Pull up a chair, make yourself comfortable, and grab a cuppa your favorite drink. I’m having an iced coffee with caramel sauce and a dusting of unsweetened cocoa powder. It’s a little damp and chilly today, but hot coffee would be to warm.
I’m at the local coffee shop, hoping for a little spark of inspiration. This is usually a place I get some creativity, but maybe my well is running a bit dry. I thought my trip to Pa would have sparked something but that fell short too.
Maybe I’m trying too hard? Maybe I’m focusing too much on getting the spark back? Maybe I need a break? But I feel I’ve taken far too long of a break at this time. I think my expectations are getting the best of me. I know I’m probably worrying too much about all of it I’m sure.
How has your week been? Anything new or interesting happening? Any fun plans for the weekend?
I was hoping to get out on one of the trails this weekend but with the rainy weather I’m not so sure it will happen. But my hopes are still up for tomorrow. I miss the great outdoors. I had wanted to get some nature photos and a few walks in the mountains this past week while in Pa but things didn’t go as I envisioned. With all the stress over car trouble it kind of took a back seat.
I did however get my hair highlighted. It was an experience to say the least. At my age I’ve never highlighted my hair, colored it fully, yes but never highlights. It wasn’t what I expected and honestly I hated it lol. Live and learn, and you don’t know till you try it. Right? My Sissy and her daughter, Bella liked it. However once I got home and sported it around town for a few days, it was quite clear that my idea of the “orange brassy tones” were definitely there.
I sure as heck wasn’t seeing things.
Today I tried to fix it, and although it’s not the best, it is better than what it was. It does look better in person than in this photo thankfully. Oddly enough, the dye I used to fix what had been done, didn’t even take on my roots (which didn’t get much of the highlights on them to begin with anyway) So it still looks like I need to dye my hair, but because I’m not ready to go short yet or lose any hair, I’ll have to wait a little longer. I’m getting used to the colors that are there now.
Tomorrow I’m planning on going to the outdoor farmers market, grabbing some of my favorite Greek yogurt, and maybe taking a walk down in the village for a while. Get some me time in, I think it will do me good, and give me a little reboot to say the least.
I finally caught up on Once Upon a Time and wow I’m impressed with this season and obviously can’t wait till next season starts. As for Mad Men, the final episode airs this Sunday, and it’s bittersweet. Some of the episodes this season are leaving me annoyed, but I wont go into detail because I know a lot of folks haven’t caught up just yet. I just hope that the final episode lives up the the series and does it justice. We shall see…
I’m off to catch up on Grimm, since I’ve neglected a lot of television viewing this past season. So off I go with my cup of tea to end the night. I hope you all have a great weekend and you should check out the other bloggers who participate in the Weekend Coffee Share linky, hosted by Part Time Monster.
