Theme Song Thursday:) Car Wash

8 Mar

“You can tell a lot about a person by how neat and clean they keep the interior and exterior of their car. Uh oh! I’m in big trouble.”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


I’ll admit it, I’m not a car person. A car is just a mode of transporation to get you from here to there. I haul a lot of stuff in it, so I like a big SUV type car. Going to the car wash and cleaning the interior is also not a big priority. But, the other day, I had trouble recognizing my car in the dark parking lot. My burgundy car looked sort of black from all the dust and dirt.

Seeing how it is Lent, and I’m trying to improve myself, I decided to stop at the car wash on the way home. After Zumba and 7.5 miles on the bike at the Y , I headed for the car wash. Dang, I missed my turn and was ready to forget the project, but decided to double back and get in line. It was a beautiful day after frigid temps last week, so I wasn’t the only one with that bright idea.

I cranked up the radio and sang along. When I was done, I pulled into one of the many busy bays that had the vacuums. I spent nearly an hour vacuuming front, sides and rear carpets, and tossing tons of garbage, flyers, water bottles and five year old mystery mess. What an accomplishment. The car looks so clean and tidy. I may do this again next year.

Oh yes, when I got out of my car to clean it, look what was there on the ground waiting for me. A lucky penny.

Wednesday:) What Do You See?

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” ― Confucius


“I see beauty in so many everyday things. Look closely and you’ll see it too.”

I crank up the music and enjoy the colors, and the movement, and the beauty. I love the drive-through car wash. What do you see? 


Saturday:Salsa Car Wash With a Side of Sunset

6 Sep

It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.
— Bern Williams*************

Busy day today. I got up early to go for an hour run/walk before the Texas sun started scorching the day. Then, a quick change before going to Zumba, and an hour of wiggle-giggle salsa/bali/country dancing. Nice way to start a day. 

I met my friend Gilda for a leisurely lunch at Taqueria Hernandez. Then, she was kind enough to take me on a driving tour of the east side of McKinney. 

Driving home around 6 pm, I decided to see if the car wash was still open. It was! Yay! My car was filthy, and God has not blessed us with a Mother Nature car wash in over two months. 

I like to crank up my music then record the drive through car wash. 

The evening sunsets have been glorious, so off I went for a short walk. 

 “It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.” I like to daydream.  Look at this sky!
