I’m a night owl by nature but I really need some amount of sleep. Trying to figure out that knitting pattern, it was easier to knit after Vince turned the TV off and went to bed. Have I mentioned how much I dislike TV? Yes, I know I have. I can take short spurts of it . . like an hour tonight and maybe another hour in a few days. Vince has discovered Game of Thrones. Oh, my . . I think I’m going to lose my mind. There are 6 seasons (I think he said that) and in the past 4 or 5 days, we’ve finished Season 1. I do not like it! I do not like it at all!
So, I’ve been knitting with Game of Thrones on and I’m not paying attention to the TV, as much as possible, but I love it when Vince turns it off and I can knit with quietness. So I’ve been staying up late. In fact, it was Saturday night . . Sunday morning really, when Vince stuck his head out and said “It’s 3:30! Are you going to knit all night?” So, I went to bed and then between the dogs and roosters, there’s no sleeping past 6 a.m. around here.
Sunday night I thought I’d get to bed early. Nope, I was up knitting til a bit after midnight. Then Speck woke up at 3:30 a.m. I’m thinking a bug might have gotten in his ear but he was shaking his head and making all kinds of noises. I’d probably be doing the same thing if something got in my ear. I thought I had some ear medicine for him so I was up going through all the dog drugs and couldn’t find anything. Vince went by the vet and got some yesterday but since I was up with him at 3:30, I started knitting again. About 4:45 Speck had calmed down and I left him sleeping on his pillow in the living room and I went to bed. Again . . 5:45 and the roosters are crowing so I didn’t get much sleep.
Last night, I knew I’d get to bed early but I’m getting things ready for my favorite visitors and was still putting quilts in the washer/dryer at midnight. I remembered . . I can’t go to bed with this crazy dryer on so I had to stay up and wait for the dryer to finish . . which it did at about 1:15. Ye, roosters were crowing at 5:45, I think it was more like 5:30 but I managed to stay in bed til 5:45.
Monday I took a nap. Today I have a hair cut and a friend coming over so I don’t think I’ll get a nap in today but dang it, I’m an old woman now and I need my beauty rest! But, I also need to get this second sock finished and get this house ready for company.
