Our group post this week is our interpretation of "winding up". My first thought was of something like a wind up toy, or winding up a music box. Then I had a picture in my head of a pitcher on the mound winding up his arm and body to throw that pitch. Or a child winding themselves up to really pitch a tantrum. Actually I've seen a few adults so this also. ;-)
But what it all boiled down to for me was winding up...as in the finishing of or ending of something. You know, well... I'm finally winding up the week, looking forward to relaxing this weekend. Or..., finally, I'm winding up that project and whoo boy, I'll be glad to be done with it!
Makes me think maybe it's a "regional thing" and I love discovering different regional interpretations of words and phrases. So does anyone else, wind up their week by Friday?
