April Showers A Little Late

It was raining when we went to bed last night, it rained all day today and as I type this blog it is raining so hard the noise is quite noticeable on our metal roof.  I remember as a child loving to spend the night at Grandma and Grandpa’s when it was raining so I could listen to the rain on the roof.

I took pity on the cowboy today, not feeding him any more tofu.  At least I let him have bacon for dinner tonight—bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches—I love those little Campari tomatoes from Costco.  We did have a meatless lunch—beans with lots of veggies—potatoes, cabbage and carrots.  And Rollie—I cooked cabbage a new way today—roasted in the oven with a little olive oil, salt and pepper—delicious!!  I am going to try roasting it on the grill next!  Of course I didn’t get the cowboy to eat any cooked cabbage but he did eat coleslaw. 

As Brenda well knows, not sleeping is terrible—I hardly ever have trouble sleeping but last night was one of those nights.  1am and I was still awake.  Part of my problem could have been one of our little solar butterfly lights outside.  Because we are usually early to bed and both sleeping we don’t notice the amount of light that little solar light sends into our bedroom.  It changes colors—clear, green, red and I watched it reflect off the glass of a picture frame for what seemed like half the night—that little butterfly may have to find a new home—somewhere no where near my bedroom!

So, I didn’t get much done today—I tried quilting but just couldn’t get my brain to work.  It was all I could do to figure out how to feed us today!
