A fun mish-mash

365 Project: Days 64-68

DAY 64… Here I am getting my hair cut and styled at Lavish Salon with Kaylee Graham. I always give her free reign to do what she thinks will look pretty, and I love knowing that I’ll always leave there feeling good about what she does. I never have to restyle it when I get home or anything. She even shows me new things that are in style—and how to do them! 🙂 I just love her. She’s the best stylist I’ve ever had. If you’re ever in the Champlin area, she really is amazing.

DAY 65… Here’s my daughter, Allison, with her second new (used) car. A cute car for a cute girl. 🙂  I’m really proud of her. She’s been moved out since the start of this school year, and she bought this car with cash – and all of her own money. She’s a hard worker. Jon and I pray God’s blessings overtake her everywhere she goes… everything she does… and this car WILL be a ginormous blessing in her life.

DAY 66… Jon recently learned to like oatmeal. Better late than never, I say! Now he knows how to make a perfect batch of it. I invite him make it for me whenever he wants, since oatmeal is one of my favorite foods. I put a little milk, brown sugar, and some of our own maple syrup (from our maple trees) on it, and then on this particular day, I threw on a few blueberries before adding the milk. The blueberries weren’t the best addition to the rest, so I won’t do that part again, but OATMEAL… seriously, what a deeeeeelicious discovery. My life experience is greatly enhanced every time I eat this.

DAY 67… I don’t really know if Jon was faking this sad face or not, but after about 10 years, he threw his leather “everything shoes” in the TRASH. The side seams have been super-glued several times, and have definitely seen better days. Those shoes and Jon have been through a lot together… lots of vegetable and flower gardening, lawn-mowing, tree-planting, landscaping, oil-changing and car-fixing, car-washing, driveway-tarring, maple-syruping, bird-feeding, sprinkler system-fixing, brush-pile dumping, and so much more. Goodbye, Rockports… you were money well spent.

DAY 68… Well, from haircuts to cars… to oatmeal and shoes. I guess there’s no smooth transition, but… look at this back-road beauty I get to look at every day out my car window, just a couple minutes from home. It’s so much prettier than taking the highway, don’t you think? Dirt roads and everything. Ahhhhhh… I sure do love the country.

    Good job Julie! Certainly you have a talent for writing, just like your Dad’s.I was at Cub yesterday and I bought a birthday card for Merle and did one of those, I have to buy Bob one too. It was so automatic. He was my little brother, that I used to carry around when he was small. He was a part of my life for so long that it is hard to believe that he isn’t here. I will always miss him! And like Ron, there will always be a part of my heart where they live. God took them home and I know that someday I will see them again!Keep writing Julie! Your Dad is proud of you for doing so!
