A Rather Blustery Day

My neighbor called me yesterday afternoon.  "If you know of anyone that lost a brown and silver tarp, I have it in my garage," he said.  I looked out the window.  "That's mine!" I told him.  I had put a great big rock on top of it.  I guess it wasn't enough.

We had some crazy windy weather yesterday.  Nothing in comparison to those poor, poor people down south.  My heart really goes out to them.  Yesterday's windy weather was a big topic of conversation around here.  It was the second day of fishing season - the first day was terrible cold rain.  Yesterday, the wind dried off your fish before you got it up on the bank!

I'm hoping to check my hives today and make sure the bees have eaten the candy to get their queen out of the box.  I'm worried about this chilly, windy weather.  They don't need this!

Today is Homestead Barn Hop Monday.  Hop on over to Homestead Revival to see what's going on!

A Rather Blustery Day 
Hum, dum, dum, dee, dee, dum
Hum, dum, dum
Oh the wind is lashing lusterly
And the trees are thrashing thrusterly
And the leaves are rustling gusterly
So it's rather safe to say
That it seems that it may turn out to be
It feels that it will undoubteadly
Looks like a rather blustery day today
It seems that it may turn out to be
Feels that it will undoubteadly
Looks like a rather blustery day today

  1. The wind blew here too. A barn lost half of its roof and a large pine sheared-off and fell on a house. All this happened in Odin hollow, yesterday. Must have been one of those mini-tornados (micro-bursts events).

  2. I'm saying prayers for my bees.
