Pondering Red

As I was pondering my coffee this morning and looking around my kitchen, I found myself wondering when I had become so addicted to the color red. As I recall, as a child I hated the color. I have red hair and my mother told me that since my hair was red I could never wear the colors red, pink, yellow or orange. Wow, that is alot of power for one little color right? Now 30 years latter I have a cranberry colored bedroom . . .


A red toaster . . .



A red tea kettle . . .


A red microwave . . .




And a brand new red kitchen radio! YEA!!!
With the arrival and instillation of my radio I now feel closer in that chapter of my life, the chapter where my old kitchen radio was so ruthlessly wretched from my life. But I digress . . . I started really looking around and realized I have 3 red crock pots, red laundry baskets, toy buckets and linens for the RV. I also have a red durango and three out of five children are red heads! Hmmmmmmmmm . . . I wonder if I have been subconsciously rebelling against what my mother said for the past 30 years? More than likely it's just because red heads have more fun and red is a fun color! (wink) LOL

As a former red head, then blond, dark brown, and finally have Moses Hair person .. I agree being red is fun! All my colors were natural transitions in my body, but when I see myself as the carrot red orange moppet of a child ... YES, BTW, really like your red appliances!

LOL, no I don't dye my hair. My red hair is my most favorite body feature. My twins (one boy, one girl) also have natural red hair as well as my oldest dd, who does like to dye hers - blond - yuck! LOL
