::home:: for the weekend

::unexpected::
the honda stopped working this weekend. luckily, we were planning on staying close to home
and the george is a pretty bike-friendly place.
so... we biked to the hawaiian restaurant, we biked to the movie theater (Robin Hood - way better than I'd expected),
and we biked to the grocery store.
{{did i mention we sold our montero ONE WEEK AGO?}}
husband spent a lot of time trying to figure out the problem with the car (which he correctly diagnosed!)
and i spent a lot of time reading The Constant Gardener (I'm so hooked - I'm loving it).
____________
by Monday morning, we'd discovered the car would drive if we held the key in a particular place
so we drove it up to our friendly neighborhood mechanic near our workplace-
I spent the night with husband and the dogs out at the work cabin in the field,
and Tuesday by 5 pm, the honda was fixed. for a mere $151 dollars.
{{can you believe how great that honda is??? and she is getting incredibly close to the big 250!}}
