journey to growing my natural
hair out is almost done; except
for about one to two inches on
the side top layer my hair is almost
completely silver. I must confess
during this journey there have
been times I 've been in tears,
missing my long hair, my dark
hair! Wondering if I've made
a terrible mistake. What is it about
hair anyway? It doesn't define
who I am or what I stand for.
But as my hair has grown out
I don't think I have made a mistake.
I like the 'new' me, both inside and out.
I'm healthy, kind, sensitive, hardworking,
creative, loyal, and peace loving..
It has taken my 51 years to get here and
I'm excited to see what the next
65 years will hold [ oh yes, I plan
on living to be 116].
I wear a Garmin Vivofit 2 and just
received my million step badge
which is pretty motivating to keep
walking, even in this suffocating
heat! I get at least 10, 000 steps in
every morning before breakfast
and sometimes even 12, 000!
I played with a dragonfly this weekend.
While I have been trying for months
to just get a photo of a pink dragonfly,
the blue ones like me to hold them.
There was more wonderful mail in
my box, the dottie angel frock pattern.
After waiting months for the pattern's
release then not being able to get my
hands on it a very dear and special friend
found it and sent it my way. I am forever
thankful. My son Alex took one look at
the cover and said, 'yes, that looks like
I knit a swatch and met gauge, but before
casting on I am trying to finish my shawl.
I'm not sure of my will power this time,
I think I'm floundering, but having two
wip's isn't too bad, right?
I tried out a new recipe [but I used crunchy
almond butter] and this may have been a
mistake, they are really good.
How was your weekend?
