Pleasant moments...

Because I would have had to wait too long for an appointment with my regular hairdresser, I made one at a new salon that is also just a few minutes away from here. I called yesterday and had an appointment this morning. It is a brand spanking new hair salon and I was eager to try it out after having gone to the old one for 15 years. I do like a routine, but at the same time, I am more than ready to sometimes try something new and I felt that this was the time for it.
The young woman who cut my hair didn't really ask me how I wanted it cut, but made a suggestion that sounded good to me, and she added that she could always alter my hair if I was not completely happy with it. She then proceeded to give me an almost perfect haircut and really took her time doing it. When she was done, she asked me if I was happy, and I told her I wanted a bit more off the top, which she did. And then my hair was perfect.
I am glad I found a new person to cut my hair and from now on I will always have her do it. I also liked her sparkly personality and the way she looked so perfectly put together. The fact that she was so young added an extra pleasant dimension to it. That does help you get another point of view on life and other contents to your conversation. Both she and the other young woman in the salon are middle-eastern and that makes it extra interesting. I am always ready to be exposed to a bit of another culture.
I've got such easy hair now. It hasn't been this short in ages. I do want to wash it with the silver shampoo and get it a bit lighter, but that is something I will do this weekend when I have time to let it sit in my hair for a while.
Tomorrow morning I have to go to Tai Chi, which is in the same neighborhood the Exfactor lives in, so I will have coffee at his place afterwards. I told him I would only come if he still had windmill cookies and he assured me that he did. I can easily eat 4 or 5 of them and they do cheer me up. In the afternoon, I have to do the grocery shopping and before I go to sleep tonight, I will make a very detailed shopping list. This week I do have to stay under the budget. If I live very carefully, I will eek by this month. There is the sport in that.

It can be a scary, yet exciting, prospect going to a new hairdresser. Glad this one worked out for you. I agree that sometimes you need a change to liven things up a bit!

Yes, it's definitely a sport learning how to live on a very limited amount of money. I find that by being very careful with my resources, though, I can still manage to buy myself a treat of some sort every month, which almost always means art supplies for me. It's cool that you have a good excuse now to drop by the Ex's place for coffee, since he drops by yours often. Have a great evening! xo

Isn't it the BEST to find a person who knows how to cut hair well? Lots of people cut hair, but it's hard to find people who do it sublimely well.
