Morning person

I have always been a morning person as far back as I can remember. I've rarely seen midnight. But beyond sleep patterns, my brain is on full cylinders first thing in the morning and I start losing them about 7 or 8 am. Gradually, throughout the day, I'm less sharp, more slow, until I close my eyes to recharge and then wake up fresh and fast and on point.

I've been playing the bubble busting game on my phone. It gets increasingly more difficult with each round. I'm now to the point where I'll abandon it soon (and, for sure, start another one). I can replay each failed level over but I lose interest. I'll make a couple of tries, fail and then move on to do other things.

I've noticed this week that a level I could not complete after many tries the night before, is easy peasy if I do it in the morning. It's kind of freaky, the difference in my skill level night to morning.

asher63 posted a link for me to a fancy new pair of high tech swim goggles. I love the idea and would really love to try them and would be buying a pair right now... if... I had a pool to swim in for the next month. Sigh. I hate that I have to wait. But, on the other hand, I really don't need another swim tracker. I have one that keeps me posted (via ear buds) on how many laps I've done and what my pace is. I have my watch which gathers all manner of details swim data. And... it does not matter! I swim for an hour and stop. The clock on the wall handles that info for me.

And, I have no real desire or need to swim faster or better. But, I would be buying a pair today if I had a pool to swim in. Maybe in a month I'll lose my FOMO. Yeah, right.

I got a rather odd text from my sister-in-law. It's odd because it sounds like the middle of a conversation and I am missing the first part. But, I gather, from parsing that my brother's first day with his new knee was rather painful and today is better. At least I now know he survived the surgery.

The quilt batting arrived and now I think I need to make two quilts - one very light weight and one twice the weight. The biggest obstacle, I'm discovering, is feline. Cutting out fabric is a little bit of an issue but I fired up the auto laser pointer and that distracted them. But there is no distracting from the cutting up of the batting. They think that stuff is the greatest stuff ever.

Fortunately, it won't take long to get it all cut out but I have to wait until they are fast asleep to even start. Right now they are the very opposite of fast asleep.

I finished watching Keeping Faith on Acorn TV. Excellent. Series 2 will be on Acorn at the end of this month. I really do like Acorn TV. I like the offerings but also the Roku app is so simple and fast and easy to use.

So yesterday, the cats where taking turns in my lap. As each settled in, I would massage their paws to get them used to it for nail clipping. Biggie is the most amenable to this. So I got out the clippers to grab a nail or two. He decided that the time wasn't right. And the next thing I know, the clippers are missing. No worries. I have a backup pair. I went and got them and put them by the chair. I turned around twice and the backup pair was missing!

I finally located the first pair in the yarn. The backup pair is still MIA. So kittens 549 Susan 4
