Last night

I slept in my own bed in my own house. It has been months since I have had so much room to sleep in a bed. I broke down and spent the money for a pillow-top mattress and Ooh does that feel goooood on my tired, old, body! I was so tired yesterday I went to bed early about 8pm. I tossed and turned for a while before falling asleep. I got up at 11pm and 1am for a potty break then snoozed till 4am. Ya know there ain’t much to do at 4am unless you’ve got cows to milk or you’re leaving to go someplace. So I went back to bed and laid there listening for the sounds one hears at night. Far away there was a freight train passing by I could hear the rumble of the cars on the tracks. Unlike some places I have lived in they didn’t use their horn all through the crossings, thanks RR guys I appreciate you not using the horn. All of a sudden I woke up and it was bright outside checked my watch it was almost 8am. I started moving and my back wasn’t for that idea it took me awhile to persuade it to let me stand upright and move around. I got breakfast going and sat at the table looking out at the mountains-the sun sure was bright!

After breakfast I did a some household chores and then headed over to the family’s place about a half hour drive from mine and checked in with them and how they were doing. While there I collected a few things I thought I would need to bring back to my house. Later I went grocery shopping to fill-out my larder so I can cook on a regular basis. Tonight was pasta and fake meat sauce, I used soy crumbles for meat and it came out good. Everything is cleaned up now and I get to spend happy time with my computer.
