I'm not sure why, but my internal clock is giving me fits. Yesterday I slept in until 9:30am, and last night I just couldn't stay asleep after about 4 hrs. I finally got up before 5am and decided to go ahead and make coffee and breakfast. Bacon, eggs, and toast were a real treat this morning. It's like I'm wired or something; I usually go to bed at 11:00pm and get up at 8:00am. I hope I can soon get back to some kind of schedule.
The rain was pretty heavy all night, and I hope I get a little break in the weather later on this morning. My fuel tank is very low so I need to fill it up, and I want to see what sort of storage units or systems I might find to organize my maps and camping gear.
I think I found what I needed at Costco and made it back home before the rain started again in earnest. I fiddled around with the maps for a while and then at Noon I felt so tired I climbed back into bed and took a 2 hr nap, and I'm just now eating lunch. I need to be on more of a schedule if I'm going to eat the amounts I need.
It looks like March is going to come in like a lion for much of the country. We sure need the rain, and even more, the snow in the mountains since the snowmelt provides a big percentage of the state's water needs.
Ara called me earlier and told me she has landed her dream job. She starts next week. I'm so happy for her and hope she loves it, although all of us in CA were hoping she might move back to the west coast. I think Philadelphia is perfect for her except that the nearest family is in New York.
Right now it sounds like a train is rumbling over my roof. I like the sound of rain, but I absolutely hate it when it hits my roof with such force.
