Spring is time to make things new, yes? I’ve put up a bluebird house in hopes that one of the bluebirds I saw at the feeder this past week will make a home in it.
I have new hair, too! Of course, now I look nothing like my author’s pic, so I can go to my own appearances incognito.
Hair can be so complicated. I haven’t worn my hair this short since 1995, when I got a haircut that my husband Pinckney quickly dubbed “Q-tip Head.” It was scarring, I tell you. I looked like a real estate agent circa 1975. But it was also during my heavily floral Laura Ashley period. (Yes, I did own fine wale corduroy Laura Ashley coveralls with enormous patch pockets. As a mother of a toddler, I thought I was just fine, thank you. And, no, Pom did not have a matching set. Though we were into matching Hanna Andersson duds for way too long.)
The haircut has been a hit with everyone but Pomegranate thus far. Bengal said, “Hey, Mommy. I’ve never seen your whole ears before!”
What’s new for you this lovely new season?
Congratulations to Dawn E. of Jackson, Missouri! She won the drawing for the second Calling Mr. Lonely Hearts Fabulous Handbasket (but if the basket doesn’t have a handle, can it still be called a handbasket?). It’s on its way, Dawn!
