And simple. Part a 1 inch section of hair at an angle along hair line....braid it down. Next ...move an inch over from the start of that braid and part in opposite direction. Continue in this manner until all the hair is braided and you are left with a complicated looking pattern but it couldn't be simpler.

As seen in the youtube vid I watched. The girl's hair was a little longer than mine but it still came out great. Also I'm testing a photo gallery substitute called QuikPic which unlike the stock gallery that came with new phone let's me send more than one pic at. A time. I had downloaded photoshop express but thhat let's me upload ONLY to facebook, twicpic, and adobe. No blogger, no bluetooth, no sms....which sucks. This let's me upload multiples to any thing I click from mail to chat to whatever. Cool huh. Given enough time...I'll have this phone acting liike my old sidekick...ya! Hahaha Anyway...check out the vid: day 6 bonus by thecurlstation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqH2J_7bQv0
Found this weight lose app. Granted I'm down to a size 12 now which is a far cry from the 215 I used to weigh but it a cool app so I thought I'd share it. Former weight: 215. Current weight: 150 to164 ...last physical said 164 and I wore a size 16. Now I wear 122 and 14 depending on the garment. Once I find a scale...I'll post the correct weight.
The pic is me in my "round the house" gear...trying on a shrug I was making for mom. All the clothes were a 16...didn't realize just how big they were on me tillbthe pic was taken. I remember having to pull at the seams before sitting down just so thighs wouldn't feel trapped. Now when I wear this size sweats...have to hold the waist when I sit. So they don't fall off. I have since given them away. When I went to buy replacements, that's when I learned I didn't go down to a 14...but down to a 12.
Anyway get the cool app...and walk with me...it gps your work outs and then tells you how far you went in miles and how many calories burned. Also told me I wasn't eating enough to lose weight but I can't worry about that since I eat till I'm full and can't eat any more. Guess I need to worry over more caloric choices instead of how much.

After 2 weeks of braids....upon take down and rebraid....this is all the hair that's has shedded. The average person sheds normally 100 to 150 strands a day. I haven't shed that much in 2 weeks. This is the result of no chemicals at all. I'm also keeping the back up for the remainder of the summer...or until its past the base of my neck.

The guy I hired to trim the trees...asked about my 1984 Mercedes Benz 190E, its been dead in the backyard for 2 years...when they were taking the branches to the backyard, he seen the car. Then it became let's make a deal.
So instead of a trim...I got the annoying spider ladened trees chopped down, new ones will be planted, and the maintenance of the front and back yard and the upkeep of the trees...all part of the deal.

Found this pic of me...from 1991...first summer back in Cincinnati. And yes I designed and created the jewelry. The jewelry...not that you can tell...is made from safety pins and pearl finished beads. They were adorable...when the fasination wore off I undid the safety pins and used the beads in a more permanent fashion. They became a fabulous necklace for a friends wedding...she loved it so I gave it to her. I had forgotten about it until I came across this pic. Since pics do tend to get lost for 10 yrs at a time...tucked away in some book as a bookmark, such as this one was...figured I had better upload it before it gets lost again. Hahaha

Testing blogger app to see what it can do. Phone came with blogger droid and blogger has its own app...that may allow oh say more than one pic to be posted at a time.
These are the pics that were sent with the post "a different twist on protective styling" that got dropped on upload.
While discussing the new phone and that I can send and receive picture msgs again...my workmate said "yeah?...let's see!" And held up his camera phone....so I struck a quick "hey Kay" pose...and he sent this...I'm posting it. The glasses look like bug-eyes in this light but they are my faves....so I'll just be bug-eyed. Hhahaha anyway...just sharing that!
