(from a greeting card I made in 2003)
Except for the colors, this is pretty much what it looked like from my office window just before sunset today. It was a beautiful, sunshine-filled day here with the temperature rising to over 60 degrees. I have to confess that I didn't take proper advantage of this temporary break in the chilly weather. Instead of hauling out the leaf-blower and clearing the front yard, I took a nap.
A cup of coffee, consumed with my evening meal at Gardening Daughter's home, kept my eyelids wide open until the wee hours. Sometimes I can drink coffee at night and still sleep like a baby. Not last night. I finally fell into the arms of Morpheus about the time that other folk are rising. My slumber wasn't long enough to refresh me, and I had a bad "sinking spell" about 3 p.m. Thinking I would just rest awhile (hahaha) I made myself comfy in my recliner, and picked up the book I had begun to read last night. I was awakened by a telephone call just before five o'clock, so I probably snoozed for at least an hour and a half.
I hope this recounting of my fun-filled day has not left you too excited to sleep tonight.
I'll be going to bed soon.
Tomorrow is also a day.
