Three Things

Three things for now:

  1. I am really frustrated with the sleep issues I’ve been having. I fall asleep just fine, but wake up 4 or 5 hours later to pee and then can’t get back to sleep. Usually, I give up after at least a half hour and get up and futz around on-line. I may get another hour or two of sleep later on in the night, but I’m definitely not getting quite as much sleep as I need.

    Oddly, heavy rain seems to help me sleep. What definitely does not help is waking up from a weird and violent dream like the one I had last night that involved hiding from a guy with an uzi and several biological weapons.

  2. I really enjoy being able to bring together people who can help each other. I’ve had two opportunities to do this in the past couple of weeks and both made me happy.

  3. I am still enjoying what I refer to as cooking for the end of the world. This week’s grocery shopping was at Wegman’s and they had kosher Italian sausage, which led me to buy peppers as well. When I got home, I had a quick inspiration and found a recipe for Cajun jambalaya, which apparently differs from Creole jambalaya in not containing celery or tomatoes. I made it last night, which also used up the last of the chicken I’d had in the freezer and it was really delicious.
