Can't Sleep

My stars, it's 4:11AM and I am awake. I woke up a little after two - I think it might have been the bolt of lightning that lit up the universe and the clap of thunder that could wake the dead (or maybe just me) and haven't been back to sleep since. It has literally been raining all night. (I'm not complaining.)

I have much to do this weekend. Bunko is here Monday night and I've got to get the house clean. We do supper before we play. I always stress about what to serve. Any ideas?

And thanks so much to Paulina for The Adorable Blog Award. I love this girl! You totally need to check out her blog.

Congratulations on your award!

It rained here a lot too last night. But I didn't hear any thunder.

Could you do something like chicken salad and crossiants? A pasta salad and fresh fruit. Or a fruit salad.

I didn't hear any thunder, but I live in Hueytown, not sure where you live... It did rain quite a bit though!

Maybe a casserole? That could just be a one dish meal... I did a breakfast casserole the other night that was really good and pretty simple. Oooh, or white chili... I did that the other night and it was so fast to make and pretty good too!

I was up early too. The stream is really high behind the house. I'm with Wendy. Do Michelle's chicken salad and croissants. Put out a bowl of sliced grapes, mandarin oranges,chopped pecans and a plate of lettuce. Then everyone can add to the chicken salad what they want. Add some chips, dip and some wonderful Publix oatmeal raisin cookies and that's it. Hope you get some rest tonight. love, Mama

I was TOTALLY wondering several times today why you were commenting on my blog at 4am. I asked myself, "Does she stay up that late OR get up that early?"

Now I know - neither. You wake up in the middle of the night to read blogs.

I feel for you. Nothing stinks as bad as not being able to fall back asleep.

I struggle with sleep as well! Congrats on your award! The chicken salad sounds delicious, go with that!

Congrats on the award. I love rainy nights, expect when the thunder wakes me up. One good thing about getting up really early is you get a lot done. Can't wait to hear about the bunko party.
