Day 514

Thursday | July 25th, 2013


This summer and this summer heat makes it hard to dream the days away so I haven’t been sleeping as much as I would on a comparative winter vacation. And my weekend activities have me up earlier than I’d like to be so when the evening rolls around I tend to be drowsy. I do a lot of napping in my chair. Lately I do a lot of nodding off while watching tv in the evening on my computer or mid-typing or mid-mousing.

Last night, my big solution to this perpetual drowsiness was to have a cup of Meow’s coffee. At 21.30. Coffee sometimes makes me sleepy, so I took this cup black. And … then I wasn’t sleepy until after 13.00 today. I went to bed at one in the afternoon, but going to bed woke me up so I played a game until sleep kicked in around three. I got up around nine and ate some food (more apples and peaches).

Tasks accomplished today:

  • watch nine episodes of season 4 of Farscape back-to-back, check.
  • forge a silly number of gems in Infinity Blade II, check.
  • catch-up on silly writing project, check.
  • sleep four hours in a bed, check.

Clearly I’m still figuring out how to cope with this vacation/time vortex thing.

When we had the bathroom done, we wanted to design our own window for the part of the wall which straddles the storage space along the side of the house. This way we could have clean airflow through
