Blustery Day

My favorite movie when I was little was Disney's Winnie the Pooh movie. There's something wonderful about Sterling Holloway's voice. I had the record and I used to play it all the time. I had several of these record story books and I loved them. You would listen to the record and read along and there were songs too. I had Winnie the Pooh, Snow White and Alice in Wonderland. I remember sitting for hours with my little record player and the book in my lap and singing along.

But I digress. Last night and continuing today, it is very blustery. Blustery is the best word ever. First, we lost the internets. Then we lost all electricity just before bedtime. Mr. Geeky took Geeky Girl to bed with him while Geeky Boy and I stayed up a little later to play video games. The electricity came back on just before we went to bed. I slept in Geeky Girl's bed and all night I could hear the wind howling at the windows. Branches were snapping and landing on roofs and it was generally . . . blustery.

There's nothing to do on a blustery day except stay inside and keep warm.
