The End of the Old and the Slight Beginning of the New —- Monday, January 2, 2016


“You are never to old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”–Unknown

Last night my exhausted body could NOT find rest, because of my determined mind wanting to stay up all night carousing around and around and around.

january-2-002The house was silent, save for the pops and snaps of the wood burning in the woodstove.  And my restless thoughts. I’m sure they were visible they were so loud in my brain!

Today I’m tired and can’t get my ‘self’ to move.


Oh well, hopefully I can sleep tonight and be a much more energetic blogger tomorrow.

  1. I wonder if it might be our age because I do the same thing at least once a week depending on what I’ve done during the day or news I’ve received that day. It’s maddening have to lay there and not disturb your spouse or the dog and you certainly can’t get up and do anything because of the noise you may make! The next night though, like you, I sleep like a baby! Sweet dreams tonight my friend!

    • I remember Mom and Dad saying they couldn’t STAY asleep so they would get up at 4:30 every day. Then they wanted to be in bed by 8. Well I’m up at 5 everyday now and go to sleep at 9:30….


  3. I was awake at 3:30 and up at 4:30. Sitting here with coffee in the dark. I wish it was unusual but sleep eludes me more and more. I would love to wake up one morning feeling ‘rested”. It will be a hard work day and I feel your pain. Hopefully you and maybe I will sleep deep tonight.
