AEDM day 8

Day 8 ...was an exhausting day! I give you this gorgeous sunset though.

The day started out fine enough, we were going to go to Sioux falls a 2 hour drive each way to load up on the dog food we would need for the winter.
Then we decided to break the day into half and just go to Mitchell for the groceries and then Sioux fall the next day for the dog food.

First, since we were headed out we would take the car scheduled for a repair job onto the mechanic and have that delivery done...
simple enough task huh.

On my way out the road (a dirt road) something was buried in the dirt my tire struck it and I had a hole punched in the tire...changed it and motored onto the mechanic,
then went and ordered the tire..yes it requires a new tire!

Then we motor onto Mitchell, decide we feel good enough to tackle Sioux falls let get it out of the way...
it was 8:30 before we got home!!

a LONG day and trips like this just wear me out...so i didn't get any further in my painting...
but
the doggies have their food and the pantry isn't so bare for us either
and new shoes for the car...arrive weds.

i hope the day went well for you!

oooh, noo! i hope you didn't jinx yourself by talking about those dirt roads with me the other day. well, at least all is better now. doggies will be happy for a while. can't believe you have to drive 2 hours (one way?) to get them food. that must be expensive in gas, eh?

Had a good laugh at the car getting new shoes. I thought of the old song or maybe it was a saying about baby needs shoes. Long days of shopping wear me out, too. Of course, if I go with friends, it's more standing without a purpose than shopping. Glad you got stocked up for the winter. That sunset was well worth it, I think.
