I'm sorry to disappoint any horse lovers reading this, but my "Black Beauty" is not a horse! It's the name we affectionately refer to when we are speaking of my car...a 2004 Mazda 3 Sport (that we drove 5 hours to see and pick up last year)!
Since we were leaving to go out of town, I wasn't planning on posting anything today, but I decided to do this at the last minute. Last night, as I was coming out of my mom's house (next door) where we left Joy while we went out for dinner...I pulled my camera out of my purse and snapped some pictures (my spur-of-the-moment-just-in-case camera) because I wanted to share something with you!
Jason has a "thing" about our car being clean before he takes me out (on a date) or before we go on a trip. Honestly, it wouldn't really matter to me if it was dusty or dirty at all, but it's important to him! It must be a "man thing". As a matter of fact, it's Friday a.m. now and we were supposed to leave over an hour ago, and he's out there rinsing it off again...as well as Colt's car! So I grabbed a minute to do this post! :)
I got to thinking though...I can't say too much...I have a "thing" about leaving my house "somewhat" picked up and tidy when we leave to go out of town. Now that doesn't always happen, but it makes me happy to return home to a picked up clean house. At 11:00 last night, I was vacuuming and picking up around the house....So are we normal...do any of you do these things?
I've learned to just appreciate a nice clean car (even though we're bound to hit the gravel roads!) and just compliment and thank Jason for washing the car because it IS important to him and besides....it really does look sharp when it's so shiny and sparkly!
So we're off this morning in Black Beauty....our CLEAN Black Beauty....to the Ozark foothills (and for some of you that thought this was a romantic getaway for the two of us....we're taking Joy too!) :) Colt has to stay home and work! Hopefully, I'll get a chance to post from where we're going!
I've also been either having trouble with Blogger or my computer in leaving comments...losing connection after I've typed a comment, so if you haven't "seen" me on your blog lately...I'm trying to get there! Maybe I can get "high-speed" internet this weekend and catch up! I hope to "see" you soon!
I hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks also for all of you that left the sweet anniversary wishes and kind comments! :)
