Yet Another Friday

Today I went to the local garden center at Walmarts and got a couple of nice containers to put my plants in. I also got some potting soil AND got my hair cut. This last was an afterthought because as I walked by the salon on my way back to the car, I realized that I really needed to sit down!  I have been considering a hair cut for a couple of weeks so that worked out well. She cut off quite a lot because that was what I asked her to do. The only thing I didn’t like is that she cut the back straight across like a man’s cut even though I specifically asked her not to do this. Oh well, it will grow out. But I like what she did with the rest of it.

One interesting thing that came out of this is that I got a recommendation for a massage therapist. As soon as the hairdresser realized I was English, she told me her massage person was from England too, and then went on quite a lot about how good she is! The hairdresser said she had been going for massages every two weeks for about four years so that in itself is a recommendation worth paying attention to. I got the massage person’s name and phone number before I left.

When I got home, I was very tired so I just piled everything up by the front door and went to lie on the bed. I turned the new fan on high and it was wonderful. I thought I might take a nap but the phone rang and it was a nice surprise, a friend, P., whom I hadn’t spoken to or heard from in years. A couple of weeks ago I had come across his email address and sent him an email to let him know where and how I was. It was very nice to hear from him. Apparently all the time he was talking to me, he was driving across Iowa! I asked him what he was doing these days and he said, "Working" which was no surprise since that is his main interest. He is an engineering consultant and gets paid a lot of money but with no security. I don’t know that I could tell you what he does {even though I helped him update his resume once} but he is paid a lot and has no problem getting a new contract when the one he currently working runs out.

Tomorrow Jake is taking me to lunch at the farmers’ market in Raleigh. We went once before and I enjoyed the food.

Goals: Transfer a couple of plants into the bigger pots.

           Physical therapy exercises. I did none today but I walked a lot.

I like that you were spontaneous. That adds a little excitement to life. I am so not spontaneous, usually. Thanks for your nice note!

I have thought about getting my hair cut shorter but with my face being so round I’m not so sure. Glad you like yours!! Hmm, repotting plants…. I have one that needs to be done. LOL Hugs,M

Maybe I should move to where you are. I would love to have a whole bunch of clients who came in every two weeks! I’m so happy you found someone. I hope you like her.

I really like my hair dresser. It is better when they do what you asked. Here, a massage is expensive. I would want someone good though if I could afford it. I love a Farmer’s Market.

Short hair is so much easier to manage. Have you heard from your “old” friend again?

I hope you enjoyed the farmer’s market, and what a great recommendation for a massage therapist! I’ve had the same experience with short hair. I had a pixie cut and when I moved to NYC I went to a JC Penny in Queens, and the woman used the clippers on the back of my head instead of just cutting with scissors. Thankfully hair grows back! *HUGS*
