Two Random Thoughts Before Bed

1. It has been cold again. I went to bed Monday night and woke up shivering. Of course, for a deep sleeper like me, "woke up" is a slippery description.

My sleep-fogged brain knew that my body was cold, and the best solution it came up with was not a blanket. No, that would be sensible.

I found a little hand-warmer, the kind you unseal and put into your gloves on a cold winter day, and took it to bed with me. I think I held it against my chest, hoping it would warm my blood which would then circulate heat through my body.

I don't know. Everything was fuzzy. I really don't think clearly at night.

Woke up to SNOW in the hills around the lake. Yes, snow, below 2000'. In May, thank you very much.

2. We're up late (all of us) because we wanted to see the Space Station go by, since we actually had a clear night sky. You can see it too.

Still cold here, too. Had a burial this morning for a lady who died about a month ago. We had her funeral last month, but due to the frozen ground and all the snow, she was buried today. That is common in the Dakotas. The funeral homes save up the bodies till the spring. The ground is frozen 6 feet down and with all the snow, you can't see the grave markers, anyway.

I'm back from "blog suicide" and doing good, btw.

Wow, I knew they had to do that up north, but I didn't know the Dakotas were so cold!
