Just Another Day

I FINALLY got a haircut! No more Covid Hair for me lol. It's been the highlight of my week so far. I felt really comfortable going inside the small salon. When I got to the salon I had to text my hairdresser and she texted me back to let me know I could go on in. I didn't see anyone as I walked to her booth. I had on my mask and she had on hers. When she needed to get close to my ears she had me hold the mask over my face and release one of the ear elastics and then the same with the other side. My head feels so much lighter. It's been really hot here (over 90F/30+C) and will continue to be so for days so a nice short haircut feels a lot better. Hairdressers opened here on the 15th of the month but she didn't schedule me until yesterday. I found out why. Her husband, who had been diagnosed with a brain tumour, sadly passed away three weeks ago. They hadn't been married very long. She seemed okay, but I imagine it's a really difficult time.

I went for a walk early today. It was hot outside even though it was early and I didn't stay out as long as I normally did. I met up with the lady I've been walking with but she was very hot too. It's quite draining walking out in the heat! Even the birds seem to get overheated.

I tried to find a bigger bird bath, but no luck. I ended up putting out another large bowl of water. Hopefully it helps!


  1. I'm glad you were able to get your hair cut! Sorry to hear the hairdresser's husband passed away.

    That is a great picture of the bird spreading out its feathers. Glad you put out a big bowl of water for them.

    Stay cool, Sharon. We've been in the low 70s, today, but, I am looking forward to warmer weather. :)

  2. Oh, how fantastic. I have mine done Friday next week and I can't wait!!
    It sounds really safely done too. That's great.

  3. I'm hoping to get mine cut on the 17th so I'm sort of wishing to get through the first half of July really quickly!
    My hairdresser comes here so I am praying for a fine day and then the haircut can be done out on the patio.

    It's sad news about your hairdresser's husband.

  4. So sorry to read about your hairdressers husband, how sad! Still waiting for my hair to be done it will be awhile yet as we are still shielding.

  5. Oh how I would love to get a haircut. It's a tragic loss for your hairdresser though. I imagine it would be very strange for her returning to a normal life when things will never be the same for her again.

  6. Wow a haircut I can't wait.. sad for your hairdresser.
