I feel a good hair day coming!

October 1, 2009

Heck, it’s going to be a GREAT day!

I’m headed to Wilmington (about 2 hours southeast on I40 from Cary) to see my daughter who’s a hairstylist salon pic there…she does fantastic work and well, she’s my daughter so it’s well worth the drive! Some days, it can be a real drag to make this trip…either traffic or weather will work against my mood. Today, however is Thursday, and it is NOT the start of a holiday weekend, so I’m feeling good about the traffic part of the equation. The weather is going to be PERFECTION! High of 74 and sunny!

Now, if I only had that convertible I keep dreaming about…; )solara 

This is just another of the reasons why we have chosen to stay in Wake county. If I need a ‘beach fix’ it’s an EASY day trip from here. Same holds true for the foothills of the mountains to the west. Last year, I took a beautiful, leisurely drive up to Pilot Mt and on to Mt Airy (aka Mayberry). Left after breakfast and was home in time to go to a football game that night. The colors were spectacular and the scenery was amazing! aumtum mountainsCary is situated is in what’s called the Piedmont of the state…I like to think of it as the meat & cheese of the state sandwich. We’re right in the center…between the mountains and the ocean. Have I mentioned? I love, love, love this place!

Now I’m off to visit that magician of a daughter I have…I’ll walk into the salon a fairly tired and deshelved (from the drive, thank you very much) middle aged grandma but I’ll walk out feeling like a million bucks! Maybe I’ll even have a pedi/mani while I’m there. Heck, they even do massages. Now were talking!
