I went and got my hair cut Thursday (9/17) before I had to leave to go book club meeting back in Houston. I was in the chair and I said let's continue to embrace the gray and cut 2-3" off. My Stylist Gene asked if I was sure and he showed me how much he was gonna cut off. I decided what the hell .... Let's Cut off 4". It will grow back. Again he asked if I was sure and I said go for it and he did. Not sorry at all.
We left her house between 4:30 & 5 to drive to the Spanish Flower Mexican Restaurant on I-45. Tonight was one of the largest turn outs we've had in a while. We were discussing the book Bluebird Bluebird by Attica Locke. This was quite a drive but the WTS Book Club was established in 1997. We've been together quite a while so it's hard to just leave my friends and good conversation just because I moved to the country. We normally only meet every other month but it's not in stone so sometimes they're closer together.
The story is based in East Texas and the main character is a Texas Ranger. There has been 2 murders in the small town of Lark. Darren, the Texas Ranger is intrigued and thinks the murders might have been racial motivated. It was a great book and provided lots of conversation. Of course this group never has a problem talking. Love'em all.
After the meeting we drove back to Pamela's and I spent the night since I had a doctor's appointment the next morning. I had an MRI on my left hip area to see if the could determine what is causing the pain I every morning for a couple hours after I wake up.
So the doctor says the tendon looks fine so my next step is get a cortisone shot but they'll need to ultra sound to make sure they don't hit the sciatic nerve. That would be nice. So now I have to wait another week for the doctor that can give that shot. Oh well what's a few more days. Now to go pick up my groceries and my bag and machine from Pamela's house and head back to the farm.
It was date night (Friday 9/18). We had tickets to see Josh and Kristi Grider at the Old Post Office in Caldwell. We arrived early so we decided to walk around the corner to the Funky Junky to see what it's all about. They have a small antique shop with an outdoor area. They had live music that night and they also served food and beer. We hung there for a while and had a couple beers. The owners were super friendly. Would you believe if I sad they told me I was an Angel? LOL I didn't think so.The Halo is pretty tarnished trust me.
But it was getting close to 7:30 and we wanted to place our food order and be done eating by the time the music started. Plus we wanted to get a good table and we did. So we walked back around the corner to the Old Post Office. David wanted to try they're jalapeno grill fish and I got the salmon. The food was tasty. I will say the broccoli could have cooked just a minute longer but it had a good flavor. Next time we'll try the burgers. Josh and Kristi Grider were really good. We really enjoyed their music. They even had their 10 or 11 year old son come up and play the guitar and sing. He was pretty good too.
Saturday was a big day (9/19). My niece Shelby was getting married. It was gonna be a drive. Her wedding was in Seabrook which was a 2 hours and about 45 minutes away but we can't miss her wedding. She was beautiful. The wedding was at the The Admiral over Sam's boat. It's a really nice venue. She and her new husband Jorge Torres make a cute couple.
At the beginning of the night my hair was all fluffy but by 8 it was just curled. No fluff. But I'm really liking my new cut.
These girls are so beautiful.

I noticed that I was on a sort of roll in my completed quilting projects but I slowed down dang it. I've completed 6 quilts this year so far and I'm working on one now that's not hard but several small pieces to sew back together. And why is it we cut up a perfectly good and beautiful piece of fabric into little shapes to sew it back together you ask... To make it new and be creative.. I need to get back to it.
Until next post...There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved
