Today’s big event was a haircut.
|a lil tired, but not too shabby|
As you will see, I had a little photo session to capture the essence of my hair. Marie-Anne told me that it is a very “young French girl” haircut. I will take this as a compliment.

I was in and out of the house today. I went to the post office, twice. As well as the salon, I also went to the salon twice (once to book and once for the cut). Yes, I am still having phone difficulties and can not phone to book myself a hair cut.
On the topic of the phone, I did answer it today. Numerous times in fact. One of those times was significant! I got my very own phone call. Sure it was from the FedEx woman, saying that I better be home on Monday to receive my package, but the point of the matter is that I got my first phone call here.
I took care of a lot of things today. You know those days that you spend “just doing stuff” that you find is very productive, but at the end of the day when somebody asks you what you did all day you can’t really tell them anything and feel kind of lame because they think you did nothing all day while really, deep inside you know you are a wonderfully productive person? Yeah, that was today.

While I was out and about, I don’t know which outing of the day it was, I noticed something (as always); the hills here do not look flat. Now, I am not being silly. I am serious. If you look at the hills around Saskatoon, what little hills we have, they are flat, as in they look like flat lines of round hills on the horizon. If you look at the hills here, along the horizon, they are not flat. This is due to shrubs. Yes, today I noticed that we have hills of shrubs here opposed to hills of grass. This may seem trivial and somewhat confusing to you, but trust me, I found it very interesting.
Yesterday I forgot to note that Lou tried to frighten me with a plastic alligator. I will admit, I was caught off guard. Most people are when they open a door and a plastic reptile is launched at their head. While making her bed this morning, I thought it would be somewhat comical to hide the alligator under her pillow. I forgot that she was going for a sleepover tonight, and after school while we were packing her bag, she came across the alligator. Unfortunately I am dealing with a tough crowd here, and my joke was not found to be funny, or even slightly amusing. I would have found it funny.
Maybe I’m just more light hearted than some people..

I will let you know that I was extremely productive, right into the evening. I almost forgot to eat supper.
Thankfully I did not because it was delicious. If you have a pressure cooker on hand, I suggest you throw in about 3 zucchinis, sliced, some pumpkin, diced, water and a bay leaf. Leave it for about 30 minutes and you will have a wonderful soup waiting to be consumed. Yes, so wonderful.
