Three Things Thursday

Happy Thursday all!


Another hot day here in Ottawa-land. The heat is supposed to break this weekend. At least I am in a nice A/C’d building for a majority of the day. Otherwise I would be boiling! Alrighty – Three Things Thursday time:


Things #1 – NEW (to us…) CAR

We decided on a car this morning after seeing a few private sale people and going to a couple of dealerships. We bought a 2010 Ford Fusion this afternoon. It was a pretty big toss up between a 2009 Honda Civic and the Fusion for a day. We found the two cars Tuesday night and tossed and turned in the decision process until this morning. The Civic was a nice lil sporty vehicle, but have double the amount of KM’s and was smaller than the Fusion. The Fusion’s previous owner was an old man who lived at a retirement home. The car was in sparkling condition and had only 41,000KM on it. So after P negotiated on the price, the car was ours. We are picking it up tomorrow after work – yay! The only con to the Fusion is the colour – it is “champagne” or a really light beige colour. Not exactly my choice – but whatever, I would rather have a working car!

Here is a picture


Thing #2 – New Gmail?!?

The newest version of Gmail was loaded on all my accounts this afternoon. The new version uses a tab function that sorts your mail for you. Personally I like my own sorting process and do not need Google to do it for me. So therefore I turned it off. The tab names were pretty stupid anyways. First they get rid of Google Reader and now this? Come on Google….

Thing #3 – Run last night

Last night was a Twlight Meet with the local track and field club that occurs every Wednesday night. Just before 8pm, I noticed that we had a break in between the sprinting events, so I decided to go on a quick 3K run. I ran in the Mooney’s Bay area and a bit on Riverside Drive. The heat had finally given away a bit so it was a nice run. Great views too!  I ran a fairly steady run (not too sure on splits as I was running with my iPhone, not the Garmin) running 3K in 17:23ish minutes. 3K was about my limit last night, as at 3K I did not feel so hot (I did only plan on running 3K though).

    Yay for the new car! I have a Ford and love it. Way to go on getting a car from a retired person. Miles (or KMs) are definitely low! I agree about the color. I do not like light-colored cars, but a good deal is a good deal. I hope it lasts you a long time.
    I hate the new gmail system. I agree about sorting my own mail. I need to figure out how to turn it off! Beautiful view on your run last night 🙂

      Click on the (+) sign by those stupid tabs and uncheck them all – and goodbye they will go!

      At last the car isn’t too beige 🙂 *Almost* looks silver!

    Congrats on the new car! I rarely check my mail on anything except my iphone or ipad so I didn’t even know gmail changed it’s format!

      Usually when I’m at my computer I have Gmail on all the time – so I noticed very quickly, especially when I couldn’t find some emails right away


    I almost complained about the new Gmail in my blog tonight! Grrr…
    Your car is just perfect! I’m happy for you 🙂

    Congrats on the car! That’s the car my older brother has 🙂 It’s so nice! I drive a 2010 Ford Focus and I love it.

      Thanks! 🙂

      It was either Ford or Honda for us – we really liked the Fiesta, but after renting it once – it isn’t practical for families (too small for carseats)
