The silver threads among the gold have once more been beaten back. It's a personal decision for each one of us, but I choose not to go grey or white. I will keep my ash blonde till the bitter end and then ask that someone pack a Miss Clairol in my casket.
Finished reading The Kite Runner and was utterly overwhelmed by it. I cried. I don't give 5 stars on Goodreads to many books, but I gave it to this book. Such a sad story, written well. I will go looking for more of his books.
One more book to read before The Blind Assassin, and it's Leaving Time by Jodie Picoult. I usually avoid her books, but this one is about a medium who helps a girl search for her missing mother and it's stuffed full of information and jokes about elephants. I'm a sucker for books about mediums and I love elephants. So far I'm enjoying it.
Songs playing on my MP3 today while I exercised:
Sister Golden Hair by America
Heart of Glass by Blondie
Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood
Here Comes My 19th Nervous Breakdown by the Rolling Stones
Walk Like An Egyptian by the Bangles
Had to run, well not literally we're 5 miles from one, to the store to pick up some bacon and linguica. We're having bacon/linguica and eggs for lunch today. If you don't know linguica it's a wonderful Portuguese sausage. We like chorizo which is a good Spanish sausage, but linguica is even better. And what's better than breakfast for lunch!
Still hot here, setting new records each day and still no rain. The only place that weeds are even growing is in the garden because Mac waters it each day.
Have a great weekend.
