HEAT Wave!

It is hotter than Hades! I am sitting in a towel in my new apartment trying to stay cool. The idea of buying an air conditioner just to get through a few days of extreme weather seems kind of silly to me. I am determined to get through this spell of hot weather with ice, cold drinks, and long naps. It has delayed my plan to paint the kitchen red. For years, I have wanted a red kitchen and I have the primer and paint all ready to go. There is just no way I could stand the fumes or the labor though so I'm going to wait until the weather breaks.
Wackily enough, I live around the corner from Brunsli's cousin Baker. He has the most delicious pastries ever!. I've had the peach croissants and chocolate souffles. Like I said, I'll never lose those extra lbs. going there.
Yesterday, I discovered Fairway and today a place called Garden of Eden with excellent produce. If it weren't so hot, I would either do more exploring or feel more motivated on the job search. As it stands, it's too hot for anything. I have enough food in the refrigerator that I won't be eating out for awhile.
I went today for new eyeglasses and have decided I no longer wish to be a redhead. I haven't donen anything about it yet. Tomorrow is another day.

Hey there Renea! It is good to hear that you are moved in to your new place. Talking about those pastries are a bit unfair though since I didn't make the NYC trip back in June and I would love to have a Peach Crossiant!

Hi Renea,

This is in response to the comment you left on my blog.

I want to live with my free form hair for a while. Get familiar with it. You know many a young black girl never found out what her real hair was like. I'm one of them. Right now I have about four inches of natural hair on my head. It feels really good to look at myself in the mirror and be happy with my hair. Kinky as it is I love it. It's as if it has it's own personality. It does what it does. And I'm pretty content with that. In February of 2006 I went to a barber and had him shave everything off. So I kinda started all over from initally cutting it myself in December of 2005. Next Friday 8/18/06 I have an appointment at a salon in NYC, where I live, called Sirca. They specialize in natural haircare. We'll see how that works out, as I've been to a few salons that "specialize in natural haircare" and was highly disappointed. I'll let you know how it goes.
