Good Friday morning! This morning, the sun is shining through the kitchen windows, but don't let that fool you! It is COLD! This past week was a quiet one here. After finally locating my winter boots in the basement under the shuffleboard table, I did venture out to get my hair cut and colored. And in breaking news...
I got rid of the blond. Apparently, years of adding bleach can result in less than healthy locks. Who knew? I decided to return to my natural color and had her cut off some dead ends to start fresh. So far, so good.
Last night I made an easy, fresh, delicious pasta dish for dinner. I had some freshly chopped ~ from the store ~ onions and tomatoes, so I sauteed them in some olive oil along with some freshly minced cloves of garlic. I threw in some dried basil, salt and pepper, and a little bit of the water in which I was boiling the pasta. I let that simmer while I cooked some penne pasta. Once drained, I added the pasta to the tomatoes mixture and gave it a good stir. To finish it off, I grated some fresh parmesan cheese, and that was that. An easy but delicious dinner that literally took twenty minutes to prepare!
Well, I need to go make our menu plan and grocery order. I also need to call the dentist and pour a cup of coffee. Our weekend looks cold and basically uneventful, just the way I like it. There may or may not be quite a bit of this...
It's January, right? Thank you for all the fun comments on my previous post. It is so fun to get to know more about each other, don't you think? Have a lovely, cozy weekend, my friends. Stay safe, sound, warm, and healthy! Thanks for visiting!
Your hair looks great! It is sunny but 9 degrees here right now. I'm off work today and not leaving the house. It's still hibernation month for me. Have a wonderful Friday!!ReplyDelete
Hi Billie Jo! Yay for uneventful, relaxing weekends! I hope yours is exactly that way. I do love your new haircut and color. The color is really great. The last time I colored my hair was back in 1986 and that was a one-time thing. I am au-naturale when it comes to my hair. The pasta dinner looks delicious! See you again soon. :-)ReplyDelete
I am in love with your place settings! Those are absolutely lovely!!! I am also putting off a call to the dentist! I had a filling break off and I am dreading going in to get it fixed. Thanks for the reminder! HA! Have a great weekend Billie Jo!! Stay warm!ReplyDelete
Your hair looks fantastic. I had 3" lopped off my hair yesterday-it was badly needed. It feels good to have healthy ends.ReplyDelete

Hate to tell you friend, but you're still blonde! Love it on you. That pasta dish looks delish. I wouldn't have thought of doing it, but maybe now that you've thought of it for me....ReplyDelete
I took a nice long winter's nap today. Now it's time for me to think about dinner.
Billie Jo, I'm so delighted to have found your blog. It's a breath of fresh air and very open and friendly. I'm dieting mostly by cutting out carbs and sweets, but every Monday after my weekly weigh-in I have whatever I want for dinner that night, then back to the diet for another week. Your pasta made me start thinking about pasta this Monday evening . . . Looked so yummy. Your newest follower, Connie :)ReplyDelete
Your hair looks SO beautiful! WOW! Stunning!ReplyDelete
Your hair looks amazing Lady! I need the blonde to hide the gray - but I do a lot of conditioning treatments. Lol I also do different essential oils on my scalp via castor oil as a base to help my scalp and hair.ReplyDelete
That pasta sounds amazing!! You are definitely the Queen of Pasta!
That pasta dish looks amazing. You always make the most delicious pasta. And your new hair cut looks great! Have a good rest of the week, Billie Jo. It's really cold here too, and just staying in this week to stay warm. : )ReplyDelete
