Though it’s April and the weather should be well on it’s way toward a balmy spring, the wind is high today. High enough to fly a kite really, really high. The wind chimes haven’t stopped since the AM and it’s actually not very pleasant to sit outside. Thank goodness for the grass, or there would be dirt blowing all over the place.
I love blustery days as long as I can watch them from inside with a hot cup of tea with milk. They remind me of the story of Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, in which Piglet and Pooh fly high above the Hundred Acre Wood, wishing everyone a Happy Winds-day. When I looked up the film on Wikipedia, I realize that it’s older than I am. What a reality check.
The wind chimes, on the other hand, gave me an excellent idea for my WIP that takes place in a desert world. Can you imagine the hot desert winds whipping the sand every which way? I would think that would require constant sweeping/vacuuming, because the sand would be everywhere.
