Friday Roundup

You can learn to follow the inner self, the inner physician that tells you where to go. Healing is simply attempting to do more of those things that bring joy and fewer of those things that bring pain.

O. Carl Simonton

As this Friday rolls around, I find that I have nothing much to report.  I've been sick all week.  Not bed-ridden sick, but sick enough that I don't feel like going out and doing anything.  Perhaps I would have felt better  yesterday had I bundled up and headed to the Center for a few hours, but I'm guessing I was still contagious, and I have a busy weekend planned for myself.

On Friday, after stocking up on a few necessary food items, I plan on coloring my hair.  It's time for the auburn to go.  It looks nasty when the gray starts to come in, so I am gradually lightening and ridding myself of the red.  That way, when it gets light enough, it won't be such a shocker when I decide to forego coloring altogether.  Although I have lightened up on makeup and fancy hairdos, I am just not ready to give up the coloring process yet....although I will admit, after doing so for more years than I can count, it is becoming quite tedious.

Then, on Saturday I am hoping to get my hair cut.  It's Spring, and I want a new me.  I've always transformed myself with the seasons, and the fact that I am now a senior citizen doesn't change a thing.   Spring has always been a time of new beginnings, and after this long, snowy, and brutally cold winter, I am especially in need of reinventing myself.

Then, on Sunday I am planning to hop on the bus after church and head out to Burlington.  I've agreed to participate in a fashion show at the Center, and although it doesn't involve in dressing up in gowns or fancy new fashions, I would like something new to model.  

Of course, all my plans are dependent upon the weather, which I understand is going to be warm, but 'wet and wild'.  So, we shall see what the weekend brings.

There is little chance that meteorologists can solve the mysteries of weather until they gain an understanding of the mutual attraction of rain and weekends.

Hoping you all have a joyful weekend. May it be filled with love, peace, and quality time with loved ones and friends.  See you all on Monday.


  1. Can't wait to see the new DO!
    P.S. I still color mine. Well, my hairdresser does. ;0)
    Have a wonderful weekend Mary.

  2. At 46, I am in the process of growing out my color. I too have become tired of the coloring process, which only lasts about 3 weeks now. So, once fall rolls around, my stylist and I have a plan. I hope you are feeling better each day!
