Today has been breezy. Not a “this wind is making my hair look great” breezy. More of a “these gusts are whipping my hair into my eyeballs” breezy. I’ve tried to go to the post office a few times to send out postcards but the wild winds keep blowing me back inside.
Because tree limbs keep blowing off of the trees and flying around the power has been sketchy. This has made postcards via the internet impossible. My poor computer is unplugged and looking very glum over not being used. Sorry computer! Blinking power means you’ll have to go energy hungry for a while.
How, due to the weather, am I sending this postcard to all of you? By using one of those mobile clever telephone things. Mr. C. Cow bought it for me because he was tired of me complaining about using his phone. It’s hard to use a cows mobile phone as they have a special “hoof option” that only applies to those with hoofs. Marslean, being a winged unicorn, can borrow it but my tiny otter paws are a no go.
Speaking of Marslean, she’s been sitting at our kitchen table playing one of those word making games since the computer is off limits. It’s one of those educational diversions where you are given random letters to make words out of. When I asked how it was going she wanted to know why the word “Swoodl” couldn’t be a real word.
This started a great conversation as to what the definition of “Swoodl” would be:
Mr. C. Cow – “The act of swinging a noodle around.”
Marslean- “Acting crazy and wiggly at the same time.”
Me – “When you swoon when cuddling.”
Good thing we’re not in charge of new word dictionary definitions!
Hopefully the wind will die down so I can go to the post office, the computer can eat a power snack, and things will get back to normal.

Sorry for the, not so neat, editing. Using a smart phone to write is a pain!
