As a child I had very light blond hair and as I got older it got darker. My natural hair color now is dishwater blond with, thanks to my children, a few streaks of silver grey. I'd like to just let my hair turn naturally but... Mr. Macchiato is not ready for it. Neither are my parents. Or my kids. Sigh. I have dyed my hair dark on many occasions in the hopes that it would make me look more like my mother. She's gorgeous. I had to listen to my guy friends in high school talk about how "Foxy" she was... and then ask me how come I didn't look like either of my parents. A good and kind mother would not be so pretty. Just kidding Mom! It did kinda suck though.
Evidence this morning that spring will be sprung in full here soon. There is no green on the trees but... green is creeping out across all the lawns in our neighborhood. Some rotten neighbors have greener grass than most. Not us, darn it. There are daffodils and tulips making appearances in other yards. We don't have any. A lot of those flowers get killed every year by our weather. The green leaves of my day lillies have come up. I can't wait for everything to come back to life!
This is some exciting blog post! Woo Hoo!! I really should be cleaning but, you know, I don't want to right now. I have to leave in a bit to get Double Shot. I spent my morning at the County Clerk & Recorder getting the tags for my Explorer. I named her Nilla. That is short for Vanilla. Do y'all name your cars? I think I already shared somewhere on here that Mr. Macchiato told me I was "plain" one time and I got very upset. He tried to make it better by explaining himself and said that I was "plain like vanilla." That didn't help much. He then went on and said, "you know, wholesome... girl next door kind of plain." Yes, he is still paying. He will pay until the day he dies. On several occasions since he's tried to convince me that vanilla is exotic. What?!?!
So, if y'all name your vehicles, what are their names? Wait... have I asked this question before??? Hmmmmm...
