New haircut!

Friday, June 01, 2012

I went to a new salon down the road from me this morning for a cut and highlights. I have a little bit of grey mostly at my temples and wanted to camouflage things a bit. She did a nice job, cut about 2 inches off, and put in some highlights that are actually very close to my color. So me...just a little bit brighter. She also blew out my hair which I can NEVER be bothered to do! The difference is dramatic just with the blow out...

This is the before picture:

And..this is after:

Really not very different except that it is transiently gorgeously smooth. I love my thick curly hair....but this is pretty fun too. It looks a bit better in person--loads of shine and movement.

Today is F-20....doing good so far but forgot to put my bugg on until late morning. Not a super huge deal but it does make it harder to reach my goal targets! Did great day at a time!

Random question...anyone out there with any sourdough experience? I ordered a starter from KAF and have it burbling away. Working on making some things today with the extra that I have after the initial feed/water out there?

Off to the kitchen....and eventually to the recumbent bike. I'm loathe to screw up my pretty blown out hair too much before Justin sees it! :)

    I made my own starter and some sourdough a couple years back, just to learn the methods. My family quickly got exhausted of my 'starter feeding discard' creations... pancakes, bagels, pretzel bites, biscuits, etc. I hated to waste any of it.
    Eventually gave up on it when my work hours increased.

    BUT, the sourdough loaves I did cook in those months were heavenly. I'd recommend anyone give bread-baking a try. Nothing like kneading or the pillowy softness of focaccia dough between your fingers to sooth you.

    Very nice - I gotta get my hair cut as the pre-surgery BALD SPOT is gone.

    You look fantastic. It's great having a few different options for doing your hair, just to be able to change things up once in a while.
