Concentration has passed me by. I have so much muddling within this wee brain of mine. Have you ever had a sleepless night like this?
Tea. Chamomile Tea. Another blanket. Complete quiet. Does that mean I have to leave my bed? Bill is snoring. His bean soup is working. There is no peace in this room. There is no place in this room for me right now. Mercy, I cannot breathe. The recliner. I will try the recliner.
I wonder what the young adults are doing at this hour! Not to worry, I wouldn't do that. They have sense, do they not? Oh, for pete sake, they are in the garage working on the 4-wheeler, or are they? no?
Is it still raining? Has it turned to snow yet again? Did I just hear a cricket? It can't be. If they have any sense at all, they are still deep in hibernation. It's far to cold for them yet. I wonder how far the kids got on their travels. They hoped to be in New Orleans by now. It was nice they checked in this morning.
Oh my gosh, if I drink this tea at this hour, I'll just get to sleep and have to go to the lady's room...dear me.
I pray that my family starts to get healthier. I worry about all of us, lately. Is the sun going to shine in the morning? The maple syrup operation is going full-steam. We should have syrup by tomorrow afternoon. I forgot to get the lids for the canning jars. I sure am having my share of senior moments lately, and I don't even feel old yet. I look in the mirror, tho, and it scares me what I see.
I wonder how my sisters are all doing. I saw my twin this morning and he's doing so much better. Thank God. We just may have a chance to grow old together yet. What a mess upstairs. Tomorrow, maybe I can tackle one closet at a time, slow but sure. Just like the Tortoise and the Hare, I go slow and Bill goes fast. We always end up at the same place come nightfall. See~~~I'm a mess tonight. Cannot sleep. I think I will go watch a movie, or bake something. What will I conjure up for those hard working Maple Syrup-making boys tomorrow....I'll read for awhile. That always slows me down, calms me. When I start to reread a sentence, I know sleep will soon come. I will read.
....surely, by now, ALL of YOU are asleep....
Thanks for stopping and reading this nonsense~~~ love ya ~~~
