Hair - Part 2

No, not the musical - just pictures for Susan.  This is what my hair looked like in April, right after I took out the corn row braids.  

This is what it looks like now.

Just a bit of a difference.  Still no comments at home.  This cut is more maintenance because I actually have to dry and style it but it should be long enough by April to put up in a pony tail again.  I wish it was just a bit longer at the back.

Hair Cut

Yesterday I got my hair cut - not trimmed - cut. For years my hair has been midway down my back. Most often it is braided or in a bun to keep it out of food or out of my eyes while gardening. It now rests on my shoulders - I probably had about 5 inches taken off. In addition to length, the rest of an old perm is gone so it is now mostly straight. My hairdresser kept saying things like "Oh wait till they see it". I replied that no one would even notice. When Victoria was a baby we were warned that the chlorine was off in the pool and I should rinse her hair really well because she was so blonde. Well, I rinsed hers, but mine was in a braid and I didn't take it out to rinse it. We went camping after swimming lessons and I didn't get a look in a mirror for 2 days. Then I asked Kevin if my hair had been green all weekend. To which he replied "Is your hair green?" So a day and a half has passed and the only one to comment was my boss - she liked it. So I am wondering if everyone noticed and just didn't know what to say so they didn't say anything or have they really not noticed?

I spoke too soon

Yesterday I commented on Stephanie's blog that we had a lot of snow but it was melting as soon as it hit the ground.  I spoke too soon.  Sometime around 11 pm the snow started accumulating.  The guys shovelled before they left for work/school at 8:30.  Then Caitlin and I shovelled everything again.  So by 10:30 our drive and walkway had been done twice.  We are expecting 40 cm today.  It is one of those days when you are finally done the bottom of the drive, you have to start at the walkway again!

What a glorious day!

It hit 21 degrees here today.  I haven't heard the confimation but I am sure we beat a record.  Today I was wearing a t-shirt and jeans.  Last two years by this time I was wearing long johns and my fingers were numb.  Digging in the wet soil and bagging leaves gets your hands cold and wet quickly.  More of the same beautiful weather tomorrow.  I am not complaining!
