Life has definitely taken me to places I never thought I would go to....but nothing more exciting than where I am right now! Welcome to my world...

A do it yourself kind of girl....BAD HAIR DAY...and the trouble it causes me!?







Ok, I am a do it yourself kind of girl...and sometimes it works out great...and sometimes..it turns into pure d crap...that someone....USUALLY ...my husband has to bail me out of. Well, today...I decided that I really needed to touch up my greying roots.This is only because I have had not so good results from salons here...NOT all...but enough BAD experiences to make me gun shy( which explains the orange hair in the above photo...DS# 2 informed me I looked like Marion Cunningham..from HAppy Days after this fiasco) ..so I mixed up the wash out stuff I brought from the US (redken) and put it on my hair, then put the "plastic shower cap" over it to CURE! All went well, nothing turned green or heh...heh...Burgundy ( thats a whole other story)!!! As I went into the bathroom to rinse...and thought, I had showered this morning before Church...so figured I'd just hang over the edge of my tub to rinse. Now as I began to lather up....I noticed the bright red/brown droplets appearing on bath, and bath wall...then I remembered that although I had put on my Texas A& M AGGIE mom shirt( which is indeed burgundy and a very safe shirt to wear when dying my hair!) I still had a pair of White (YIKES!) pants on. I wear them with lots of stuff...and it is too late to back out of this whole hanging over the tub thing. So DECIDE that I MUST tip further into the tub...to protect my WHITE pants! Big mistake....NOW I think you MAY be thinking I did something silly like fall INTO the tub....but let me tell you that I am way to BIG to tip into the tub...but as I SQUIRMED, WIGGLED, TILTED....AND TRIED DESPERATELY not to fall into the tub...I BUMPED THE EDGE OF the TUB a bit too hard....and I heard the crack! I actually cracked a rib. Now my husband is a miracle worker, but he couldn't fix this "HUMPTY" up!!!! So tonight am feeling the STING when I breathe...and when I accidentally bend ...or when I get up off the chair, or cough, giggle, sneeze... YOU GET THE PICTURE! Not on my agenda of things to have to deal with this week. BY the way....MY HAIR LOOKS GREAT!!!! But I definitely cracked the rib, unfortunately it is up high...so can't be wrapped or anything...so I am just going to have to scale back a few of my goals of things to get done BEFORE I was to leave for the US on the 28th of October. That said, I did have a good week, almost finished Baltimore block no. 11, and did finish a couple of works in progress. Have many 4 patches made with leaders /enders...to make into blocks this week...so may just get one more quilt done before leaving for the STates. Will get a few photos from camera to post in next couple of days. Have to deliver books to my township library...more that were donated from home...so need to get that done.I have posted a photo of two little girls who were in the library when I delivered books there last year. My generous friends have sent every book you see in the photo.These shelves were empty when I first went to the library. It was pathetic, my home in Texas had more books than the Children's section at this township library.But another box has arrived from Pennsylvania...thanks to my brother and sisters, nieces and nephews. I am so blessed to have people who care about others in my life. Who knows maybe I will see something fun to take a photo of on my way out there. The photo of the shanty type of house was taken across the street from the Library. They are now in the process of building a better shack I am happy to say. Probably won't have running water in it...but it will most likely have electricity...which is better than not!I hope you all have a great day...I certainly plan to...as long as I don't snicker, sneeze, cough or laugh!!!

Oh no! I don't know whether to laugh or commiserate with you! The picture of you over the tub is so clear in my mind but to hear a "crack"! Did you go to the hospital? The only advice was to wait it out? Don't catch cold whatever you do!! Blessings on your library.

Oh you poor thing! I hope you are feeling better! Can't wait to see a photo of your Halloween Costume, and love all the Baltimore blocks...they are something I want to do soon, as I am originally from Maryland, lol!!...And I love the look of them..

Sorry to hear about your misfortune with the tub and your rib. The library looks well stocked now too! Enjoy your stay in Clarksville..we lived there and loved the area! Not sure if the great quilt store is still there or not, but it's called Country Quilting located on Main Street.

Oh my - who would have ever thought that beauty could be so dangerous *s*
I hope that you mend quickly.
Love the library photo - you, your family and friends have been very generous in getting the shelves stocked - I bet it's appreciated more than you can ever know.

This post made me smile - not out of malice or anything but I have a similar-ish story. 2 weeks ago I dyed my hair too and had to re-paint all my windowsill as the dye flicked everywhere and stained the woodwork. Not in the same league as cracking a rib though - lol !

Oh dear ... I was waiting to hear you fall IN the tub, but cracking a rib ???? NOT too funny, but this is also how I do MY hair rinse ... I will think of you every 6 weeks, when I re-cover my gray. Hope you feel better soon!

Sad, sad little shack. Solutions are not easy, are they.

Hope you heal soon! (Hope you don't mind me saying... but the Afrikaans for BBQ is 'braai')

Lovely about all the generous gifts of books - so kind!!

Hope your rib is better soon. I can get myself in to some pretty interesting situations. Good work on the library project :-)!
