What a long, strange week it's been.

Let's go to the slightly wayback machine to last week when I was moaning about my hair. I did color it on Monday night with lot's of help from the wonder hubby. I mixed up the caca rouge, and Keith applied it to my hair. He also wrapped my head in cling wrap for me to keep the heat in, and the henna from getting all over everything. Here are some pictures.

Before :(

After :)

I have to admit I was kind of shocked to see the before picture. I'm a natural red head, and to see just how brown my hair has gotten was surprising. What I always see are the red highlights around my face (along with the gray hairs). The henna covered up all the grays and has made my hair look so much better.

So what else have I done this week?

I went to a U pick it farm yesterday with Gale yesterday. I now know exactly why those delicious raspberries cost so darn much. I picked a pint of them yesterday, followed by about 3.25 pounds of strawberries. I can appreciate the labor that goes into getting food from the field to the table. I shared the berries with Daphne, so I didn't have all of them to clean last night. What I did find was that some berries that looked so nice when I picked them had either gotten squished or too hot, for they were already mushy! They tasted good anyway.

Boy, don't you hate it when there was something you wanted to say or blog about, but when you open your mouth or sit in front of the computer - whoosh! it's gone. There was something else I wanted to share, but I sure can't remember it now.

This isn't it, but please keep Keith's dad in your thoughts and prayers. He's in the hospital with a couple of blood clots. Thank goodness he recognized the symptoms. They'll release him as soon as the medication levels get to a stable working amount.

I must admit it's been a long day, and I'm ready for an Agatha Christie and snoozing buddy. Here are two of them, but Scooter loses a few points for breaking formation.

Your hair color now looks the way I always remembered it (from 25 years ago, no less). It's a gorgeous and very natural looking red. I'm now going to have to check out Lush. Thanks for showing me another way to spend my money! :)

your hair looks fabulous.. I wish I could do stuff like that.. I have decided to go grey though.. at least for now.. actually Steve decided it.. because he does not like the harshness of dark died hair.. he like the natural better.. but i sure would love to accentuate the red highlights in my hair.. technically my hair is not true black.. its very deep brown with red highlights or auburn highlights.. I might do the highlight thing one day.. in the mean time I will just enjoy your hair color stories... ohh and I do hope Keiths Dad is okay!!
