It's around 50 degrees outside. Sorry for the meteorological updates, but that's an exciting thing this weekend! Snow and Ice are having a melting party! They invited their good friend, Mud!
I did manage to run in the outside a couple of times this week. I hadn't done that since before I came down with the flog and then our outside became overly white and frozen. I'd tread the mill a few times, but the problem with that is that the treadmill doesn't go downhill. So now my downhill running parts are making their hiatus known.
On a related note, I'm grateful for Burt's Bees Miracle Salve, despite the creepy face on the lid. If not for my companion canister of Burt's Bees, creepy face would be my title because my face would have mostly scrubbed off from the weather.
Speaking of scrubbing off, our school district did their Bald 4 Bucks event this week. Kids raise money for leukemia and lymphoma research, then have their heads shaved at a grand assembly. I'm sure readers here remember when Wolfgang went bald a couple three years ago because such events are major for readers here...
No, Meego did not get into the barber chair, but our neighbor friend "Red" did. Thing that makes this notable is that no one can remember the last time Red had a haircut. That's him, jammin' on the marimba at last week's percussion competition:
Friday morning, when he left for school, Red's hair was as long as, if not longer, than mine. Now, he's our neighborhood honeydew!
So it's a fun and visible way to raise money for charity, but really, it makes me grateful for healthy kids who will voluntarily shave their heads. Or not.
