(I thought life was supposed to slow down when you retired…)
Jumped out of the bed this morning at 7:30 (horrors – I usually sleep until 8:30 or 9:00). I had an appointment to get my hair cut at 9:00 and I really didn’t want to miss it. The stylist is a recommendation from someone at church and I liked her very much.
When we were moving out here, I remember my cousin Anne saying she didn’t want to move because she just couldn’t bear having to find a new hairdresser. She thought she would rather change doctors than try to find someone new to cut her hair.
I laughed at her.
I feel her pain.
We’ve been here 14 months and this was the 5th person I’ve had try to cut my hair like I wanted it.
I think she did an okay job.
We’ll see how it holds up after it’s washed.
I had no sooner gotten home than it was time to go to the Knitting Club here at Tobey Jones. I’m trying to get the sleeves of a sweater done before it turns cool enough to need it. I should be okay, but I’m pretty bored with the pattern since I’ve used it on the back and both fronts. Thank goodness I decided to do drop sleeves, so I don’t have to worry about the extra 6-8 inches raglan or cap sleeves take.
Then Big Al and I went to lunch at Silk Thai – our favorite Thai restaurant. We’ve neglected them the past couple of months and they were feeling a little bereft without us visiting them.
We got home in time to go to Happy Hour at the Garden Apartments. It’s also been a while since we’ve been over there, and it was good to see everybody and catch up on the news. There are a lot of new residents there since we moved, so it was good to remind ourselves who lived where, etc.
We watched “Jack Reacher” last night, and I was pleasantly surprised. The dialogue was pretty true to the books and Tom Cruise did a very good job as Reacher. BUT, it still suffered from his size. The fight scenes were less believable since he is (comparatively) so slight. But it was a nice way to spend the evening.
Now if I can only get Big Al to take me to see “The Butler.”
