Strange Sleeping Time Again
I'd planned to sleep at 6am and get up at 2pm. But I was still awake at 7am and came out to have the other half of the sandwich I had earlier (couldn't finish it). I petted Spirit until 7:30am and went back and read more* until 9am. When I woke up a bit before 2pm, I just turned the alarm off and slept until 5pm.
*It turns out that it's the formal writing that had thrown me. The earlier book didn't have so much of it, but I could see where the writing for the newer book came from. So I plan to finish the newer book.
I usually take trash and recycling out on Wednesday, but 5pm is when it's the hottest (90F today) so I'll see about taking it out tomorrow -- maybe early in the morning before I go to bed. I'm going to try pushing forward tonight -- after all, 9am is 16 hours from when I got up, so maybe I can get a couple more. Maybe I'll be sleeping in the recliner with Spirit, we'll see.
