I hope you all are doing well. I have been putting this table together on my back porch today. It is so steamy I have sweat dripping off my head straight down to the crack of my toes. HA! You thought I was going to say something else, didn’t you?! So glad I am in a cotton gown doing this. The joy of the south! Heat and humidity.
Their are many southerners that do like to entertain outside in the summer. I wonder how they can stand it. They even have weddings outside! In the summer!
Today we will grab a plate and go inside straight to the kitchen.
I thought about putting candles in the candlesticks. But you see I once burned my bangs off! Yes, I did! Didn’t know it till the next day when I was fixing my hair. I do use a lot of hair spray and I had lit candles around the house and poof went the bangs…it was very obvious too. Not all of the bangs but a big slice of them. I don’t know why I didn’t smell burnt hair. I guess they were really singed. You know it has a distinctive smell. Not a good smell. But my nose doesn’t work like it used to. I use to be able to smell everything. My mama was like that and so was my grandmother. But the older you get it seems it doesn’t work as well as it used to. So with me busy putting something together on this table and being as hot as I can barely stand it, I figured there was a good chance of burning my bangs off again.
I probably use more hair spray than any woman around. I really go through a lot of it. In the summer I have to use more because it’s like cooking a soufflé. You want a souffle to rise and not fall flat. My hair has to rise and be sprayed and then set. It has to set inside where it is cool. After a few hours inside I can go out because it will stay poofier longer. It won’t fall flat as quick. I know a lot of women don’t mind if they have flat hair. I CANNOT have flat hair.
I realize I am supposed to be talking about the plates. But I really didn’t want to today. I thought talking about my hair would be more entertaining.
I did try a different look with this yellow floral fabric. It’s pretty but the yellow reminded me of the sun and I am already so hot.
So I took a couple more photos and put the yellow up. The white at least looks cool.
I know what you’re thinking ~ and I haven’t had a drop!
