if you need a cut and you live around here, go see Amber at Mitzi's in Gallatin or Madison. If you need a color, go see Meg or Amy at First Impressions in Westmoreland. You can't beat either of them! :)
Let's see....I worked more hours in one day than I am used to working in a while week, and tomorrow is more of the same. I'm ready for bed....if PiePie and his deer would cooperate, I could go a lot sooner than what I foresee in my near future.....

See Ms. Hottie Pants up there? ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I get to go see her tonight so she can color my hair. Yay! :) Doesn't she have the most adorable family ever? This is Makayla's older sister, Meg, and her man, Eric. They have the most precious babies....Grandbaby #1....Addi, and Grandbaby #3, Gatlin. I can't wait to get some nice new coloring going on....maybe tomorrow, you can see a photo of my new cut and color. Woot!
After getting the color on the hair, I get to go and watch Louann (i.e. Makayla) play basketball. I have a way-cool photo she took of a basketball on here somewhere, but I'm too lazy to find it. I'll share it later...there will be much more blogation about basketball in the near future, I'm sure.
Then....I might get to snooze for a few hours before hitting the ground running again. Double woot!
Happy Almost-Friday, Friends!

on rainy days, at least you get to use an umbrella and wear cute rain boops! There's something about umbrellas that intrigue me. I bet I have 100 photos saved on my computer that are based on them, and I have a huge poster that is framed that now hangs on Kate's wall. It used to be in my classroom.
It's funny that I get excited about umbrellas, because I rarely ever use one. Reason being: I always seem to get wetter WITH one than without. But something about them is a little mysterious, somewhat cheerful, and definitely pleasing to my eye.
You can see my umbrella above...not my favorite, but on clearance at Target so it became mine....what's your umbrella look like?
Happy (rainy) Tuesday!

Anywho....we were in the mountains. You got that part, right? And in the mountains, one has to shop all the quaint little stores and boutiques, right? And in one of those little places, I ran across an el-cheapo bracelet that was all of a buck, I think, and I *HAD* to have it. This is what it says: As iron sharpens iron, so man sharpens another. Pretty powerful words, aren't they? This reminded me of the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. And simply stated, that is my Golden Rule...only...yeah....simpler. "Be nice."
So, on this Veterans Day, I will encourage you to be nice to a Veteran. Pick up the phone and call them. Tell them thank you (another very important rule) for all that they have done for you and your family, for your country, and for your freedom. Know more than one? Call them all. Know someone in the military now? Tell them thank you, too. You can never say thank you too much, you know.
Thank you for reading this post, dear reader. :)
Happy Thursday, all!
PS...that photo up there was taken by yours truly whilst shopping on the afore-mentioned day. Wow, who knew I could post two photos in a row that I knew where they came from? Not I!

Ok, like always, I rotated the photo, but alas! Blogger hates me. Isn't she the cutest? One of the fun things that has happened to me over the last year is that I have met tons of new people. A lot of the people I have met are some that I knew existed, and I may have even known their names, or who they were related to...but I didn't *know* them. Others, I've had the pleasure of meeting because my life took a different turn and I have been at places to have the opportunity to meet others that perhaps I never would have had if my life had stayed on the same track it was on. Heather and Jacob, parents of cute lil Amia up there are among those I have met and love! I felt very honored to get to create some fun overalls for her to wear for her first birthday party, farm animal style. Isn't she adorable? She really makes those overalls look cute, doesn't she? :)

Soooo....Abby's not got her groove back exactly yet. It's been a very busy week! (This is a good thing!!!) I'm just now, at 11:20, finishing the things that absolutely *must* be done in order for tomorrow to happen.....and the list for the rest is very very long. So much to do, so little time. I do love that I had three "Wednesdays" this week...and I get three of them next week, too. It feels really good to dress up, except for the part where I can't fit in any of my clothes and my feet ache because they are not used to wearing shoes. This, too, shall pass!!!!!
Today is my sister's birthday....the one who so very graciously reminds me to blog when it's 11:00 and i haven't done it yet....thanks, Sister!!!!! :) I hope your day was the bestest, and I look forward to getting to spend time with you SOON. It's been farrrrr too long. (I know you already know this.) I love you, Sister!!
It was really nice to be around people today. Dare I say it makes me miss my front lobby? Naw...because then I wouldn't have made my new friend and wouldn't get to sift my fingers through jewels for something that is wrongly labeled "work".
And just in case you ever needed to know....the thing that flaps its wings and watches over you from the sky is an "AnGEL". The thing that can be either Right, Obtuse, or Acute is an "AnGLE". There IS a different, folks. Just in case you ever wondered......

I had a good discussion yesterday with a very good friend about Divine Intervention, and this morning, perusing my saved photos (I have no idea where this one came from, as per the norm.) I saw this cute one with the word HOPE and it made me think about my favorite verse....so here it is.
I know that I cannot list, if I tried for a very long time, all the things I KNOW have been intervened for me by God's hand, and I am also very positive there are equally as many things, if not more, that I will never even know were intervened by Him to keep me and those I love safe and protected and taken care of so that we could have hope and a future. I'm so very thankful to live as a child of a loving and caring God.
Stop today and say a quick prayer of thanks for your life today; it's a short thing, no matter how you work it, so live it awake and to the fullest...help others, smile, give a little love and kindness to someone today...perhaps even someone who is the last one you would like to be kind to...smile at them....at the very least, it will confuse them, and THAT, my friends, will make YOUR day more than theirs. :)
Happy Thursday, all.
