Once Upon A Stormy Night

Storms last night ensured little to no sleep for me. Stella was panting and shaking when the thunder rolled through. And apparently I am now sensitive enough to storms that I get a migraine from them. As the night wore on last night I was miserable because my head hurt worse and worse. I feel a lot better this morning but the lack of sleep has me in about the same mental state.

This morning the wind is super strong. I think I will drive the car to my meetings. I thought about taking the motorcycle but I don’t want to fight these winds on the first ride of the season. Maybe tonight if the winds die down. I have a meeting at 9am and then another at 6:30pm today. It seemed like a good idea to keep all my meetings despite someone offering to take over the 9am one for me. I don’t know. Lately I have been down to three a month between either me not being able to make it or one being cancelled. Having four has kept me having a back up one for bills. But if it is becoming a burden… I don’t know. I feel like if I give one up then I am less of a writer. I know I’m not but I’m saying that I can’t keep up. And I don’t want that.

I am watching a small sparrow on a branch hold on like it is some kind of carnival ride with this wind. Up, down and all around! I tried to sit out and work on my writing yesterday because it was beautiful out. But it didn’t happen for very long. I kept letting myself get distracted. There is sun and blue sky this morning but that wind will have everything all over and it is a cold wind. Oh but I see a thick wall of clouds coming in from the north. So the weather might become a bit wet later.

My goal today is to come home and get the article written for the meeting and save writing tonight’s meeting to be written up tomorrow morning. I don’t have to be to work until 2pm so that will give me plenty of time. I can try to get some work done on my novel before I have to go to my meeting tonight. If it’s not going to be too long (atleast according to the agenda they send out) I might take Stella and let her hang out in the car for a bit. It would be a new ride for her and get her out of the house.

I need to wrap this up. I just looked at the clock. Thanks for reading and stay safe!

  1. Some wonderfully vibrant and colourful photos in there Jen – nicely caught. I love the starkness of the red of the bird, the beauty of the flower and l absolutely adore the blending of the trees and their leaves 🙂
