My, my, I'm late again after taking a day off. It's like I need a day and a quarter to catch up. I had a date with my teenage neighbour at five to see the three week old baby lambs. They aren't newborns anymore but are still very cute. I helped my other neighbour with lamb chores for years until he gave up his farm. That neighbour was 94 yesterday and I visited him today too, in his nursing home.
I had my hair cut yesterday and really went out there and did something different. I've had long, straight hair for years and got it cut once a year to shoulder length. That usually translates to 6 inches. I had six inches cut yesterday but had it layered, much like I had in the seventies. Everyone likes it so far I guess. I have to learn how to use hair products and tools for the first time. I bought two hair products yesterday after a whole lifetime of never using any. It will be a learning curve for sure.
I wish my daughter were here. She knows everything about these girly things and I need her help. I've never blow dried my hair before, for God sakes, nor curling ironed it, or straightened it. A different friend actually gave me a curling iron and straightener yesterday. What have I done!?!?
I need some latin music. I don't have to dance since I went walking today. Rather than go into another room to put on a CD I will play this and dance anyway and spell wrong and have to go back and correct it and...
I picked a CD at random to play the other day and could not really remember it but realized what it was. It was called Gringo Music. It contained no latin music which was my only one. Here are a couple that I think aren't up. Na Cadencia Do Samba is a nice quiet samba offering from Cassia Eller and the classic Cielito Linda from Mariachi Vargas. I have many versions of this "anthem " to Mexico. My favorite is one that was removed by Putfile many moons ago. I will get it up again sometimes.
A couple more for putting up this long...Esa Noche from Cafe Tacuba and Maria Lando from Susana Baca from this post in April last year.
Update: My daughter called and I explained my hair dilemma. She is going to send help.
