I had an hour nap this afternoon. Or Monday afternoon. I am not very active due to my hip and spine problems. So I don't require much sleep. And sinice I live alone, I can sleep whenever I want to. I don't have to go by any schedule. On days when I go shopping or have some other activity outside my home, I find that I do get tired around midnight and will fall asleep for the whole night.

The TV is always on, but a lot of the time I have the sound muted. Right now while I am on the computer, I have it muted and am listening to a Welsh folk song that I have loved since childhood. All Through The Night. I have a CD that my son helped me with. It plays for about 1.5 hours of the same song over and over. Harry was kind enough to guide me to the site. And I can't thank him enough. I had this song played at my daughter's wake when she died.

We have not gotton out of our p.j's all day. It feels good to just stay home & relax. It seems there is always something to do. It is so nice to have a down day. Our 13 year old is bored of course.

That is the kind of day when a board game comes in handy. Scrabble, Yatzee, Monopoly. It gives the family a chance to have some quality time together. And a lot of fun.

Not the one called "Bolt" LOL! He was so fat his belly dragged on the ground. The winner of the "Little Smokies"(under 3 years) was a cutie named Bean. The winner of the "Frankfurters" was Dudley, a long-haired gent and a sweetheart. He thought I was a good place to hide from the sun. The winner of the "Bratwursts" a cuddler named Lulu.

There was a Great Pyrenees, looking for adoption, who kept finding me and would just lean on me. The handler said I would have to take her home...I reluctantly said No...

150 adoptees (feline and canine) at the beginning of the event, five hours later only 20 were left.

Oh, good news! Hope the remaining furbabies can find a home. What a wonderful cause!
