Managing, Moving On

Just when the weather was showing us some ' spring ' promise,
Just when we were beginning to manage real life changes,
Just when we were beginning to prepare for next winter,
Yes, IT snowed AGAIN!
Are You KIDDING? At least it was just a dusting and not the 9 inches the lower part of the state received. For that, I remain grateful.

So, mixed snow and freezing rain has kept me inside, again!
I thought I'd start by making this camisole that I have had my eye on. It's light enough for spring/summer wear and adds just the right warmth for upcoming rainy/windy days when I still want to wear a tank top.....hot flashes, ya understand?
Practical/ still a bit daring/ me!
I also am having issues with my split end, salt and pepper hair, so thought, what the heck. If I can still manage a camisole, surely I can go for another change. I'm only as young as I feel and today I still feel young. So, from this salt and pepper, to~~~~
To ah-nat-u-ral auburn with subtle copper highlights....like? I love it and feel so much better. What is it about a ' cut and color ' that makes us feel so good? It works for me.
That's it for my day of doing for ' me ' on a blustery day. So much for my vanity fair. Everyone needs one once in awhile.

Thanks for coming by and
BlessYourHearts

That winter still sneaks in here and there doesn't it!?

My hubby went Walmart here last week and since our first safe planting date is After Mother's day we have not plants yet.

He went to a florist / greenhouse and said he was desperate for his wife's sanity to get something to plant preferably pansies as they will go through cold snap if we have one. They don't open till this next weekend but felt sorry for him and let him go in and get some six packs! $4.00 a six pack!!! He said he knew I wouldn't have bought them at that price but that I needed them so they were my little (expensive) love gift - gotta love him!

Beautiful hair color, Dar. I'm sure you do feel better. We women just need that kind of pampering at times...

Sorry about the snow--but glad you didn't get too much. Hopefully, it will all melt soon.

Love that camisole.... Looks so comfy.
Hugs,
Betsy

Hooray for your missing the heavy white stuff! As for that white stuff in your hair - I know you ladies like the fake natural... ☻ As for me? I like natural-natural. Bwah-hah!

This long drawn out arrival of spring can be a bit discouraging. I'm glad to see you've turned it to productivity instead of oh woe, oh woe is me!

Fun changes for an "old" gal. Ha!

Ruta said...

Love the camisole...Wow!
The color and cut always lifts my spirits too!
Wishing Spring weather your way...

Paula said...

Wow! Beautiful color! You will look hot for sure in the camisole! *grin*
I can't believe you had snow again... bless your heart!

Skeeter said...

Yikes Snow! My garden would not be happy about that. I hope this is the last blast for the season for you....

Lucy said...

Happy Easter Dar and family. Like the color of your hair. Mine is totally white and at my age will leave it that way.

Judy said...

I've been wondering about dyeing my hair hot pink, myself, but that might be too radical...
And Happy Easter!!!
