Happy Summer!

Well, I know it's not technically summer yet, but it feels enough like it and I figure everyone's in that state of mind, so I gave my blogge and shoppe little seasonal shift face lifts.  I plan on trying to keep up with this for all the seasons, probably recycling the same banners and stuff, but I thought it would be nice to mix it up.  

So, starting summer off fairly well.  Got a new item in the shoppe and have supplies and ideas for a few more to come.

Planted a pecan tree where I actually want one as opposed to all the volunteer ones that keep making my yard work more difficult.

My rogue lantanas (I found another one!) seem to be surviving with promises of thriving despite the fact that I butchered their tap roots whilst digging them up.  I have lost some respect for the tap root of the lantana plant.

I now have to put my baby to bed with a soft blanket, but then go in after she's fallen asleep and take it away from her so she doesn't smother herself.

Got a fancy new haircut at Avant Salon from a lovely stylist named Carianne.  She had tattoos and had her bleached blonde hair all done up like a cross between Gwen Stefani and Rosie the Riveter.  We chatted about the Make Up For Ever line because she liked my eye shadow (for those who don't know, I think this line is mostly used by drag queens and is carried by Sephora).  It was a great experience and I'm really enjoying the cut.  I may be a short hair convert, for at least a little while.

So things feel fresh and new, albeit hot.  Looking forward to changes up ahead and having the tools to tackle them.  Going to start tearing down some sheet rock any day now.  Maybe tomorrow.  I also plan to try to make pitas.  Tonight.


  1. you're cute- like the summer make-overs!

  2. Thanks Wisely. Your faerie hair makes me wistful for long hair, but I'm happier with short, at least for now. Mine does bad tricks when it's long.
