Saturday morning activities
20.03.2010 - 20.03.2010
Saturday March 20, 2010 Maleny, Australia 11:00am
I forgot to mention, that Thank God I rented a car. The vacation would not have been as good without it. Different of course, but I love my freedom to go and do what I want.
This morning I showered and headed out to the internet cafe to upload all my photos and stories to date. Also, planning on having my breakfast there. Then off to the hairdresser's place.
I ordered my pancakes and soy latte and went over to the internet computer where I am allowed to move the internet cable onto my laptop. Now I'm connected! Bonus was that the waitress allowed me to eat my breakfast at the station, big grin. I uploaded all my photos which was time consuming not for the actual upload but for the requirement of information to attach to the photos. After that, I had stories that I wanted to upload and of course as I review them for editting there were some minor items that I wanted to add. It was satisfying to get these stories out to my friends.
Then I was able to pick up emails from home and that buoyed my spirits too. I love the encouragement and positiveness that my sister and daughter-in-law provide.
Now I am waiting for my hair appointment at 11:15am.
I had not brought my “hair stuff” from home for two reasons, one is the bulk and two is that I did not want to worry about my hair. Whatever, tie it up. However, for the wedding, I had asked Hair on Maple Street if she could squeeze me in and she did. Just a regular hair style, nothing fancy; firstly it's not me and secondly the humidity is way too high for maintaining a style.
While I was there a number of neighbourly type people came through and chit chatted with the wonderful woman who owns the place and was doing my hair. It was nice to be in the middle of this community. Time to go back to my cottage and get ready.
