It’s a sunny but cold Sunday. The chill is still too close to the bones to go out and enjoy the “supposedly” spring weather. The great indoors is still the stomping grounds. So then, what’ll I do today?
I’m getting back into the groovy of things.
It would also be quite groovy to look like an illustration. Don’t you think?
As I sit here, the contents of an inexpensive box of hair color is sitting on my head. The black hair dye is just too harsh for me at this stage, and although my thinning hair is leaning more to the loss side, I’m not ready to go gray with what remains. Instead, I’m going for a lighter brown. It makes me feel better about myself. It makes me feel rather groovy!
Hot damn! The dye no longer hides the baldness. Time for a lighter version of Toppik!
And blow drying no longer works to make my coarse hair smooth!
fuggetaboutit–I’ll just plop on a wig!!!
And after last night’s dinner of Cornish Hen, homemade bread, mushrooms in a cream sauce—and various tastings of the cognac/cranberry sauce I made for Bonaparte, I’m so ready to get back into my Weight Watchers groovy of things.
Healthier eating. I made this 2-egg omelette last week and had tomato and artichoke on the side. A filling and delicious meal!
Notice—I’m using the term “groovy” rather than “groove”. I think groovy is a happier word. It makes me think of the late 1960’s and the Paul Simon song. A time of change but a time of peace overruling unrest.
I’m feeling rather groovy just hearing this!
The little guest room where I go to put my makeup on each day needs to be organized. It’s so odd but my time management skills in connection with putting stuff away after I use them needs to be worked on. When I’m rushing out the door in the morning, I’m tired when I get back from the office and become lax—not with the home, but with my own little corner. Does that ever happen to you?
Today is a great day to work on that because once the warmth arrives, more time will be spent out rather than indoors.
And I’m mulling over what to wear to an upcoming family reunion next Saturday. Dress is casual but I want to be comfortable yet polished. I’m not going out to “buy” an outfit. I’ve a ton of stuff to chose from and I know it’ll be jeans and a blazer—but which ones? And which hair?
LOL. As in “Which Navy Schoolboy blazer” will I wear???
The hair is my biggest question. My family is huge. And with that will come at least one family member who has a bit too much to drink, thinks they are a comedian and pull my wig off—I fear wearing “good” hair in that it could get tossed around and ruined. Perhaps I’ll wear inexpensive hair! I guess it’s a blessing in disguise that I’m dying what’s left of my bio hair today “just in case”!
Seriously. I wanted to wear Violet but I love her too much to have someone’s grubby paws grab her from my head and toss her.
You know, I don’t know why but I’m feeling a bit sad today. Sometimes it just happens. It isn’t that “Sunday afternoon” feeling where you dread the upcoming week. Quite the contrary because I look forward to going to work. It’s that “empty” feeling. That feeling you get of surrounding quiet save for the din of the heat kicking in and the outside wind hitting against the glass of the windows.
I’m not THAT kind of sad–it’s a more empty feeling!
That happens to me during the times when I miss having my kids around. And I’ll be the first to admit that it is pure selfishness. It makes me wonder if I was a better parent when my children were younger than being a better parent to adult children. Was it a mistake to raise them to be more independent so that they are comfortable in moving away? I gave them the gift of freedom but at times I want it back.
Oddly enough–it was those times that I miss–I had a purpose!
I’m a control freak on so many levels but raising kids—I guided them and didn’t control them because I wanted them to think freely without depending on me.
Maybe that was the groovy way to raise them and the groovy thing is that I appreciate them more when I see them. Maybe I’m just being an empty nester!
And with that empty nester in mind, I went up to my little nest of a girly room and did some organizing.
After coloring my roots a lighter color, I tackled the little room and reorganized it.
Yes. Rushing out the door in the morning does have it’s drawbacks. And THIS is why doors were invented. You can close them and forget the mess!
I threw stuff away. Stuff I don’t use. I organized the shelfs and my blazers and then some.
Now I can truly relax and know that the entire house is now as it should be–organized and neat.
And boy, does it ever feel great!
I made a video for my YouTube channel about things that annoy me.
And I put some thought as to what I’ll wear this coming week to work. Despite the weather, I’m dying to wear a skirt with some bare legs—so I fake tanned. As I write this, I added the second layer. Why do I feel as though I’m frosting a cake?
Time to frost my legs with the second layer of fake tan!
That’s about it for today. I have weigh in tomorrow and hopefully I haven’t gained weight—and I would not be surprised if I did. But at least I’m back on track.
Here’s a sampling of what I wore this past week to work. Keeping it casual!!
I wore this on Friday. The shirt is great and I forgot I had it. From my days at Nordstrom, an oversized white shirt by Free People. It’s going to get a lot of wear! Sorry but I was unable to show the hair I wore. I’ll be doing a review soon from this new wig by Estetica Designs!
Thursday’s outfit photographed a lot more casual than it actually was. I’m wearing blue velvet pants, with blue suede shoes a plaid shirt and denim jacket. The lighting was too much to handle!
I loved Wednesday’s outfit. Burgundy velvet pants matched my hair! A hunter green sweater, denim jacket, heels and pearls. What’s not to love? I may wear this getup to the family reunion!
Tuesday was a brightly colorful day! Hot pink cords, a blue sweater and a colorful infinity scarf to tie it all together! My seven dolla thrift shoes–j. crew beauties. I love those shoes so much!
And of course, on Monday–my Birthday Suit! The military jacket and hair from the husband!!! XOXOXOXO!!!
Here’s the video I made earlier today. Five (perhaps more) things that annoy me. Let me know what annoys you!!!!!!
