Restful Weekend Nights

Well, sometimes in life we have bad days, and sometimes we have bad nights. Well last night was one of them. I started painting at about 7:30 p.m. and 15 minutes into the painting, blackout… the electricity was gone. So I got up and started turning off the lights in the house… except for a few–to save the electricity when the power came back on. The electricity suddenly came back about 5 minutes later, so I got back up and turned on more lights and then sat back down to continue painting, however I was a tad frazzled as it was now raining, thunder was clapping all around me and lightning was surrounding me… another blackout… and my paintbrush stayed on the page — too long — — yikes! I then got up, and started thinking that I had to give this up… when the lights came back on. I finally managed to finish the painting in quite a hurry, with many blurry moments.

My night had just started.

I got to bed at 11:30 p.m., woke up all of a sudden at 1:30 a.m. as Pyper was howling in the house, running to and fro, in a frenzy. I shuffled through the house and turned on the lights, to see three beautiful baby raccoons eating in the bird feeder. Pyper managed to break a plant glass holder, as I was bringing in the bird feeder from outside after scooting off the raccoons (they just looked at me with their big brown eyes), swept the floor and… guess what? I was wide awake by then. So back to bed, turned on the TV and by 3:00 a.m. I finally feel asleep. At 6:00 a.m., my radio turned on… I had forgotten to close my alarm. Then at 7:30 a.m. Guy came back home… so with very little sleep I got up and I guess that I will not be at my best today. Might as well go with the flow, and relax. Hah! I love weekends ;-) They are so restful, are they not?
