Late Night Thinking
I slept in this morning until 6:30. Pretty much unheard of for me. I'm going to be late for work if I don't get a move on.
I slept in because I went to bed a bit late and I woke up in the middle of the night, and lay awake for an hour and a half. I was thinking about my mom and the sale of our family home, and the fact that she's closing that sale and moving in two days. Also, I was thinking about how I have to place our drinks order for our Florida party in December and I've been dithering over when to call and what to get. I need to just do it.
There's nothing more boring than lying awake stewing about things at 3 a.m. So rather than talk about that, let's look at pictures of autumnal wood.
Dave and I watched the last episode of "Downton Abbey" last night. It certainly was a fast-moving conclusion, and while it didn't quite wrap everything up in a tidy bow, at least we're left with a sense of an ending. (To borrow a phrase from Julian Barnes.)
I'm kind of glad it's over, honestly. I've been feeling for a while that Downton had run its course. I'll miss Maggie Smith, though.
