A couple weeks ago I started searching online for the perfect
hairstyle. It was the beginning of a new year and I wanted something different. The problem is my hair is not normal to begin with so I didn’t have a lot of choices. But thankfully I found the perfect hairstyle and was thrilled when the stylist said she could do it. I walked out looking like a million bucks but the next day when I had to style it myself I looked like hell. I figured maybe it would take me some time to get used to styling it but so far it’s been over a week and it still looks awful.
It was supposed to look like this:
one day I will be lucky enough to have my old, bad hair back. You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. I need a hat. Rock on.
The mailman is going to absolutely hate my guts in a couple of weeks. Last night I got online and ordered fifty-five FREE catalogs! It all started with looking for seed catalogs. I love looking at the pictures, circling my favorites and plotting and planning my gardens for the spring. There aren’t many things in this world that are free anymore and because they are something I look forward to and enjoy, I consider it a double bonus. But like I said, the mailman is going to hate my guts.
Did you hear about the couple in Orlando Florida who will be fined $500 per day for having a garden? They have a veggie garden in their front yard and the city doesn’t like it at all. They’ve been warned that if they don’t get rid of it, they will receive some hefty fines. The city prefers people have grass in their front yards.
When I first heard the story I thought that maybe it would look really bad from a neighborhood perspective but I saw a picture of the house and
garden and the homeowners did a great job of making it look more like
landscaping than a garden plot. The home owner’s goal was to reduce their carbon footprint.
But I guess once again it’s about breaking the rules. These people knew what they were getting into and decided their wants and needs outweighed everyone else’s. They’ve been given fair warning and are going to refuse to get rid of the garden anyway.
It will be interesting to see where this goes. Five hundred dollars per day is huge. Maybe they’ll have to set up a stand and start selling their vegetables. Or better yet, why don’t they move to the country?
