Blustery night

Outside
The wind whips up
Rain falls
Bouncing off the ground
And windows
Inside
Me and Nitro
Are cosy and warm
In our cocoon
With the heat on
I hear the rain
Hammer my window paynes
Oh how glad I am
Not to be
Outside on this wet night

A storm is forecast for today

Well, we’re due to have another storm today, the fourth one this month!
Its due to arrive at around 1 Pm today!
We’ll have high winds and lots of rain!
I dont know how to spell the name of it, but it means george in spanish.
It was just snowing a little a few minutes ago. But it didnt stick on the ground.
I think mom and me are going out this morning. I need to get some new clothes to wear, and I also need to get my money for the week out of the ATM.
I hope we will get home before the worst of the weather hits. We should, though.
My plan then for the rest of the day is to stay indoors, read, go online, etc.
And stay out of the storm!

Being outside at 1 AM

As I stand at the back door
to let Nitro out
the wind howls
freezing my ass off
hurry up, Nitro
he’s sniffing around outside
not in any hurry to come in
its after 1 AM now
the rain splashes me
as I stick my head out and call
Nitro, Nitro
Come on boy
Time to come in
He runs up to me
soaking wet
Shakes himself all over me
As I turn to close the back door
We rush inside
Out of the biting wind
We sit
Me wrapped in my blanket
Nitro at my feet
I sip on a mug of hot chocolate
And begin to read
As nitro begins to sleep
And outside my window
The wind blows and rain falls

Friday morning post

I am thankful that its friday! I love the weekends! This is going to be a good one for me, as I am off to dublin today. I have my PA Frances coming first though at 9 this morning, its just going on for 5 AM here now. She’ll do some housework for me, and I have to go to the beauticians to get my nails soaked off and get some waxing done. I’m not reapplying the nails for a few weeks, I need to give my nails a break for a few weeks.

Once she leaves at 11:30, I’ll get ready and will go to the train station at 12:30 and get the 1:25 PM train to Dublin, the train takes around 3 hours to get there. It runs straight through, so there is no changing trains or anything thank god!

I am just hoping that Nitro will be ok on the train, its been a while since he’s been on one. And he’s older now, so I am hoping it wont stress him out too much.

The weather here is meant to be super bad this weekend, we’re getting another storm, this time its storm dennis. So I doubt me and Pat are going to do anything much, other than stay indoors, the winds and rain will be too much.

But I plan on having a nice weekend anyway. Planning on catching up with pat, its been far too long since we’ve seen one another.

Just not sleeping

Its gone 1 AM now. I am still wide awake. I cant seem to settle down tonight. I feel too wound up to sleep.

I tried watching tv. But I wasnt able to find anything good. I tried looking at amazon prime, and on netflicks, but all I kept doing was scrolling, and not settling on a show to watch.

So then I called my friend Pat, the friend I’m going to see this coming weekend. We chatted for an hour or so and that did distract me from my thoughts and stopped my mind from racing.

Now I’m debating, will I try to sleep, or will I make some tea and read my book for a while.

Its pouring rain outside, the noise of it is soothing to me.
