Barely Damp

There was a possibility of rain predicted for today, but though it has clouded up quite nicely, so far all we've had is a few sprinkles and some mist. The possibility remains tomorrow, though, so I remain hopeful. We're expecting a much cooler week ahead, with lots of clouds, and the possibility of rain again about midweek. Given the lack of sunlight, the blooming of the roses is apt to be delayed. As early April is a bit too soon for full-on spring anyway, I'm not disappointed at it being put off for another week. I wouldn't mind seeing it put off until May, if we get enough rain to keep things green a bit longer. The only thing that would annoy me would be a long, gray, chilly spell that stayed dry.

My sleep pattern remains unpredictable, and I have no idea if I'll be able to get my cat together to go shopping tomorrow. Last night was sleepless again, and I didn't get to sleep until very late this morning,then woke up about three o'clock in the afternoon again. As three o'clock is usually the hour I go shopping, it would be very inconvenient to have the same pattern repeat tomorrow.

This is one of those situations in which I wish I could use medication to get to sleep, but that has never worked out well for me. Any sort of soporific leaves me confused and exhausted for days on end. If I don't get to sleep by five o'clock this morning I think I might resort to raiding my beer stash. Alcohol isn't perfect for getting to me sleep, but it works way better than any pill I've ever tired, and the aftereffect is less intense.

The last time I went outside I could see brief flashes of stars among the clouds. They must be th inning out. It is very still and quite now. I don't even hear the frogs croaking. There might still be rain later tonight. It will be nice if there is. The sound of it might make me sleepy.
