10 NOVEMBER 2011 : SITTING AT THE eBENCH ON A THURSDAY

SUNRISE FROM THE FRONT VERANDAH. NOVEMBER 2011. RALEIGH NSW

THE YAAN.

Mega hot here in Raleigh. Just as I like it. I am going for the Australian equivalent of a Siesta and then I will be back. Today  I have my weekly DAY AT HOME ALONE including the EVENING.

My eBENCH plan is to dig into the NLA TROVE ( NATIONAL LIBRARY OF AUSTRALIA TROVE ) and take a look at old advertising. I want to see what I would have or could have bought myself way back for such things as  headaches, summer fashion, blotchy skin, incontinence, false teeth, baby’s needs, cooling down, refrigeration etc.

Before I snooze, I shall post just this one idea for shampoo and if the Little Red Chook has laid another egg in the sombrero when I wake up, I just might try the idea from 1911.

RIGHT. I AM UP AND ABOUT. Hair is washed. I went the way of Dr Bronner’s Liquid Soap due to there being no egg laid today and being unable to find any Clorossan shampoo in the House. Pity – I was looking forward to going into town tomorrow and having people say “ How lovely your hair looks! “.

No matter it looks pretty good as is. Best I see what to do about makeup this Summer.
