Sunday, Sunday

July 12th, 2020 at 07:01 pm

We had quite the storm last night -- high winds, hail, rain, all in a matter of minutes. Due to the storms, many were without power in our area. We were fortunate that ours only flickered a couple of times, but just a couple of streets over, they were without power for hours. DH was absolutely worried about his garden. I think most of it fared well.

We went to church. Some could not make it due to the storm damage. One couple was blocked in their own place due to a fallen tree. I guess some of the streets were blocked and people had to go around or stay home. We are only having a limited number of people attend anyway, skipping every pew, have to use hand sanitizer when we go in, and wear masks throughout. Nevertheless, it is wonderful to be able to worship in our sanctuary and visit from a distance.

DH is out cleaning up some of the storm debris. Lots of leaves were torn from trees. Some leaves are from trees that are not ours so we wonder how far they came from.

I continue to make softer foods for DH to eat as he awaits having a root canal the 27th. We had chili last night. I made a big pot and after he said, we can just have it again tomorrow night -- this worked great. Fine with me. I'm using tomatoes I canned last year and onions and herbs form the yard. Figure it has to be fairly healthy with all the vegetables.

Our garbage bill went up a dollar. They had been warning us the prices would probably go up so I was pleased it was only a dollar. This is for every two months so I guess 50 cents a month. It seems like everything else has risen and in far greater leaps than this.

It's going to be a busy week for us. I'm seeing the allergist for my yearly checkup and we have hair cuts scheduled. This is our second hair cut since our state has allowed it. I'm sure the stylists and barbers are happy to be making money again. I'm not a person who spends a lot of time my hair and since we have to wear masks, my gal suggested we do something very simple because the mask would probably negate anything I would do as far as straightening my hair. For awhile I didn't do anything since we didn't go anywhere.

Hope you have a good week.

    I am finally scheduled for a hair cut and color on Tuesday. I haven't been since March and I am feeling a bit shaggy! My salon is strictly adhering to all the required safety measures, (reduced staff and customers, masks, sanitizing etc.) so I feel OK about finally going.

    We got our hair cut. It was very safe. I was so thankful. I made hash of my husband's hair the last time I gave w him a trim, and I was so glad she could fix it!

    I don't think we got those storms -- or, if so, I slept through them! I'm still holding out on getting a haircut. I feel like this is an opportunity to really grow it out and decide if I want something different.

    That's great that your church has opened! I have my first hair appointment (since the first week of March) on Wednesday this week. I've broken the news to my stylist that I'll be going grey.

    I would love to get my hair cut at Great Clips, where I usually go. My hair's getting pretty long, but I remember how close they have to be to you and you can feel the breath of someone on you as you get your hair cut. So I've stayed away.
