The High Ponytail

We've actually had some pretty decent temperatures this week...high 80's low 90's.  I'm sorry to see them go.  My garden is starting to do the afternoon "wilt" thing. 

We haven't seen anything yet though.  The 10 day is calling for temperatures hovering around 100 again.

When it gets this hot, it's time for the high ponytail.

You girl's know what I mean.  You just can't take the heat on the back of your neck anymore.  So up, up, UP it goes.  This ain't no ponytail hanging down your back.  This is the "I can't take it anymore" yank up on top of your head and you seriously start to consider a short haircut.  Maybe a pixie.

I can't do anything with the curly hair I've developed in my later years, so going short is not an option.  It's long and pulled up high for me.  (Hmmm....Maybe I should have called this post "Thinking About Your Short and Curlies?"&;)

SM got his military buzz cut a few weeks ago.  Slap some sunglasses on that man and I'm getting turned on!  "Yes, Mr Police Officer.  Anything you say!"

(Maybe I'm getting delusional in the heat...grin)  It's as good of an excuse as any.

Tomorrow, I'm planning on doing the potato harvest.  5 pounds in the ground to start.  I wonder what I'll pull up?  Placing bets?


  1. Hope the potato harvesting goes well!

  2. Boy Tami I know just what you mean. Even though I cut over 3 feet of my hair off when we were in N.C. I did keep it long enough to put in a *high ponytail* during the annual heat-wave...and yes, it's in a ponytail right now...just now came in from watering the garden...and it's hot!
    Can't wait to see your potato harvest, I should be doing mine in about 2 weeks.

  3. I just spent 10 minutes looking for the paper that gives the estimation for what each plant will produce. Cant find it anywhere. Figures. I seem to remember each plant produces 4 pounds on average, or was it 4 potatoes. I am no help. Where do things always go around here.

  4. Can't wait to see them taters!

  5. I cant wait to see what your potato harvest is!!! And about the hair... Yeah, my brilliant idea was to go short for the summer and then grow it back over the winter... I cut off 10 inches (donated) and i HATE it!!! All I want to do it pull it into a pony tail and get it off of my face! Don't do it!!!

  6. Sometimes I forget what my hair looks like "down", or for that matter -dry, clean, cute :) I am lost without rubberbands and headbands!
