Hi gang! How was your weekend? Mine was productive even in the sweltering heat. Yes that’s right, I complain about cold and hot temperatures, rain, lack of rain….pretty much all types of weather.LOL!
In addition to working on my sunburn as I tended to our ever-expanding flowerbed, I was able to cram in a quick DIY project. I am always looking for different ways to help my little man become self-sufficient and on a hot day, that means being able to get a cold glass of water without yelling to me or his dad to get him one. Of course, I found a cute little project on Pinterest that was perfect for this.
Here is my take.
It wasn’t super fancy but it did the trick. Of course, I will be making a couple more of these, and when I do, I’ll be using a stronger magnet.
Next came the family hair cuts – in this heat a buzz cut really does do the trick to cool you right down. We started off with my little man.
Truth be told, he hates getting his hair cut because he can’t stand to feel the hair on his face, back, etc. Previously, we tried giving him a blow dryer to blow the hair away from his face as I cut it….boy did that make a mess. There ways hair all over our bathroom for weeks; not a good look.
This round I gave little man a mirror and cut his hair in funny ways making him giggle. (Side note – this is a fake-let’s-get-this-over-with smile).
I wish I could have taken some pics as I went but speed was a factor here. When I was done he jumped right into the shower and was all smiles. (This is a thank-God-it’s-over-I-love-my-hair smile)
Next was Jason who made quick work of his own hair and only missed one little piece in the back. I was impressed. And then the grand finale was me. That’s right I buzzed it right off without a thought. I WISH!!! It is so stinkin hot that sometimes I end up cursing my shoulder length locks. But so far they have gotten a stay of execution…….for now. 😉
So what have you guys been up to this weekend?
Stay tuned for some much-needed Monday motivation.
