new colours

Over the years I've had a mullet, a super short pixie cut, long long hair, a perm, bangs, no bangs but (aside from one very unfortunate incident where I volunteered for a hair show and they botched up a blond dye job) I have been very tentative with hair colour. The cut is not the issue, I chopped my hair all off super short the day after prom just a week before graduation but cccccolour...eeek. I would think that I could do it, that I wanted a colour change but wandering the hair dye aisle I would always gravitate toward the semi-permanent-almost-my-natural-light-brown box. Well ladies, not anymore! No, this chick has stepped out.
That's right I have dark copper and violet streaks!! It is so much fun, why didn't I do this before?

Speaking of colour, we have been getting some work done on our Boler trailer. So far it is still a dingy white and yellow but not for long. We have fabric for cushions and curtains and my hubby made his first box cushion today! He did a fantastic job, I have begun working on the curtains and soon the paint will be applied. We're going for bright and cheery. It's exciting to have a project to be working on together and we are hoping to have it done so we can take our inaugural voyage in May. So if you don't hear from me I'll be with my sewing machine.

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to visit some other company girls.

attitude of gratitude

Is it just me or did this week go by in a blur? The weekend went out with a bang when we awoke Monday morning to snow, lots o' snow.

I even learned how to use the snow blower, woohoo! A wonderful invention!

Wednesday I bought salt for the driveway and we chipped away at the ice that had built up. Why, you ask? Why were we so intent on getting rid of the ice? Well on Tuesday night we went out to return a movie only to find the truck at the bottom of the driveway more than a car length further down the driveway than where it had been parked...yep gotta love an icy hill for a driveway. Anyway onto my gratitude list for this week:

1. Snow, I love that we live somewhere we can experience all 4 seasons, true summer and winter included.

2. Snow blower and salt see #1.

3. Dryer fuses, ours came in today and tomorrow I will clean out the lint and have it up and running again. The past 2 ands a half weeks of only rack drying has given me a new appreciation for the dryer.

4. Good friends, I had the opportunity to get together with some good friends this week and I just love it.

Thanks for stopping by have some more coffee with some other company girls.
