Hope everyone's weekend went well. My was rather hot. It was in the mid-90's. Not good. At least it wasn't humid. We did the usual shopping for groceries and kitty stuffs. I had a 15% off coupon from Sally's Beauty Supply so I took advantage of it. I bought a ton of hair dye and some bleach I'm thinking of adding a few highlights to my hair. By the way, getting my hair cut in the Middy worked out great. I styled my hair this weekend and it really did help a lot. The ends of my hair aren't frizzy anymore and it was a lot easier to style too. I really like bumper bangs. Their easy and lend themselves to lots of different hairstyles. I didn't get photos of the back simply because I'm not that good at taking photos of myself. Believe it or not, I'm not wearing a rat in my bangs. The way I curl it keeps it shape really well. I just need to learn to hide the bobby pins better.
So this morning around 3 am or so there was a HUGE clash of thunder. It woke me up from an awesome Dr. Who dream (David Tennant). Yeah. I think I've official became a Dr. Who fan girl. Dreaming about the man and all. Matt Smith is a good Dr. Who there's something about David Tennant that I like better. Okay so the thunder woke me up and then it started to pour rain. Like torrents of it. Bad enough that there was a flash flood warning. We then got woken up again around 7 am by another huge clash of thunder. At that point we decided to get up and take down his antenna. Although it was only 15 minutes earlier than our usual wake up time, I felt really tired and head achey. It hailed around 8:30 and I had to rush to get my strawberry plants out of the back patio.
Yesterday I went into one of my cleaning itches. I cleaned the kitchen and both the bathrooms. Loaded the dishwasher and cleaned the litter box. I figured that if I clean it when I get the itch to do it then I'll have less housework later during the week.Not that I have that much housework but it's nice to have less.
An update on my vintage sewing table. I did a lot of work on it last week. I think a bit much because I was hurting the day after. It was pretty easy to resurface the wood. Some areas were easier than other. Next I need to sand the legs. After that, I need to sand the wood using a finer grit to get rid of the sanding marks. Once that's done I'll have do decided is I want to stain it or paint it. I'm leaning towards staining it. I love the look of natural wood grain.
Last week I made a few things. I haven't gotten around to fixing the dress. I'm trying to figure it out. I really don't want to completely redo the dress. My mom bought me a pair of sunglasses when she was visiting. I really like the pair and wanted to make a case for them so they wouldn't get scratched.
I made the case out of some cotton and cotton batting. I quilted it too so that It would be more stable. I;m really proud of the wait it turned out. It's super cute and really easy to get in and out of it.
I'll leave you few pictures of new cigarette case/ wallet and Zippo lighter the hubs got me a few years ago. I randomly will smoke a clove cigarette when we're out gambling. That's it. I don't smoke in the house or anywhere else besides casinos. We do smoke the hooka every once in a while like four times a year. It's really fun but it takes way too long light.
Well I hope everyone is having a great day. Until next time, Ta!
