I've been absent due to being busy this week. It's been mostly work that has kept me preoccupied, peppered with a debate, getting lost in a good book (thank you John Sandford), dodging political phone calls, decorating for Halloween, finishing Pam's mittens (which will ship today), and watching the Detroit Tigers sweep those Yankees out of Dodge!
Ah...it's good to have a winning team to watch, and ours has not disappointed!

I've also not been sleeping well at night. Working day shift does that to me. My mind races as I lay down and if I do fall asleep, I awaken reluctantly as the alarm rings at 6 AM. Groggy, I get up and pour the coffee right away--if I've had the foresight to pre-program the pot the night before--and try to chase out the cobwebs. Not this morning though. It's my day off, and I awakened at 5:22 AM with an amazing idea: I am going to pay one of the women at the local yarn store to do the finish work on this cardigan. I can't crochet, but she can and she loves to do finishing work for a little cash in exchange.
I, satisfied with my burst of brilliance, snuggled against Leo and went right back to sleep.
Another problem solved and 3 extra hours of sleep.
