One of those nights...

 It's threatening to become one of those long sleepless nights that I'm famous for which end up with me not going to bed until some time in the morning. I haven't been to bed yet and have been keeping myself busy with the appearances of my blogs and the names of them. 

I don't know if that was necessary, but it's something I get caught up in very once in a while. A madness comes over me and I go looking for blogger layouts and always find a new website where I can get them for free. And of course, I always think there are better layouts there than the ones I have at the moment. 

I think I am one hell of a stubborn woman with a one track mind who gets fixated on certain activities and stops being aware of everything around her. That's why it's good for me to sit here and write this post and take some distance from it all. Maybe I can get my head out of the clouds and my feet back on the ground and go to bed at a halfway decent time. Maybe I can talk some sense into myself. 

Regardless of the late hour, I'm having some coffee to straighten out my head. It was in a complete muddle. I'm tired enough so I won't worry about falling asleep. That is, if I have enough sense to go to bed and don't continue to sit here doing useless things. I must tell myself that I look forward to going to bed and that it's a nice place to go to. There's so much temptation to stay up and sit here in a half stupor. 

I do like altered states of mind.Especially the kind that are benign and treat me friendly. The kind that leave me without feeling guilty, as this one is right now. Of course, I don't know the aftermath of it yet, but I assume a good outcome.  All will be well in the morning. 

I don't know what happened to the day. It was over in no time at all and I wasn't bored for one minute. Of course, sleeping for half of it took care of a great deal of it. I would be bored in the morning I I didn't sleep. To me that's not the best time of the day to be up. I used to clean house then in my housewifely days, but those are far behind me. I scrub the toilet at any time of the day now. I have no method. 

I have to go to bed now because I'm starting to doze off. My eyes want to fall shut. I'm sure one more cup of coffee would save me, but i better not drink it. I also have to pay attention to the dog because he's bothering the cat for lack of attention from me. I'll have to give him a good belly rub. 

I hope you're all having a good night.

Hello Nora,

I do hope you have a beautiful sleep tonight and feel relaxed by morning.

I am just drinking my late cuppa before I turn the lamps out and off to dreamland, it's past 1am here in Norfolk, England.

Hello Camilla, I wish the same to you and a very pretty day tomorrow. I'm assuming you're having a cup of tea, which is a more sensible thing to have than coffee, except that it doesn't do a thing for me. I'm not a great tea drinker like the English are. Sleep tight. XOX

It's ironic you mentioned looking for different layouts for your blog posts. I was thinking the other day how you had mentioned that in an older post as I was admiring one at the time. I always like your different layouts....I don't have the patience for it.

I've babbled long enough...hope you have a good night's sleep.

Hi Nora,

Thank you, always drink tea mostly but love coffee too.

I shall save the link to your new blog site Nora, thank you.

Hope you are sleeping better tonight.

Books I find help me to relax before sleeping.
