Thank You and My New Toy

With the Fourth of July holiday on Wednesday, the week kinda slipped by me.

Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to write the fiction book earlier this week. I'd written one of the stories years ago and have the outline prepared for another. Once everything is finalized on my next book, maybe I will dive into those stories.

Actually, I've been a little distracted this week. I bought a new toy! (And paid cash.) After racking up over 163,000 miles on my little Tribute in just seven years, it was time for a new ride. Monday night I came home with a 2012 Hyundai Sante Fe Limited, fully loaded with sunroof, heated seats, and Infinity stereo system. And she is sweet!




Yes, ever since my Dodge pickup, I've developed a thing for red cars. Ironically, since the magnet on the back of my Tribute permanently adhered itself to the metal, someone will now be advertising for me:


Everyone have a good weekend!

Great new toy, Diane!

Really cute. I plan to go to a crossover when I enter fewer days of soccer mom + kid's stuff. So in like a decade.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Love it. Trying to make my current ride last one more year and then I'm down-sizing.

Woo woo! Very nice new toy. Enjoy.

I know it's wrong to covet but I'm so jealous. Enjoy your new toy.

Wonderful! I love new cars, and we haven't had one for a very long time.
Enjoy.

Thank you, everyone. Sorry I was offline for most of yesterday but I'll visit everyone today.

Sweet! And I like the advertisement for your Web site. Enjoy your new toy!

Congrats on the gorgeous new car! Woohoo!
And I think that whether you write fic or non-fic, it doesn't matter as long as you're writing and happy. :-)

Congrats! Nice ride!

I love heated seats! It's a must. My Honda minivan just broke 100,000, but I'm hoping it will make 200,000, or I better start selling a ton of books. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Cool ride! And kudos on the free advertising :)

Martha said...

Very nice ride! I have a little Hyundai Accent, it's a great little car and sure can't beat their warranty. Enjoy :)

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Wow! Neat car. We bought a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe recently and love it. It's our second Santa Fe.

Enjoy.

Leovi said...

I like that spectacular car, awesome.

Talli Roland said...

Ooh, gorgeous! I like red, too. :)

Hope you had a great weekend with your toy!

Susanne Drazic said...

Nice ride!

Maurice Mitchell said...

L. Daine, that is a sweet ride.

I also like the color that you chose. It actually looks good on the Hyundai Santa Fe. From a Mazda Tribute to the Hyundai Santa Fe – you must be an avid fan of SUVs, aren’t you? Haha. One advantage of the Santa Fe is the strong and efficient V6 engine. The fuel-efficiency of it is nearly the same as a four-cylinder engine, but with the added power and torque.
