I had my hair done yesterday by my daughter, Gennifer. I always love to go for a fresh "do", but I hate to sit there looking into that mirror at the woman before me who I sometimes don't even recognize anymore. She is fluffier, grayer,and more wrinkled and tired looking than ever before. WHO is she? When it was time for me to go sit under the dryer, I took my readers out of my purse and sat down next to two stacks of magazines and after shuffling through them, realized that there wasn't a ding dang thing in those that I cared to read. In Style, Fashion, Vogue, Us, Hair....etc..etc...etc....I took my glasses off, and shut my eyes instead, enjoying a few minutes of meditation.
Speaking of magazines, these are much more the norm here in my house.
I also have large stacks of cooking magazines that I refer to often.
Let's see, what else is going on here? I remade my living room curtains the other day. I had bought an entire bolt of this fabric, thankfully. I made them the first time and thought I could stitch witch the entire thing. NOPE....that did not look finished. I left them hanging that way for far too long, and knowing we were having company last weekend, I bit the bullet and re cut and made new panels, this time sewing them properly.
While I had my ORB out, I repainted this old pot rack that was my Mom's. I remember it hanging up in the kitchen in the house where I grew up.
This is the back. A little piece of red and ecru toile.
While I was out on the porch taking pictures, Maui, my pretty calico kitty wanted some attention too.
Before I go today, I want to mention a couple of nice blogging friends that gave me blog awards. What I have decided to do instead of accepting and publishing awards, I prefer to mention a few blogs that I have found that I find fun and interesting in some way, so that I can share them with you. So, to Heather at
Thank you! Thank you for thinking of me, and wanting to pass along the award. I have enjoyed Heather's blog for some time now, and I hope you go over to say hello and see what beautiful things she creates with her yarn and hook.
