New Vantage

Hello, hello! Today was a productive day off. I started it nice and early (about 7:40ish) and managed to get grocery shopping, Christmas shopping, laundry and a post office visit done all before lunch! Then, of course, it was time to sit in the sun and read. This afternoon I dyed my hair an auburn color and I've posted some pictures below so you can see how it turned out. Not as deep as I expected, but I still like it a lot. The lighting in my apartment is weird at night, so I took two photos.

I ALSO drove to Gates Pass today. I'm not sure exactly what lies beyond the pass, but the pass itself is beautiful. Nothing too steep, to be honest, but when you crest the top - WOW! What a view! I caught it just about sundown. The pictures don't do it justice. The colors were BRILLIANT. Saguaro cactus trees were everywhere. The sky was painted pink during my drive back. It's about 40-45 minutes from my apartment. Oh! And I passed by both the university and the Wildlife Museum on the way. Very exciting. :)

I'll post pictures of Christmas lights and Reginald's progress next. :)

Love you all!


  1. Pretty flower! I died my hair darker last week too! It didnt turn out as dark as I thought it would either! We are soul mates.

  2. Ahhh... love of my life! :) Can't wait to see it when you visit!
