A Little BreezyWoman in the Middle | February 15, 2016
The wind started up again yesterday, turning into gale force winds last night. We obviously have some leaks because the wind was somehow getting into my house and making my bedroom door rattle. I finally got up and went to sleep on the couch, where there weren’t any rattling doors. Of course, with the kind of winds we are having, it would be impossible to keep all the wind out of the house.
I looked at the weather in our local newspaper this morning. It said today would be “breezy.” Really? If this is breezy, what would wind be, a category five hurricane? A tornado?
I posted something on Facebook about the wind. So far I have 96 likes and many comments like “if this is breezy, I would hate to see the wind.” One woman mentioned that she just moved here and the wind is driving her nuts. I feel for her. We get a lot of wind in my fair city, much more than the surrounding nearby areas. All we can tell her is drink lots of water and keep the lotion bottle near by. Our winds are very dry and everything gets parched.
Hubby was out in the back yard at 4:30 this morning. I will have to ask him later what he was trying to rescue. Most likely a seat cushion or the cover off a piece of lawn furniture.
Needless to say, I am not worrying about my hair today. Nothing I can do, short of gluing it all down with superglue, will keep my hair looking decent when I go out of the house. Nice thing is, everyone else’s hair will look just as bad.
When the girls were little, I had a special hairstyle for days like this. I put the top part of their hair in a pony tail and then the bottom part in one as well. Then I put another rubber band in the middle to hold the two pony tails together tightly at the back of their head. Otherwise their long hair would be blowing in their face all day. Youngest put her hair in a bun today. I saw that and said “Opted for the bun, huh?” “Yes, I don’t want to deal with it today.” Oh baby, I totally understand!
