Look at that Gray….

I had the opportunity to look at the gray…straight up…and to be honest? I don’t hate it.  It is true that the accidental blue has helped with the grow out and I get more compliments than criticisms. Don’t get me wrong…there are haters and some of them are even friends…

The fact that my teeth have shifted and now I have a slight gap between my front teeth bothers me way more than the gray/blue hair. This is not my best picture and I didn’t ask my Ren Faire neighbor about posting the picture….it’s on a public sight so I am guessing it’s okay?  It’s the only picture of me at the faire that I have…it was early and still cool which is why I was wearing the scarf like I was all bundled up…

Also….if I am not allowed to sit down for 8 hours….than I am totally wearing Clarks…I don’t care if they don’t match. This is a one and done event so I am not going to go off and make a big deal about the craziness of that rule when I work alone. I am thankful for the opportunity and the experience but I will not be back next year. One more weekend…..I can do this!

Today..work was work and there isn’t a single thing that I want to elaborate on at the  moment… There was one part of the morning when I was working on an insurance check or monitoring productivity when I saw something slam into the window. Me being me…went outside to investigate. It turns out a female goldfinch flew into the window. Once I found her outside she was pretty still and the closer I got..the heavier her breathing became. I did not want to add extra stress to the situation so I gave her a pep talk. “I know you are scared but take a second to breathe. It will be okay… I am going to go back inside and give you time to collect yourself and then I will come back and check on you. Hopefully you are just stunned.”  I went back out and hour or so later and she was gone..she must have just been stunned. Whew!

On the way out of work today…I was on a mission. I needed out of there stat! One of the nurses noted “look at her fly”. The second I opened the back door to leave there was a whoosh and I was staring down a big beautiful dragonfly! I looked at him and said “I get it ….change is coming but for right now at this moment….I need to get out of here!”

I came home and started dinner which took way longer than anticipated. I washed my scrubs and my bed but did not get out there in time to cut the grass. There is always tomorrow….Zia

About dragonflyzia

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.

    The changes that come with age …. and there are many ….. are at times tough to adjust to. Yet over time (hopefully) we do adjust. Thank goodness the goldfinch was OK. I’ve had plenty of birds fly into our windows and not all of them made it. Terrible to watch a bird die. And how cool a dragonfly flew when you opened the door. Yep, change is here that is for sure! And you probably won’t even have to look for it. Crossing fingers they are good changes for you !!
