About Last Night …
I think I should have taken last nights vivid red skies as a warning, or portent of things to come. Realising that maybe Thor and Odin were, once again, engaged in a battle staining the skies red with the blood of their enemies … or, that Mother Nature was simply putting on a good show. Either way, maybe the events that unfolded might not have been such a surprised had we heeded the import of such beautiful but beguiling red skies.
As it was, despite wanting to go to bed early last night, it was after eleven by the time we hit the sheets. And then, tossing and turning, neither of us could find sleep. We both ended up getting out of bed, going to the loo, having a drink, and trying again to find sleep. But even as we drifted off into NeverNever Land someone, or, something, or, imbued with supernatural abilities, one of our plants leapt off a DVD unit and crashed to the floor at just after 3:30 in the morning.
We both jumped out of bed at the sound wondering what was going on, and on looking around the dinning area found said plant lying on the floor, soil strewn all over the place. Triffids anyone?
No, neither of us decided to do house cleaning at that ungodly hour and while trying to figure out how the plant managed to get from shelf to floor, went back to bed in the vein hope of actually getting some sleep. It was not to be. No sooner had we said goodnight to one another, than outside, in the dark of night, our Song Sparrow decided to serenade us with two strands of the most breath taking harmony that we both said the same thing, at the same time, and burst out laughing!
So now, sat here writing this weird little post about, well, nothing, I’m yawning listening to said bird outside my office window singing his heart out, and wishing I could have another 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
Maybe tonight we’ll watch the skies and heed the warnings and, just watch a movie, on the couch, till we both fall asleep under the blankie!
And you, how was your night?
