Its been my nightly routine this week to shower very late at night. Like at 3-4 AM.
It just happens to be that I am awake, and the house is quiet, and still. I love showering early, to start my day off right.
It feels so nice to be able to shower, so relaxing, and refreshing. I love to let the hot water spill over my body and just wash all of my worries away.
I also love to smell nice, put nice shower gel on, and when I get out, put on some nice lotion..body butter is my favourite lately.
Now that I’ve done that, I think its time for a coffee, and to see to Nitro. Its now 4:30 AM. I want to go outside in my yard, see what kinda weather is out there this morning.
Its too early to feed nitro yet, but I will let him out. And then I can enjoy my morning coffee in peace.
Yay for nightly routines that make you feel alive!

Tammy gave us a great writing prompt! It was, write the 12 steps of something! So here goes!
The 12 steps to relaxing!
Put on your PJ’S.
Make a mug of hot chocolate.
Sit and slowly drink it while you read.
After you finish a couple chapters of your book, go take a hot shower and brush your teeth.
Come back to your bedroom. Meditate for a while.
Cuddle with your dog or whatever pet you have.
Moisturise your skin, and take care of it.
Start winding down for the night.
Get into bed, and snuggle down.
Turn off the lights, relax.
Make a plan for tomorrow.
And as you drift off to sleep, be thankful for life, and for today.
I got a fantastic night sleep after I came home from the wedding. I rested too all day today, so now I am well rested, probably a little too well rested, I guess I dont think I’ll sleep much tonight, as I stayed in bed most of today, only got up to eat dinner, and then had to get up to actually go home from moms to my own house, went home around 6 Pm. Mom came with me to help me clean up the dog poop in the yard and do a couple more bits around my house, plus, I also had some shopping I had to bring home, fruit and water and stuff which mom very kindly went to the store today to get for me! So got home and chilled out some more, been doing some stuff online, downloading books to my PC, and now I’m just watching a little bit of tv, catching up on a few shows. I am planning on reading in a little while, I’m so happy I slept well though I needed the rest, as when we were away I didnt sleep good at all. I think I only slept like 2 or 3 hours on saturday night, it was just too hot to sleep, I just couldnt seem to settle.
Well I lay down at around 6 this evening. I thought I wont sleep, but I ended up napping, and only when my friend Denise texted me with our result did I wake up. She wanted me to call her, so I did. That woke me up but that was after a 3 hour nap. So now I am wide awake, and its late, I took my meds, my night meds, I am hoping I might go back to sleep soon.
I will try for sleep anyway. If I cant or don’t, it wont be the end of the world. I can lay around tomorrow, I don’t have to be anywhere tomorrow. All I will be doing is reading and relaxing.
Emotions run deep
I cant sleep
I try and try
Feel like crying
Tears dont come
Instead they pool
At the edges of my eyes
Threatening to engulf me
Sleep evades me every night lately
I want the comfort of rest
Peace and serenity
thats all I want
An end to this turmoil
That I am feeling
But an end is not in sight
and I dont think it will be
for a while
for rest and relaxation
and I hope
for the bright light of hope
to shine on me
Did you know?
That today is Take It Easy Day? In 1972, the Eagles released one of their greatest hits, “Take It Easy.” Celebrate today by just taking it easy and not stressing out!
Well its a really relaxed saturday here. A slow day for sure.
I got up late. Well around 10 AM which is late for me. I had slept really good though which was awesome. I went to bed last night at around 8:30. I watched some tv on my phone and was asleep by 10.
After breakfast this morning I went back to bed. I decided I needed some more sleep. And its the weekend, and I had nothing to actually be doing, so I decided it would be ok to rest a little.
When I got up I had an early dinner, mom had made chicken curry and rice, and we had some sweet potato fries with that. It was nice.
I’ve also drank 2 litres of water already today. I’m being mindful of drinking more water. I had a bottle with dinner, and another afterwords, and then two more later on.
After dinner mom and me went for a walk. I took Nitro with me. He enjoyed it and so did I. We went walking for 20 minutes, my phone said we walked for 1.1 miles. We did 1800 steps. The day was glorious, weather was beautiful, and now I am happy as I’ve gotten my exercise in for the day.
I have no plan for this evening, I just plan on relaxing and enjoying some quiet time, binge watching something on tv, etc.
