Is it because I sold my niece into white slavery? Or perhaps because I toyed with the idea of trying to trick my 90 year old father into making more lazy susans for me to sell?
Whatever the reason I seem to be experiencing some negative karma.
Or perhaps Car-ma.
I took the trusty Fit to Honda for it’s checkup where it passed with flying colors!
Until a few weeks later whe it dumped all it’s oil out.
While it was being driven…..
Turns out the shop had failed to properly reinstall the plug.
So, that fixed I went on my merry way.
Then last week I had a show.
An outdoor show here in sunny southern California! Where the weather has been in the 80s and 90s.
It rained. Hard. All day.My friend Nicki who had lured poor, innocent, me into participating in this
waterworld charming market assured me that they had never had rain before so naturally, she felt the inclement weather was my fault. Surprisingly this made me like her more as it seemed like something I would say.
And finally, just before a big show this weekend, the faithful Fit fritzed. Again. I was driving when suddenly the DANGER WILL ROBINSON!! lights went on and it ceased to move forward. On a freeway. On Thanksgiving.
The cause is still unknown and she sits in the shop as I type.
On the flip side though I must be doing something right because I’m terribly lucky.
The first car failure happened after a show and this last one happened before I was on the road to the show.
And I’m supremely lucky to be surrounded by such good people. Cars were offered and borrowed, rides were given. Karla came and cut coasters out. The awesome Suzanne showed up (post rain storm- she’s not a fool) and helped pack up all my damp supplies. And people bought things despite the deluge.
And, all this not-running-around gave me time to work on a new Mod Podge Rocks project. I wanted to come up with a semi-permanent wreath using blown up version of some terrific vintage Christmas cards.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
Unique LA is next for me!
