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:
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.
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
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.
