I don't remember...


Yesterday is pretty much a blur to me. I know I spent a lot of time sleeping, either in my bed or on the sofa. It seemed like I could,'t get enough sleep and kept needing more. This normally signals a change in mood, but I haven't noticed anything different yet, although it is early in the morning still and I don't know what the day has in store for me. Early in the morning I am always the same basically upbeat person with a good outlook for the rest of the day and I usually sit here quite happy with my cups of coffee and my cigarettes. It's what happens afterwards that counts. After I've slept some more or not, and how I wake up from that extra sleep.

Yesterday morning I went back to bed, but was woken up prematurely by the Exfactor who came by for a cup of coffee, Needless to say, I was not immediately very talkative. I was still half a sleep and after he left I finished sleeping on the sofa and didn't wake up until 2 pm. Hey, I can't always be the life of the party! Although I will seldom be accused of that.

Basically what I did yesterday was walk the dog, eat, blog a little, sleep some more, and go to bed and some of those things I did several times. It was a very low energy day. Man, if anybody is into cycles, I certainly am. I seem to have very wide apart biorhythms. They don't seem to follow very smooth lines either, the way you see them so neatly on graphs.

The agendas arrived in the mail yesterday. It was great to see how they turned out and I am pleased with them. I'm sending the one for my daughter off in the mail on Monday, weather permitting, because we're expecting a lot of snow this weekend. It snowed during the night and there's a cold wind blowing too, which I felt when I let the dog out back for a piddle. Everywhere they're running out of salt to sprinkle the roads with and they've already used up their quota for this season. In all of Europe, salt is hard to come by. They'll have to order extra for next winter, because it seems like these are the kind of winters we are going to have now. It's all part of the climate change. Hot summers and cold winters. I do so need to live in a kinder climate. I'm sure a lot of you are saying the same thing.

I'm already looking forward to going back to bed for a while. That will be after I take my medicines and eat breakfast. Of course, I got up awfully early this morning. That is because of that pain in my arm and my hand. It disappears after I've been up for about half an hour, though the numbness in my pinkie and my ring finger stays longer. I'm sure it's a pinched nerve and there is not much that can be done about that.

There are times when I think that sleep is the most blessed thing of all. It's so very nice to be lying in your bed under the duvet and feel your whole body relax and get toasty warm. I want to have an extra blanket on the bed and I will look into that shortly, as soon as I get over my agoraphobia. Actually, a nice crocheted one would be the best for the weight and the warmth. I'm supposed to have an extra blanket somewhere. I'll have to dig in the closet and see if I can find it, but it's not really what I want. I'll have to go to one of the department stores to see if they have something useful.

I don't really miss sleeping beside someone's warm body, although it can be very cozy, but in the end I like my own space in bed. I like my covers all to myself and my own legroom. I also like not having to listen to somebody snore. Although I have been accused of snoring myself, but I think that's when I was heavier and had sleep apnea. All in all sleeping alone is nice, though, as long as your bedroom is cozy enough, which mine wasn't when I slept in the other room. That's when I had some trouble sleeping on my own in that single bed and preferred to sleep on the sofa.

Well, I'm off to eat breakfast. Some nice hot porridge to warm my insides. Have a wonderful day, all of you. Don't let the weather get you down too much.

Ciao,
Nora.

You make me realize that I enjoy sleeping in my bed, everything to my liking. It's one of the things I find frequently in your posts: you point out life's simple pleasures for which we can all be grateful.

I wish we lived closer. I would crochet you a blanket to your specifications. I have been thinking lately that I would enjoy a crochet project, especially during this cold weather. I don't know any one here who needs another crochet blanket from me, though. :P

Oh, and what's this "agenda" you are pleased about?

I love my bed too....and I know what you mean about the snoring or the thrashing about when someone else is in the bed. Very disturbing. ( well I vaguely remember anyway)
Take care and I hope you don't get too much snow.
