Fitful sleep

I went to bed after 11 pm, past my usual time. But I couldn't sleep. I think I may have gotten three or four winks in before I was awake again and trying to find a comfortable position. It was cold and my comforter wasn't doing the job. When I am cold my body keeps tense, trying to warm itself, and my hope of sleep goes away. (I often think of those in atrocious conditions, like the people on the trains to death camps or the prisoners in Guantanamo and I can't help but think about comfort. How little they had or have, how much I have.)

Finally I got up, turned the heat a bit up, closed the window in the rear door (I had opened it because it was hot the day before yesterday), and thought about making a post to 2000 bloggers. I have contracted for the Thursday "open thread", meaning I write a short, upbeat piece that includes at least one link to one of the blogs in the group (there aren't 2000 yet, by the way; if you want to join, it isn't difficult, only two restrictions), and make the post open-ended, inviting responses. I went there and wrote the post, so now I don't have to dwell on it while lying in bed.

And here I am at the computer. It's after four in the morning. I had this thought of getting going early and weed-eating the front yard...maybe I won't be at it as early as I'd hoped.
