Side Step

This week has been spent doing everything except sewing/quilting.  I spent part of a day sorting out my art making space.  And as most of you know, when you do that sometimes you find things and 'get lost' playing with them.  I re-watched a few of my classes on BluPrint since finding out that they are shutting down sometime this year.  

The Farmers Market had a grand opening and I donned my mask and went shopping for fresh from the farm produce.  Of course some of it had to come home with me.  Otherwise, what was the point in going.  
I got some lovely green onions with nice bulbs on them,  fresh green beans, and fresh peaches. YUM.

I also got something I have never eaten before - at least not knowingly.  This lovely purple Kohlrabi.
A friend posted one on Facebook, so I knew what it was when I saw it.  I only got one because I have never tried it.  But if I like it, I will buy it again.  

One day Mom complained that her hair was getting in her face and bothering her.  She told me she wanted me to cut it.  Now, I will say that for years that was my job- cutting and styling hair in a salon, so don't freak out. Ha ha.  Mom hasn't had anyone else do her hair in years - except when I was in Mexico and my brother rolled it for her.  (I wish I could have watched that - as he is not trained at all in it.) I have also been watching "The Makeover Guy" on YouTube - so I was inspired to give her a hair makeover.   
We have cut the neckline short before, but not quite this short and I cut the sides shorter also.  The sides and bottom back are blown dry, but the top is still rolled - her choice- even though I could do it with a blowdryer and curling iron.  I think it looks very nice on her. 

The final verdict is that she is very happy with the new style and it doesn't get in her face at all.  So, Yaay, me! 

Until Next Time,

Very nice Gene! She must be very proud to have you. Especially since this social distancing thing, it is hard to get to barber shops and beauty shops.

Kohlrabi Leaves are good as well.

Well done on your Moms hair cut. She is lucky to have a loving son like you!

Oh, I LOVE kohlrabi. Just so you know, you will need a paring knife to take the skin off, it’s thick. Then just chunk it up and leave in water and ENJOY!! However, it does cause gas. I am jealous.

Nothing like fresh fruit and veggies. Mom's hair looks good. Just my style!!
Sorry I haven't been able to respond from my comments but I appreciate you!!

Fresh fruit and veggies are the best - especially from a Farmer's Market. I LOVE your Mom's new haircut - it looks very nice! You are a man of MANY talents - ;))

You have so many talents!

Careful, Gene - you may have a line at your door waiting for haircuts - haha! Seriously, though, you did a nice job on your mom's hair. It looks really nice. I have tried kohlrabi, actually really like it, but not purple. I'll have to watch for that. There's nothing more fun than a farmer's market. It's like going to a fabric store and seeing all the colors, except it's all veggies and flowers, right?

Oh her hair looks adorable!

I've never heard of a Kohlrabi and wouldn't even know how to prepare it. The fresh peaches sound excellent. I may need to get some for peaches and cream. You did a great job on your Mom's hair.
