A Blustery Day Today

coming home from the grocery 2-8-11
Oh the wind is lashing lustily
And the trees are thrashing thrustily
And the leaves are rustling gustily
So it's rather safe to say
That it seems that it may turn out to be
It feels that it will undoubtedly
It looks like a rather blustery day, today
It sounds that it may turn out to be
Feels that it will undoubtedly
Looks like a rather blusterly day today
from ~Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day
Richard Sherman and Robert Sherman

  1. Brrr-rrr-rr! Good day to stay inside! (Love the Sherman Brothers, by the way. Ever see "The Boys," the documentary about them? Highly recommended!)

  2. "The Boys" around here means the triplets! lol. No, I have not seen that but will certainly look it up, Silver. And thanks for not lecturing about taking pics while driving. :)

  9. Betsy ~ you hit a nerve with this, and I'm tearing up...happy tears.

    I was looking at some old journals of mine, and when my daughter Jill was in the first grade,and she turned 40 this year, This was my entry ..."Today was the best day, just Jill and me at the Mall. We had lunch and bought a Winnie the Pooh book "A Blustery Day". I called her "Saucy" she called me "Cha Cha La"...and we hugged and said this is the best day ever."

    Betsy, Jill always made up name for us and we would call each other those silly names. She stilll has that book.

    So ~ thanks for the memories.

  17. We seem to have quite a bit of that blustery weather here, too:-)

    I cracked up when I read about you getting up late and rushing around to get the triplets ready for school!! I only have one boy to get ready in the morning and I always say that every minute is accounted for and there is no time for errors! I can only imagine the rushing around you had to do to get everyone ready!

  24. "Hibernation is in full swing
    As the bears in caves do sleep;
    Biting winds outside
    But inside not a peep...

    You feel so old
    As you curse the cold
    Your bones are rather weary;

    But so I'm told
    Yet not quite sold
    Anon Spring pushes out the dreary."
