Thirteen Things I did after work on Wednesday

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

  • Read and responded to my email; read and commented on some blog posts
  • Went to the bank, picked Lyd up from her soccer game, and did a little grocery shopping
  • Played Scrabulous for quite a while on Facebook (TWICE!), and tended my Lil Green Patch, too (virtual gardening). Why is that so relaxing?
  • DIDN’T go for a walk. My excuses: It’s too rainy, and I’m still sick. Achoo!
  • Emptied and refilled the dishwasher
  • Warmed up a delicious chowder I prepared yesterday for our dinner tonight
  • Talked with our oldest son on the phone. He went to pay for a used Dacor convection oven for us. Rick found it for sale on Craig’s List, close to where our son lives. We’ll need to pick it up soon, so I can bake homemade bread again; we really miss it.
  • Washed three loads of laundry, and did some folding
  • Chatted online with our daughter who lives clear across the country
  • Drank coffee; ate an ice cream cone
  • Did a short blog post, asking for stylin’ advice
  • Wrote an email to the high school counselor about one daughter’s schedule for next year
  • Enjoyed a time of Bible reading and prayer this evening with the family

WANTED: New Hairstyle

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

Once the weather gets just a bit warmer, I’ll be wearing my hair up all the time. For some reason I get very annoyed by all the hair around my face when “sweaty” weather arrives. My husband suggested that perhaps I might like a different, shorter hairstyle instead.

What do you think? Do any of you have some suggestions for a new hairdo that you think might be pretty and practical? Here you see the current ‘do:

The hair is naturally wavy, not curly. I’m kinda tired of a perm, anyhow. So, send me links to good ideas, or describe what you have in mind for a change of pace over here. Thanks. 🙂
