    But I Must Be In Bed By 9pm

    Somehow my sleep pattern got latched up to a 9pm start. If I don't start sleeping by this time, my next moment only comes two hours later. Then, I make a break around 2:15 am. Perhaps I wake up shortly again at 4am, and then I keep sleeping until 6am.  I'm happy with these...

    What's a Sleep In?

    Hours Into The Day

    This morning as I sat here with my 3rd cup of coffee, I wondered how many others were sitting all alone, the rest of the household sound asleep in their beds. That inspired me to see if there was actually a group of people like me searching out for some early morning...

    Between 4:45 and 5:00,

      no alarm needed!  I love it early in the morning.....absolute peace!  I love my coffee, the smell and sounds of it brewing.  Special treat this morning...the birds in my trees were up at 5 am also.  Very talkative bunch this morning.......
