Friday Mishmash

While we were in Orlando for a week, we had a couple friends helping out with our pets.  Diane came over at lunchtime to let Paco out for a potty break, and one day, he apparently threw a temper tantrum and refused to leave Jeff's closet.  She said she couldn't cajole him out for anything - I mean, really Paco, was that necessary?  Here's the picture she sent me:
Here's what a big baby looks like...

Luckily that was the only day he acted like his world had ended; the rest of the time he interacted with everyone.

********************

Speaking of pets, I missed a kitty rescue last week!  My running peeps were on their Saturday run when they came across a tiny orange kitty in a wooded area, and they managed to rescue him:
Awww!  What a tiny little guy!
JimmyMEOW was called to bring a box for the kitty, but that didn't last long - the kitty was a little cuddle buddy.
The rescue squad - Karen, Andi, Jimmy, Diane, and Cary.

You'd think that Jimmymeow would have been the one to end up with the kitty, based on how much he was holding him, but Andi ended up being the one to take him home.  I'm sad that I missed out on the kitty rescue fun, but it was probably for the best, as I am a sucker for orange kittens and I do not need any more pets.

Yesterday while volunteering at the gift shop, Rosalie and I decided to accessorize a mannequin; we ended up going with a small purse that went with the dress she was wearing, and added two gold necklaces in different lengths.  Were we ever pleased when not 30 minutes later, a customer took interest in what we'd done and ended up buying both of the necklaces off the display!  So we redressed her, and while we were choosing new jewelry, Kendall came in and said we needed to name her, as we kept calling her "the lady" - without missing a beat, Rosalie and I shouted out names at the same time.  I said Beverly, while she said Methuselah.  Methuselah??  I'm not saying Beverly is a real winner, but I think it beats Methuselah, LOL!

I got my hair cut and went a little shorter, and even moved the part - OOH, THE EXCITEMENT!  I know.  But I said that because it's funny how I can be feeling just meh about myself, and usually that coincides with it being time for a cut and highlight appointment.  Amazing how much that impacts my well-being - and while I can't quite duplicate the curling iron waves that my hairdresser put in, I am pretty happy with my new style:
 All set for summer!

I'm looking forward to running with my fellow renegades tomorrow - it's been two weeks since we've been home to run with them, so it will be nice to catch up with everyone.

Have a great weekend!

  2. Paco kills me dead. That dog is something else! Speaking of rescues, and dogs, this morning on my run a teeny tiny little dog started running with me. I think it was a full grown shitzu but they can be small. Anyway, it was so cute I actually had the thought that if it followed me all the way home (about 1/4 mile), we were getting a dog lol! But it stopped as I turned a corner so still no pets lol.

    Your hair is so pretty! I can't wait to be my summer blonde self again (10 more days).

  3. Your hair is GORGEOUS! The color, the style. It all looks fresh, and compliments your face so well.

    I love orange kitties too! I'm glad your group had soft hearts and rescued him!

    1. Thanks! I am really loving my new hair style/color. :)

      Awww, the Queen would have been good for Paco...they could have bonded over their owners abandoning them for no good reason. ;)

  4. That story about Paco is hilarious! I just love dogs and their personalities. I took Cocoa to the groomer this morning and when we walked in, she was like "oh no" and pulled me towards the door. She's only 20# but she is a beast.

    Your hair looks great! I flipped my part a few months ago because I'm more gray on one side of my head than the other--I wanted at least one extra week before I get my roots touched up...

  7. Your cut and style looks FAB! I've been wondering if I should do some highlights - for a pick me up, like you said!

  10. Love the new do.

    I definitely have a weakness for kittens. I would have been tempted.

  11. Good thing I wasn't there or I would have ended up with little ginger kitty! :D

  12. Love the hair!

    Bella is everybody's friend, don't think she would ever do that. I do feel sorry for Paco, he misses you so much when you are away. He sure is mommy's dog.

    Such a sweet kitten, glad he/she found a loving home.
