Happy Valentine's Day!!!
We don't celebrate it, meaning we don't exchange chocolates, cards, gifts or go out for dinner because of the day. I don't believe it is because we have no spirit.
We just don't need a day on the calendar as an excuse to do nice things for each other. If it happens to land on an "official", then extra cool. Otherwise, we don't worry about it.
I've been a bit of bad girl lately. I'll get to that later.
First of all, a monumentus discovery at home -- We finally figured out our dishwasher! For the last year, we had resigned ourselves to not using it much because it just takes too long.
The results are better than any other dishwasher I've seen or used but 3 hrs is too long. That's on regular cycle. So, I've been sulking since then because I spent a lot of money on it. It is a KitchenAid.
Reading the manual is usually a good idea and we decided to try the "quick clean" cycle to see what the results would be. It wasn't described as suitable for much outside of getting some drinking glasses clean but you never know?
To our surprise, it got our whole load of dishes clean in less time than it takes me to take a bath. So we are back on the dishwasher bandwagon and I am just ecstatic!
None of the other places we own have dishwashers so I'm taking advantage of having one here.
As to the "bad girl" part, I went to check out vehicles at a Porsche and Audi dealership...
I sat in a couple of Porsches (Panamera and Cayenne Turbo) and they kinda scared/intimidated me. They can paint/make a car in my favourite colour. All I have to do is give them a swatch.
Isn't that crazy? What is also in the crazy category is the price. The used Cayenne Turbo cost $88000.
I was quite taken with the Audi Q5 but so is everyone else. There is a 3 -4 month wait on one. I wasn't too impressed with the drive. I expected more fun out of something that is built from an A4 platform.
What it lacks is partially made up by the rest of the package. I've wanted an Bang and Olufsen stereo system ever since I was a teenager. And that panoramic roof with a built in noise screen? To die for...
