haircuts? We all feel terrific after a good haircut, don't we? Mr. kenju and I went to our salon today and I think we are both about a pound and a half lighter now. I'm not sure if my hair is growing faster than usual, or if I didn't let my stylist cut enough last time, but I've hated my hair all month. It always hangs limply in the winter anyway, and when it is too long - I look like a bag lady who wielded dull scissors on her own hair.
And what is it with warmer weather that makes me want to clean the garage? Our temps are in the low 60's today and I just spent the last three hours sweeping, scooping, re-arranging and tossing. The car is filled with another load for the landfill (and Goodwill) and I have had my fill of fresh air and a bit of sunshine to boot. Plus I remembered that February is the time to prune a crape myrtle, so my miniature one (which isn't so small anymore) got taken down by half. I'll have to ask my friend Biff to come over with his loppers; there's a branch too large for me to cut with my ratchet clippers.
And what is it with Biff anyway? He used to blog nearly everyday and since he married Tiff, he hardly says anything on his blog. It's too bad because I used to really enjoy his early posts. Luckily, Tiff takes up the slack and does a fine job of it.
And what is it with cars? Why don't they last as long as you want them to without maintenance? I've noticed a leak on the garage floor for the last 2-3 days and when I was checking it out today, I decided it was probably anti-freeze, since it had a pinkish/red tinge. I put some of my old, non-clumping cat litter to good use - it soaked it right up! Then before I pulled the car into the garage, I laid down a lot of newspaper to soak up whatever spills out tonight. That way I can take some of that paper with me to the repairman and he'll know what it is. (I feel so smart!) I also know to keep the cats out of the garage until the car is fixed, since anti-freeze tastes good to them and it is poison. Did you know that? If not, I've done my good deed for the day.
