Yes my hair is now gray.

In case you didn't notice in my previous post, yes, my hair is now gray.  For years I've been coloring my hair and had grown tired of trying to keep the roots done.  If you've never tried to grow your hair out after coloring it with permanent color, believe me it's no treat.  At one point my gray hair scared me so much that I bought a box of Clairol "light ash blond" and now I still have that to grow out.  It's very hard to stay away from the hair color aisle.  I know that some of you will think I've lost my mind, but I'm happy with it now and think I can live with it.  My hubbie loves it and that's all that matters.  I have natural curly hair and have to flat iron it into submission.  Curly dark hair was o.k., but the curly gray hair makes me look like a little old lady with a kinky perm.  Wait a minute, I am a little old lady!

Now in case the gray hair doesn't make you think I've lost my mind, try this recipe out:
Fill some Bugles with peanut butter and then dip the top into melted chocolate.  My daughter and son in law loved them, but I thought they were more work than they were worth.  Try stuffing peanut butter into a 100 or more bugles and see what I mean!

Going Away Party!

Wow! It's been almost a month since my last post! First of all I would like to thank everyone for their kind words of encouragement and prayers for my mother. She is doing very well and working hard to get that knee back in working order.
The other reason I've been away so long is because we've been working away at helping this good looking guy, our son Eric, get packed and ready to leave for Spain. He left on Tuesday and arrived safely in Madrid and is on the hunt for an apartment. You can watch his journey for the next 9 months on his blog "Shuffle the Cards". I believe this title was the name of the painting on his blog that was done by a famous artist in the part of Spain where he will be teaching.
I'm wayyyyyyyy behind on painting but hope to get back to work soon as my mother heals. Can't wait to pick up a brush!
