Windy Windy Day

Yesterday was a great day. It was 21 degrees (69 F) outside!!! For this time of year...well let's just say I was in HEAVEN!!!

Unfortunately it was too windy to take Alyson out to play. It was incredible. One of those windy days that you just have to go out into your yard, pull your hair out of your ponytail and let the air whip through it.... Have you tried this? I could see the tree tops lashing around before the air made it's way down to me. It's an amazing feeling. So exhilarating!! I love thunderstorms, I love dancing in the rain and I love crazy windy days!!

And the best part--laundry dries in NO TIME! Unless you have to go searching for your clothes all around your neighborhood, but hey what a great ice breaker for the neighbors that you haven't met yet. Number 1 reason I DO NOT hang out knickers!!!

I did say that I couldn't take Alyson out to "play", I didn't say that I couldn't get a few pictures of her reaction to the wind. Oh, I love that red hair!!!

That is one great photo! Alyson is so precious!

As strange as this might sound, I love windy nights, even more. Being inside, all cozy, while the wind whistles through the trees outside always makes me think of that song "Wildfire" by Michael Martin Murphey.

Okay...I'm strange, what can I say.

Windy days when Mother Nature does a blow-dry on your hair are great and, yes, putting comforters and other laundry outside to dry is wonderful; love the fresh smell!

Today it's raining here in NY; no wind, no fun!

I feel the opposite about the wind. It gnaws at my patience and invades my personal space. Not a fan. Love soft summer breezes though.

I love it when it's windy on a night and you can hear it swirling around outside!! During the day though I AWLAYS make the rookie mistake of applying lipgloss only for my hair to stick in it!haha!!
