Friends, I’m sleepy.
Last night, we had amazing incredible AWESOME lightning storms. It started around 9:00 p.m. As I mentioned before, part of “bringing me back” includes breaking out the Canon. You’ll be proud of me; it happily resides on the dining room table…and is being used!
Anyhoo, last night, I went for a quick walk, and on my way back to the house, I caught the first flash. My eyes lit up as I noticed the storm brewing to the north. It was going to be incredible! And it was. My camera settings were all messed up, so it took me a bit to reconfigure (thanks, bf, for the great googling skills!), but once I did, I was able to capture some beautiful shots. I stayed up until 11 p.m. catching these shots (wayyyy past my bedtime!).
And then, when the bf came to bed two hours later (because that’s how he rolls), I woke up to see our room lighting up with more flashes! I was awake until 3 a.m. for this one. I love me a good lightning storm!
And THEN (but wait, there’s MORE!)…at 5 a.m….KABAM! HUGE thunders, right over the house, complete with lightning brightening the bedroom and a downpour of rain (that I’m sure my garden appreciated).
Needless to say, sleep apparently wasn’t on my agenda last night. And I skipped the gym because of it. And may have just been physically and mentally out of whack because of it.
But tomorrow is a new day. And tonight, there isn’t a cloud in the sky. And because of my occasional obsessive/compulsiveness, I’m thankful for the lack of storms. Rest is definitely on my agenda for tonight.
Sleep well, friends.
Have an awesome day!
