>It’s Autumn


My favorite season.  Cool crisp days, chilly nights, an extra blanket, and no hot and sticky.  I don’t love hot and sticky.  The trees across the street always turn late, because the big parking lot light shines on them all night.  It used to shine on me all night, too, but they moved it. 

I am having such trouble with the darn sleep thing.  Took a Benadryl last night and slept very well.  Even woke up just before 9am.  Did the morning routines, tidied up the bathroom, washed and filled some soap containers, and realized I needed to go back to bed around 9:30.  Okay, a little extra snoozing.  Ha!  Woke up at 3:30pm.  I was very unhappy, because now I can’t sleep tonight.  This is starting to really get me down.  I don’t want to be a vampire, thank you very much.  I like sunshine and  daylight.  Really, I do.  To quote one of my favorite songs, “Just can’t seem to get it right today.  Guess I’m gonna give up.”  Drat.

The last Eureka was on tonight.  I do love that show.  I’m hoping “House” and “The Mentalist” will be on On Demand or on-line.  I did see “NCIS” another favorite.  Finally, some decent tv more than once or twice a week.  I  am almost never out at night, and I like to watch tv. 

I’m trying hard not to see any new stories about the economy, the election, or just about anything else Washington-related.  It ain’t easy, but I’m trying.  I can’t fix anything, and since no one bothered to ask my opinion anyway, I just want to avoid the whole mess.  I have done a lot of organizing of bookmarks and files and such.  Something I can do something about.  🙂
