The two hat day.

Look upon every day as the whole of life,
not merely as a section;
and enjoy and improve the present without wishing,
through haste, to rush on to another.
                                                  Jean Paul Richter


“Blustery.” That word grabs my attention. While I scan the newspaper, a television is chattering in the background. I must see the satellite shot for the day. It is becoming an obsession, in a year full of shifting cold and warm fronts.

The weatherman announces “It’s going to be a blustery day out there.” He points to the map behind him and points out the pink and blue waves on the screen, meaning trouble ahead. To those of us who cannot stay inside our nice warm homes and ride it out, there will be no escaping that word, today. Pink would be freezing rain, and dark blue would be heavy snow. Light blue would be light snow but with the word blustery thrown into the mix, it will mean drifting and just plain miserable. I did associate the colour pink with more cheerful, and a meaningful cause, but this darn map has left a different spin on my pink.


Blustery, only means one thing to me these days. That would be freezing cold and more than likely miserable. Layers of clothing will be required to make it through a day like today. To look out the window, you would not believe the weatherman. The sun shines and the sky is clear. The snow that covers the ground shimmers in the light. It sure looks pretty.

The sun is very tricky. It will invite you out into its beautiful world, and then smack you in the head with that word “Blustery” before you know what hit you.

I have fallen for the sun and her beautiful soothing come hither ways, too many times before. Now, I constantly listen to the weatherman who warns me of her tricks, and then I prepare for them. I have wondered lately, though that maybe the weatherman plays tricks too. Could those two be in cahoots? Maybe this is the season of tricks, and to fool those of us who head outside.


Today I am going to trust the weatherman, and hope it is not one of his tricks again. I do not trust the sun these days she likes to get you out there and not prepared so she can laugh.

With the word blustery in my head I pull on layers, I also pull on two hats, and my hoodie. “You will not trick me today sun, Ha take that.” I open up the door and the blustery winds are very apparent. I pull my hood over my face. The weatherman was right. “Blustery” is my word of the day. It is definitely a two hat day. I know I will find something to do with the extra hat.


Oh yes, that would be Tessy, her Mom Bossy2 and of course, Red. We like to share.

  6. Hello Buttons!:) Blustery is one of those descriptive words that just pronouncing the word makes one shudder, and conjures up blasts of cold air. Lovely photos of mum wearing the blue hat, and her sweet calf. Stay warm!:)

  9. We've had several blustery days of late... a few days ago it was so blustery we had to put the fire out; the wind was blowing the smoke back into the house! *cough, cough*

    Tessy looks fetching in that bright blue hat!

  15. Blustery it was! I could have used two hats, too, although mine are not as fashionable as Bossy and Tessy's!

  19. The sun peeking through the fence is so pretty. Of course looks can be deceiving when it's cold outside and "blustery." - The cows looks so cute with their hats.

  20. Tessy looks lovely in blue! Blustery here yesterday - luckily, I didn't have any cows to feed! Today, back to the sun making the new snow glisten. We even had a Sun Dog this AM!

  21. Big smiles. Tessy looks lovely.
    Our weather boffins are strangers to the truth. They get the temperature right (more or less) but are abject failures on the precipitation front.

  22. We started the day with moderate weather and green grass. Then it snowed about 10". Of course it was melting almost as fast as it was falling, but I sure enjoyed it while it lasted. About half gone already. So, two hat day here too :-).

  23. B,

    Lovely hat!!! Yesterday it was windy about 45 mph, today temperatures are 72 and it's gorgeous out. In fact, I started the tractor today to cut the grass. I'll ship you some of our warmth.

  24. "A bit nippy" is also an understatement of great cold.

    Like your hat. Stay warm.

  25. Now this was a fun read!

  26. I hope you "weather it through the blustery" . . .
    And manage the hats too . . .
    Pretty blustery around here of late too!
    I am ready for green . . . lots of it!

  28. Wind can take the fun out of a sunny day for sure.

  29. A great read. Love the first and last shot.

  30. I love those hats!
    I love blustery too.
    The word and the weather. Here in Aus. blustery is that time between summer breezes and winter gales, and usually happens while the air is still warm enough to go out in it. I love walking in swirling winds with autumn leaves blowing from the trees.

  31. So much fun to read this post. I love the word blustery. Love your photos. Have a nice weekend ahead my friend, xo

  32. brr! I know the feeling that a blustery day brings!

    ReplyDelete
  33. The blustery days of March will give way to warmer, sunnier days in April, balanced just right with enough rain to get the crops in the field growing so that Bossy2, Tessy, Red, and all of the girls have good things to munch away. Hold on to those hats so they don't get blown away in the wind. Hugs, C.

  34. Season of tricks... What a brilliant way to put it!

  35. Have faith 'B' spring is close. I can feel it, smell it and trust the calendar.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Maybe you need to knit hats for the girls with a chin strap so they don't blow away in that wind!
    Think spring!!

  37. LOL!!!
    Stopping by from Good Fences and I'm glad I found you. This is my first visit.

  38. Tessy looks very smart in her new hat with her new calf by her side. Yes, the sun AND the weatherman seem to fool us too often.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Blustery- yes, I like that word. Perfect for these windy days...some cool, some warm, but most biting enough to send me back indoors for a jacket. Today is a good day to get outdoors before our week long rain arrives. 7 inches is what I hear...I surely hope not.

  40. They look quite dapper in their blue hats.

  41. The blue hats are wonderful for a blustery day. It seems we may get spring early or perhaps it is just mother nature fooling with us:)
