The edits on Marks of Repentance are going well. I'm currently at about 60K (of 95) and still enjoying myself. I'm also about half done the full novel crit I'm doing for Mar.

Blogger has being a nasty baby again lately. Or maybe it's Picasa and Hello that are not my friends. I've had a couple other photos I wanted to upload and it just won't happen.

For instance, I planned to show you all a photo of our *new* car, a 1996 Volkswagen Passat. Hubby is very happy with his new wheels! It has a lot of kilometers on it but we paid a decent price even so. More to the point, it is a diesel and gets about 65 mpg. It has about all the bells and whistles one could want as well, from the sunroof to the heated seats. I've only driven the car a total of about ten minutes yet myself but I'll get lots of opportunity next week when we drive out to Vancouver Island to visit our kids and take them camping in Pacific Rim National Park. We'll be gone six days, but you won't even miss me because I've been such a bad, bad blogger lately. Sigh.

In other news, I have a zillion photos to scan this evening (yay for thunderstorms and power outtages yesterday evening to complicate my life...) for a special Father's Day powerpoint presentation for church on Sunday. I truly hope to get it done tonight because we need time to check it at the church. Sometimes it looks a lot different on the big screen than it does on my monitor and needs adjusting...and being as every page will have a new photo (dozens if not hundreds...if not zillions), the adjusting, if necessary, could take awhile to do. Eeeep. Where do I get these ideas from? Keeping my fingers crossed that I can do it all justice.

As soon as it's off to the church (by cd, as the files will be too huge to send via dial-up email) I need to start gathering the gear for our camping trip. Promise I'll check back in before then!

Congrats all the way around. You've been busy, and you found a great deal on a car that matches your needs pretty darn well.

I can't even post so you're doing better than I am. Sniff. I thought it was my connection. Have fun with the new car!
