Rainy Saturday Morning
A thousand thanks to everyone who had a suggestion to cope with insomnia. Thursday night, I did some deep breathing, took a hot shower with lavender body wash, listened to relaxing music, drank chammomile tea, and took a benadryl :) . Out like a light and slept all the way through 'til morning. Did the same on Friday night, except no benadryl, and only woke up once. Hopefully the good sleeping will continue. I can't believe how much better I feel.
I awoke to wet ground and cloudy skies, and the rain continued through the morning. We are desperate for rain here, and it almost looked like the trees were singing, they were so happy to have the dust washed from their leaves. It was chilly, so we made a nice fire in our big stone fireplace and enjoyed our morning coffee. Then Jerry cooked a nice big breakfast with lovely omelets and we watched a movie, "The Thing About My Folks". Two tissues, at least. It was one of those movies that the critics hated but I liked. Certainly worth the price of a DVD rental.
The rest of my day is wonderfully open ended and I feel like going back to my workroom. See you later.
