While it took 2 more phone calls in the morning,
my new hat was hand delivered today,
before my hair appointment.
I was really pleased with my new haircut.
I have naturally curly hair and with a little
finger curling and some product, and a diffuser,
it can curl nicely.
And it was sunny.
I saw flowering trees.
I also listened 2x to Motzart's requiem.
The special event is tomorrow.
To try to keep Pascha with me,
esp as I was away for all of Bright Week,
I have been trying to not wear much dark clothing,
as even a Bright Week Funeral is very Paschal and Bright.
Not that my Aunt Karen had this exactly since she was not
Orthodox.. but it is still her Easter Season too...
The unbloggable is still there.
But I am trying to have it not steal the enjoyment of moments that are
nice, like being in the pretty neighbouring town and having my yearly
haircut.... and I felt like I was more settled and less sad in terms of leaving
Ottawa over 5 years ago; when I first got my hair cut here, I was still
really missing my hairdresser there and now it's better and that is great.
Funny moment, when I was discussing with the hairstylist/s about
to have my hair down or pulled back, I pulled it back as I was asking
and they all said quickly "pulled back!!!"... it was really funny/cute/kind/nice.
Well. Tomorrow I get to wear my new outfit and just have fun with it.
We've had a lot of stress and sadness and so just having a special event to
go to and seeing friends is going to be so very welcome....
