GIRAFFING




I’m almost ready to start quilting again.  There’s only a small pile of unread magazines left to read…left over from my long hospitalization.  I plead sickness, or giraffness…before someone realizes that I am awake and in here.  Giraffness?  This is stubborn and easily distracted.

Yesterday we Registered Grumpy at AAA along with getting Passport photos.  Then it was off to see Margaret who put a rinse on my hair, medium blond which looks brown, and it washes out slowly not leaving a white area where it has grown out.  I was so appalled at the more than generous amount of white hair and thousands of wrinkles when I looked in the mirror that I thought I had to do something.  I’ve always been the friend who recommends letting the hair go back to natural.  Now I feel a bit like hiding my head in shame.

  1. That is a gorgeous quilt. We have only just had hairdressers open again after lockdown. It takes forever to get an appointment. I'm thinking of letting mine grow just one more time.

  4. Gratitude: that Mage is more herself than she knows.
    That quilt certainly deserves first place. I can see that it is well hung, so the show officials knew what they were doing.

  5. Love that quilt. You see something different each time you look at it. So happy that you are getting back to normal. My hair had all ready turned white but boy does it need a cut!!

  Tidy, much more so now.     Thread is mixed in with the books as are pens and those ever useful measuring implements.   My desk is a bit...
