What do you do in the wee hours?

Like many people who are on this web site, I'm a bit of an insomniac. OK, full blown insomniac. I know that people in the food biz often are up at odd hours. What do you do when you're awake an everyone else in the universe seems to be asleep? Mostly I come here, or I read. What do you do?

I am such a night owl!
I do the same. Usually dc or reading. Something quiet. Sometimes folding laundry. Reading helps me get sleepy, so that's what I go for most of the time.

During the week try to sleep, gotta break the big stones into little ones in the AM.

But on Friday and Saturday nights I can get up in the middle of the night and play on the computer, read, write, watch TV. Can always nap later in the day.

I live for these times.

Watch The Food Network on cable, hang out online, read, make corned beef sandwiches and guzzle rootbeer. Occasionaly I play Monopoly Tycoon on my cell phone. I've always been a nightowl, it's so peaceful in the wee hours..

I am a night owl myself but I am never up this late! I am having a difficult time fitting in at my new job and I think about it more than I should so that is keeping me awake. I usually am accompanied by my DH and we watch TV, play video games, play with the kitties or I come on here to DC. I like the peacefulness as well.

Looking out over the hills I see the sky is no longer black.

There have been a few cars going by.

And my world is starting to bestir itself from slumber.

Oh, well, ta ta quiet night, time to start another day and week.

But will be here next week at the same time, promise.
