Busy Day! A Hair Cut and more...

Yes, I got my hair appointment and hair cut. No, I didn't take off any length. I just had her work on the layers, then cut the top (and bangs). (I think she wanted to cut the bottom, but as she took too much off last time I wasn't going for that!)

Get this. She wanted to color my hair today! She'd decided it would be fun to add some lighter red streaks to my hair. At the tune of $65 (minimum), no less. I wasn't buying that, frankly. Way too expensive! (And my hair grows out so fast that it's just not worth it to me...)

Fun idea if I had endless amounts of money, I suppose. (smile) Though I told her I'd probably prefer dark maroon streaks, rather than light ones!

Sister Sue got her eyebrows waxed and hair set (curled with an iron) while we were there, so it took a lot longer than usual. (sigh) Oh well.

Before, Sue had suggested we go for coffee at Starbucks, which I was all over! But afterwards she preferred to go to lunch, which didn't interest me much.

We went to Patty's, as that's where Sue goes each week for cribbage. Let's just say it's a dive and the food isn't what I would have liked. I'm still burping it up after several Tums. (ugh) I didn't want a burger, considering I'd had one over the weekend. (I was trying to be good.) I ended up eating half a tuna sandwich, which would be fine if tuna wasn't something I don't digest well without tons of lemon... Seriously, I'm not complaining, even though I've got better ways to spend my time than eating lunch out.

I did get my package for Sandy to the post office and mailed, finally! (About time. Yes, I know.)

And I finished vacuuming the living room this morning before leaving the house. With help from Scarlett, who was all over me every second. Sweetie! (grin) Sure, it takes much longer to do everything, but it's worth it to have a cat again.

Well, I finished the PSP7 version of the light texture tutorial.

Because of how version 7 works, I couldn't really begin to use the version 9 light texture tutorial I'd done previously. So I had to find a new and different way to get a similar effect. I did that without too much trouble and I liked the new version so much I actually went back and edited the tutorial at psp9_fun to add to it! (One version uses 'ripple' while the other uses 'wave.' In other words, they aren't that different, but the ripple version sucked used in PSP7...)

I need to get back to the script now, and work on the garbage and recycling. (Seeing as it's Wednesday.) My yard guy might not make it today. (He came a day late last week, too.) I would like the yard to look half-way decent for Easter, whatever happens...
