I took a very long, very contemplative hike/run/walk along the trails by my new apartment. It was a beautiful day and I had to stop several times to snap pictures. Too bad I didn’t have my big camera with me, but the old iPhone captured some cool images.

Anyone who has seen my car in the past 5 months knows that it’s been held together with tape.  My side skirt started to come apart and after a few days was dragging on the ground.  The dealership said it would cost $350 to replace it.  Ugh!  So, instead of fixing it, I taped it.  And then the heat made the tape slip.  So I re-taped it.  A couple times.  And the sticky tape residue made a huge mess along the majority of the passenger side.

A friend fixed it today with just $3.00 in supplies from Home Depot.  And cleaned off all the tape gunk.  It looks beautiful and I have a rejuvenated interest in my auto.

Check it out!  Sparkly!
