The sun is shining this morning but it is pretty breezy and cool. After chores hubbie went to the neighborhood barber shop while I had breakfast and decided which car dealers we would go to today.
We first stopped at the Nissan dealership in Asheville  where I drove a 2013 Pathfinder. It drove nicely and only had 47,000 miles on it but I wanted to drive a Buick Enclave and they didn't have one of those. We then drove over to Skyland auto group to drive a 2011 Enclave that only had 34,000 miles on it.   The prices of both vehicles was the same but I really liked the Enclave and so did hubbie. It felt more like driving a luxury car than an SUV. The salesman wanted me to make them an offer but I didn't like the black color, it makes the inside heat up so much quicker and would make it harder to make any stops with my cakes in there in hot weather.
So I didn't buy anything today.
We picked up chicken feed and fertilizer on the the way home at Southern States and made it home around 3:30. Not to bad for a day of car shopping.
I got my laundry started and did 3 loads before evening chore time came around. The temperature didn't get out of the mid 60's today and with the breeze it was pretty uncomfortable outside.
I took this pic of the first of my Iris to bloom this year.

I spent some time sitting out in the sunroom watching the birds at my re-filled feeders this evening. I also looked around on the internet for more Enclaves.
I baked a couple coconut cakes for an order to be delivered tomorrow .

Update  on yesterday's disasters is not good as the death toll in the Nepal earthquake has doubled to more than 4000 recovered bodies today and the weather has been so bad again today in Alabama that the efforts to find the missing sailers from yesterday's storm have been unsuccessful.  There was more bad storms all across the southern states today once again with baseball size hail in places.
Very thankful tonight for all the day's safe travel and praying for guidance in all my upcoming decisions,also still praying for the people of Nepal and Alabama that they may find comfort in Jesus Christ at this time.
Good Night and God Bless.

i know what you mean about a black car. Now maybe if I lived in Alaska a black car would be nice. But here in the lower 48 I prefer a light color. Don't need my car heating up while I'm running the A/C on the inside to cool down. Praying for all those affected by the disasters. Blessings
