National Hat Day!

Come celebrate National Hat Day with me today.

Watch as I model a few fun hats from my collection.

Maybe I’ll be able to meet people again in the future as I show off my hat collection at libraries and clubs.

I hope you had some fun watching my video today.

This memory made me cry

Today’s reading is from 1983, when we celebrated our 10th anniversary.

I did okay reading until the end when tears came.

I love my memories, even if they make me sad sometimes.

Bob and I got closer as the days and years passed.

I miss him so much.

A small treasure hunt

You are helping me by watching my treasure hunt blogs. It inspires me to do more searching in closets and back rooms.

Things need to be sorted.

Things need to be discarded. like most that I discover.

Follow my journey of finding treasures and tossing junk.

Haircut day

I took my time getting my hair cut. My last cut was in January. This is what I looked like this morning after months without clipping.

Here’s the reveal.

Though I had debated about cutting my hair, I’m happy with the result.

The different looks of me

Those are the current me. Now I’m just perusing old photos to see some of my past hair styles.

Enough already. I’m really starting to feel old.

I will continue to think about my future hair cut. I’m trying to picture myself with a completely different style and wondering how adventurous I might be.
