crazy november coming up..... and: hair cuts are dandy things. :)

So I got my hair cut today, after the church service, after pulling shots of espresso for about 10 or more drinks...
I bit my lip when I heard and felt the faint snip-snip of her sharp, sharp scissors doing away with about 4 inches or so of length.
Miss Joann was a bit put out that I wanted more than a trim. She loves long hair. But I showed her what I wanted. And since she's not one to stick to one hair style or color for longer than need --or want-- be, she didn't judge me for doing away with the super-long locks, and going for some change. Some people are very attached to hair. hahah
After the last layer was cut, she brushed her fingers through the ends, checking the evenness. "Fact is, honey, you've got gorgeous hair."
(the top right is the "before" picture, obviously. all the others, Rachel took:)

I wish I could do NaNoWriMo.

But, as I told Cristina: (her writing blog) & (her mommy blog)  .........
I don't "have the guts, the inspiration, the motivation, the time, the..... yeah. I'm SO full of excuses."
Just wait a second there.
I have other excuses reasons why I can' do NaNoWriMo. Especially not in November. Starting...tomorrow.
#1: Any day now, Anna's going up north to visit for a week or so and help a friend who's going to have her 4th child any day now... That's 1 whole week I'm the eldest sister. Um....that's going to be interesting.
#2: November, I'm shooting for starting to reupholster my wingback chair. Yes, that chair.... I tore it apart, yanked all the staples out with an awl and needle nose pliers, haven't even blogged that yet, and now I need to use that $20-bucks-a-yard beautiful Christopher Lowell, driftwood-something-or-other re-upholstery fabric I bought at Joann's...... I don't think I've told y'all about that one yet. ;) Can't wait to type out that adventure. Hah.

This is where I love how C.S. Lewis tells comforts me, what with my little creative obsessions of painting and writing (coffee doesn't apply to this quote. lol):
Even in literature and art, 
no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: 
whereas if you simply try to tell the truth 
(without caring twopence how often it has been told before) 
you will, nine times out of ten, 
become original without ever having noticed it.
[C.S. Lewis] 

p.s. I am so in love with this song [Silver Coin] by Angus & Julia Stone. Which is why, presently, I haven't changed my blog music playlist:) At least I know another person who loves it too:)

Christina said...

Your hair looks very nice! A trim and a change of hair are fun!

This year really will start getting busier it seems! Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. Wow!

Oh you do sound so busy, busy!! Well, you should think about doing NaNo next year!! Or else pick a random month and hold your own! :) Words written are just as sweet no matter what the month!

Holy crap, your hair was long! And it is beautiful both ways. If you ever want to trade, just let me know...

Nice hair cut!

I wish I could do NaNoWriMo too. Maybe next year.
