I lie there awake
It is three in the morning
Counting sheep in vain
Last night was the same
But I told my friend Derrick
That I’d count ponies
Check out his blog.
It won’t put you to sleep.
It is delightful reading
and his photography is superb!!
The Early Evening Light
Now I need to count ponies and try to get some sleep.
What works for you when you can’t sleep?

I also had a horrible night of sleep. I lost my purse Friday night. I only discovered it missing Sunday morning. I think it was stolen in the bar where we were. I loves that purse! I have to redo my driver’s license and cancel my bank card and get a new one. Grrrr!!!!!
Where’s the “sad” button when I need it? So sorry, DeDe! 🙁
I also follow Derrick and his amazing photos and stories of his daily adventures are a delight..
Sorry you were having a problem sleeping Jan.. For me I just breathe extra deeply and relax more with each deeper breath.. and it usually works, not always.. But these days I am sleeping better than once up a time.. <3
I’ll try that deep breathing. I did finally get 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Thank God!
Thank you so much, Jan 🙂
My pleasure! You bring so much joy to my day! <3
I have checked him out.. I have followed … and send you back a good nights sleep!
Thank you, your good wishes worked. I had 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep after I went back to bed. I’m glad you checked out Derrick’s post and added him to your following list. He is a delight! <3
Just like you!
Sometimes I try counting backwards from 100. Thanks for sharing and asking Jan.
Hmmm… thanks – I’ll have try that!
