I've got the Zac Brown Band playing on Youtube while I play online tonight. This was the first time I thought of streaming music when I work on the computer. Usually I'm watching TV, but if I want music, I bring my phone up and play one of the discs I have loaded into my music app. This is nicer - new music!

Kewl. I play Pandora a lot when I'm doing stuff on the computer, and when I'm doing stuff around the house. I have a small Bluetooth speaker that I connect to my phone so I can listen to podcasts or music.

I like Pandora too, and usually have it on for background music when I'm on the computer. I like how you can choose up your own playlists and shuffle them. Listening to Carole King's "Tapestry" right now.

DH went grocery shopping after tennising. I got a call, he'd locked his keys in the car. No problem, I'd just deliver his spare key. Problem, the spare key was not in the usual spot. I tore the house apart, but it was nowhere to be found. He called a couple locksmiths, no answer, apparently they don't work on the weekends. Thankfully he has a friend who works with the sheriff's dept., called him, and was able to finally get into his car. Disaster avoided!

Don't you have AAA? Glad there was a happy ending.

:Slaps forehead: Duh! Didn't even think of AAA!

Our sheriff friend borrowed the door opening thingy from the same business that AAA sends out. DH probably got quicker service that way.

Update: I found the spare key in my backpack, from our last trip. I put it there in case my purse got stolen, but didn't put it back on the rack DH is not going to let this die...

Glad you found your spare key, Dawg. It's sure handy to have a few copies around.

Nice 'cool' morning here - 70F right now but supposed to get up to 85F today, so I've been working in the yard before it gets hot. Got my tomato seedlings planted in larger container pots, fertilized, and set on the sunniest part of the patio. I've got a 6'x6' area in the front yard that gets good sun so I pulled the lavender out that isn't doing very well and fixin' to scatter some assorted wildflower seeds in there. Hopefully they'll do well.

There's a bunch of fallen pinecones in the front yard, but I think I'll get Tyler to gather those up for me this afternoon. He likes to help.

Trimmed the vining vinca against the side of the house in the backyard - it's been sending out long leggy vines where I don't necessarily want them, but it's also blooming nicely. Hoping to start seeing some ladybugs soon, they love that plant.

Fixed another cuppa coffee and now it's back to work outside.

Dropped my car off at the dealer. I've been having a dead battery problem. The local garage gave it a "thorough check-up" and assured me everything was fine. A couple of days later it failed to start again. So now I'm calling in the pros.

Fortunately, we have SO's car. I have had chauffeuring duties recently as she won't be driving on her own for a while.

You've been such a busy bee, Cheryl! Someone has to sit around and do nothing in order to maintain a balance in the world, so I've been holding down that job today.

We'll be out to vote later today, on our way to the car dealer. You may have seen an earlier post of mine referring to my car, "Sally", getting a recall notice. Well lucky, lucky me - Sally IS one of the Sonatas that has metal particles that were left behind in the engine. *sigh* I'll be without my car for a while - could be until next week, might even be for a month. At least my car with 50,000 miles will have a brand new "heart". No matter how long it takes, I will be getting a loaner car for free. Normally, the car they loan you is similar to the car you own. Somehow, I was able to sweet-talk the parts guy into getting the service adviser into loaning me one of their SUV vehicles to I can check out in case I would like to get one when I eventually replace Sally. Right now it would be the bigger Santa Fe. If I'm really lucky, the smaller Tucson will be back in stock by the time we get there and I'll get that one. As much fun as I like driving my Sonata, I really do miss the height factor and the cargo room my old Dodge Grand Caravans gave me. Hoping the Tucson is in-between. It would be perfect.

Rut roh I've been sitting around a lot today, too. I hope someone else has been busy so that balance continues to be maintained

Enjoy your slick, tall ride! I my Ford Escape Hybrid.
