This was a day we were doing a bunch of running around grabbing parts for my car, the waterline and the furnace. Whew, what a week it was - my car's temp gage started spiking and blowing cold air (and being a Ford those temp gages NEVER move) so at first I added more coolant and when that didn't work, we gogglefu-ed it and learned it was either a leak in a hose or the thermostat itself. (There were worse options but go with the simplest thing first) Ev ended up replacing my hoses and the thermostat, in -25F and fixed my power steering hose that'd decided to spring a leak, he is a seriously amazing and awesome badass! He also has replaced most of the parts on our furnace, fixed a split pipe under the house and hauled up the water pump and fixed the wiring on it - I just unclogged a ice chunk in the line. He's a pretty awesome dude and as I joke, well on his way to Sourdough status! In the past three years we've been able to keep from taking our cars into the shops and doing the work ourselves - we've saved thousands of dollars so far doing so and I have got to tell you, Goggle is the most amazing tool ever when it comes to problems. Even I can fix stuff with it and am usually pretty spot on with diagnostics!

Anyways, about the outfit. Lots of layers and lots of black although I tried to throw some blue in there. I like my outwear to "go" but not necessarily being matchy-matchy. I do this by buying everything in a black/blue/white or black/red/cream color way and even if they are not the same patter, there's enough similar-ness that they all work together. I've talked about these mittens before but man, they are awesome and keep my hands warm even on -35F morning when I'm poring fuel into the tank.
