Long, long ago, I began blogging so I could participate in swaps. It’s been a while since I’ve been in a swap, but the awesome Kathyb hosts a great swap and this was fun.
The envelope arrived from Katherine. It was filled with goodies. The rules were simple; replace what you take with something of equal value, but if you open the closed package inside, you have to take what’s within.
I’m not good with not knowing, so… I opened the little envelope. As the writing on the outside suggested, there might be something neat or not inside. I don’t know who put the item in there, but thank you!
I like the little project bag, and I also took the rusty orange – er, squash – Skinny Dyed Cotton. Pardon the quick, sloppy photo, but doesn’t it scream fall?
What does it want to be?
In Wen news, I cleansed again yesterday afternoon. I used 6 pumps initially, rinsed, and then put 2 pumps on the “ponyail” section as more of a conditioner, let it marinade for a while, then rinsed.
Today, it’s drizzly. My hair is a little frizzy, but my scalp didn’t tingle and it’s not greasy so far today. I honestly don’t know whether I’ll Wen again tomorrow or not. Maybe the bottom half of my hair looks a little healthier, but I’m not sure. I really expected to either love Wen or hate it, and … thus far, I’m ambivalent. I don’t know whether I’d classify Wen as a dud or a doosie!
Now… A New Leash on Death was definitely a doosie. Susan Conant’s Dog Lovers Mysteries are new to me, and no surprise, this dog lover loved the first book in the series. It’s not a new series, and I found myself laughing at the pay phone reference early in the book, but the author knows a thing or two about the world of dog shows, and about dogs. I’ve already started the second book in the series.
Any duds or doosies in your world?
