Did anyone take notice of the Super Moon last weekend? Oh, how I wished for a zoom lens for my camera! We did set up a tripod and managed to get this little picture.
I saw so many spectacular shots taken by people who actually know what they're doing AND have the equipment to match. One was shot down by the water in Newport Beach with the moon huge and hanging over the water. Amazing. As I've probably said before, I love all things star and night sky related. That moon really was lovely - until the fog rolled in, and you couldn't see it anymore.
We have two of our little ones having birthdays this month. Matthew turned 5 last Friday. He told his dad he wanted to go to Hawaii for his birthday, but he looks pretty content to be taken out to breakfast with his family.
L and I sent him a rocket that shoots a car out (he loves it) and a kickboard with a shark's face on it to use at the pool this summer. I'm looking forward to some playtime with this happy boy in a month or so.
Saturday Mia turns 7. Right now she's down in Kino Bay in Mexico with her dad's entire family. It's an annual trip for them - tons of cousins, aunts, uncles, a pool, and the ocean. What could be more fun than that? She'll be back in Arizona on her birthday and I'll get to talk to her then, hopefully. Telling tales of running wild with cousins, and playing every day on a beautiful beach. I'm sure Massachusetts seemed very far away this week.
And then I had my big adventure in hair color. I had the opportunity to be one of the "hair models" for a seminar at my salon for a new color technique. I basically gave them carte blanche. It's only color. It can be redone, undone, done over. And what I got was.... RED ...
Please ignore all of the flotsam and jetsam in my office. It's hard to tell from this picture just how red it really is. In the daylight it really does look a lot like this, but when indoor lighting hits it, it's really... bright. Mom did not like it. She is easily startled by new looks, and this definitely grabbed her attention. Oh well - it's on MY head, after all, and I actually do like it. It's growing on me. And L likes it. It's always good to shake things up every now and then. Keeps boredom at bay. And this hair color is anything but ho hum. It's spicy. Caliente. And if, ultimately, I get tired of it? That's what hair color is for, my friends - for change.
