It is when I most miss my pets (which, I might add, would miff me off to no end when they were with me for making me get up!). But I often watch the sun rise, listen to a train roll through town (love the sound of the train), and just enjoy the sounds of nature and silence. When I was younger, I resented those hours (because I'd fall asleep maybe an hour before I had to get up and go to work, leaving me groggy). But now it is blessed alone time.
that sounds so nice.......

I miss sleep... We used to have such a good relationship. I feel like sleep is keeping me in the doghouse.
