Desert bound

This past weekend we headed out to the desert for a mozey. First to Julian, then to Anza Borrego. The sky was clear and beautiful...but there is nothing in Anza Borrego. We drove around the little turnabout, and promptly left. If there is something cool that we needed to see, I unfortunately did not do sufficient research to find what that is. I would have been fine, except for the windy mountain roads that made me so nauseous. So, alrighty then!

Growing out the grey

When you decide to let your grey hair grow out, the only real approach is cutting the length to help speed the dark ends in meeting the silver that's sprouting from your scalp! I'm going in for a bob on Weds., with slight layering at the ends...and some more lowlights to lessen the skunkiness of it all! Not an easy process... Supposedly it takes about a year to fully grow out. It can't come soon enough.

Below this pic is the silver-haired goddess, Sarah Harris. So stylish...of course with her long legs and lithe frame, green hair would look good! This article talks all about her decision to stay grey:

can't fault that. #SarahHarris keeping it simple with her LV booties in Paris.

Chanel, take me away

Karl, in all his regalia. Flanked by Stella Tennant. Love her.
The clothes, the fabrics, the table decorations, the pearls on the pockets! Pure gorgeousness: Chanel style.

Getting neat

Two angels descended on my bedroom and made it all neat and organized! Poof! Very inspiring/motivating to do more in the rest of the house. I am hunting a Dymo Labelmaker as we speak. They were great a categorizing the chaos into like batches.

They dropped down from this cloud: 

Blogger is not cooperating with me on formatting. However, the blurry picture is all me. :)

I feel like I've gotten so picky in my older age. What about you? Picky about stuff? I was just thinking about some of my picky pet peeves today...

1. I have to use a certain keyboard, now that I've worked on a laptop for the last year. Just got the Dell KM714 and I love it! It's very Apple-like.
2. I have to have a clean cut at the top of a bag of chips. A ragged, torn open bag makes me crazy.
3. The bed has to be sort of made before I get in it at night. It can stay unmade all day, but it has to be organized and fluffed before I jump in to sleep at night.
4. Updated after my walk today: If you're going to put pumpkins on your porch, remove the stickers!

Now that I'm actually writing the list, I can't think of many. I guess I was just feeling picky enough to list this out, but hey, maybe I'm not so picky after all. I'm sure there are so many more. I'm sure James could come add about 10 items to the list...he's always hearing my kvetching about one thing or another.

And on that note, happy Fall!

Pink sky, great witch, and magical realism

Lately, we've had the most beautiful pink skies, with the coolest cloud formations. The second pic is the greatest witch ever, isn't she? And the book, by Neil Gaiman, was so great: a perfect, pre-Halloween read.
