Monday 6 July 2009
Hair  I need to be more dilligent about vinegar rinses now, since I'm using mousse and hair spray almost every day.  I've discovered that with those two products I don't need to use bobby pins to keep my hair out of my face or need to keep tucking my hair behind my ears.  The mousse also seems to help my hair look fuller on top, where my thin spot is located.  The thin spot doesn't appear to be worsening (thankfully) but I know it will never get better. 

Other  We had a quiet and uneventful 4th of July, which is what we hoped
for.   Smiley  No fireworks for us but there were plenty going off around us. 

I seem to be coming down with another UTI.   Angry  It's great having a daughter in the medical field who can just call in a prescription for dear old mom.   Smiley  She's still going to make me pee in a cup, though, to ensure proper dosage.   Grin  You know, women's bodies just aren't designed well, are they?  I mean, there are too many openings in one location that can cause problems.  --One thing goes wrong and KABLOOEY.   Tongue  Ah well, such is the life of woman.  I know, stop complaining and be glad I'm alive, eh?   Wink

Have you tried drinking cranberry juice?  If you have a cup of that every day, it often prevents and/or cures UTIs.  I had a few problems that way around the time I was going into menopause, and cranberry juice was the cure.

Definately cranberry juice.  You can make your own without all the sugar.  Cranberry concentrate,you add filtered water and steevia.

I've known about the cranberry juice solution for some time, but I just don't do it as preventative maintenance.  I guess I need to do that--run some of the good stuff through there.   Grin

Hair  Still letting it grow...still washing every day with the diluted shampoo concoction.  At this rate, I won't have to buy shampoo for the rest of the year!

Other  The secretary is taking vacation for a freakin' WEEK AND A HALF starting Monday.   Sad  I don't even have to tell you who has to sit out front in her stead, do I...  So I'm taking off tomorrow and Friday, just to get in a little R&R beforehand.  God, I dread this...

Thursday 9 July 2009
Hair  Did a vinegar rinse this morning.  I'm still amazed at how soft my hair feels after one of those.  Niiiiice.   Smiley  Giving my hair a rest today from the mousse and spray.  After all, what's the use of cleansing w/vinegar if you're just going to put product right back on?  Right now I'm using a hair comb to keep my bangs out of my face.  Hmm, I wonder how long my hair is now?  I should measure it, just for the 'ell of it...............   It's about 15 1/2".   Cheesy  --NOT that I'm thinking of growing out my hair again.  I am not thinking of going there.  Am I?  *ahem*  No, no.   Huh

Other  I'm braving dial-up to make this entry; that's how much I love it here at LL.   Cool  It's going to be so delightful having a 4-day weekend.  I've not made any definite plans.  I need to clean the house but will not tear my hair out if it doesn't get done.  Life is too short to worry about dust bunnies.  No, I think I'm just going to enjoy having all of this extra free time by watching old movies, perhaps reading, and tending my hummingbirds.  There must be over 100 of those hungry, hungry hippos and they're draining my 4 feeders twice a day.  Such fascinating little creatures!

My goodness!!!  Are you putting crack in the feeders?  Cheesy  I envy you and La Diosa with your birds and frogs and gardens.  I can't wait until we get settled in Texas and I can start putting out feeders and plants that will attract all the creatures.

*snort*  One would think so by the numbers we're seeing!  They just know which side their bread is buttered on...or in this case, where to score the good stuff.   Grin

Do you have lot's of red in your yard?  I was reading that the color red attracts them.

Last year, I believe I had 2 hummers.  This year, I'm convinced that I have only one. Cry  I'm glad he frequents my yard, I just wish I had more.  I've been wondering if there is much of a hummingbird population here. Undecided

Monday 13 July 2009
Hair  So...I've realized that it's okay for me to exist in the cycle of growing and cutting that I seem to be in.  Some people grow their hair long, never allowing scissors to touch their tresses.  That's okay.  Some grow their hair but get regular trims.  That's okay too.  I seem to do best with a sort of combination of the two...getting my hair cut once or twice a year yet allowing it to grow in between.  Whatever works, eh? 

Other  La Diosa, the only red items we have in our yard are the hummingbird feeders.   Smiley  With hummingbirds, I truly believe it's a word of mouth thing--or in this case word of "beak".  You know, one hummer (apologies Angel) tells another, and they tell two friends, and they tell two friends, and so on and so on.  The first year I too only had one hummingbird.  I think the second year I may have also seen just the one little guy (that was about 6 or 7 years ago).  But every year since then, the numbers seem to double.  I guarantee you, lady, if you keep putting out the feeder eventually you'll see more and more.   Cool 

For the next week and a half, Yours Truly will be out front "womanning" the reception area.   Sad

Exactly!  It's your hair and it's on your head.  I'm still trying to find out what trimming needs my hair has to remain in top shape though.  I think I'm going to be a regular mini-trimmer every 3 months.
