They call the wind, uh….windy……

…although if you listen to the weather channel, they would talk about the knot speed of wind, and when they do that , I always talk back to them and just say W-I-N-D-Y….Being out of the city, home of row houses and tall office buildings, when you are down here at the bay, the wind finds anyway it can to come and get you.

The girls and I are on abbreviated walks because the wind is just so biting.I am sure we’ll make up for it when the weather gets nicer.In the mean time, the three of us spend some time in the yard.

It’s incredible when you are out in the cold, because the sun lures you into thinking that it’s warm out, but it’s not. It’s ok, although. We are glad that everyone isn’t down yet. It’s still our little corner of the world, and Zush still enjoys getting out, Kasia still wants to explore everything, and life is good.

Time to Defrost, yet?

This is the one time I will honestly come out and say I miss living in the city.

Yes, you heard me right.

In the city, at least you had a house next to you on one side or maybe, if you were in a row house, two.That way you weren’t quite as cold. Down here, you are a single home and we are raised up from the ground, so when you have any wind, well, it sure finds you.

It’s due to be cold tomorrow too, which is no shocker since it IS January, after all. My girls were good with running in the back while I stayed in away from the ice. Fortunately, hot shower and flannel sheet time is just around the corner.

Sleep warm, gentle reader.

Take A Breath

I want to know if anyone ever heard the wind take a breath?

Down here in “Amity”, the wind down here doesn’t seem to know how to. Seriously.

The wind keeps blowing, and the weather report said the wind here is running 25 to 35 mph, with gusts to 50 mph.I am a big girl, and taking the girls out today, I think it was safe to say that the three of us could have, at one time or another today, qualified as Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons.You go down to the bay and wonder where it went, because it seriously lost its’ image, and now was like the Atlantic.

Not too long ago, I would have been walking the streets in center city, and had the wind blow me away there.It would be just like blanketed in steel and concrete.I’d sooner take it in down here, and look up and see the sunshine.

Crazy Weather

So the rain has finally left.


I took this picture tonight of Delaware Bay, and if you look at the water, you’ll see it’s far from calm.

A lot of folks think the ocean is the bees’ knees. I’m happy with the bay, as some days we are like a pond, so nice and calm. Today the winds were 18 mph, and if you closed your eyes, you’d swear you were on the Atlantic.

I have to savor it, as we don’t get many of these days in hot weather.
