If not shine so at least rise. That’s what I did- at three thirty. Well, first I laid there feeling how some of my joints ached. I took a pill and closed my eyes. The ache subsided- my eyes were ready to see daylight! So at four thirty I got up, went out to get the newspaper, made coffee- and the dog looked at me like I was insane- and went back to sleep. (she is still sleeping!)
I finally got all the thank you cards from the confirmation done, so something really good came out of this. We’ve waited to take a photo since we forgot on the day of the party, but Carly has had a bad sty on her eye and wanted to get rid of it first. Yesterday we had to get the doctor to get her a specialist’s appointment in order to get him to cut it away. She’s pretty calm about it.. So we used a photo from inside the church. It came out really nice, but of course it doesn’t show her in her dress- but so be it. It is a nice portrait anyway. So far this morning it’s sunny but they have called for a couple of rain showers, so maybe we’ll get in the car and put the cards in the mailboxes then..
I also walked in the dewey grass this morning and cut some peones and roses to put in vases in the living room.
In the garden there are tons of peones so I thought I could cut some closest to the wall of the house and take with me indoors,
As far as the climbing roses go, I always cut them a little less than I
roses outside my window
should so they can peek into my windows. i like seeing them while I sit in the living room.. This year I left them a little too long…
Now I’m really sleepy! Maybe I should take a little nap? Nobody else is up yet anyway, and it’s only 7:40.
We’ve had a long day. We worried so much about the dog that both Bill and I got up early. That is, Bill got up before six to check on her, and then we both got up before eight.. She was crying from some kind of pain last night, we thought maybe she pulled a muscle or hurt in her joint in her “shoulder” for some reason.. Still we don’t know but she was a bit better today so what ever it was it must be passing. There’s always something with her, seems like.. She’s only six, she should be bouncy and tough. Instead she is delicate and fragile.
And grey- bearded despite not being that old. But beautiful. And kind.
And lazy. And quirky. And somewhat neurotic.

Bill went to bed early. His sweater was on the floor. Someone thought it a bit sad not to enjoy his company. At least one can borrow the sweater and the familiar scent.

I hate to admit it but it must be my getting older that makes me wake up at all the wrong times. I don’t have severe hot flashes or anything, but I wake up periodically at night wondering why, but then I get too hot to stay under my blanket and have to cool off. I usually get back to sleep but sometimes it’s impossible.. Like this morning. I woke up at 5:30 and even though I didn’t go to sleep until 1:00am I got up knowing full well it was useless staying in bed. So now I’ve been for a walk with Emma in the snowy, silent streets..
and I’ve had two coffees while the dog just curled up on the couch as soon as we got back in and she knew that I was going to sit down in the chair nearby. Her stomach is making weird noises and she didn’t eat her breakfast. Bill said she got into something on the street yesterday morning. She’ll never learn that one.
