No matter how I try, getting this done weekly is beyond me. Oh, well, let’s start, shall we?

Here in the Great Atlantic Northeast, we are facing hot, humid weather. If you get frizz from humidity, how do you deal with it?
I’ve been waiting for quite some time for a Keratin Express treatment but my daughter hasn’t found the time for me! The greyer I get the curlier I get so I just let my hair dry naturally.

Getting your hair cut/styled – drudgery or enjoyment?
As my niece is my stylist, it is a sheer joy. She is such a great person and I love spending time with her. Also, her children, three and two years old, get to know their dear Auntie g!

This one may seem strange but I want to know: I read that, in some places, it was unusual, when someone dies, to have an open casket at the wake. Where you live, do you have wakes? Open casket or closed? Do you have a repast (meal for those who join you in mourning) after the burial?
Unless the deceased was disfigured by an accident or whatever, we have open casket although cremation is becoming more and more popular with a memorial service instead of a wake and funeral. We do have a repast either at a restaurant or at home where it is usually catered. If the memorial service is at my church, and some other churches, a number of people will cook and serve the people who attend.

This week, I saw the movie “Brave” which takes place in Scotland. I love, love, love Scottish, Irish and English accents. I also love the Kenyan accent. Is there an accent you love to hear?

Himself and I are trying to figure out where to retire. Where we live is simply too expensive. Tell me where you think we out to go and why.

Life is never boring around here and there is rarely a lack of things to do. As I type this, I am waiting for my mother-in-lve to finish having her hair done at the beauty parlor. She is no longer driving and we, my brother-in-law, husband and I take turns driving her where she needs to go. I guess that would be called the “circle of life.” Mom took care of us all these years and now it is time to help her.

Any ideas on what to do with Isabella in this heat? We will probably go to the library this afternoon. They have a nice children’s room with toys and it seems to be the place to be on hot days. Still, I would like to find somewhere else that is cheap or free.

The weekend is upon us. Any plans? The only thing I know we are doing is praying for missionaries in what we call “creative access” countries (those countries which do not allow missionaries) with friends. Other than that, we will see.

Bless you, g

  1. My granddaughters loved to play with clay, I had the Klutz book about clay, which will give you lots of ideas; bugs, jewlery, etc. I used Sculpy as it doesn’t crumble and it becomes unbreakable when baked. One granddaughter made every bug in the book and was so pleased with herself. I imagine you will join in with clay play, as there is so much to do with it. It is best to have a pasta machine to soften the clay, and you can pick one up at a garage sale. (Our town sale, btw, is July 14) I bet you will be hooked.

    We are staying here because our grandkids are here. And we don’t do well in hot and humid places.

    We have only one plan for the weekend and you will laugh. We have emptied our basement, (did you know there is a carpet down there?), and I am slowly sorting out: sell, keep, donate, throw away. Really! You must come and see.

  2. To answer all your questions, I use Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. It makes your hair a bit shiny but it keeps the frizz away. I use it year round. And a small bottle lasts forever because it only takes a little bit.

    Getting my hair done is an enjoyment for me because my hairstylist is a very good friend. We became friends over the years as she started doing my hair in 1999….Wow! I can’t believe it’s been that long.

    We have visitation with open caskets. And sometimes there is a meal afterwards usually at the church.

    I love Australian accents.

    You should probably head west because the cost of living is lower. Albuquerque, NM would be great. It doesn’t get too hot there. And I know you aren’t a hot weather person. It is considered high desert climate. If I didn’t have my sites on Hawaii, I would live in Albuquerque. You could also explore living in the Midwest.

    Isabella in the heat. How about bowling?

    Plans for the weekend? Relax…sleep in on Saturday. Go out to dinner with Vicki on Saturday night in Frederick which is about 40 minutes away. We will have plenty of time to visit. And then go to my new Women’s Bible study group on Sunday evening.
