Today was another quiet, relaxed day. I did some cooking and cleaning, but, I also spent some time sewing on my quilt.
In the early afternoon, friends of mine brought over their electric hair clippers and daughter shaved my head for me. I needed to have the head shaved for Wednesday, when I go to get fitted for a wig. Daughter used the lowest setting on the clippers, which was 1/8 of an inch, which left a bit of a stubble. I hope it would be OK, because the only other way I know to remove the stubble would have been to shave with a regular razor and I'm afraid to use that in case I nicked myself.
So, as of this afternoon, the new me looks like this:
|"All Shaven and Shorn"|
It's going to take a little getting used to, but I don't think I look too bad with a shaved head:
|The New Me|
The blouse I am wearing is one that I had sewn, using Simplicity pattern #7905. The pattern is for a dress, but I shortened it to make a blouse.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Last night's rain shower
- The garden getting watered
- Today's sunshine and lovely weather
- Friends lending me their hair clippers
- Daughter shaving my head so I can get fitted for the wig
How was your Sunday?
Oh Bless, you are beautiful! So vibrant and such a wonderful smile!! Honestly, you're adorable with or without hair!!! :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Carolyn. I debated long and hard about posting a picture of myself, but then, decided it would be OK. :)Delete
You have beautiful eyes and a lovely smile - you look great. Good luck with the wig fitting.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Athene. I guess my new motto will be "Bald is Beautiful"! But the wig will come in handy when I have to go out in public - fewer stares and so forth.Delete
Having not seen a picture of you before, it's not a shock to see you without hair, but I do want to say that you look fabulous! Leaving a stubble will probably help by preventing itchiness, I would think. Have a great day today!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Nathalie. I never even thought about the stubble helping to prevent itchiness!Delete
You look beautiful.. [and I love that blouse. the fabric looks pretty on you too]. Hope you love your new wig.ReplyDelete
SO happy you got rain for your garden.
Thank you, Judy. The fabric is what I found in my mother's stash, after her death. I liked the color and decided to make a blouse for myself with it. The garden got more rain early this morning, so I am happy about that.Delete
You look beautiful, you look kind and the blouse shows you are talented. Sending hugs and prayers xReplyDelete
Thank you, Sybil, you are very kind to say so. Thank you, too, for the hugs and prayers.Delete
Bless, you look as if you have just had a super makeover, and the lipstick matching the gorgeous blouse just looks great!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Bushlady. LOL, I just have the one shade of lipstick, so it matching the blouse was entirely coincidental!Delete
Bless, you are absolutely beautiful! :) I am so happy that you shared a picture with us. Your blouse is very pretty!ReplyDelete
Are you sure you are heading out for a wig fitting? You look dolled up enough for a night out on the town instead! :) I'm just teasing you.
Honestly, seeing your lovely smile made my day!
Thank you, Dawn. The wig fitting will be on Wednesday. Any "dolling up" was done for the photo! :DDelete
Thank you, Jess. I wondered if I should post the picture or not, but decided it would be OK. Everyone has been so kind about it.Delete
You look beautiful Bless. I bet Little Bless was looking for those eyes in the back of your head that she thought you had when she was little....now of course knowing you were just wise back then too. I told DH if he lost his hair I would shave my head too. Hugs and prayers Bless. From FrugalReplyDelete
Thank you, Frugal. Oh, those eyes at the back of my head is a long running joke between the two of us, now! :D Little Bless asked me if I'd like her to shave her head, but I said no. I honestly believe she would have done it had I said yes!Delete
You look FANTASTIC! Your little head is perfectly round. When my dear lil' Mama lost her hair during treatment, I told her that she had missed her hairstyle years ago! You are beautiful!!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Joy. :) The hair has started to grow now. I should probably post an updated picture!Delete
I also think that it is a lovely photo. I can't imagine how you would look with long hair!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Lady Ella. I still had eye brows in that picture! I lost my eyebrows and lashes, later. But, it all grew back, eventually. My hair is now just below my shoulders. :)Delete
