In the morning, while painting my disaster nails, Symphony and I worked on a bunch of crafts. She made some perler beads and worked on some more Harry Potter felt flatties, and I started making a letter garland for her room (She asked for her name flanked by unicorns).
In the afternoon I had my hair appointment and Sym took the opportunity to play with my camera- she was particularly interested in this sink full of bubbles.
She took some self-portraits too, I had to crop this one because I had a bunch of brassieres haning to dry in the bathroom and I didn’t think the internet heeded to see that, haha.
My hair appointment was a success; my stylist didn’t give me grief for colouring and cutting my own hair (she even said I did a “pretty good” job on my bangs), and in addition to doing my highlights she also recoloured my blue, pink and purple streaks. The best part:
No more roots! The last time I had my highlights done was the end of January, so they were definitely due.
After my appointment I took Georgie down to the Emery Barnes dogpark, and after a series of increasingly irritated texts, voicemails and emails I managed to get Taylor to bring Kichou down as well. It took him a while to get back to me because he was playing Xbox with his headphones on for EIGHT HOURS and didn’t notice his phone ringing until it vibrated off his desk and fell on the floor.
Originally we were going to go out and see Source Code that evening, but I wasn’t really up for going out (apparently sitting for three hours getting your hair done is somehow exhausting? idek) so instead we went and had some dinner at Kadoya (Taylor got this weird bacon roll) and then watched Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure at home.
We woke up pretty early on Sunday and I decided we should take the dogs for a big walk. Unfortunately the Sun Run was going on, so we were cut off from the beach and it took me quite a while to figure out how to get around the runners. After our walk we went for brunch, and then even though it was sunny and gorgeous and a totally inappropriate day to be inside all afternoon, I’d promised Taylor we could finally go see Source Code. It was good, but I still kind of wish I’d been outside.
I did manage to convince Taylor to go to Art Knapp’s Urban Garden, the only nursery downtown with me so I could get some plants for my garden. Well, more like “garden.” It’s this space behind my house that is always all overgrown with horrible weeds (one of which I’m allergic to), hat I always SAY I’m going to make into a garden but I never do. Well, while we were away Sym’s stepmom cleared it all out for me so now I HAVE to plant something back there. Right now it’s not very lovely.
So far a just have some hosta bulbs and a little hydrangea (also pictured: an asparagus fern I’m going to use in a terrarium), but soon I’m going to buy some ferns, and my neighbor is giving me some fuchsias. I also found a hanging patio chair at Urban Barn that I’m dying to buy. I’ve wanted one for about ever and the only ones I’ve found have all been like, $1,000, but this one is only $500. AMAZING. I hope I can get it!
And if it all comes together the way I want…
DREAM BIG, ME. Anyway, that was my weekend, I hope you all had a good one too! Now it’s back to work. I’m really busy this week, but luckily it’s a short one (Good Friday and all).
