When I worked, I sat near a woman who had the longest hair. Past her waist. She'd come in each morning and brush it out and put it in a scrunchy for the day. I admired her, and anyone, who could grow hair like that and decided to do it when I retired.
Well, 3 years later, it got whacked. Sure, it was nice having it, when it behaved. But, after being attacked by it; held prisoner by it and, when getting dressed became stressful, it had to go!
Try to lean forward in a chair and my head was jerked back by the hair between me and the chair back. Try to put a shirt on and it gets stuck inside, kinking my head until I could pull it from the shirt. Sleeping was no fun when I'd try to roll over and my head is held prisoner because I'm laying on the hair. I don't know how she did it. I hated it so badly, that I cut it short with manicure scissors because at that manic moment I couldn't even take the extra time to look for larger ones. Ah, freedom!
Later, outside in the garden, feeling light and breezy, I pranced about putting the bird netting onto the straw bales. I'd procrastinated, and a green bean seedling and my carefully tended pepper seedling are gone. Eaten by some awful bird, or animal.
I'm so Mad!!
Yes, it's my fault and now I'm sad. I think I'm missing some strawberry fruits, too, so everything is covered. (Note to self, do this earlier next time)
Put a few more seeds down. More leaf lettuce and radishes are going in. Hope they grow well. The arugula came up very quickly, so we have a winner there. The radishes on the straw bale have gotten big, but it seems the roots are uncovered, so watering seems to wash the dirt off. Must find a way to add more dirt to the bale.
Everything in the garden is done early, now, as I hate the afternoon heat. I spend the afternoons checking my emails, FaceBook and perusing the web. So much fun and a cooling fan makes it pleasant.
Ziva has decided to join me each afternoon. I feel kinda special, as she doesn't like to leave Steve. He, however, can stay in the heat and not be the worse for wear.
Ha! Ziiiiivaaaa likes me better!!!!
