Well that was weird. Last night was one of those nights I couldn't keep my eyes open, so around nine o'clock I decided to take a nap. Since I'd gotten up around ten o'clock in the morning I thought I would probably sleep an hour or two and then end up being awake most of the rest of the night, but I underestimated the allure of a cozy bed on a chilly night. Though I did wake up for a moment around eleven, all I did was turn over and go back to sleep, and I didn't wake up again until two o'clock. The only reason I got up then is because I had a cramp in my leg and needed to walk it off. I'm not so sure I'll be awake for the rest of the night now, either. I still feel tired— especially when I look at the unwashed dinner dishes waiting to be done.

When I stepped out into the back yard a moment ago I heard a bit of traffic on the freeway, and a couple of cars on nearby surface streets as well. It's so odd to be hearing traffic this late at night again. Three o'clock in the morning in Paradise could be as quiet as it was in the nineteenth century. It would be ten or fifteen minutes or more before you would hear a lone car making its way up the main road. But apparently people have things to do in Chico. Oh, and there goes another train right now. I think I won't be getting much nocturnal silence anymore.
