Stand up comedy that is. My kid has been cracking me up lately. I tried to write down some of the things she’s said lately, but they didn’t translate so well to the pages of this blog. Maybe I’ll try again later. Let’s just say that the subjects of her latest routines have included – the Holy Ghost, refreshing baths, cauliflower and being cold. Pure hilarity I tell ya! Wish I had Da Momma’s way with words so that I could actually share some of Lovegirl’s “Lovies” with you!
I start my cake decorating class on Monday, and I’m so excited! I love to bake and am really thrilled at the prospect of being able to turn out more “professional” looking birthday and celebration cakes around the old homestead. My new coworkers will soon reap the benefits of my decorated “masterpieces” since there’s no way I’m going to bake and consume a cake a week on my own (with a little help from Smoochy and Lovegirl) while I decorate my way through the next four weeks.
Found a new blog that I am absolutely loving. All about beauty. Natural hair. Makeup. Bath products. Smell good, etc. etc. I’ve tried some of her recommendations on Lovegirl’s hair and so far, so good. Love, love, love the Suave Dragon Fruit kid’s shampoo/conditioner! Sites like this only serve to reinforce my determination to keep my and Lovegirl’s hair chemical free. I’m not even a makeup person, but Afrobella makes it all sound so simple and fun, that I’m seriously considering experimenting with some products at some point in the near future.
I think I’m the only person in America who was not that thrilled with the movie “Pursuit of Happynes.” Just too darn depressing for me. Yes, an uplifting story. Keep on keeping on and all that jazz. But really, just a little more “happyness” would’ve made this a better movie for me. Will Smith did a great job in the movie as did his son, but Smoochy and I both agreed, that for the cost of two movie tickets, a drink, and the babysitter we should’ve chosen something a bit . . . lighter. We just don’t get out alone all that much and we probably should’ve followed our first minds and seen “Stomp the Yard” instead. Was excited to see that there’s a Shrek III coming this summer.
Am still working my way through Zadie Smith’s “On Beauty.” I don’t really know what to say about it at this point. It definitely picked up after the first 100 pages as Jason said it would, but the jury (me) is still out on this one. I’ll let you know when I finish it.
Speaking of beauty, I think the process of waiting for my hair to lock up is going to frustrate me. Patience is definitely not something I’m often accused of. One of my main reasons for locking my hair is the “worry-free ness” of it all. Once it locks up, I won’t have to worry about being caught in the rain, going swimming, etc. My weekends, once spent in the beautician’s chair, will be mine! I know that I’ll have to wash, groom, etc.., don’t get me wrong, but I’m really looking forward to not having a great part of my life dictated by my hair. That, however, is once my hair locks. Right now, since it’s just twisted, I’m still rather dictated by my strands. I’m not going to be able to go back to spin class until my locks are established. Aaaargh! How am I supposed to keep up any real cardio with this newly imposed restriction? I guess I’ll start walking. Of course, I’ll have to walk for 4 hours just to get the benefits I was getting in one 45 minute spin class!
I guess that’s it for this go ’round. Peace, Love, Soul!
