こんばんは。How’s it going?

Today’s weather was a huge change from yesterday – a 40° F drop from 84° to the 40s! How crazy is that? So, we spent most of the day indoors staying warm. As you can see from the first photo, Yuzu is keeping me company on my desk as I blog away. 😺

However, I did make a short trip to the store to buy some margarita fixings. Tequila, Cointreau, and limes were in order, and I also picked up some whiskey. Gotta stock up just in case, right? On the way back home I filled up the tank and was pleasantly surprised that I set a record for my fuel efficiency:

My Subaru Crosstrek has about 5,500 miles on it and the MPG is getting a little better after its break-in period. The car has a built-in fuel calculator, but it’s usually about 3 MPG on the optimistic side, which is normal across most cars, so to get an accurate measurement, I’ve been using Fuelly to keep track of how much gas I put into the car and the mileage. I also enter in how much the cost is per gallon so I can get the total amount I’ve spent on fuel over the life of the car. It’s very interesting (to me) and it makes me more mindful of trying to drive more efficiently. The Crosstrek has a real-time gauge to show the efficiency so I can kind of adjust how heavy my foot is on the gas pedal as I drive. 😄 My Subaru isn’t nearly as efficient as our Prius, but the ~30 MPG average is much better than the 19 MPG I was getting with the Honda Odyssey. I’m happy about that!

All Intensive Purposes

So, another thing I finally realized… it’s “All intents and purposes”, not “All intensive purposes”. Only took me 49 years to figure that out. Never stop learning, I guess? 😛

Anyway, here’s a snapshot of a sleeping kitty.
