Crazy Assed Weather

“Dream Angel”  by Primal Painter

I love this angel, the colors, the movement, the feeling, everything about it makes me gaze at it and feel better about things.  I’ve really needed to feel better the last few days, so yay for Dream Angel!


We’ve had so much rain in the past five days (or maybe longer, it feels like forever) that many of the roads around here have been washed out and flooded.  Several people have been washed away in their cars, the rivers are at dangerous flood levels, people have been evacuated….it’s been something else. Twelve inches so far and more coming this afternoon.


We’ve had hail three days in a row.  The first day, the hail was the size of tennis balls and didn’t just fall out of the sky, it  SHOT down on us with unbelievable force at an angle.  It felt like we were under attack!  The ice balls would hit the rocks, the trash cans and the CAR and the WINDOWS and just explode like mini bombs.


I was  screaming and shrieking about windows getting smashed out, so my boyfriend Jamie ran out to the car to cover up the windshield (he was too late) and got pelted with hail so big that it drew blood and made big welts on his arms.  I’ve never seen anything like it and I’m OLD!


My yard is littered with copious amounts of leaves and branches, my flowers are shredded…..Man! Crazy sh*t!  For some reason, and I don’t know if it’s the weather or what, but I’ve been super emotional.  I have to wonder if it’s because of the work I’ve started doing on my heart chakra painting.  My heart chakra is so deeply wounded that opening it up is releasing floodgates of emotions, kind of like the flood gates that have opened up in the sky.  I anticipated this happening but it’s still intense!


It also doesn’t help that I’ve been having horrible migraines, too.  I had some serious brain and head injuries that make me susceptible to post traumatic migraines.  I hate drugs, and the pills I take to get through them are brutal on my system.  No headache today (thank you God!) but I look and feel like complete and utter hell.


Well, on that depressing note, maybe some sunny happy pictures are in order! Here’s a few pictures of some of my flowers before the shredding..

My eyes are starting to get blurry on me (another side effect of the migraines, no it’s not age darnit!), especially the eye I look through the camera with, so it’s getting trickier and trickier to get things in focus.  I already have to wear reading glasses to read, but they don’t work with the camera viewfinder.  Not quite sure what I’m going to about that little glitch.


Well I need to get some things done before the next storm and the next migraine, so have a good one! (I made one of the tags for this post “whining”, gah!  Sorry…..)


Later,

Another Dog Story

The Migraine Zone  
I love all my puppies, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes it gets a little ridiculous around here.  All of our dogs seem to think they need to be within four feet of me at all times, all  five dogs.  I’m like the pied piper, wherever I go it’s a mini parade.  If I shut the door to the bathroom, they  lay down outside the door and wait patiently for me to come back out, then follow me single file and take their places within the four foot range with Bobo in my lap.
Yesterday I had a slammin’ migraine, so I took one of my treximets which knock me out  hard.  I fell asleep on the couch and woke up about 2 a.m. and decided I needed to go to bed.  In a hardcore haze of groggy, where am I? mentality, I stood up, stepped on Chance’s tail who was sleeping next to the couch.  He let out a yelp which startled Bobo, who sleeps under the blanket with me and triggered  a full-on Jack Russell Terrier tirade of high pitched screaming and yelling. Ellie, my daughter’s dog, starts her shrill little girl shrieking.  I stepped somewhere else to get off of Chance’s tail, and stepped on Penny’s tail, who yelped and started barking.  Then I  stumbled over Patches, (Miss Skunkalicious), and promptly did a face plant on the floor amidst a chaotic chorus of exited dog yelling.  Good grief, what a zoo!
I laid there for a minute, groaning and imagining myself with one of those Batman cartoon bubbles over my head that says POW!  and then one that says ARGGGGGHHHHH!.  The noise and excitement dies down but while I’m on the floor in total darkness trying to get my act together, my face is getting  licked by several tongues at once (cartoon bubble that says EWWWWWWW). 

I stumble towards the bedroom where for some unknown reason, the door is half shut, so I promptly crash into the door with my face!  Good Gawd, that migraine/treximet combo is a bitch…

The good news?  Nothing is broken, my puppies adore me and my migraine is gone. (Cartoon bubble that says AWWWWW).
By the way, that top picture is how I feel when I get a migraine.  I created that image yesterday when I was in the migraine/drugged zone.  Pretty colors but a little chaotic and jaggedy.

Have an awesome day!
