I got my hair cut today. But before that I went to my old store and spent some time working with their Cafe Supervisor, their GM, and my DM on par worksheets, ordering, and the need for an auto-populated-restocking-report-fed order sheet. My boss called our home office and left a message for our man-of-all-things-operational to see about getting this created. It's all in who you know, isn't it? Did any of that make sense?
Anyway, after we went to ludinner, or dunch, hey it was 4pm so it was lunch + dinner...sushi and bento boxes and hot tea, yum...I went to the hair cutting establishment. "I need a haircut," said I, as I was greeted by the friendly young lady who called me sweetheart. I don't mind being called sweetheart...we're in Texas, and it's not uncommon. It is, however, a bit odd when someone younger than I says it, and when this younger person is a lady. But I just chalk that up to friendliness and go with the flow.
The sweetheart-saying girl matched me up with Drew, a cutie pie young man who spent a fair amount of time feeling my hair and talking to me about what he could do to add texture and volume and style. He was adorable, and I didn't mind one bit that he was touching my head. It didn't feel freakish at all. I even asked about getting highlights, and he talked to me about those options, too. In the end I just got it cut. Drew did a wonderful job. He created many layers and took a fair amount of time to cut it from the inside out, in all dimensions, and from all angles. He had interesting conversation to share as well. I really like the result.
And so, I did it...I got my hair cut.
And now on to cookies!
I bought 3 magazines with cookie recipes in them and have been thoroughly enjoying myself reading them. My mother has a 1978 Southern Living Holiday Cookie recipe magazine, and it's the best I've ever seen in 30 years for cookie recipes, but these 3 magazines are fun as well. One is a Land O' Lakes special issue, another is a Better Homes & Gardens special issue, and the third is a Martha Stewart Living special issue. It is too early to say if I'll actually spent the time and money making holiday cookies, but I sure am having a good time perusing the magazines.
The wind is blowing a cold front in, and it's supposed to be 36 degrees tonight. I'm looking forward to it.
I can't believe Thanksgiving is one week from today! I'm responsible for making and bringing the Asian salad, cheese tortas, crackers and such, and something else I have written down somewhere. Maybe I'll bring some wine for those of us who would like a glass.
What wines go well with Thanksgiving dinner and are not too expensive?
