It's a bird; it's plane; it's an Impreza!

Okay, it is not every day that a girl gets a new car, a 'stylin' one at that. So, here I sit writing this up for you as I sip on some bubbly Perrier and nibble some chips as a celebration. Not a one of my friends is home, as it is an unusually sunny and warm day. They are probably all out with their families hiking.
I decided to begin looking for a 4-wheel drive car that Jay can get into and out of more easily. He test drove with me this morning all three cars in our town that met with my criteria. What was shocking to me was that he wanted me to get the more expensive one, and conservative as he is, it was a good choice. Neither of us had a single check in our spirits about it at all. I'm SO excited. Jay let me go back this afternoon to do the dickering while he went out to the ranch for a fence-building project with Stephen.
Below, you will see all the views possible of my 2007 Subaru Impreza. It is silver and has a 'spoiler', a huge trunk, plenty of leg room, automatic everything and even a radio that I can get hooked up to satellite... if I'm so inclined.
Oh, my, I can hardly wait to go to Lewiston for the big test drive on Tuesday to get my hair cut.
I'd had my Toyota for over 10 years. It was a '98 and still in very good condition, so I feel like a traitor to have gone over to the 'other' side with a Subaru.
I'd had Hondas and Nissans and Toyotas in my adult car life. Once I even had a Nash Rambler Station wagon that didn't have reverse in it.
The trade-in value for that car was a spare tire on the new one!

So, what do you think? Isn't she Pretty??????
And she has a sunroof.

Wow! Catherine, I'm sooooo happy for you! It's amazing and very cool! You needed this with all the traveling you do.

Good job, Jay for spoiling your wife to pieces!

Love you!

Your new car is adorable, and it will make you look very "young", I'm sure!

Are you busy in the garden yet? I am on a marathon push to get all my plants and seeds in the ground, along with enriching the soil in several beds, so lots of digging! Praise God, I am able to work again!
