Saturday Morning Coffee

After days of rain it’s good to see the sun in the sky. Let’s chat over some coffee. Continue reading “Saturday Morning Coffee”

Hair Crazy?

It seems like just last week I had a haircut; nevertheless, Krystal pointed out that it was time to get another one.

But I just got one!

Did you go to your normal person?


Did you get it thinned like you usually do?

[*sigh* no]

Then it’s time for another one. See if they can fit you in sometime this week. 

Thus began an interesting morning. Continue reading “Hair Crazy?”

It Must Be Tuesday

Nook Dont PanicTo paraphrase Arthur Dent, it must be Tuesday. I could never get the hang of Tuesdays.

Beginning at 7:00, I sneezed 41 times in an hour. Oddly specific, but I don’t normally sneeze, so I started keeping track after three. Since then, I haven’t needed to sneeze or blow my nose since. And, I feel really good. Well, much better than I have since collapsing with the flu a week ago last Saturday.

The haircut I thought was scheduled for today was scheduled for Thursday. This after going all day with my hair in a not-normal comb (I didn’t use any product) so that I could go right from Cross Country to my appointment. Looks like the Mysterious Countdown will finish with me having longer-than-usual hair. Ah, well.

After my non-haircut, I drove out of my way to return my library books, only to drive right past the library while holding said books in my lap, only realizing it when I parked the car in my driveway.

I did the only reasonable thing: put on a load of laundry and went back to the library.

Revenge of AnalogI browsed a bit and ended up feeding my addiction, picking up two new books despite the physical TBR waiting at home. When I checked out, the machine still said I had a book checked out, despite it already being on a van to another branch.

Oh! I almost forgot about Teaser Tuesday! Last night I settled down with The Revenge of Analog: Real Things and Why They Matter by David Sax. I read the whole thing in one sitting: the revival of vinyl and paper and books and everything tangible I enjoy so much. And then, nestled in one of the last chapters was tucked this gem:

Teachers are the key to analog education’s past, present, and future, and no technology can or should replicate them. Not because they have the most knowledge, but because without them, education is no more than facts passed back and forth. If you want facts, go read a book. If you want to learn, find a teacher.

So, how was your day?

Sunday Snapshots: Cut & Style

In anticipation of a December event requiring a hairstyle I’ve never had before, I haven’t cut my hair since April; Tuesday I went and had it cut and styled. Continue reading “Sunday Snapshots: Cut & Style”

Sunday Snapshots

I cleaned this week; picture opportunities seldom presented themselves.

That said, here’s a glimpse of my non-cleaning activities:



signed last will bryn greenwoodI rediscovered my signed copy of Last Will by Bryn Greenwood.



amazing maurice educated rodents coverAnother package arrived, this one bearing The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett.




german coffee
This German coffee powered most activities this week.



last piece of pie july 2015
This was the last piece of pie [with more of that German coffee].




haircut july 2015
I got a haircut for the first time in three months.
This is the “after” picture; I think I accidentally deleted the “before” picture.



steering wheel

In addition to cleaning, our church’s Vacation Bible School took up most evenings.
This was my view for a good hour – or more – each night.



vbs script 2015
I took part in the skit each night; here’s a glimpse of one of the scripts.



lion head or holy grail
This decoration supposed to portray a lion.
I can’t help but see the Holy Grail surrounded by rays of light.



Coffee and the Holy Grail
Obviously, the Grail contains coffee.
