I flew INTO the cuckoos nest!

I know it's getting warmer, I can tell by my legs. I first had to uncover them from the many days growth. Sadly I had not shaved before Eve took apart the upstairs bathroom at the start of this week (her spring break project will be posted soon with pics!). Because my razor was somewhere in the depths of a laundry basket filled with bathroom paraphernalia I choose to not worry about it, until today. When it became a choice of
A- braid leg hair
B- let it go into dread locks
C- shave
I choose C and just grabbed a razor from the top of the basket. I don't know whose it was, but it was much sharper than mine and my legs are incredibly smooth now. That is except for the 15 scratches, 5 bruises, and 3 mosquito bites, and that's how I know spring is here! I inherited this amazing gift from my mom who wears even less clothing than I do to do more strenuous work, I'm sure her legs are showing the season as well.
Because I took a shower and shaved my legs I thought I would put on some make up. So while I was driving my van to pick up some items needed for the YWs shin dig I thought I was late to, but would have been exceedingly early to if I had not called to inform the hostess I was running late and found it was not until tomorrow- I decided to put on my mascara. Now don't blow a gasket, I've been putting on make on and off for 25 years! I know where my eye lashes are located on my face without the need of a mirror. I've done it many times, and no accident yet. I did peek quickly to make sure I didn't clump and was shocked to see black smudged from my nose and out to my cheek, that was new. I have always liked the bohemian look, but I had already shaved my legs, so I wiped it off.

I don't know how you can stand it. I have to shave about every other day because stuble drives me nuts, and if I had eyelashes like yours, I guess I wouldn't so much about mascara anyway. You guys took all the good genes beofore I could get my hands on them!

I wrote a nice long comment which just went away .... GRRRRR I agree with Sheralan, with eyes like yours you do not need makeup. And I wish you got those lashes from me!!!

Re the legs ..... I am so thankful many years ago (while you guys were kids!!!) I bought an epilady and I had to shave often at first but it pulls hair out by the roots and often I only shave once a month now. I Love it!! And I do run around the horses in shorts and barefeet at the stables. One of the girls who gives lessons there said she was determined to hate me because the first time she saw me I was leading a horse down the alleyway in bare feet, shorts and a t-shirt. She always stressed safety with her students ... jeans, boots and a helmet when riding. She was even more horrified when she saw me riding bareback in shorts, barefeet and no helmet. But she grew to love me (who can resist?) ;-) inspite of myself. Miraculously my legs aren't scratched (yet) or bitten or anything. Now my foot got stepped on and I think a few toes are broken but I've been there before. ~ Mom
