Out with the old, in with the new

This is "May" (short for Maytag). She is a 54-year old washing machine that seriously deserves retirement. While she tried her hardest to keep going, sometimes she would just pause for a breather. She is now resting in our basement until we can send her out on a cruise for a well-deserved vacation.
And now this is "Sam" (short for Samsung). Shiny and new, with lots of buttons. She is the sleek, modern, super-efficient gal with an advanced technology education. She will now be taking over May's work.
(Kupila sam novu veš ma
šinu. Ona stara je napravljena 1956-te godine, pa joj je vrijeme da penzioniše.)
And here is a head-shot of May. Sweet, plump and worn-out face.
And here is Sam. Rawwrr! She is hot.

Do It Yourself haircuts and sweaters

So yesterday I cut my husband's hair. It looks pretty good (in my opinion). My experience with hair cutting is limited to cutting my sisters' doll's hair and my own bangs. Jeff actually trusted me with the task, and I did my best.
Not bad, eh? (Prevod za moju rodbinu u Bosni: Ja evo osisala svoga cojka. Ma beskrajno sam talentovana, zar ne?) - That was an explanation to my relatives in Bosnia. I found that they look at my blog, so I thought I'd drop a few lines in Bosnian so they know what's going on.
I also got a lot of knitting done this weekend. This is the back of my sweater Cate. Got a long way still to go, but I am enjoying the process. (Prevod: Evo pletem sebi dzemper. Ovo su ledja.)

That's all, folks! Come back tomorrow for more of my DIY life.
