Not A Bug-Monster That Wanted To Eat My Hand



But actually a leaf that I flicked off my ailing lounge chair as I partially draped my blanket over it to dry, the other part hanging over the balcony rail that around here is called a deck nonetheless in the air: you know, not ground level but top floor. I think it’s high enough to qualify. In any case the glow of the jack-o-lantern is keeping watch. It’s still dark out. I’ve been up since 11:30pm. Doesn’t make sense? I passed out to a movie early, right after supper, slept for about 4 hours, innocently enough rose to go to the bathroom, decided to grab the laundry basket on the way back, and you can guess the rest. I thought, “no work tomorrow I can nap during the day” and kept going. I did catnap through another movie during the second wash, got up for the dryer, noticed it was 1:30am and mused, “who says you have to sleep” …


But I most likely will plug in something and see if I’ll close my eyes for a couple of hours now at 4:33am.


The temp’s dropping to 290, wonder if the blanket will freeze a bit. The sun is going to shine necessarily defrosting it dry.


I can breathe in how fresh it’s going to smell…

  1. Oh yes, I am familiar with getting going too late and not stopping. But then, sometimes I get a lot done in those wee hours, no interruptions.
    I bet the morning smelled crisp 😀

    1. We’ve had a couple of mornings it was down right early winter at 27 degrees. Stepping outside to snuff out the jack-o-lantern candle definitely refreshed (the only thing missing was the smell of burning leaves) and made steaming espresso very inviting, moreso than usual. I like the change in seasons! AND getting to fried green tomatoes, I was reminded of fried bell pepper rings I had at a restaurant some time ago … way back when my kids were small, at home, and we’d go out for supper once in a while. They were soo good – tomorrow’s menu is fried green tomatoes, fried zucchini, and fried bell peppers… followed by alka-seltzer…

      1. Love the change in seasons ❤
        Yes, do enjoy your fried food fest. Now that you've mentioned the bell peppers, I am thinking about roasted red pepper sammiches… also an Alka-Seltzer food 😉
