Well, what do you want?! LOL This is what's going on with me these days. Attempts at sleeping....and attempts at crocheting something. Usually flowers. What else is there to talk about?! :-))
This is my latest crochet project. And I know what you're thinking. Where is the slippers?! ^_^
Well, the slippers are still in the same place they were the last time I saw them. And they're still not assembled either. Ugh!...I can't wrap my semi non-sleeping brain around configuring anything that involved right now.
I say 'semi non-sleeping' because I "have" been getting some sleep. Just not "good" sleep...I have 'Sleep Apnea', and I use a C-Pap machine every time I want to go to sleep. It involves a full face mask and tubes running from my face, along with the sound of a breathing Darth Vader..."Luke, I am not your father." LOL...Yikes, where did that 35 year old reference come from?!! ^_^
Anyway!...*Teehee*...as of late, I've been falling asleep fine, but less than two hours later....UP! Sometimes it's less time...The machine is suppose to be set so that I sleep approximately 6 hours straight through, without interruption. But that hasn't happened for a long time now!
I've been attributing it to my hormonal changes, Spring allergies, an acquired sensitivity to perfumed smells...and cooking smells too!...or anything I could pin the disorder on, frankly! LOL Truth is I don't know why I'm all of a sudden not sleeping. My latest investigation has to do with the C-Pap machine. I was given a monitor type machine, so that they could record my patterns for a week and see if they could analyze what my problem is.
Guess what?...I can't sleep with the monitor machine! The level that the machine starts to test at is waaaay to low for me. It's like having someone put your head in a bag and saying: "Just relax. The oxygen levels will calibrate themselves so that you won't die in a minute."...Yeah! Right! LOL...So, what happens next?!...I'll keep you posted. :-]
In the meantime, I crochet my flowers! :-)
....Get a little nap where I can...
...and crochet some more flowers! LOL
What am I gonna do with all of these flowers?!...I don't know. They could be turned into anything at this point. If you want them, let me know. I'll list them in my Wuglyees Etsy shop for you for a very reasonable price. :-)
I could be blanketing the world with flowers, because clearly I've got...
...miles and miles! LOL
I was beginning to think that maybe the lack of sleep was driving me bonkers when I saw this huge swooping thing land in the backyard...a thing that I originally thought was an ostrich...just saying. It was moving kinda big and kinda fast! :-))
And YES! I did get a picture of it!...
The size of my backyard, and my picture taking skills, are making it look a whole lot smaller than it was. TRUST ME! When it took to flight hubby and I were so mesmerized that we forgot to click the camera!...We still aren't exactly sure what it was. A vulture?!...an eagle?!...a wild turkey?!
Whatever it was was probably attracted there by the same thing that attracted two huge blackbirds to the woods yesterday. We don't know what that was either, but the woods were the main attraction yesterday...I hope nothing is dead out there! O_O Hubby didn't wanna go look!...Can't say I blamed him either! I didn't wanna watch anything yesterday except the Wimbledon Men's Final. :-)
Congratulations to Roger Federer! He did it again!! And now he's the world number one again too!...Wonder what the former world number one, Novak Djokovic is gonna think about that. O_O
Andy Murray played his heart out though. His speech at the end actually brought me to tears. I look forward to seeing him win a 'major' some time in the very near future. :-]
Okay...I'm off to try to get me a few more winks, along with hubby. That man sure knows how to sleep!! :-) Hopefully, pretty soon maybe hubby will be able to hang a sign like this one on our door...
I'm leaving you with a poem that's NOT MINE today!...Go figure! LOL It's an appropriate one by Robert Frost that I was reminded of when I was looking through JessicasGifts.By Robert Frost
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
