Miscellaneous Musings

It’s raining this morning, also occasional lightening and thunder and the current temperature is 56 degrees. I am still not accustomed to thunder and lightening in December. Temps are predicted to drop into the 30’s tonight and possibly some snow Christmas Eve or Christmas. Oklahoma weather fluctuates more than any place I’ve lived before. I’m not complaining, just making an observation.

I’m trying to convince myself to make cookies and candy today, we’ll see if that happens. I’m sure you are impressed with my enthusiasm. 🙂

I had a hair appointment yesterday; it was time for some “store bought curls”. While I was getting my hair done I couldn’t help observing a few of the other clients. Two women were getting highlights and haircuts, and then a man came in and said, “Cut it off, use a number 2 all over”. His stylist questioned him several times, asking him if he was sure he wanted to go that short. He was confident and assured her that is what he wanted. I was impressed and somewhat envious at the same time. He knew exactly what he wanted and how he wanted it, no looking through books or contemplating a new style. She finally went to work on him and in less than 10 minutes she was finished. It looked great and she even trimmed his eyebrows. He paid her, put his cap on and left. Now I ask you, why can’t it be that simple for women? Are all guys that confident when it comes to getting a haircut?

I recently finished reading The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck. I loved the story and found myself crying through several parts of it. I really enjoy reading and have read several books this year. I’m always open to suggestions so feel free to recommend ones you have enjoyed.

Until next time…hope you have a good one!

The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Ps 126:3

    We used to do all that Christmas cooking … fudge, cakes, pies, cookies. Sunday night we did have the grandchildren over so Jackson could make sugar cookies with “Grandmaw” while the twins basically took over the floor. It’s amazing how 12-month old babies can be everywhere all at once!

    Years ago the Wife and I read two series of books by Dee Henderson. The O’Malley Family series and the Uncommon Heroes series. Both were very good.

    So Greg, do you think we are getting old or is it just time to let the younger generation take over? Actually my girls are very good cooks and a couple of them really have stepped in cooking great holiday meals and all the goodies for the past few years for their families and in-laws. I’m very proud of them, and I especially am honored when they still call me for recipes of family favorites.

    Thanks for the book recommendations too, I will have some great books to check out next year.

    Janice, I just emailed Grant and asked him to pick that book up for me. I’m also planning to read Sarah Palin’s book “Going Rogue” and Dick Morris’ “Catastrophe.” I’ll let you know how they are…not sure what you look for in a book though.

    Olivia, I would like to read Sarah Palin’s book too. I have a broad range of books I like to read, as long as they aren’t trashy or boring. Same thing with music, I like all kinds except Hip-Hop or Rap. I definitely do not care for those. I would loan you the Christmas Sweater but I borrowed it from Robert. Perhaps you could borrow it from him too. 🙂

    I’ve often wondered the same thing about our hair! And what about “getting ready” to go somewhere? All they have to do is shower, run a brush through their hair (or put on a cap) and their clothes and their ready. You know without me reciting it what it takes for US to be ready!

    If you’ve never read any of Debbie Macomber’s books, I recommend them. She has a series where the titles are all street addresses. They are continuing stories about the same people and takes place mostly in “Cedar Cove.” I think it’s Washington but might be Oregon; can’t remember for sure. A new one comes out every fall. She also does some Christmas books.

    I hear you Judy, just doesn’t seem balanced does it? I guess the man has to always be ready for the hunt. Can you just imagine if dinner showed up outside the cave and he said, “I can’t go out looking like this!” LOL
    I will have to check out Macomber’s books. Sound like something I would like.
