the car starts. This time, it's taking me up to 20 minutes to try to get it going. That's when I called Neil.Yesterday, he took me home in the truck with my groceries, and then we went back down so he could try to get the key to work. After about 1/2 hour of me trying, and then about 10 more minutes of him trying, the car finally decided to give up the fight and it started. So now I don't shut the car off totally. I turn the key back so it's one click away from taking out the key. Unfortunately, I have to leave the key in the ignition for me to start it now. So all doors are locked, and his key stays in the ignition at all times. This week we will have to get a new ignition key thing...as mentioned above, lol!!! Hope you all have a wonderful week this week. Much love and sunshine sent your way....

we had a white van like that once upon a time...

Only I would have to hit the starter and start the van at the same time!!! Was not fun, in the middle of traffic. Sometimes it would take 20 min. LOL

We have all had cars like that at some point, ours is an old jeep renegade thats as old as we are and has attitude big time. I drove it when I was preg with Jonah lol, no windows or doors and funnily enought it went on fire (electrical) with me in it too at the GAS STATION no less, Lord did my life flash before my eyes. I just told the kids to get out and run like hell and popped the hood to diconnect the battery, picture my floor mats starting to smoulder by now too and then allof a sudden the battery was disconnected and I was run at with about 5 fire extinguishers. Needless to say I bust out crying after the action faze had ended. Pump 7 I will never forget it lol. It has been rewired now. and I now have a good car thank goodness.

Getting the ignition replaced can be costly, but might be the way to go. Nothing worse that being stranded somewhere, unable to start the car.
Good luck.
Hope you have a great week.
Take care, Meow
