For some reason I had convinced myself yesterday that the weather today was going to be delightfully sunny, maybe a tiny bit cool, so when it was time to head over to Hampden for a much-needed haircut. I pulled the bike out and felt the rain, but what are you going to do, get in a car to go less/fewer than two miles? So off I went, getting all wet as I pedaled slowly but surely up the hill in order to tell M. that as much as I think I should want “a lady sideburn,” I just don’t. Cut it all off so I can just stick a bike helmet on my head, ride around and sweat in it, and then tousle the thing and be ready for work. All newly-shorn, I walked over to the coffee shoppe for the most pretentious cup of coffee I can remember having and some work while waiting for the rain to stop. No such luck, and a few hours later, after a chat and a wander with V., it was time to shake the water out of the helmet and head home in the rain, defeated in my efforts to go for a longer ride. I snapped a picture of these positively fearless pigeons as they pecked around for soggy snacks. Nope, the rain didn’t bother them a bit. Looks like we’ve got a week full of stormy weather, and I might just leave the streets to them.
I actually have “lady sideburns” but not as long as those. I just got my hair cut too and it is just too short for me. If my face was young and fresh, I might like it. Plus I’m supposed to spike it up a little and I am not good at that at all. My hair grows fast so will recover quickly.
Hope you got the box by now!
I got the box today, Ma! Will call tomorrow with deets!
Sounds like you might be a little down with the rain and all. Sorry it is wet. Texas sure could use some of that. Adjusting again can be the pits. Hang tough.
Hi, Judy! You’re right–adjusting can be tough. I’m hanging in, one paw in front of the other, and things are looking up. I wish I could send this rain to Texas–so, so sad. Hope all is well on your end!
