April 3rd, 2011.

It’s no secret, I LOVE winter.  And I always dread the end of that season. Spring is a gateway to summer, which is the least favorite season for cave-dwellers like myself.  However, the beauty outside today can’t be denied.  Spring will not let me think the worst of it this day. The breeze is warm and sweet smelling.  The daffodils are now showing their happy faces unafraid of being stung by the cold.  Our old yellow kitty is lying on the porch enjoying the sun’s warmth instead of begging at the window to come back inside.  Lucas is strapping up the roller blades for a trip to the park.  Perfection.  His creation, His reminder to me to revel in life.

I have never been one to sleep well.  I mark night time like I do work- 3 more hours, 2 more hours…20 more minutes.  I rarely dream and when I do they are absolute nonsense.  I envy my husband who can sleep so deeply and dream vivid epic dreams.  This afternoon I fell asleep on the couch.  I dreamed I was crawling down our hallway.  Lovely.  I plan and schedule sleep simply so I can function.  I do not enjoy it like Robert does.  It is probably part of why I am so disturbed by how much he can sleep- at times 24 hours straight. Not even a bathroom break.   It’s so incredibly peaceful to watch.

Am I jealous?  Maybe a little.
