There's a Hooley Blowing

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

  1. Thanks for your comments on my blog.
    By the time I read your Wed. posting, you were snuggled in your bed and hopefully getting some sleep.
    The wind and snow we had yesterday has been long forgotten because today was beautiful, bright sunshine, calm winds and no additional snow.
    Hope your headache is gone and you are bright eyed and bushy tailed for Thursday.

  7. Hi Kadeeae

    Hope you are keeping well. It was really bad here last night gone midnight and it was still raging. Carried on until the early hours and then dropped and then blooming started again just before I went to work. You are right about being warm and dry and well fed. We are the lucky ones.

    Take care dear friend

  8. Hi Laurie

    Welcome to my blog glad you are enjoying reading my rumblings. Lucky you living in Canada. We were supposed to emigrate to Canada when I was 15 - it didn't happen as someone made a mistake about me. They then told us we could go but we had settled back down. We do have or did have extended family living in Canada. My grandparents took in two refugee sisters Rita and her sister and Rita married a Canadian Ernie and settled and had a family. We sort of lost touch after my grandmother passed over a few years ago. Canada would be on my world tour if I ever won the lottery. Look foward to reading your posts and happy reading

  10. Hi Jackie

    I am glad I did my meditation. It gave a lot of relief and I ended up having a decent nights sleep as well. Meditation always calms me down, trouble is I never want to come back.

    Take care

  11. Hi Rowan

    Its still a little rough here tonight although not as bad as last night. Its colder here tonight as well. The meditation worked and calmed me down and I got a decent nights sleep which was the main thing. Hope you and yours are keeping well.

    Take care my friend and I hope you have a Happy New Year

  13. Hope the weather has died down like it has here... We'd not slept properly for a few nights, as our windows & doors were banging & rattling, but it must have calmed in the night & we both slept much better! So lovely to wake up this morning to absolute peace & no rain, so I dashed down to the beach to get some much needed fresh air!

    Have a good weekend Pattypan!

    Kay :)
