the ghost of a jar stretching off the windowsill.  with a tree sprouting from it's innards.  i love the way this photo mirrors my muddy state of mind.  it's gray, the earliest gray of morning.  and my sleep was interrupted all night.  i couldn't find a position comfortable enough that i didn't awaken.  and i'm pretty sure it's because yesterday i gave in to my fatigue and spent the day lounging with edgar on the couch.  refusing to do much of anything. my laziness re-paid me with a sleepless night. 
this morning there are warnings of a storm that could swirl into infamy with the potential of it's damage.  we don't seem to be in it's direct path, but so many are.  little communities like ours.  and major cities as well.  i hope the warnings have been overstated and the destruction is minimal. 
i'll get the kettle boiling now.  clear my mind with some steaming tea. and head off into this morning, immersed in fabric.

  4. I have many of those restless nights! I hate tossing and turning trying to find a comfortable spot in the bed. HAH Last night was one of those nights too. My legs ached all night.

    We are all bracing for Hurricane Sandy headed towards the East Coast. They are forecasting that it will hit along the New Jersey shore and head up into the New England states. I bet this is the storm that might cause some bad weather up your way. They closed the NYSE, subways in New York and cancelled many airline flights headed out east. I sure hope everyone will be okay. We are very far removed from this storm and my thoughts are with everyone who is in the track of the storms way.

    Have a wonderful day, Annette! :)

    1. oh, sweet demie.....we're safe. i made us sleep downstairs in our little cave of a library. in case a tree fell on the house and came through the roof. it didn't and we had a cozy little night.
      i just wish everyone had been as fortunate as we have been.
      love to you.....
