Busyness Catching Up To Me
After so much fun this week, I'm one tired puppy today, working on a migraine and feeling a bit off. I'm settling down for an afternoon nap because tomorrow & Saturday will also be busy, and also because we'd like to go to a live Latin jazz event tonight. I'm out of spoons, so need to replenish and recharge so I have enough oomph to get me through the next couple of days.
Da feets also do not appreciate all the busyness. Today is mostly an R&R day. Did some minimal chores this morning. It's supposed to storm, so the jazz event may get cancelled.
Yesterday I went to the fair again. Originally I wasn't going to because my feet were a lot worse yesterday, but I changed my mind at the last minute and went to the fairgrounds solo because hubs was already there to support Troy in the Peoria's Got Talent competition. (He did not make it to the final round.) That's why I went--to support Troy and also Jerry, who was at the magician's booth performing last night. I caught his last show (he & Troy were performing at the same time) and a bit of his first, after watching Troy. Both did a terrific job! Jerry made me a little dog out of Mardi Gras beads--same principle as balloon animals. It's adorable! Jerry & his wife are super sweet. They are in their 70s, both cancer survivors and Jerry is a retired pastor.
I got two of the hair pretties for dance & just summer in general because I can put my hair up in a bun or braid with them. That's mostly how I've gone about life this summer--hair in a messy bun or braids. Tomorrow will be a definite self-care day, as I will also be getting a facial along with the hair cut & color. I'm undecided as to what to do with my hair, so if the stylist is game, I think I'll ask her to do whatever she feels like so long as I can still put my hair up in a pony tail. Something with long or no layers and at least shoulder length hair.
