♫ Everyone Knows It's Windy! ♫

     We woke up this morning to 24 degrees (Fahrenheit), with a wind chill factor of 4!!!...meaning it's 24 degrees outside, but it feels like 4!...Brrrrrr!...And to add insult to C-O-L-D injury, it's also windy! Well, 'breezy'...or so they call it! :-)) But whatever you call it, TRUST ME you don't want 4 degrees wind chill factor 'breezing' or 'blowing' past you here in New England at this time of year!!! ^_^ Everyone in this area knows 'that' winter wind!...or "The Hawk" as they call it!

       Not even dogs, who usually love sticking their head out of moving car windows,  like sticking their head out in that wind!! LOL...or should I say 'breeze'?!...

      So what does the 'Wug' household do on windy days with a wind chill factor too low to go out?!....Hubby makes soup, we eat leftover frosted carrot cake with pineapples (hubby made that yesterday! ^_^), we rejoice that hubby's unemployment compensation didn't go 'over the fiscal cliff' LOL, and I crochet like a mad woman!!...My boutonniere sales, even after the normal shopping season for this time of year, are still on-going...YAY!!! :-) {Last year at this time you could hear crickets rubbing their hind legs together in my bone quiet shop!! LOL}
     Yep! I'll be crocheting!!! What else do you do when everyone knows it's windy...besides laugh at people trying to be cool in the 'breeze'...while they're walking down the street holding onto their dog, their skirt, their umbrella?!! ^_^

Have a good day, Everybody!! :-)

Sense Of Humor

How do you gauge a sense of humor?
Is it just about a laugh?
Do you only know you're funny
when they're doubled up, in half?

Can a chuckle or a giggle
be a clue that you have wit?
Or can a smile and a head shake
be the quiet proof of it?

It's the people that are laughing,
in their house, their yard, their car.
That can spot a sense of humor;
recognize it from afar.

I don't know myself.
I just know what makes me smile.
Anyone who likes themselves
and can be talking for a while.

And if they make me wanna sit
and wonder what will they say next,
then they have a sense of humor
cuz I wouldn't be here unless...      


  1. I got chilled just reading this! Oh, I remember those temperatures and wind chill factors from when we lived in Michigan. Sometimes it was even too cold to take the dog out! I'm so happy that your sales are still going strong! That's how it should be - all year long... Stay warm!! Hugs, Silke

    1. Ha! Ha! Silke, sorry I caused you a chill! ^_^ I have to say though, Michigan's temps get much colder than ours even I think!! Although, both places would not warrant taking the dog out in single digit temps!! LOL...By the way, thanks for the nice words about the shop sales too! :-) Have a good evening, Silke!

  2. Gosh sounds like its awfully cold where you are. Please send some of that cold weather here. We've got temps around 100F for today and tomorrow. Other parts of my state will stay hotter for longer :-/ I really don't like summer.
    You try and stay warm & I'll try and stay cool.

    1. Oh's cold!!! As a matter of fact it's 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) right now, with a wind chill factor of 1!!!! Our 'high' today is only gonna be 26!! Brrrrrr!...I sure wish I could send some of it your way!! ^_^ You NEED some cold weather to even things out in your summer!...Oh well, we'll both have to make do today! :-))

  3. Ha ha!! My hubby used to sing that to me when we were young. "Everyone knows it's Cindy!"

  4. Ha! Ha! Ha!...Now I'm singing it that way too!! ^_^
