A day in my life

I worked last week and made a lot of lovely gift baskets. I had a very nice day hanging out with everyone at work. My beautician is in the same wonderful old house, along with another beautician, as the place I work in. I went in and had my hair cut and colored with red highlights. I really wanted to go festive for the holidays.

I am getting bolder in my old age. In my thirties, I would not have had the courage to go so hot. However, once in high school between my junior and senior year, I decided to have my long brown hair bleached. That was a mess,I don't think I need to say anymore. LOL! Some of my pictures I am brunette and some blond. Argh...I was not thinking and I had it dyed back that summer.

This morning my boss's mother called me to tell me how beautiful the gift baskets were. She said she can always tell when I have been there because of all of the pretty stuff I make. Well, you know, I can't take a compliment. I didn't know what to say except that the man that custom ordered everything really pulled it all together. This man's wife is dying of cancer, and he is so precious in that he gives her the most wonderful and thoughtful gifts. Sometimes flowers, other times gifts of luxury for his wife. I am always touched by his love for her. I keep them in my prayers as well.

I am so excited because my sissy is coming to stay for about a week. She has been sick. I haven't seen her in over two months. First thing, she wants to do is eat Mexican food at Posado's. We usually just get one puffy taco a la Cart with guacamole. She gets the puffy sopapillo with honey for dessert. We will also do some Christmas shopping for her grand children and my great niece and nephew. Of course, we will have to go to Sam's and look for books and get pizza for lunch.

Her grand daughter/my great niece will be turning three this month. Her parents are having her party at a tree farm. I think that is a really great idea. They provide all the cake and goodies, and the kids get to ride on a hay ride type thing and pick out trees.

We will go to the chiropractor as many times as we can to get her back in shape. I think we will go and see the million lights on the court house in Marshall, TX. http://www.visitmarshalltexas.org/

That is about it for me. I am still trying to pull my home together for the holidays.
I keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Have a great week.

Miss Pam,

I think you look beautiful - wow, red highlights. Gorgeous. Stunning.

It sounds like you have a lot to be excited about. Now don't I remember just a few days ago.....down in the dumps?

Well, it certainly looks like God had a wonderful surprise in store for you.

Gotta run, want to go and tell Mom this exciting news.

Heaps of Hugs
Prudence
XOXOXOXOXO

Why not wait for Sissy to arrive and finish those decorations together. Maybe a new family tradition? (o: We love tradition.

Your new "doo" sound festive and fun! I am so afraid to dye my hair - I might like it and then I would have to keep it up! haha!

Have fun with the babies and check out those lights!!

Sandee said...

Are we going to get a picture of your new do?

I always keep you in my thoughts and prayers too. I hope your sister feels better soon.

Have a terrific day. Big hugs. :)

Prudence and Sissy, you bears are so cute and funny. I thank you for the nice comment. I am excited to see my sister. We always cheer one another up.

Prudence you are not going to help me decorate my house? I really wish I had some help, but I know I will get it done.

Lailani, I was like you about coloring my hair. At my age, a girl has to do what a girl needs to do...hence the color. I am too young to look old. LOL!

Sandee, a picture of me...I don't think so my dear. It is growning on me. I await to see what my sister thinks of it. Hubs likes it.

Travis Cody said...

Sounds like some good stuff going on these days. Have fun!

Debra said...

Hey there Pam,

Thanks so much for stopping by today and leaving such wonderful words of encouragement.

I'll bet your hair looks pretty with those red highlights. You should post us a picture! I have been every color in the rainbow. Last christmas I got on this blond thing and went all blond, but in February I was back to my regular red. It's just hair right? LOL

Sounds like a wonderful time awaits with that visit from your sister.

Blessings,
Debra

Rudee said...

Your customer sounds like an amazing man. How kind he is to keep showing his wife the evidence of his love.

Enjoy the week with your sister.

Just Be Real said...

Pam, sounds like you have some great upcoming plans happening. I only dye my hair to cover up my gray. :) Sounds good on you dear the red highlights. Blessings.

Finding Pam said...

Travis, yes sir...there are some good things going on here. Yeah!

Debra, I hope my words did encourage you. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting.

I have always had dark brunette hair. I wanted a change and I think red matches my personality. You are braver than me if you have done so many colors. LOL!


Rudee, nice to read a comment from you. I can't imagine how difficult this is for that man and his wife.

I look forward to time with my sister.

JBR, Yes...sissy and I will have a lot of fun, then I will go to her house and visit with her kids and grand kids.

We will see how I fair with red highlights in my hair. I am not as brave as I once was. LOL! I have to find the right attitude to rock this red hair.

The Bear's Blog said...

Pam,

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT invite that crazy old lady of a bear to come and stay with you. Your life will turn upside down in one split second.

Oh, she will decorate - everything that isn't moving, including sleeping pets. Honest.

Blessings always,
Joyce
