It's been a while since I had trouble sleeping. Usually my head hits the pillow and I'm gone, but last night my mind simply refused to get still. Maybe it was the coffee I had too late in the day. Or maybe I allowed myself to dwell too long on my "to do" list. (I know better.) Sometimes everything seems so urgent. Ironically, urgency tends to paralyze me.
So, instead of tossing and turning, I padded down to the living room in my sock feet and tucked myself under my most favorite blanket. In a silent, sleepy house, I pondered my weekend and the week ahead.
It didn't rain Saturday as I had expected. (Apparently I was the only one around here that heard that particular weather report.) Saturday turned out to be a great day to rake and burn the ocean of leaves that covered our front yard. Our pup was a lot of "help", playing in the leaves as we piled them on tarps and dragged them to the fire.
too much coffee on the front patio, which is most likely the reason I could not sleep later. It was totally worth it, though, because we had a very sweet time (sorry about the pun) and our friends saved us from eating too much cake on our own.
rejoice in all that is good in my life. Okay, Monday. I'm ready for you now.
