Great idea, PF. We have a nice 3 way walking flashlight that shoots a beam ahead as well as straight down at your feet. I use it to walk our dog in the winter when it gets dark early, think I got it from Herrington catalog. I'm night blind, and it works well for me.

LOL! I'm about to wake Latte' up and tell her it's time to sleep. It means she'll be in much sooner to walk all over me and settle down. Instead of in a couple of hours and wake me up.

fter the ice cream it's tip toe to the slicing glass doo and watch the solar lights change colors. I love these things they are so pretty andI find if that doesn't do the trick, i wander into the kitchen, shut the doors and and make the dough for foccacia. This for me is addicting and now since I have a new toy tiny pies are the passion around here.

I do that to my cat too sometimes. I'll even mimic the way he wakes me if I'm really irritated with him. Like if he puts his front paws on my cheeks, presses his nose to mine and mews at the top of his kitty lungs, then whacks me in the eye when I try to ignore him, I put my face right in front of his and exclaim, "Hi Nimbus!" and then laugh when he scrambles to keep from falling off the back of the couch. That's what he gets for putting his paw in my eye.

I work thirds and have for the most part since graduating from high school. The hubby has worked a variety of shifts. It's pretty common for me to be the only one up. When I'm at home and no one else is up I just do things I'd normally do. I quietly work on the house or browse the internet. I listen to music or do late night grocery store runs. I also try to find some me time where I can do something creative. And if I know there is a big meal to cook the next day sometimes I'll do some prep work the night before.

Easy for me since you guys are all up when I'm supposed to be sleeping lol!
I just come and browse DC with a cup of warm Milo or Hot Chocolate and maybe an alcoholic drink if we have any in the house.

You know, that reply really shouldn't have made me snort laugh through my nose. Glad I wasn't drinking anything.
