New 'do!

The boys went to the farm to work in the rain with Nicolas so I had a few hours to do all kinds of productive or creative things, many of which I thought about doing, for a few minutes. And then, I got on the computer and went on a facebook journey, reconnecting with friends from thirty years ago. I can't believe I'm going to get to see some of these people in person so soon.

Maybe this set me up for the next spontaneous act. I called down the street to see if I could get a hair cut. On the way there I worked up the guts to get radical - six inches off and straightened (wonder how long I'll keep up the straight bit).

It looks beautiful! But I have to laugh at you and the whole straightening thing: I love your curls and would take them in a heartbeat. Of course, the grass is always greener, isn't it?

I know I'm a bit behind and there's like, a gazillion comments already, but you know I have to add my 2 cents!
Very chic and cosmopolitan...you look so sophisticated! Love it!
But I also love the crazy untamable wildness that is your curly redheaded self. Either way, you win :)
