I'm writing to you today from the balcony. It is a beautiful, sunny day. Most importantly, it is spring. I'm wearing shorts in honor of the occasion. I am tired of fabric touching my shins.
At this time, I'd like to take a moment to recognize all of those in the Southern Hemisphere who are entering fall. Our thoughts are with you.
All right, back to our own enjoyment. Nothing screams "spring" like a windsock, so that's your assignment for today: make a windsock.
First, you're going to need to gather your materials.
Just kidding, sort of. I actually followed through and made a toilet paper windsock as a joke; but then I realized a toilet tube actually works really well for a miniature version. So... joke's on me?
Well, anyway, take a toilet paper tube, or a piece of paper that you've rolled into a tube, and decorate it. Tape or staple ribbons, or something ribbon-like, to the inside of the tube. Make sure there's plenty of ribbon hanging out of the bottom. Tape or tie a string to the top of the tube, and hang it somewhere windy. Maybe not too windy. A mild breeze.
Send me a pic, or just tell me you did it. We believe in the honor system. That being said, it's way fun when you send pictures. We laugh hard at you. With you. We laugh hard with you.
