I used to be able to set my clock and calendar by DD’s call. Promptly at 2 p.m. my time on Sunday afternoon, the phone would ring. Not any more. Not since That Boy came into her life. I must say he’s in the process of making a good impression on me. Anyone who treats my daughter as well as he does must be very nice. Someone on Facebook referred to him as “a keeper” when DD posted a picture of his Valentine’s Day gift to her—or part of it.
He had never done origami before but he made the arrangement and, as a finishing touch, he wrote one thing he loves about DD on each of the flowers. He also made her chocolate-dipped strawberries. One of these days, I’ll see if I can get permission to post the two of them together.
It was a nice day today and relatively warm. The car needed gas and one of the things I hate to do is fill it up in cold weather. I do miss the neighborhood gas station! I took a bath and got ready to go.
I wanted to get that dreaded deed out of the way so it was my first stop. The tank held over $30 worth and my mpg came in at just under 35.
Checking in at the beauty shop, I was told it would be 45 minutes at least before I could get a hair cut. I started gathering my purchases and when the time came, I went back to see if I could get in yet. I was told to have a seat so I picked up a style book and leafed through it. Nothing appealed to me.
The hairdresser finished up with one person and started in on a young man’s hair. I had plenty of time to look. There was a ragged picture that looked interesting. I pulled it out and AHHH!! that was it! I have a hard time getting across just how short I want my hair so when she came to get me, I showed her the style and told her that’s what I wanted. She warned me that it was cut with clippers in the back. That was fine. I wanted short.
She started cutting and cut and cut and cut. Even with all that, I think it’s a bit long on top. I may have to take some more off. I set the tripod up and took some pictures of ME. One of the forum members has been wanting to see a recent one so these should satisfy her.
I wanted it spiked but she had it kind of curving back.
I need to use some of that stuff to keep my scalp from shining through. This also shows my turkey neck as does the next one.
I had been so proud of myself price matching strawberries at Walmart. My cousin had left me a private message on Facebook this morning that they were headed this way and should be here around dark-thirty. The doorbell rang and when I opened the door, here’s what she was holding along with a bag of oranges and one of tangerines.
I don’t know what on earth I’m going to do with all of them. I ate one of the ones I bought and one of these. They’re all huge. I have instant clear jel so maybe I’ll make some freezer jam. I don’t know if I have enough jelly jars, though. I’ll have to see.
My Facebook friends have nothing on Twinkle and me. One posted a picture of a dog sitting in her place on the couch after she got up. When I went into the kitchen a while ago, here’s what I found when I got back:
Genese had posted a comment about her granddaughters’ faces when they tried the chocolate mousse and their experience at her mother’s house. Today, her daughter private messaged me:
We left the nursing home for Granny’s house and when we got there she gave the girls chocolate bars. Hershey’s DARK chocolate. They each took a bite made faces and one exclaimed to the other “what is wrong with chocolate today!?” The other says “i don’t know but I don’t want anymore.” I was laughing so hard I really couldn’t say which one said what.. Poor girls..
Suppose they’ll swear off chocolate forever? That’ll leave more for us!
I think Genese has gone on strike as far as Wordscraper is concerned. It’s been four days AGAIN since I last played. Maybe she’s afraid of losing…
