can't sleep, so just a note

It's 20 past 5 in the morning, and I have been up all night. Did some novel writing, but not enough to warrant being up till this hour. But sometimes sleep just doesn't find its way into your bones, and your head is awake, too.

I had an email in my spam box last night that gave me pause with the subject line of "long lost". It didn't seem spam-like. I opened it up, and it turns out it is my (long lost) cousin who I haven't seen in some twenty or thirty years. Last I remember she lived in Arizona. Oddly enough, Iive up the block from the house she lived in as a kid.She was doing a search for our surname, and found me on one of the art sites I belong to. It was so good to hear from her, and I look forward to reconnecting through this wonderful web.

It's still dark out, but I don't think there's much chance of sleep just yet. Not feeling it.

Today is Labor Day... the unofficial "end of summer". Children are returning to school this week, and the streets will be quiet.

I have no particular plans.


  1. How nice, to get to reconnect with someone long lost! The internet is an amazing place, for sure.

    I got a few hours of sleep, but not nearly as many as my body thinks I should have. No worries. Going to enjoy my holiday with yarn and needles and a whole lot of lazy. :)

    For the record: I am fully embracing this 'official end' to summer. Bring on the cooler weather and the beauty of fall!

  2. I'm often up at that hour also - seems like no one else in the world is up at that time except me.

  3. in Sweden school started 3 weeks ago.

  4. I'm an early riser - 4am most days but it's rare for me to be still up at that hour without having seen my bed from the day before - I don't have that staying power even with a caffeine fix*!*

  5. It is not a bad hour to be up at considering if you had your sleep already. It is a nice quiet part of the day.


Thank you for reading my blog, and spending some time with me... I am truly honored.
