I was going to bed…

Untitled46_001

To sleep and dream,

to rest and relax,

to gently close my eyes.

But

there’s noise outside

shouting about nothing,

calling loud words

letting the world know

How loud they can be.

The cars are roaring

up the hill,

fast paced and noisy,

chasing each other

One great rush of sound.

And the TV downstairs is too loud

The cats are wailing outside

The clock is ticking now.

It’s 8am

The alarm goes off.

Night gone I’m still awake.

Sleep eluded.

Dropping off

I’m shattered… I’ve been out most of the day in the garden and at a singing event and delivering some leaflets.

Trouble is I start to doze off and then funny gobbledygook starts appearing on my screen such as:

-hhh+h or vvhhgghh or cxdddddjjn

Where my fingertip trails across the screen while I had fallen asleep.

I just did it again but have deleted the scrambled letters .. I need sleep!

Chose the image because it’s bright, cheery, and makes me feel awake.

Where’s the painting?

I haven’t done anything since finishing Jupiter Blue, except for painting scenery.

I have ups and downs with art. As my mom used to say, and as I said to someone recently “don’t force it phoebe” in other words don’t overdo things….

I will try and get organised again. I have things to finish and I think I’ve said I will do stuff. But with this cold I’m a bit mixed up. I need to rest, but I’ve always got bored easily.

I’ve made one decision though. I want to start trumpet lessons again….

Yawn

What a day! I’m tired out but still got things to do. I wanted to write something here tonight but have not had time. My eyes are sore from the eyedrops this morning and my eyelids are drooping. Twice my phone has slid out of my hands onto the floor.

I was planning to do a drawing of the Chinese new year, but it hasn’t happened. I’m listening to some Gershwin on the TV. Can’t remember what it’s called. Thinking about getting a decaff coffee or a gin and tonic. Not sure which.

It’s midnight and I need sleep but I have visitors in the morning and the housework has not been done because I’ve been so busy. Some of its just straightening chair covers or tidying away papers. No problem really, just a lot of little things.

Anyway now I’ve had a rest I’d better get on……

Sleepy

I have been So tired lately. Whether it’s the low light levels or late nights. I just keep falling asleep in the day. I think I need to shake myself awake a bit more. But the last couple of days has found my partner falling asleep in the day too. So perhaps it’s something to do with the bug we have both just got over. I didn’t feel like drawing much so I used a stencil section of my sketcher app to put together a little picture.

Right, better get something done before the day is totally gone.

Morning

A blue bar of cerulean sky contrasts with sodium lighting as the sun creeps back up the sky. Of course it is the Earth turning on its axis that makes the sun appear to rise when it is actually us turning towards it.

The cloudy skies have prevented me seeing a fuzzy green comet which is in the sky somewhere above Orion, possibly near the constellation Gemini. I’ve tried looking out each night but the weather is too murky. I probably need to take the car out into the countryside to see it.

More cloud has blown across the sky so it’s actually got slightly darker. I heard a brief song from a bird about half an hour ago but the dawn chorus tends to be muted at this time of year. It improves in spring and early summer when the birds that inhabit the garden start to look for mates.

Listening to radio 4on the bbc and hearing news from around the world.

Life continues, partner is snoring. I might be soon. I think I will catch another 40 winks…
