Sleepy days and sleepless nights.

My sweet boy.

We're all a bit sleepy around here right now, although the cats get plenty of sleep so I don't know what their excuse is. Now that the nights have gotten colder, they are both mostly sleeping through the night which is great. They sleep until around 5:00am now instead of 3:00 or 4:00. Sadly this hasn't helped my inability to sleep through the night. I haven't stay asleep for longer than 3 hours at a time for a few weeks and it's starting to get to me. Just once I would like to open my eyes and find that it is morning instead of the middle of the night.

And I can't blame the cats although they do tend to hog the bed and the comforter. The past few nights when I've awakened in the night, I've found that I am pinned down by sleeping cats. One on my legs and one at my side. I like the warmth they bring and the sweetness that is a cat sleeping next to me, but sometimes they don't leave much room to move.

I really need to become a heavy sleeper.


My dreams have been so vivid and long and weird lately too. It's like I am dreaming so much that I am not actually getting any rest.

Nonetheless, I have been getting loads of work done. Knit, knit, knit. Crochet, crochet, crochet. And then felt. Yesterday I had quite a good felting day of three bags, two sets of coasters, two sets of nested bowls and a handful of zinnias. And today I have already finished knitting up one bag and I am almost done with a second. This week I added a few new things to the Mad Orange Shop. And there will be more. Soon.

That's what the weekend holds for me as well. More knitting and crocheting. It's a good thing that I run five mornings a week or else I'd never get out of the house! (It's kind of bad, this whole not leaving the house thing. I need to get out more.) Sunday will bring a bit of daytime football capped off by the nighttime Steelers game. We'll be cooking up BBQ pulled pork and baked beans. I can't wait.

Hope everyone one has a happy weekend!
