I thought yesterday was bad - we had dark skies and torrential rain with a very hurly burley blustering day. The rain cleared and we had blue skies from about 2.00 p.m. and then the wind howled all night. It was quieter this morning although got a little rough again and we thought the worst of it was over, but it has started with a vengence again this evening.
Earlier in the evening I was out and about with friends and the crescendo of the wind howling has increased whilst we have all been together. Some friends have travelled some distance so I do hope that they have got home safely.
I have been meditating since I got home - I have a lot on my mind at the moment and to try and regain focus on what is important I meditate. Sometimes just listening to music - other times using guided Meditations. This evening I have listened to a guided mediation in an effort to calm myself and make sense of what I want to realise. I have had an incense stick burning as well as a candle and have meditated by the light of the candle. The cats have been with me both sprawled very interested in proceedings although not too keen on the vanilla incense. They are both nodding as I speak both warm and comfortably sprawled.
The wind has got worse whilst I meditated and its time I made my way up the stairs - I have my hottie bottle to prepare to keep me warm overnight, but it seems this night's lullaby is not to be something soothing like Brahms but a hooley in full swing - I hope I get some sleep as I am in need of it - I have had a splitting headache for the best part of the day and all I really need is some peace and quiet.
I do hope that wherever you are if there is a hooley blowing that you will keep safe - please take care
