My wild nights these days include - for the most part - a small dog, a sewing machine (usually), a book (almost always), and a cup of tea. As I age, I find that early morning is my favorite time of day and have come to appreciate going to sleep early as well. Back in the day I remember falling asleep with a book at night - often very late at night. These days I usually fall asleep before I even open the book which is fine. I spend much of my time alone now. Well as alone as I can be with four dogs - two of which are almost always glued to my side or sitting on my lap. I thoroughly enjoy having a cup of tea and reading - right now I'm reading Gillian Flynn's Dark Places. It has taken about a hundred pages before I was hooked but I'm enjoying the story. It's a little dark for me but since I plan on a little Gladys Taber next, I'm not too worried about the mood I'll be in after finishing such a gloomy book. Right now I only have 1 book going - unusual for me - but I haven't had a chance to stop at the library and pick up the Billy Bryson book that is being held for me. Bill Bryson always makes me smile.
