We were on a 2 hr delay at work today. I figure I'd make the best of my time and color my hair.... my roots were showing, I needed a shower and I had 2 hrs.
I put all the stuff in my hair and went to wash the little squeeze thingy you mix and apply the hair dye with..... uh oh.
VERY low water pressure. We've lost water before and that is how it started.... with really low water pressure.
Oh crap. I can't leave the dye on my head!
Well. I have been reading all the Laura Ingalls Wilder books... there is snow outside. I could bring in buckets of snow and heat them on the stove to wash the dye out of my hair. I perked up feeling very pioneering of spirit.
Oh. Wait a minute.
I don't think "nice" girls dyed their hair back then. Pretty sure only prostitutes colored their hair. Especially red. My pioneering spirit flagged a little.
Not to mention that I tried to make some cardamom bread... when I pulled out the yeast packets in my cupboard one packet said "Best if used by Oct 2005". The other packet said, "Best if used by Sept 2008". I went with the 08... bread never did rise. I baked it anyway. It's pretty dense.
If I were a true pioneer I wouldn't waste it. I'd eat it anyway and be glad to have it.
Turns out I had enough water pressure to take my shower.... probably a good thing I'm not a pioneer. I don't think I'd be a very good at it!
Still no goats in heat... tho' none of them are venturing out of their houses and I didn't venture in to get a look this morning... note to self *crawl IN quonset hut tonight to look at goat private parts.*
