[HCH] Weekly Chat, Hair Changes, New Bible Reading Schedule
Aug 26, 2020 9:13 pm
Hello lovely ladies,
Another week has flown by... September here we come! ha! ha!
I've enjoyed seeing back to school pics from some of my friends. My youngest son leaves on Friday to head to Bible college. Would you please pray for his safety as he travels to an area where he is unfamiliar?
Next week I plan to decorate for fall early as a surprise for my husband, in hopes of boosting his spirit. It's our favorite season coming up. I usually don't buy a lot of decor, but I did buy a couple of new things to add to our fall stash to make it fun. Perhaps I should bake a fall treat to add some nice spicey aroma to the air...sounds cozy, right?
Okay... I have another off-the-wall thing to share. Keeping it real means sharing odd things sometimes....and yet hoping not to bore you to death. Ha! ha!
I've been dyeing my hair with a natural plant-based dye for the last 3 or more years. (I've lost count.). It's been great to use something that makes my hair healthy and avoid using chemicals. But, last month, I just couldn't do it again.
For the last few months, it's made my head itch for about 2 to 3 days afterwards. Perhaps I'm getting sensitive to it? I even noticed that I had a little rash right above my neck area. I did read that this has happened to others, whether it be natural or a boxed dye kit.
Also, with henna (that's what I was using), it's no easy process... it takes practically a whole day each month to do by the time you set it all up, create the mix, wear the mud stuff on your head for a few hours, and then use tons of cheap conditioner and water to get it all washed out.
So.... here I sit... letting my natural silver highlights say "hello" to the world. Sometimes I'm totally excited to see my true self again -- and free myself from the standards of others who say gray makes you look old. But, older does not mean less beautiful! Right?!
Other days I'm totally terrified...and look in the mirror and wonder what in the world I was thinking. That demarcation line is scary stuff! LOL
So if you happen to be on this journey as well, please do shoot me an email....Or, if you want to join me in the adventure, then jump on board! :)
One thing for sure is that it's going to take a LOT of patience.... about two years since I don't want to cut all my length off.
Perhaps I'll be chatting about patience a LOT more, too! hee! hee!
Change of subject:
YOUR new Bible reading schedule is ready...
I ENCOURAGE you to read God's Word each day. Just jump right in where we're at! Doesn't matter. If you don't feel that you have time to read much, just read for 5 to 10 minutes. But please do get spiritually fed each day!
Remember, you can print off just the page you want or just bookmark the page if you don't want to print it out.

Today's Tidy Up Your Life Tips: Fun Ways to Store Things
You don’t always have to buy specific storage containers for the things you need to organize. You can likely use some of the things you already have or things you can find at any Goodwill to use.
Plastic Bags – You get tons of plastic bags from the store, and sometimes they get out of hand. However, you can contain them by using a plastic cup with a lid. Ideally, the lid should have a slot for a straw in the lid. Old Clorox Wipes containers work too; just cover it with contact paper to make it attractive.
Thumb Tacks – If you have packages of plastic storage bags, you can take the top of the package and then tack it to the wall where you store it. Then the bags will always be available for you.
Cutting Boards – Get an old magazine holder to hold different sizes of cutting boards or other flat trays like that. You can cover the holder with contact paper so that it matches your décor too.
Coffee Pods & Tea Bags – Find an old tin box at the thrift store or in your mom’s house. Clean up the box, add dividers inside so that you can organize and store your beverages near your coffee or tea maker.
Cords – You can hide cords by clipping them or taping them to your furniture so that they don’t drop down and show. Use electrical tape if it’s going to show at all or tape it under where you cannot see it easily. Choose the colors you like depending on if you want it to show or not.
Spices – If you have a lot of spices, you can store them in magnetic boxes on your fridge, but some people don’t like having that stuff out. You can use risers or even a flat curtain tension rod in your cabinet to make more levels for more spices.
Remember that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to declutter and organize. You simply need to consider how, where, and when you use things. Then, experiment to decide how to make them most accessible and easy to clean.
