Awesome Red Hair (Crappy hairstyle for work! ;) )

Okay, so I finally took the plunge last week and hennaed my hair.  I LOVE it!!!  Love love LOVE it!  It’s SO hard to get red to stick to blonde hair with chemical dyes–it just fades WAY too fast.  I’m so glad I finally worked up the courage to try henna.  I’m posting some pics by request:  just keep in mind my hair is pulled back kinda messily for work so it’s not looking its best, but this gives a good idea of the great color results I’ve gotten.  This color is after two henna applications and the picture was taken indoors with a flash.  I’m planning to do at least one or two more full-head henna applications because I want the red to deepen/darken just a bit.  I’ll do a longer post about my actual henna process later!

Slooooowwwwllllyyyy….

…but surely coming out of my sickness-induced funk and trying to get back into a routine.  I wrote like a crazy writing thing today, though it was mostly on a client project I’m trying to finish up, rather than fiction or my non-fiction proposal.  SOOOO glad that my sickness did NOT turn into bronchitis like they so often do for me.  My plan for tomorrow is to finish up the same project I worked on today, and catch up on a couple of other projects tomorrow.  Additionally, I need to do some more work on the non-fiction proposal and also make more progress on my Red Hot Fury revisions.  Oh, and I have GOT to make some major progress on the charity critiques I have for the wonderful, patient writers who awesomely bid on them.  If any of you read this LJ, please know that I AM working on them and truly appreciate your patience.

Can I have more hours in a day please?  =)
