Up with the sun
Ahhh.......feels good to wake up in the A.M. I slept for 8 hours yesterday and got up just in time to go to the meeting, then we went to bed about midnight last night and I slept really good until the dogs woke us both up out of really deep sleep. I'm guessing it was about 3 A.M. They were barking at some dalmation that walked up. I have no fear that anyone could break in on us. 4 dogs make a really good alarm system. So anyway, after that I tossed and turned and couldn't go back to sleep. MY brain was done with sleep. Time to think and remember things like, 'Hmmm I told one of my patients last night that I would bring them back some coffee. Plain black..... Did I take it back? Oh yeah, that wasn't last night that was tuesday night, ya I took it back to him. ' What do I need to buy at walmart today? I'd like to go to the library...... Just random thoughts like that for 2 hours or so. I just waited for it to start looking less black outside through the little crack between the edge of my curtain and my wall. Finally I got up at 5:20 and made my coffee and warmed up a peice of pound cake in the microwave. I sat on the porch and watched the sky turn bright while I sipped my coffee and ate my cake. I felt very awkward with my audience of pets staring at me. I guess the smell of coffee slowly reeled them in from wherever their hiding spots were. I think I know why my ivy doesn't grow very well in the side bed. The cats think it is a trampoline. Why is it so much fun to play, dig and sleep in flower beds????? And my containter of thyme makes a great hide and seek prop. You can swat through it at each other and jump over it and sometimes IN it. I EAT that! no wonder I get hairballs........haha. j/k.
