Didn't have to get a new car. It was the serpentine belt and the pulley that had gone bad. Easy fix and not expensive. I got lucky, because financially I'm not quite ready for a car payment yet and the insurance premium that would go with it. YAY!
Here are a few more pics I took out on my walk yesterday.
Wild flowers blooming.
Desert daisies or marigolds. They grow wild around here.
