summer cut and blue sky day
So, I got my summer hair cut. I've been pulling it back with combs for weeks, a sure sign it has gotten too long. I cannot abide having my hair in my face and my hair naturally wants to grow forward and I have spent the last 45 years combing it back, away from my face. It's really short! Always a shocker for me since I let it get so long between cuts.
You might notice a sparkly glint on my earlobe. That's because I did find my diamond studs a couple of weeks ago purely by accident when I decided to wear a particular necklace to work that day. Obviously, I did not put them in my pocket that morning and they did not get washed away in the washing machine like I supposed and I did not put them in any of the usual places I put them when I take them off. What I did do was put them in the little bag that I keep a necklace in that I hardly ever wear. Apparently, I took it with me when we were in the city for the open house last December, though I ended up not wearing it, and when I took my studs out in favor of another pair of earrings, I slipped them in the bag with the necklace for safe keeping and never thought about them again until 5 weeks later.
Yesterday after raining most the day Saturday, it cleared up and stayed cleared up. I actually got to see the sun set for the first time in weeks, maybe even months. And today dawned clear blue sky with not a cloud in sight. Everything is loving the sunshine. Especially me. I have a full size drawing I need to get finished but I keep getting drawn outside.
The wisteria has exploded into bloom and is so busy with bees of all kinds that you can hear the buzzing long before you can get close enough to see them.
The dewberry (our wild blackberry) likewise is blooming and busy with bees.
The first poppies opened
and the azaleas are in full bloom.
It was so nice to be able to stroll around the yard in the sun and see what there was to see.
