49 before 50: Blue Hair

 Can you see it, can you see it?!
This is my second attempt at dye-ing my hair blue.  Last weekend you could just about see it if you squinted.
Another half-hour’s-worth of Midnight Blue and I am… Dawn Blue?!
But it is definitely there this time and I am really enjoying it.  Even if it has the effect of making the rest of my hair look grey!

I took these pictures in the top woods this morning.  I am challenging myself to walk faster, lift my knees a little higher, get the heart pumping that bit harder.  And every so often I do a little sprint between the trees.  It all helps.

The dog got bored when the camera appeared and he wandered off.
I found him sitting outside the house when I returned.
Lazy mutt!

I never tire of taking spooky pictures of the tunnel through the pines.
I just missed capturing 5 roe deer taking their morning constitutional.

Back indoors now with my knitting and a good not-my-sort-of book.
I treated myself to a new project bag from knitrundig.
The drawstring is elasticated and secures with a toggle.  It is just the right size for a one-skein project.  In this case, it contains a Stovetop hat for The Girl.
But didn’t you just knit her one of those?
Yes… and she loved it.  But then it was lost on the bus.
I am told there were tears.
What else can a mother do but knit another?
