It's Saturday Night

It's Saturday Night!  Well, actually five a.m. Sunday morning.  Up at three... reading journals, checking on Traveling Dave,

Took a drink of pineapple juice, right out of the bottle, standing at the fridge.  Bachelors can do that. Opened the hall door and let it stand open as I type.  Night caregiver stopped to see why I was up.  "Just felt like writing."

I speculate on how much of the population lives in communal buildings with halls, voices in the hall at night making one curious, and the noises of neighbors stirring at night, and how much live in houses with yards and fences and cats yowling and dogs barking.

There is usually a trash truck picking up containers at four am, but not this morning.  I wonder why.  Will Starbucks have a place to throw their used cups if yesterday's detritus is still around.

The night is full of adventure whether you are rural or urban. 

There is lots to read, and probably even people to chat with if I feel like it.

Oh, I am going to feel sleepy tomorrow, having spent hours out of bed...but tomorrow (today actually) is Sunday, and I can sleep then.  Curious upside down life, isn't it.

We have a neighbor that has two dogs that bark some at night. One sounds really loud. They are better than they used to be. They make them come into the house when it get late late so that helps. The family are night owls and stay up until almost morning. Car doors slam a lot. The carport is not far from the window where I sleep. Always something for us to grumble about huh? Helen

I was up late last night myself. I kept checking on the progress of the moon. It was supposed to look the largest on the horizen than it has and will the rest of the year. I think tonight too. I missed it. I can't see the horizen for all the trees.

Chuck,
I know exactly what you mean about so much to do at night.  Well, you used the word adventure, I'd say for myself, it is just busyness.  Although I'm not normally a night owl, for some reason I sometimes just like being up in the night.  I have my computer, stuff I have taped, sit on the porch and see if anyone else is up, and always things to read.  My only trouble is that I work, and then I have to get ready for that at 6:00 a.m., so I now I try to time myself and give myself a time to be back to bed.  But I am looking forward to the day that, that won't matter and I can be up anytime I want.    ~Margo

I was up at 4:30 playing dominoes and chatting online with someone from Florida. Isn't is nice to be able to do these things and not have to get up to go to work the next morning? Paula
