The Not Very Complicated Woman's Daybook


I am thinking: If I was younger I'd have my hair chalked.  
Outside my window - some little thing is chewing up my Joe Pye Weed leaves.....

In the kitchen- there is sunscreen on the counter and there is an OFF personal Fan. 

I am Wearing- my hew hairdo.  My new stylist colored it just about perfectly yesterday. 
The base is ash and the highlights are blonde!

I am creating - this post.....I told you it wasn't going to be complicated! 

I am going- to get the car emissions tested.
It isn't too thrilling either!!

I am wondering-how long it will take Beatles to fall for Pie. Tank already has fallen for her. 

I am reading-up on how to integrate the kitten into the household. 

I am hoping-the coolfront comes in early today and we can enjoy the windows being open and the porch tonight

I am looking forward to- today!  plain and simple with whatever it holds for me

I am hearing- the hum of the floor fan in the kitchen.  

Around the house-the cats are conserving their energy in the  heat

Quote for the day: from Erma Bombeck

• Giving birth is little more than a set of muscular contractions granting passage of a child. Then the mother is born.
Good luck to all the new mom's out there today.

I love this quote, good pick. I am reading blogs instead of doing paperwork. I am working on the Clapo-Ktus shawl and loving it. I am waiting to go to the Doctor's later for a sinus infection. And last but not least I am taking it easy today, a bit too easy, but easy.
Hugs to you and Hooray about your hair.
Hugs,
Meredith

Doesn't it feel wonderful when you LOVE your hair?

I just found a new stylist. He works miracles with my mess of cowlicks!

I was talking to a woman about your age this morning. She had a purple strand of hair falling below her left ear. It was a little distracting but very pretty.

I wonder if the little thing that is eating your Joe Pye Weed plant is the same type of little thing that is eating my Bok Choy.

Enjoy the perfect hair!! May we see?

Good quote!!

Yeah, where's the photo? Ha. Isn't it great when you feel good about the way your hairdresser gets it right!! I also enjoy hearing about little Pie.

Thanks for the info about chalking! I didn't know what those unusual colors were called. Glad you like your "new" hair, too. How about a photo? Have a good weekend.

Wow, that's a rather spectacular hair photo. I think you should go rainbow next time around.

Hooray for the cool front - can't get here soon enough for us! We want to open our windows too. :)

Nancy said...

I'm hoping for the cold front, too. Heck, I would accept a not so hot front because I am melting in my house. My floor and ceiling fans are whirring so loud, I can't carry on a conversation.

Love it!!! So where is the post of the perfect hair??? I do love the chalked hair though, it might be something that my daughter AND my son would love!!!

Great quote! Being a mom is not just giving birth.
