But first a look back to what I did in the waning days of October. I cut my hair, a long bob. My daughter was a scary fairy with goth wings and a black dress, that I last wore when I was 23. She is 11, so she was shocked to learn I could wear that dress when I was twice her age. I cut the scalloped butterfly wings, fashioned a wire armature, and let her sew the fabric to it. I took some time off to clean my cluttered house. I'm still not satisfied with it, but I am getting there. I want the house to be ready for the long days we spend inside now. And some new wall arrangements are in order. I'll try to remember to post what I come up with for Christmas!Long ago I embraced my gray hair, and now, its actually fashionable. I am really a no fuss no muss kinda gal. I like to wash it and let it dry, pin it up on my head, and when its dry I let it down, its comes out a bit curled on the ends. I think hair dryers dry more than hair, they dry out your skin. Its hard to believe that in a few months I'll be 47. Where did the time go?? Life speeds away, like a runaway train. And when I look at Leah I get pretty nostalgic. I was looking at her baby pictures the other day. Time has indeed flown.
