It's one of those nights. ........Ever have those? When my children were younger I usually dropped like a rock into sleep every night (unless someone was sick)......not so much as I age....(Moi???) ;--ooo
It's now 12:45 a.m. usually in bed by 10 or so.......
Finished the grey round on my Christmas crocheted afghan blocks; stacked them in another bag together;
Wound up the variegated (red, white and green with silver flecks) yarn for the next round yarn from the humongous skein of Red Heart--five balls from this one!!
Had two cups of tea so far, with 1/2 & 1/2--figuring that the milk product might make me sleepy--NOPE
Ate a Nonnie's Biscotti--(not on my diet, but had the munchies)...and STILL no yawns in sight
All the while watching the Red Sox lose (AGAIN Arrrgh!) to Oakland 4 - 2....but got to hear that cute Dennis Eckersley do the color...(plus he's informative--right? and funny...hmmmmm--life in the old gal yet !)
Wrote a journal entry in my Franklin--trying to find what's on my mind--lotsa family losses and issues, Mom's fading and shrinking each time I see her she seems smaller to me....and I always found her to be bigger than life.....
--like my friend MA says".... It builds up....you can't ignore it...it WILL eventually rise to the surface and keep you awake nights". Yup--right on MA.....
Well, I'm still sitting here...waiting to get sleepy....don't want to eat/cheat anything else......
I guess I'll turn on a video and hope to get drowsy...perhaps Poirot will make me drowsy..
Goodnight gals, from your sleepless Julierose, La Blageuse
