Ahhh, A Small Taste Of Freedom Does Wonders

This little caterpillar entertained Wee One for a long, long time Saturday afternoon.

I feared for the little bug’s life but it escaped eventually……lucky for the caterpillar!

Saturday night, Bubba and his best friend Cho were the ‘waterboys‘ for the Osage Man Dancers.

The Osage’s had a big, delicious, dinner and a small gathering Prayer Dance. The boys provided the water for the dancers. It is an honor being asked to participate in the dance ceremony. It was Bubba’s first time to participate and not just watch.

Cho is the Head-Young-Man Dancer at the October’s Red Ribbon Pow Wow. It is a dance against drug abuse. I am looking forward to going.

Late Sunday afternoon, Scooter and I snuck off for a ride.

It was a beautiful day even though it was cloudy and a bit muggy outside. We were gone for over 2 hours.

I left my cell phone at home so I could not be bothered. It felt good to be free!

Here is a photo of how short my hair is. See? I was not fooling when I said it was way above my shoulders!

It is okay, I am used to it now and I like it. One good thing about this shorter hairstyle, it is very low maintenance.

Tonite Bubba has a home football game. Wish us luck, I hope we remain undefeated!

**Update: WE WON! 22-8**

This week is a busy one. Once again I wish I could temporarily clone myself.

  1. Aniin BG, LOVE the hair!!! I was right, it is cute and sexy. 😀

    Good luck with the game tonight and I’m happy to see the strong connection to your heritage.

    Glad Scooter was up for a ride with you.

  2. Your hair looks great! Really, very nice.

    As for the poor caterpiller, I’m glad for the bug. My little guy picks up bugs too, and they don’t always make it…

  3. Wow – for some reason I never pictured you with blonde hair. (the earth has tilted slightly for me – split second – and now its back to normal).

  4. Love the hair! Wow, 2 hours of uninterrupted horse time! Yeehaw!!! You scored bigtime! Glad you all had a good weekend!

  5. Wow! Scooter looks fabulous!! Great picture!

    WeeOne is so cute with the little catapiller! Probably the catapiller didn’t think so……..

    Love your hair from the back, how about a shot from the front or are you camera shy??

    Good luck Bubba! I’ll be cheering for you!!!

  6. These photos are really fun. Wee One is always fun to catch up with and Scooter is just a beautiful horse! Glad you had some quality time without the Cell Phone.

  7. Caterpillars are better than Playstations!

    Your haircut looks wonderfully easy 🙂

    I wrote a poem .. “Be Good to Yourself”.. thinking of you…

    I really like your hair short. It will frame your face.

    Take it easy this week, breathe deep when you find yourself on the edge. You’ll do just fine and we’re here to listen if you don’t!!! LOL

  17. I can’t believe Wee One didn’t scrunch that caterpillar and turn it into mush. He must have been really enthralled with it!

    You cheated on the pic of your hair. LOL I would do the same. I hate having my picture taken.

    Glad you got to go for a nice rice and that you left your cell phone behind. I swear those darn things are worse than a leash!
