I do not know what is going on, but I’ve been sleeping for total crap this past week. At least three times lately I have woken up in the middle of the night, unable to fall back to sleep. 2 of the 3 times (including today), I never did fall back to sleep, meaning essentially a ~3:00 wake up. Great!
I feel sleepy/ tired, but yet, I lay there, just awake. Not really fresh enough to just want to get up and start my day (at 3 a.m….?), but also not sleeping. It feels annoying and frustrating and like a waste of time. And of course, I then end up feeling crummy later in the day, because I’m TIRED.
Overall I do not have “sleep issues”, but I seem to have these little spurts where this happens to me. A bunch of days with poor sleep, then it goes away and things are fine again for a long stretch.
Who knows. Sigh.
Anyway, in other news, we had our first official snowfall yesterday.
I ended up working in the sunroom all day so I could enjoy watching the snow fall. Yet another perk of WFH.
Here are a few phases of the snow:
Morning, ~7:20 a.m.:
3 p.m., from my sunroom window:
6:30 p.m., evening walk with Ivan:
It was kind of the perfect snowfall. The ground was still warm enough that we didn’t get a ton of accumulation on sidewalks/ roads really. If all the snow could always ONLY fall on the grass and trees, that’d be perfect. 😉

And, a bonus- I’ve shared this multiple times before, but it’s maybe my all-time favorite quote. And in honor of the first snowfall, it feels fitting to share again. I will probably continue to share it every winter. 🙂
I am grateful for cozy fleece sweatshirts.
