Random Monday-ness

I am a good sleeper. It's one of my skills. My fitness tracker says I have slept an average of 7 hours and 59 minutes over the last 3 years. As I get older, I hit some challenges. My nose gets clogged and then my mouth gets so dry it wakes me up. (I probably snore like a buzz saw, too.) I often wake up and adjust the adjustable bed - I did a couple of times last night but then went right back to sleep. And, my fat or old age or something prevents me from sleeping in the same position for very long so there's a lot of waking and moving around but I can generally go back to sleep easily.

I don't like to sleep in. Any sleep about about 6:30 makes me feel groggy and late, like I've already missed some of the day. But, I'm perfectly fine missing it at the other end - going to bed early. After I listen to my audio book while playing games on my tablet for a bit, I turn out the light, crank up the bed and tell Echo to shuffle the Sleep Songs playlist. This is a play list of from Amazon Music's Healing Sleep Songs. They actually have a bunch of different sleeping sounds/music - waves and rain and yoga/massage/chime things - but these are some actual lullabies and some lovely piano pieces and just a really random selection. I rarely hear the second piece.

I totally get that being able to sleep comfortable, successfully, peacefully night after night is something to be very grateful for and I really am.

Tomorrow I will be out most of the day but today is just a regular day of sewing and piddling and baseball and stuff. I do need to go down to the garage and clear out the car. I have a tendency to use it for storage. I now there are some Diet Dr. Peppers in there and some boxes of Kleenex that I didn't bring up after a grocery trip.

It's another cloudy and beautifully cooler morning again. I saw a report yesterday about temperature predictions for areas of the United Sates in the next 20-25 years. 1. I have no intention of being alive anyway BUT 2. Seattle was one of the few places in the country that isn't expected to fry. Nice.

Ok, time for me to get started doing nothing. hahahahahah
