Stormy weather

The wind and rain kicked up during the night. Sometime around 03h30, I heard the wind-driven rain against the loft windows. It woke me up, actually. Both animals had taken refuge on the bed between us. It lasted a while and then calmed down. This morning there is much less rain, but the wind is still blowing. It's supposed to be like this through the weekend. Joy.

A calm morning a few days ago before the current storm blew in.

I have to decide whether to go out this morning or Saturday morning to order the holiday bird. The poultry people work the Friday market over in Montrichard and the Saturday market in Saint-Aignan. Depending on the weather, I'd prefer to stay closer to home. Montrichard is a twenty minute drive, St.-Aignan is a five minute drive.


  1. The colors are so beautiful. We’ve had gusting winds for a few days. At 2:30 this morning, Moose decided he had had enough and his misery needed company. We had to deal with his meowing for the next hour. He was sleeping in the sun when I left the house. I think I’ll wake HIM up when I get home.

  2. I hope things calm down for you there, weather wise. Yikes!

  3. I keep looking at your picture of macarons and drooling on the keyboard.

  4. mitch, turnabout is fair play.

    judy, it's not that bad, but I don't really like wind.

    emm, one more day and they'll be gone!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
