ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER 'U' : UNNEEDED
I have two luxuries, which I suppose I could live without but I wouldn't want to. The first is to get my hair done every week. Now the photo above doesn't exactly look like I just had it done but that's because it is supposed to have the 'tousled' look. My beautiful beautician took the photo just a few minutes after it was finished. She really does a wonderful job. It takes very little to look after it -- just the "Freeze and Spray" hairspray which is quite strong, but very necessary as my hair has a mind of its own. I can't believe how old I look here. My hair color is natural. I wanted to take a photo to compare with others taken a year or so ago. Perhaps I shouldn't have. But this is my birthday photo. Christmas Day I will be 79. I really don't believe it. I don't feel a day older than 69 -- but obviously I look it.
UGH! I remember now why blogging was such a chore! I CAN'T get the underline to turn off. What a pain! I'll just have to continue writing and try later to turn the thing off. Sorry! Blogger has a mind of its own too!The second luxury is to have lady who comes to clean the house every two weeks. What a blessing that is! It means we have to put away stuff we've been working on or just left out. There is'nt much to do in the kitchen since I don't cook a lot. The dust is the biggest problem. The house is quite old, though it doesn't look it, but it certainly gets a lot of dust. That is partly because I have the front door open most days. Our large living room windows face south and the sun keeps the house nice and warm. With the doors open we get a beautiful breeze right through the house. Lovely!We had about half an inch of rain yesterday and expect another half inch tonight. We badly need the rain. Have had water rationing most of the summer.
I'll be showing you a few changes we have made in our back yard in my next blog and a couple of pieces of my artwork too. Then I have to tell you about the big excitement I have coming up next weekend. See you soon.
