What a Relief!

What a relief! I got my hair cut yesterday and it is soooo much better.

I called my regular barber (yes, she is a barber) and she was unable to get me in. She has her surgery on Monday, so I knew I'd have to find someone else until she gets better. So I went to the nearest Supercuts and signed in. There was only one stylist there, and he was the manager. He actually listened to what I wanted and gave me a great cut. He also gave me some tips on styling while drying. So I am a very happy camper today.

I've been knitting on some socks from my Vinca yarn that I bought a while back. (The second one from the left.) I love the way the colors are going from one color to another. The downside (to me) is that I wasn't able to match the colors from one sock to another. I'm a little bit particular about that, but I'm just going to loosen up and wear them.

Today I am being adventurous. I'm going to try a new nail salon. My favorite tech moved to a neighboring suburb to manage the salon in the Wal-Mart there. It is not too far away, but there is a salon a mile from my house that I'm going to try. (Wow! a new barber and a new nail tech all in the space of two days! I am being brave!) You can tell I'm not a very flexible person. I get in a rut and stay there.

The dogs are being couch potatoes this morning. Hopefully, they will stay in this mood until I get back. Yesterday they emptied the trash can, spread trash all over the kitchen and dining room, shredded the trash bag, and ate the last slice of cherry pie that was left out on the kitchen cabinet. I'm not sure if they have separation anxiety, or if they just think it is funny to make a mess. This time I will be sure everything is put away before I leave.

Well, I'm back from the nail salon. They did an OK job. I still like my regular girl better.

As for the dogs, they didn't make a mess! Yay! How big a mess can they make in an hour? You'd be surprised!

Oh! The native puppies are restless! I understand being particular about things (you know my hair infatuation), but it's good to try new things - now you have a Plan B!

I really like that yarn! I like how wide the color stripes are! I may have to try some!

I love that yarn! After just cursing at Noro the Vinca looks like it will give a similar effect, hopefully without the headaches. I thank you for posting those pictures. My credit card may not thank you, however. :)

What great looking socks, I love that yarn!

Yay! I'm so glad your hair came out. I was afraid when you said you were going to a new barber again. We remember what happened last time!

Awh - you have the beautiful Vinca out again. YUM!

Love the color of the socks.

And with most dogs some days I think it's just a whim. Let's see how far we can drive Mom to the edge without quite going over.

They are VERY lucky we love them.

May I add you to my blogroll?
