thoughts on sleep or lack there of


I sit here with the cat and dog, who by the way are thrilled to death that someone emerged from the closed door of the bedroom to feed them at 4:45 a.m., only because I fruitlessly tried to get just a little more shut eye at 3:00, 3:30, 3:45... Tell me, please. What the heck? Eh, you don't have to tell me. Hormones, baby. Middle-aged hormones.

Sleep is a funny thing. When we're teens, we easily sleep until noon. As we get older, we rise for our work or our babies or both. My thinking is that before it's over, I'll be going to sleep at 6:00 and waking at 2:00. Hey, at least it's a decent eight, right?

Maybe at this point I should just go with the flow. Get up after I wake at 2:30 feeling refreshed and thinking, before I glance at the clock, "Hey! I slept all night!".

A solid eight has turned into a halfway decent four.

So that's my rant for today.

What's yours?

Here's a Thought...

what's after 29?

It's not as much a thought as a challenge - or a game.
That's it! A game.

We could play "I Spy". I spy a suitcase!

I spy a belt!

I spy a 17 year old!

Top it? I think not.

Really. I dare you.

unreal good margarita pizza recipe

Two recipes in one week? Is the world turning? Are we in the twilight zone? I know! I think this heatwave is finally beginning to get to me. Don't question it. Let's just roll with it.

Tonight I was craving a margarita pizza. So, after checking around on the internet and comparing it to what I actually had in the pantry, I went to work. It was so unbelievably yummy that I am compelled to share...

Boboli pizza crust
fresh tomato, sliced
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbs. minced garlic
1 tsp. salt
mozzarella cheese
parmesan cheese
chopped fresh basil

In a bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, salt, and sliced tomato. Allow to sit for 15 minutes

After 15 minutes, remove the tomatoes and brush the pizza crust with the olive oil marinade.
Top with shredded mozzarella, basil, sliced tomatoes and bake in a 425 degree oven until done.

Add your favorite red wine and you are DONE! Enjoy.
