So I took it in to get fixed and it needed a new alternator. $500 later, I thought my problems were solved. No such luck. There was still something not right because two sensor weren't firing right. I was told to drive the car for a while and start it in the morning when it was cold a few times.
I drove the car for 200 miles over the past week and it is still misfiring one of the sensors. The repair shop called and said that I can get the car smogged with the one sensor not working because of the age of the car. Hopefully tomorrow I will have the time to get it in and try it out myself!

I took pictures of all of the caps, but now cannot find the cord for my camera to download them all to the computer. It has to be here somewhere, but when I don't use something daily, it has a tendency to fall into the couch, or under the couch or get put in a safe place to be found sometime next year.
If you have yarn and some time, this is a great project that could use your help.

I'm not sure how this happens, but my dogs have figured out how to tell time. Every morning around 5am, they start to bark to wake me up. Not bark, bark, bark, like someone is at the door, but one little bark, then wait 2 minutes and then another little bark. They are telling me that it is time to get up for work. But what they can't figure out is that there are weekends and vacation days where I don't really need to get up at 5am. Then, we all come downstairs and I sit on the couch and watch the news, check my email and eat breakfast and they all go back to sleep. They just want to make sure the day starts right. They could easily come sleep on the couch by themselves, but for whatever reason, it just isn't as comfortable unless they all pile on top of each other and one of them at least has to be touching me to make it all work. I'm not sure who is protecting who here.
My quilting machine is broken still and I have nothing to show in that area, but I am still alive and kicking and have much to be thankful for!
It looks like the drought here in Northern California is about to be over. At least at my house. We are having lots of rain and I need to find someone to fix the gutter above my front door. The gutter is clean, but the downspout has been clogged for years and when it rains really hard, the water pours over and right in front of the door. I went into the garage looking for some stuffing for a doll I'm working on and the garage was flooding. The water was coming in through the wall and into the garage. Time to move some stuff and get things off the floor. Luckily it only rained hard for about 15 minutes.
