I have always told Ryan that one of my favorite parts of the day occurs the moment we crawl into bed together at night. We will chat and read and I love unwinding and relaxing at the end of a long day.
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved reading at night. I love getting lost in a story and reading until my eyes feel heavy and I can turn off the light and fall immediately to sleep.
Well, that is a lot easier to do when the book I am reading isn’t about a serial killer.
It’s much harder to turn off the light and drift peacefully to sleep when you’re dying to know if another person is about to turn up dead and you really want to see if your predictions about the murderer are correct.
Needless to say, I had a hard time falling asleep last night. But if you are looking for a book that sucks you in (when it’s not competing with House of Cards for your nighttime attention, that is), I highly recommend After Her!
Ryan and I slept in this morning which was glorious, except I drifted in and out of sleep and remember dreaming a rather intense dream about a murderer (I wonder where that one came from?) that used dogs to lure women in and kill them.
Sadie was in my dream and I remember coaching her to run to a neighbor’s house if a scary murderer approached. Because she’s totally trainable like that.
My dreams are usually pretty uneventful and frequently involve people I know. Ryan is the one who has action-packed dreams in our house, so this was a little unusual.
And wow, that was quite the tangent this morning, huh!? Moving right along…
Breakfast this morning included lots of good stuff!
Eggs + Cheese + Black Beans + Chicken Sausage + Chives + Spinach
Nice and filling!
Plus a hot mug of s’mores coffee with extra foam and a sprinkle of cinnamon on the side.
And now I’m heading out the door to the gym!
Have a great Wednesday!
Questions of the Morning
- Do you usually have action-packed dreams? Do you ever dream about people you know?
- What was the last book you read that was seriously suspenseful?
My dreams typically seem to be “real life” scenarios and frequently involve people I know from all different stages of my life.
