This morning was our monthly Catholic Homeschoolers’ meeting. It was rather nasty and gloomy this morning – we had freezing rain when I got up, but by the time we had to leave the house it had warmed up a bit and was just plain old rain, but accompanied by a rather gusty wind.
I got out of the car, sent the checs inside except for older boychec whom I needed to hold the umbrella while I got our t-shirts (made by me, photos coming) out of the way-back and into my arms for delivery. When we turned around to go into the church where we have our meetings, a strong gust of wind chose that moment to do this:
I should add that the umbrella in question is one of those with a double canopy, that is supposedly guaranteed not to turn inside out. HA! I’m sure that this is a one-in-a-million thing, but how fortunate that (a) I had the foresight to take a picture of it, (b) I just happen to have a blog on which to share it with my 4 or 5 loyal readers, and (c) the picture turned out so that you can tell it’s a windblown umbrella!
I did manage to get the silly thing turned right side out and folded up properly, and decided not to risk having it happen again today. So we just got rained on after the meeting.
So there you have just about the most exciting thing that happened to me today. BTW I have surfed most of the blogs in my blogroll and almost without exception they have had much more fascinating things to say so you should go read some of them now.
