1. I gave Sonia a haircut.
After watching Downton Abbey and seeing Edith’s 1920s haircut, she was itching for a change.
So, we cut off a few inches and she is loving her new, shorter ‘do!
(I used the same basic method I wrote about in How to do a Simple Bob Haircut, adding some long layers all around.)
Since Sonia’s hair is wavy, giving her a haircut a super low stress proposition. Any tiny mistakes are totally covered by the waves.
2. I renewed my Cook’s Country subscription.
My latest issue came with a 3 year offer for $42.95. That’s like getting more than one year free as compared to the price on Amazon.
The form was mail-in, but I opted to log in online and redeem the offer. Less work, no stamp necessary!
3. I made applesauce.
The produce stand’s last day is Halloween, so I popped by that day and bought all the bruised apples they had ($11), plus a full half bushel box of Honeycrisp for $32.
We’ve been eating some of the apples, but I also turned a whole lot of them into applesauce, which I froze for winter eating.
4. I shaved some pills off my leggings.
Aldi had a fabric shaver in their Special Buy section, and I bought one for these leggings, which have pilled terribly despite the fact that I’ve line dried them every single time.
I am super impressed with how well this little gadget works. And I have to tell you that it is pretty darn fun to use.
I kind of wish I had more pilled items lying around!

- made my own coffee at home
- ordered dry shampoo online (cheaper there!)
