Thanks ladies...I had a RAV4 before my Matrix, which I had for 10 years.

They are good vehicles, and it should serve me very well.

It has been raining most of the day today, starting with a thunderstorm in the night, which meant Lily came close and spent the rest of the night curled up next to me.

I bought a big bag of whole carrots the other day, in the interest of her teeth.

She likes them peeled.

Maggie

Maggie, great choice. The RAV4 is a solidly reliable vehicle. Great color, too. Enjoy.!

Lily might enjoy baby carrots. They come peeled already. Our little pack will do almost anything for a baby carrot or three!

Thank you.

She likes baby carrots, too, I just grabbed a bag of whole ones which I thought might take a bit longer to chew.

Hi Maggie!
I like the RAV4. They sit higher up & Toyotas are good cars. I too really like the color . Always exciting to get a car.

Hugs to you & Lily!

Jane

Congrats on the new car. I love that color! With the snows in your area, it should get you around safely. Fun and reliable and pretty....what more could you want? I hope you got a good price, as well.

Thanks, everyone....I can't wait to get it. Noon tomorrow.

I'll pick up the car and get a lesson on usage while Lily is at the vet.

The only add on I accepted was a discounted maintenance package for the exterior and interior. They will fix tears, stains, scratches, dents, dings, etc., smaller than a credit card for the next 8 years for about $9 a month...worth it, to me.

Jane, I knew that you in particular would love the color.

It is a good color for me....when I saw it, I felt it was meant to be.

Done a bit of shopping this morning, while I have sons car...there's a putanesca sauce I want to make, otherwise am going to work on cleaning up things in my freezer from past meals cooked ...tho I do have whole wheat banana bread in my oven.

It just sounded good to me, and I had these ripe bananas...

After that is out and cooling, going to run the Interstate out to storage and walk Lily back.

By then, I'll be ready to be done for the day...a glass of wine and my jammies will be calling to me.

Spring of 2017, and it feels like it's going to be a good year.

Maggie

Thank you....tho my excitement over the car is beginning to be overshadowed by having to leave Lily at the vet tomorrow.

I hate it.

But, I will deal with it, as the teeth cleaning is what's best for her.

Just change your thought process, how fortunate is Lily that you care enough and can afford to do this for her overall health so you can have more time together.🐾

I didn't sleep well last night , but am home now with the new car and Miss Lily, who I'm told tolerated the teeth cleaning well.

She has the dazed-and-confused, mouth-breather look of a living thing coming out of anesthesia, but is drinking water and doesn't seem too upset with me for doing this to her.

Damian at the Toyota place spent about an hour going over all the features of the car with me, and helped me get my phone connected to the Bluetooth.

Yikes. I can answer the phone from the steering wheel, and did so when my son called on the way home.

At WalMart early this morning, I was looking for something in the Clearance section...an area I just don't go to there...after being directed there by a young man in hardware...and came across these Pioneer Woman dishtowels.

The color is "Wild Roses".

Into my cart they went.

They will be lovely in my kitchen.

Maggie

A good day indeed, new car, hands free talking, fresh teeth, Lily doing well and rose covered towels. Glad all went well.
