Hair Cut? Whack job's more like it!

I don't think I would have made a very good Pioneer. I'm such a whiner, I'm so done with winter already! I can't imagine what it must have been like for our pioneer grandmothers and grandfathers, just to keep alive everyday. How much work just to keep warm in the winter time!  Wow. I'm so grateful for my nice warm home, an my washer and dryer, and hot water heater etc.!

Here's one of the things on my "to make or buy" list for warmer days.  Pony swings! I love them, and think we need some  (at least 2 or 3 ) for the grands. I want mine hung on a pipe swing set, with ample room in between them. Eeeeehaw! Imagine what places will be visited on the backs of these noble steads!
...and on just as light of a note,
 I cut  whacked my own hair this morning....I know my DD would have cut it for me, but the deal was, well, I couldn't wait. Oh my word! I knew I wanted it short short, like my oldest DD who is sporting a way cute faux hawk....but when I made that first snip with my scissors, uff da! Opps! What in the world had I just done to myself? It was about an inch long!  OK,  maybe an inch and a half.  lol
 I couldn't even cry about it,  cuz I knew it would do no earthly good, just got to work cutting the rest  off.  This January through March part of winter is a very dangerous time of year for me! Out with the old, in with the new! Ha. Help! I need a keeper to keep me out of trouble ! lol Bless my Daughters heart she'll get stuck cleaning up the back where I have a hard time seeing! Oh the things a beautician does to herself because she thinks she can!  There will be no forth coming photo......not for a inch or so! he he he  :-)  Truly, I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy the simpleness of it. This much I do know, it will grow!!!

This is the last day of the winter giveaway here at the Stone House. Enter if you haven't. Tomorrow  we'll have randon number do the honors.
Enjoy your Monday!

Carpe diem.......Seize The Day

Like you always told me when I was young and didn't want to try a new style...it's just hair and it grows back!! :)
