A 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

 This *from Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day and "the rain rain rain came down down down" (also from Winnie the Pooh)  have been in my head all day today!!
 I think when daylight comes tomorrow, there won't be any leaves left on the trees!  Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, we have had bands of gusty winds all day.  I've been enjoying my dogwood which had just reached it's peak fall color, but it has been taking a beating today. (We attempted some photos on the rock under the dogwood on Friday.  Apparently, I wasn't low enough and grand babygirl was more interested in seeing what I was up to than looking at the camera!)
 The hornet nest was disappearing by chunks throughout the day and gone shortly after lunch. 

 Thanks also to Sandy, my hubby was home today so we were able to get a few things done around the house that have been low on the priority list!  Did I mention it is so very quiet around here, other than wind and rain?  We are empty nesters for a few days while our other family is on vacation.  I'm hoping they will have a great week away from nurses and appointments and us and will be able to enjoy being just the four of them.


  1. A small benefit from a terrible storm be we must appreciate thos rare moments of quiet despite the gales of wind...

  2. Your poem says it all.Typical day here since "Sandy" calmed down. Oopsy hold onto the tipping baby!

  3. oops, I forgot to reference the poem! It's from "Winnie the Pooh and The Blustery Day!" A song as only Pooh could sing it.

  4. All smiles to discover your sweet pic today...oh how I miss those little peanuts! Thank you for the silly pic! Hope you had a restful quiet week Grammy! <3
