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.
