All this reminded me of why I stopped using this shop for auto repairs, unfortunately my regular mechanic is undergoing treatment for leukemia and isn't always available and he didn't want to take on the repair because my car the transmission has to be removed to get to the engine, long story short about a 10 hour job. The current shop where the work is being done has one mechanic the owner and 1 employee that doesn't do the repair job my car needed. Leaky oil pan, gaskets etc. a common problem apparently on the 2006 Cadillac. Well received a call last night the major work is done was just waiting on something for the oil filter and I should have it today, I am not optimistic and figure tomorrow, which will be two weeks, what I find irritating is he suspected such a long delay I would have like to know so I could have arrange to rent a car, the first week I didn't care because I was still not feeling 100%. grrrrrr! That's how August began here.
On the up side I feel better, no more fever, nausea gone after a nasty stomach ache all last weekend. And for the most part the cough is gone. House hunting is underway and we found two that have the space we need, both still in Ocala. This week we had to Orlando area to look at a few. Though we get more house for our dollars here so that will be a determining factor.
The one house that we are considering has the size I need, a lovely entrance with wrought iron gates which I love and this a little perk in the guise of a pool.
The Granny afghan I crocheted for Tessa I finished last night so I will be starting another crochet project today

I'll plan to go back today to see if the yarn is still on the shelf, it sells out fast and the baby yarn is new. So while the month began rough and rocky it's turning out pretty good.
Now on to books this week I am reading A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan, I don't know about you but I tend to have themes, the repeated patterns, that keep coming up in my reading for me it's witches. I just love witches who wave wands, I love witches who brew potions, I love witches who heal well you get it. What is your repeated theme in books you read. I am linking this post here https://www.gsheller.com/2018/08/yarn-along-august.html for the August yarn along, click the link to see what other bloggers are reading and knitting or crocheting this month.
