Sometimes you just make do with what you have at hand.
In the tractor, during seeding, I realized I didn’t have a hair tie. (Note: I do appreciate how clean my farmer keeps his equipment, but at times like this couldn’t he forget 1 rubber band, piece of string, etc…?) I was almost resigned to the fact that I would have to do without until I spotted it; my farmer’s lunch box. Luckily I had brought him a hot sandwich that had been wrapped in aluminum foil.
Found a clean piece of foil, twisted it into a rope, wrapped it around my hair, and voila. Farm wife improvisation for the win!
