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

Fowc: Salient

A salient breeze
Blows this morning
It has been blowing all night
As we slept
Peacefully and soundly
Step outside
Almost get blown over
Fingers numb
As the wind wooshes and whirls
Around me
Think I prefer
The safety of indoors
Where the heat is on
Where its warm and cosy

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.

A bad storm

We had a very bad storm last night. I was so glad to be snuggled up in bed. It started at around 7 PM. It lasted right through until around 4 AM. There was a lot of rain, and very high winds. There is a lot of damage around the city now because of it. Fallen trees and stuff. It was hard to sleep with the wind. But eventually I did sleep. And this morning its calm again. However we’re meant to have another storm tonight. The one last night was called atyia. Nice name for a storm, I thought.
