Happy Winds Day

It's windy. My birdhouse was having a wonderful time swinging in the wind this morning. Had there been birdseed in it, the birds may have been swinging too.

The Punkin Patch was full again today. My grandchild collection was here. Well, part of it anyway... With Rocky in the mix we had a total of five "little punkins". Things were getting a little wild inside (the boys were wrestling) and the sun was shining, so in spite of the wild wind, I took them all outside. I must have looked foolish raking leaves in 40 mile an hour winds, but the object wasn't getting the yard clean. That would have been akin to cleaning the house while it was full of children.

The wild wind blew in some warmer temp- eratures and the ladybugs came out to play. Aubrey was the first to discover a new friend on a Little Tikes cozy coupe car, but everyone found it fun to let a ladybug crawl on their hands. When our little friend hopped into the air and flew away, we thought it was gone forever, but then it circled around and landed on Lukie's jacket.

The boys soon lost interest in ladybugs and went inside Hannah's Place to wrestle. While thumps, thunks, laughter, and an occasional yelp emanated from the little house, the girls took an interest in the little red and black beetles congregating on the east wall of said building. Protected from the wind and warmed by the sun, several ladybugs at a time were crawling up the wall before taking flight. Rocky plucked a few to keep as pets.
