See this Hobbit House? Okay, I know it is a birdhouse. But I like the sound of Hobbit House better, don't you? I want to climb into that tiny hole and sleep for three days. Seriously. Although, I think the caterpillar on the roof, might beat me to it.
You see, I have always had "whacked" sleep patterns. Always been a super light sleeper, even as a child. However, ahem..., with this getting older thing, it has brought along it's own sleep agenda. One I am not too fond of.
Every once in a while my "whacked" sleep patterns go from bad to worse. Mercy!
In the last three days, if I am really super lucky, I maybe have had 12 hours of sleep. I am in zombie mode. I am a cranky girl. Nope, not a happy camper. Seriously, seriously, sleep deprived. I no sooner fall into a deep slumber, only to wake up - wide awake. Then I will fall back to sleep, and once again, find myself wide awake. Sometimes five or six times in one night. Okay seven times in one night, but who's counting? My own sleep deprived self, that's who's counting!
On the occasions that this does happen, finally there will come a day, or I should say a night, when I fall into a complete oblivious state of unconsciousness. I am waiting. Please, night of oblivion, please come soon?
Usually, after a night like that, I am completely back to normal, and roaring to go!
So tonight, rather than cry my blues, which forgive me, I know I am doing here...I went out to the garden for some cheer. It kind of helped.
The wind was blowing intensely when I took this picture, but here is the sweet Delphinium. What would a garden be without this lovely flower?
Here we have a plant that has been with me for years. Probably 12 years...in a pot that I transplanted into the ground. It is a type of Geranium, although I have forgotten the name.
Here is a close up of the flower:
This lovely plant throws seeds to the wind, to plant elsewhere in the gardens. I so love that! See? I am cheering up already! Okay.....I am fibbing.
Signed, one seriously, sleep deprived, cranky girl. If you don't hear from me for a couple of days...I have fallen asleep in the Hobbit House...hopefully to get some much needed zzzzzz's, very sleepily yours, Ina
P.S.: Happy Canada Day Everyone! When I awake from my slumber, I hope to have a new dessert recipe to share - will keep everyone posted! 🙂
