I was looking at some statistics from my hairstyle website, which I've had for about 2 years, and I was amazed that my little site has been viewed by thousands of visitors from 119 different countries all over the world. I was also pleased to notice that I continue to see new regular readers here on this blog.
I really do appreciate all of you who read, and I want to also thank those of you who take the time to leave comments. It's always nice to know for sure that there is someone out there who reads what I write. AutumnLeaves and SchnauzerMom; you ladies are so kind and rarely if ever fail to leave a comment. I can't tell you how nice that is. I would never be able to think up a comment to write for every blog entry I read, but you gals do, and you are sharing a real gift.
I myself am not the best at commenting on blog posts nor at replying to comments, although I do read them all, and they mean a lot. I just find that often the comments speak for themselves, and I am at a loss as to how to comment in response. I hope everyone knows that every comment is read and appreciated.
Rarely do I write comments on the blogs that I read, often because I'll have read a previous comment that says so much more articulately than I what I feel after reading an entry. I do keep up on the blogs to which I am subscribed, although on occasion, I may read a weeks' worth of a given blog's entries at a single sitting.
Yesterday was a lovely Canada Day, and the weather was perfect. We had a lovely week, sunny, but not too hot, with light breezes. Today is much hotter and more humid once again, but the sun is still shining in a largely cloudless blue sky.
Now that the sun is so direct, it's a good time for a reminder to protect our hair from the sun. The sun really can cause damage to hair. Obviously protective updos are helpful, but if you're outdoors for a long period of time, the sun will weaken your hair, so do keep your head covered during the peak sun hours if at all possible. Try a pretty scarf, a buff, a head wrap, a sun hat, even a baseball cap--whatever it takes to protect your hair and scalp from sun damage is really important.
Myself, I wear a sun hat that I've had for years. I picked it up at KMart. We haven't had KMart stores in Canada for years, so I know that hat is old, but it's very comfy and it does the trick.
Here's a secret. You can pick up a nice sun hat in the men's department of a store for much less money than you'd pay in a woman's department. My hat was purchased in the men's department, but I think it's quite feminine, at least when a woman wears it.
I hope that everyone enjoys the weekend, that you have lovely weather, and don't forget to protect your locks from the sun.
Love to all.
