Haircut ~ Green Eyes Chard ~ Elvis' Birthday

Good 34º foggy (what else) morning. Sigh........

Except for a splashing of sunshine on Wednesday, every single day has looked like this. It's depressing. Not only that, I feel as if it's added to my cranky attitude! So, I ordered  this light therapy device made by Phillips. It simulates real UV sunlight, it's compact, portable, with a rechargeable battery and carrying case. You only need to have it on 15-20 minutes, facing you.

It is recommended by doctors and has high ratings. Worth a try. It will be here Tuesday.

Yesterday I got my hair cut/colored. Leah is my beautician. She's wonderful, pretty, funny.....

What a sense of humor! She had Kyle, her little pooch, in the shop yesterday. So sweet.....

While I was there Nancy stopped in. She was coming by to see her sister-in-law, Judy, who I didn't even realize was there and she saw my car so brought me some of her FABULOUS biscotti! We made a date for cocktails at 4.
After the haircut I went to the health food store in town. Got some 100% total absorption Life Force vitamins

and a copy of Sharrie's 'alkaline diet'. She is a nurse and also has a Master's Degree in natural health care. Very interesting to talk to.

I went home, picked up a bottle of Green Eyes Chardonnay

("Green Eyes 2008 ChardonnayLoaded with green apple, melon, and tropical flavors with spectacular aroma and crisp finish. ")  and Maggie and we went to Nancy's. Skeeter, her little Jack Russell, was happy to see Maggie. Skeets is 3 and Maggs is 11, so Maggs wasn't as thrilled. LOL  Nancy and I had a good girl gab-fest for a couple of hours! She had a couple of snacks set out... one was "Raw Natural Crispy Kale Chips". Really good!  She gave me a bag and told me where the health food store was she got them at in Medford. Will pick up some more. They contain kale, zucchini, carrot, cashews, onion, coconut, lemon juice, ginger, cilantro, spices, and sea salt.

 Ok, so ... came home and had soup for dinner and a snuggy fire and watched TV.  Yawn....
