|Niece and Sis-in-law|
when the strippers showed up?
The week began with our niece's bridal shower and engagement party. It was nice to see her all happy and to meet Mr. Wonderful.
I'd signed up again this summer for free bowling, and we finally went a couple of times this week. Meego's getting pretty good. I'm... bowling too.
I got a much needed haircut this week. Add some increased humidity to the fact that I was already due for a shearing, and it wasn't pretty. It's a bit shorter than usual, but really, I was nearly ready to tell the stylist to just give me a G.I. Jane for some relief. Here are the before and afters:
But I am thankful for the humidity, such a treat here in summertime. We got some decent rains this week. Unfortunately for the people who live "downstream" from the burn scar, it's an absolute mess with the flash flooding. It's like a flood of cold thick tar, rushing in from the charred hillside into these people's streets and homes. The upside is... well... rain.
I already mentioned the fire at "home". Since that big rain, the updates have dwindled. It's a no-news-is-good-news mode now. A photo of the peak yesterday:
We're trying to be frugal while still enjoying summer break this year. What with three of us in college now, and me working less hours. We've had a few game nights. I've relearned Yahtzee, and last night we Scrabbled. I won.
Yay me. It's probably the hair.
