My Thursday evening plans included a friend I haven't seen in ages coming over to visit, then us walking to dinner at a restaurant about 1.5 miles from my house. The walk was going to serve as my "exercise " for the day and my Friday blog post was going to be a review of the restaurant. Perfect! My exercise, a blog post, and dinner all in one.
But she cancelled due to doggie troubles. So I made the best of my free time and checked a few things off my to do list.
Harvested the last of my lettuce....
|Thank you, daylight savings, for the beautiful light in my kitchen at 6:30 PM.|
It wasn't as pretty as my first round of harvest. Good timing, though, because since my dinner plans were canceled and I was out of spring mix, I needed something to eat! It was immediately used for a salad.
I also need the planter which was housing my lettuce, because soon I will have sprouted basil seeds to transplant. The tiny little seeds that have been patiently waiting in paper packets finally made it into some soil.
I planted 2 varieties: genovese
A pineapple that had been sitting on my counter for over a week was finally cut into pieces and enjoyed. It was good, but not as sweet as I was craving.
My evening in the kitchen was rounded out by making another large batch of sweet potato chips.
I also painted my toes and cut my hair. Yes, you read that correctly, I cut my own hair for the first time. It was looking very scraggly and I loathe making an appointment and paying to have it cut. (I'd rather spend the money on a new dress.) So naturally, I turned to google. "how to cut my own hair." After watching a few you tube videos, I ultimately settled on this guide. I figured if it turned out awful, I'd just go have it fixed by a professional tomorrow. It's long enough that I could just have my mistake cut off. How did it turn out? I don't really know yet, because I haven't fixed it, but there sure are a lot of layers! I'll post a picture soon.
What would you do with a free afternoon?
Have ever cut your own hair? Do you think I'm crazy for trying it?
