Jesse brought home another kitten the other night. According to the Junk Diva, she "stole some poor little girl’s kitten," which makes Jesse a "cat burglar." If that is true, then the Diva’s daughter is an accomplice to the crime, since she was with Jes at the time of the theft. I’m not sure we should let those two run together. But the two kittens are another story. The new kitten keeps the bad kitten entertained. For that, I am very glad. Since there are two kittens now, I have been throwing them outside more. The new kitten seems to do quite well outside. The bad kitten wants in all of the time and is quite the whiner.
The Piper has taken his Royal family to a family reunion and asked me to take care of his dog – Beauregard. The dog has been no problem other than slinging slobber now and then - Basset hounds are slobbery creatures. Beau gets along well with my dogs and could care less about the kittens. This morning he needed some love and attention. I guess he misses the Royals.
Yesterday Toby, Jesse and I had lunch at the fairgrounds where they were having a goat show. It sure brought back memories of when the kids were in 4H. I’ve done lots of horse shows and county fairs in past years. We have also shown sheep and pigs. Those were fun times - glad their over. After we ate, we walked around to see the goats. One little girl had her goat dressed in a pink tutu, and the little girl was wearing a matching outfit. Jesse took photos. If she does not post one, I will steal her camera and post one. The pair was pretty cute and funny.
After lunch, I had an appointment to color my hair - the gray was getting too much for me. My hairdresser tried something new with my hair - a summer color. Actually it is the same color that she normally puts on me, but this time she used stronger volume peroxide to make the dark color a bit lighter. She did not put any highlights back into my hair, which makes a big difference. Anyway, I am darker haired today than I was yesterday. After I wash my hair a few times, it will lighten up, because color fades. Plus, being in the sun will lighten it up – that is why I called it a summer color. Every time I look in the mirror, I am a bit shocked. Who is that strange lady with the dark hair? In some ways, coloring my hair so different is sort of freeing. Once you have done something drastic to your hair, it frees you to do it more often – people are not so shocked by the change if you change more often. In truth, this is more my natural color. It is the color I would be without the blonde highlights. I’ve put so many highlights in my hair, that I have become a blonde. The twelve years in OK, I have been very blonde. It will be interesting to see how people react to the darker me. As soon as I got my new hairdo, I went to see Toby. He said he liked it and was very positive (I love that man!). We went to see a friend last night and ran into several other friends – no one mentioned my hair – not a good sign. I figure anyone who does not notice and comment on such a drastic change is either very dull or does not like the change. When I see someone with a new do, I try to comment nicely – every woman likes to be noticed. Speaking of new hairdos, Jesse got a new do too. She cut her hair off quite a bit. With her curly hair, it looks very nice. Maybe she will post a photo and you can all comment.
