It was another hot day in Sacramento. It was over 100 on our outside temp gauge.
I've been needing to get a hair cut so this morning I had an 11 am appointment with Brent. He has gone back to the salon he first worked at. Its in Granite Bay so it was a little farther to drive. He cut, I think, at least 2 inches off. My hair had gotten quite long and I was wearing it pulled back in a pony tail or held with a barrette. He also put some low lights in, blending the gray into the rest of my hair. Surprisely enough, I have very little gray. It was mostly at my temples. I told him I've been letting my hair dry naturally instead of blowing it dry so that's what he did too. He dried some of it while he scrunched it up. I have natural curls and waves so it was all curly and wavey. The length is now just below my ears. I think I'm going to like it and it will be so easy to take care of.
After I got home, I worked on another card swap and then left home about 5:15 pm to go down to The Paper Garden, my local Stamp Store, for a card class. It was an hour class and we made 3 really cute, simple cards. This weekend The Paper Garden is celebrating its 4th anniversary so Linda Carnell who owns AMuse Art Stamps in Seattle came down for the weekend. She taught tonight's class and then is teaching a couple of projects tomorrow.
This past Tuesday I had lunch with friends, Stan and Donna Warehime. We all went to church together and were neighbors. Donna and I worked together in ministry and are the best of friends. Stan retired from driving trucks with Raley's, a local grocery chain. When he did that, they sold their house here and moved to southeast Missouri. They found a town on the internet that was for sale. It had a general store, post office, hardware store and feed store. It was a lot of work for just the two of them and the winters really got to them. So they sold everything and moved to Mesa, AZ. Stan has a couple of brothers in the area. They are loving being in Arizona and have been busy fixing up the house they bought.
Personally, I don't know why anyone would want to live in Arizona. It is just too HOT for me...110 in the shade is not for me. :-)
Donna's family had a reunion up in Oroville so they came out for that. They were here in June for a granddaughter's college graduation. We didn't get to see them on that trip so Donna was determined to get together this trip. I met them at The Golden Corral. We got there at 11:30 am and didn't walk out until after 2 pm. Donna and I don't know when to stop yakking. Stan is quite a talker too...anyway we had a nice visit. They'll be back in town in December. I think they are headed back to Arizona this weekend.
