After Dark

On nights, like tonight, when I work until closing time, I don't get home until about 1:00 a.m.

I come home to:
dirty dishes
unfinished chores
a hungry kitty
a sleeping husband
a puppy who eagerly laps my face

First, I tiptoe into the bedroom to kiss my sleeping husband right smack on the forehead, then the lips.

Next, I take the puppy outside to do what he needs to do.

Outside I:
soak up the silence
smile at the sparkling frost
bask in the light of the nearly full moon

After tucking the puppy into bed, I am still full of energy.

This early, early morning I:
put away dishes
washed dishes
folded all three loads of clean laundry
made husband's lunch
cleaned kitty's box

Lately, all my energy comes out to play after dark.


  1. I can see by the post time you have energy well into the early morning hours. I hope you can sleep late.

  2. Alex,
    I happened to catch your blog. I hope things are going great for you. Did you have a great Christmas? Are you gearing up for the New Year? Just wanted to write and say Happy Belated Christmas and Merry New Year.
