Hello book friends! I thought I would share a few more pictures that I've taken this week on my solitary walks. I'll save the 'best' for last.
Beautiful colors here and so full of blossoms!
More wildflowers with some purple sage plants behind. The purple sage are not in bloom as yet, but they will be.
I think this looks hopeful - you can see the blossom buds that are on this cactus. Blooms will be coming and they are surprisingly beautiful.
Told you that I saved the 'best' for last. Can you see this racer snake that was in my front yard? My hubby actually took the picture. I ran inside and told him there was a snake outside and he quickly came and assured me that it was not poisonous. We found a snake skin in that area a couple of years ago that was about 5 ft long. My hubby surmised that it might be from this same snake. Just a reminder to keep my eyes open on my walks. The snakes are among us.
OK, I know that in the grander scheme of things the fact that my monthly haircut won't happen is not earth shattering. However....I have short hair. I like it to be like I like it to be. I don't color or highlight it and it's mostly gray now. I get it cut and trimmed on a fairly regular 4-week schedule. Of course, my next appointment was scheduled for yesterday. And my hairstylist is not cutting hair right now. As is wise and prudent and necessary. She called me earlier this week and said she was closing her shop right now and, as she had been planning a move to another location, wouldn't be open for several weeks to come - regardless of when we're all circulating in the world again. She said she was nervous that some of her clients would decide to color and highlight themselves and she'd have a big mess on her hands later. She also said - don't cut your hair. I promised I wouldn't (it would be very bad if I did), but I did ask if it was OK if I shaved my head. Ha! She said to 'remain shaggy'! We'll see how it goes.
