DAY 1, MAY 2, 2018

W/Before and Afters 

A Day in the Life
Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream
Paul McCartney, John Lennon 1967

I was nine years old when that song was written.  Although the rest of the lyrics aren’t exactly cheerful, I have always considered the melody uplifting.

John Lennon has been gone for 38 years and George Harrison 17.  Sir Paul McCartney is 76 and Sir Ringo Starr 78 years old.  Sorry about that dose of reality.

Always an early riser, today was no different.  I woke with that song in my head and a spring in my step.  Today is the first day of the best of my life.  The past 59 years have blown by as if a dream.

May 2, 2018, the first day of committing to 60 days of doing something big or small, that I love. This blog came about after mentioning my idea of 60 days to 60 to people and hearing omG, that would make such a great blog.

Today:  a new haircut, color and a makeover at Amber Waves Salon:


Amber has been cutting my hair for over ten years.  I enjoy the time spent in the chair as she tames my mane.  So far, feeling pampered.

Sans makeup, badly in need of a cut and color.

After haircut and color and a bit of makeup. Feeling happy!

Aside from some dreadful perm(s) in the 80’s and a few poor color choices over the years, I usually feel “pretty” good when I step out of the salon.  Today is no different.  There’s a new we (not a typo) coming.  I hope you will join me in doing something you love for 60 days.  Let’s together see what happens to our general outlook. I am shooting for a new joyful existence but will certainly be happy with contentedly evolving.  Is it going to be a chore to do something I love every single day for 60 days?  Please share your comments, ideas and your daily doings.  I could use some help here.

Thought for the Day:  And suddenly you know… it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.

  1. Great new doo! Love the thought of the day and the shirt. Can’t wait to see what magical things you will be doing. Amber is awesome 🙂


  2. Fantastic! Since you asked for some ideas, maybe you can visit a handful of your favorite places in Arizona, for example: local restaurants; old houses; rural hiking; etc. Then you could give some background information on the locations and why they are awesome. 🙂


  3. Your positive vibes and your blog as well made me smile,… Thank you, Sheryl! Your hair always looks great BTW 🙂
